(From Wikipeida) Glucosamine is is an amino sugar
and a prominent precursor in the biochemical
synthesis of glycosylated
proteins and lipids. A type of glucosamine forms chitosan
, which composes the exoskeletons of crustaceans
and other arthropods
, cell walls in fungi
and many higher organisms. Glucosamine is one of the most abundant monosaccharides
It is produced commercially by the hydrolysis
of crustacean exoskeletons
or, less commonly and more expensive to the consumer, by fermentation of a grain such as corn or wheat. Glucosamine is commonly used as a treatment for osteoarthritis
, although its acceptance as a medical therapy varies.
MSM is on some organizations 'no' list.
