What is NOW Vegetarian Glucosamine & MSM?

Unlike traditional Glucosamine which is derived from shellfish, NOW's unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians, because it contains only Glucosamine from a vegetarian source and not from shellfish.

Health Benefits Of Vegetarian Glucosamine & MSM

The main function of glucosamine is to activate the elements required for the repair damaged joints. Some people lack the ability, or have a hindered ability due to age, to manufacture glucosamine which plays a role in joint discomfort. MSM may help relieve joint pain and swelling - without the stomach damage, rebound pain, and joint damage associated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's), such as ibuprofen.

Why our Vegetarian Glucosamine & MSM is Unique

Now Foods MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of organic sulfur, a mineral necessary for the production of proteoglycans. NOW's unique and synergistic formula is suitable for vegetarians.

Glucosamine is an important building block needed by the body to manufacture specialized molecules called glycosaminoglycans, found in cartilage.

  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
