Glucosamine is an amino sugar and plays a key role in the synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids. It is naturally occurring in the human body and in shellfish. Primarily found in most body tissues, with the largest concentrations being in the joint and cartilage. It is one of the most abundant monosaccharides and is commerically produced by hydrolysis of crustacean exoskeletons or by fermentation of grains such as corn or wheat. Glucosamine is suggested to assist in the reduction in which rate of collagen (joint tissue) degrades. Athletes that have taken 3 grams of Glucosamine have shown also to reduce the rate of joint tissue degradation when participating in high impact sports such as running.
