During Glucosamine studies, test persons will normally receive 1,500 mg (1/4 to ½ teaspoon) of glucosamine in an average serving. Warning: Persons who take blood-thinning medication should always discuss their glucosamine dosage with their doctor.
Specific Weight Information
Note: The above measurements display the amount of milligrams per amino equivalent to a 5ml metric teaspoon. Powders are loosely filled, levelled but not compacted.
HealthWise® Amino Powders are pure pharmaceutical grade powders and are packed by weight not volume, without the use of fillers or flowing agents. Some of the powders are slightly hygroscopic (retain moisture) and this can result in clumping. This can be broken apart with a spoon before taking or dissolved in water.
Glucosamine hydrochloride vs. Glucosamine sulfate
Glucosamine hydrochloride is often preferred to glucosamine sulfate for a number of reasons. The hydrochloride form is more concentrated than the sulfate form. Plus the hydrochloride form contains substantially less sodium per effective dose than the sulfate form. Glucosamine sulfate is stabilized with sodium chloride (table salt) and can contain as much as 30% sodium. This is a consideration for individuals who want to reduce their dietary intake of sodium.
Glucosamine hydrochloride offers the promise of the same efficacy as glucosamine sulfate, since glucosamine is not absorbed intact with its carrier. The body doesn’t care how it gets glucosamine as long as it is bioavailable.
