Vegetarian and vegan


Glucosamine is a molecule that occurs naturally within your body, but it’s also a popular dietary supplement. Often used to treat symptoms of bone and joint disorders, it’s also used to target several other inflammatory diseases.

What Is Glucosamine?

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound that is chemically classified as an amino sugar. It serves as a building block for a variety of functional molecules in your body but is mostly recognized for developing and maintaining cartilage within your joints.

Glucosamine is also found in some animals, including shellfish shells, animal bones and fungi. Supplemental forms of glucosamine are often made from these natural sources.

Glucosamine is frequently used to both treat and prevent joint disorders, such as osteoarthritis. It may be taken orally or applied topically in a cream or salve.

One study demonstrated a significant anti-inflammatory impact when glucosamine was applied to cells involved in bone formation. Much of the research on glucosamine involves simultaneously supplementing with chondroitin — a compound similar to glucosamine, which is also involved in your body’s production and maintenance of healthy cartilage   .

A study in over 200 people linked glucosamine supplements to a 28% and 24% reduction in two specific biochemical markers of inflammation: CRP and PGE. The same study found a 36% reduction of these inflammatory markers for people taking chondroitin.

Supports Healthy Joints

Glucosamine exists naturally in your body. One of its main roles is to support the healthy development of the tissues between your joints.

Articular cartilage is a type of smooth white tissue that covers the ends of your bones where they meet to form joints.

This kind of tissue allows bones to move freely across one another, minimizing friction and allowing for painless movement at your joints.

One small study in 41 cyclists found that supplementing with up to 3 grams of glucosamine daily reduced collagen degradation in the knees by 27% compared to 8% in the placebo group.

Another small study found a significantly reduced ratio of collagen-breakdown to collagen-synthesis markers in articular joints of soccer players treated with 3 grams of glucosamine daily over a three-month period.

These results suggest a joint-protective effect of glucosamine.

Glucosamine has been specifically studied for its potential to treat symptoms and disease progression associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.

Multiple studies indicate that supplementing daily with glucosamine sulphate may offer effective, long-term treatment for osteoarthritis by providing a significant reduction in pain, maintenance of joint space and overall slowing of disease progression. Some studies have revealed significantly reduced markers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in mice treated with various forms of glucosamine.

Some early research in mice with osteoporosis also shows potential for supplemental use of glucosamine to improve bone strength.

Interstitial Cystitis

Glucosamine is widely promoted as a treatment for interstitial cystitis (IC), a condition associated with a deficiency in the compound glycosaminoglycan.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Like interstitial cystitis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is associated with a deficiency in glycosaminoglycan.

Very little research supports the notion that glucosamine can treat IBD. However, a study in mice with IBD indicated that supplementing with glucosamine may reduce inflammation.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Some sources claim that glucosamine may be an effective treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS). However, supporting research is lacking.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is widely believed to be treatable with glucosamine.

If you’re considering using glucosamine, keep in mind the quality of the supplement you choose — as this could make a difference in how it affects you.

About Higher Nature

Higher Nature is a company that was founded on a set of principles and a vision to provide high quality, well-researched nutritional products. This British, independently owned business was the brainchild of pioneering nutrition experts, Brian and Celia Wright, who wanted to make a significant contribution to the health of those using their supplements, through active ingredients at levels dictated by scientific evidence on safety and effectiveness. They would not market a product, even a bestseller, if they were not convinced that it was beneficial to health.

In today’s age of ever-increasing competition and following the sad loss of co-founder Celia Wright in February 2009, it would be very easy to abandon those values, but not Higher Nature. The company continues with the same inspiration, principles and dedication to health.

David Coulson joined the company as both new CEO and investor in December 2010, marking the start of the next stage in the journey.

The Higher Nature Mission

Higher Nature is committed to providing our customers with the best, natural and most effective supplements for optimum health and to supplying these to the highest standards of service possible. The Company aims to make a significant contribution to the health and wellbeing of those who use our supplements, to support retail health stores and health professionals, and to run a healthy and happy, equal opportunity business with satisfied employees and shareholders. We also aim to educate and affect attitudes about nutrition and health more widely.

Higher Nature Innovation

There is no doubt that companies and practitioners in the health food sector have faced difficult trading conditions in recent years, and Higher Nature is no exception. However, the company has by no means stood still during this time and has continued to innovate and invest.

Product development has taken place, with several new launches in the last few years. We have also developed our online capabilities and in 2010 launched www.nutripeople.com, a fantastic source of free nutrition advice which acts as an education academy for consumers, trade and practitioners. It works as an independent health guide, allowing people to search for information about health conditions and nutrients, and to seek professional advice where necessary. Higher Nature has a team of fully-qualified nutritionists and other experts in the field, who pull the information together using their specialist knowledge. In 2013 we launched The Higher Nature Academy an online educational tool to help anyone with an interest in nutrition. In 2014 we launched our new responsive websites to make it easier to view and order our products regardless of the device being used.

An Ambitious Future for Higher Nature

We remain privately owned, we are investing in the business, and have plans in place to develop our premium brand within supplements and foods and to increase retail distribution to reach a wider consumer audience - in short there are plenty of great opportunities ahead and we are ambitious and optimistic about the future.

At the centre of this is our loyal, knowledgeable customer base, which is why our focus on customer service will remain as high as our focus on providing unique, ethical and effective supplements under the Higher Nature brand.
