Vitamin C plays an essential role in numerous areas of human health. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones, cartilage, skin, gums and teeth. Vitamin C also enhances iron absorption and the normal energy-yielding metabolism. Vitamin C aids in the maintenance of the immune system including during and after intense physical exercise. Vitamin C contributes to normal psychological function and the functioning of the nervous system.

Manganese contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue and aids in the maintenance of normal bones. Manganese and vitamin C also have a role in the protection of cells from ‘oxidative stress’. This oxidative stress appears to be a major factor in many human diseases.

Research has raised the possibility that glucosamine could contribute to insulin resistance. This effect might theoretically result from the ability of glucosamine to interfere with an enzyme needed to regulate blood sugar

levels. However, available evidence does not suggest that taking glucosamine supplements will trigger or aggravate insulin resistance or high blood sugar.

Those with peptic ulcers and individuals taking diuretic drugs may be more likely to experience gastrointestinal side effects with glucosamine.

Due to the nature of the herbal constituents this formula is not recommended for use by those taking existing anti-platelet or anti-coagulant medications such as warfarin or aspirin.
