Quick Note about our "tablet" Glucosamine
You often hear about tablet supplements not being digested in our bodies because tablets are pressed so hard that they become cement-like. At least this is what some companies claim ,and they make a big deal about it to sell their liquid or other non-tablet form supplements. They often charge you more for their non-tablet supplements promising for better digestion. We put one tablet of our Vegetarian Glucosamine in a glass of plain tap water. In about 5 minutes it was already dissolved. Now think about your stomach that produces one of the strongest acids in the world and imagine how quickly our vegan glucosamine tablet will dissolve in your stomach to start doing its job.

Why do we sell Glucosamine HCl , read below:
Glucosamine HCL vs Glucosamine Sulphate:
Stability: Glucosamine and glucosamine sulphate degrade easily, especially if damp. To try to overcome this manufacturers add either sodium or potassium chloride, in addition to the sulphate. This means that over two fifths (40%) of its weight may be made up of additives. To prevent further destruction, vitamin C can be added as a preservative and calcium carbonate as a desiccant. Some glucosamine sulphate preparations claim to be salt free when in fact they are actually SODIUM free. They still contain up to 25% potassium chloride. If they did not, they would degrade rapidly into a black mush. On the other hand glucosamine hydrochloride is naturally stable and requires no added salt or other preservatives.
Purity: Pure glucosamine sulphate can have as little as 59% 'active' glucosamine because of the chemically added sulphate and salt, whilst pure Glucosamine hydrochloride has up to 88%. DEVA Vegan Glucosamine hydrochloride mg for mg, can contain up to a third more active glucosamine.
Where does glucosamine come from? Glucosamine sulphate is manufactured from glucosamine hydrochloride. Glucosamine hydrochloride can be obtained from any source of cartilage, commonly beef, chicken, pig, shark, clams, shrimp or even whale. Chondroitin can also obtained from these sources, and there are no plant altematives. DEVA Nutrition has specifically chosen an alternative source : corn, thus making its glucosamine 100% animal-free suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
Why choose DEVA's Glucosamine hydrochloride? Glucosamine is readily absorbed by the body and into cartilage. Glucosamine sulphate is converted by stomach acid into the hydrochloride before absorption. Scientific research has shown that glucosamine hydrochloride is used by cartilage . A true mg to mg comparison shows that the hydrochloride provides more glucosamine than the sulphate salt and this may be the reason why some people prefer to choose glucosamine hydrochloride.
