Glucosamine is a monosaccharide, which is naturally produced in the body from glucose and glutamine. This substance is a precursor of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, which are essential to the synthesis of connective tissue components and crucial to maintaining and renewing the health of tissues that make up the cartilage and joints.

There are no food sources of glucosamine, so this substance must be obtained exclusively through the use of dietary supplements. Glucosamine supplements are produced from the exoskeleton of shellfish (shrimp, lobsters and crabs).
