Blackmores Glucosamine + Fish Oil combines a clinically proven dose of
glucosamine with high quality fish oil to provide effective and convenient
arthritis pain relief. This formula may help to reduce joint inflammation
and swelling, and relieve the pain caused by osteoarthritis. Glucosamine
reduces cartilage wear, increases mobility and decreases joint stiffness. It
can help to slow the progression of joint damage in osteoarthritis.
Features and benefits

- Results expected after 2-4 weeks.
- No artificial surfactants to disguise fishy odours.
- Slows the progression of osteoarthritis.
- Helps to increase joint mobility and reduce joint stiffness.
- Helps to reduce joint inflammation and swelling.

How it works
Glucosamine and sulfate are natural components found in the cartilage
matrix and synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a major building block of the
substances that together with protein form the structural units in
cartilage. These structural units, called aggrecans, are important for the
elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Ageing
decreases the body?? ability to restore and manufacture normal cartilage.
Supplementary glucosamine can be an important source of this vital component
of cartilage as we age.
Osteoarthritis is characterized by joint degeneration and loss of
cartilage. As we get older the ??ear and tear??effects of use cause
degenerative changes in the cartilage. The cartilage becomes more
susceptible to breakdown and damage, which may result in the typical
symptoms of osteoarthritis. These symptoms include decreased mobility,
increased joint stiffness, inflammation and pain.
Glucosamine may help to provide relief from these symptoms, as well as
helping to reduce cartilage wear and provide temporary relief of the pain
associated with this condition.
Researchers found in a clinical trial that patients with osteoarthritis
of the knees had a clinically significant improvement in pain and mobility
after a period of four weeks using glucosamine sulphate 500 mg three times
Fish oils are a source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are
important for the production of substances known as prostaglandins and
leukotrienes. Prostaglandins and leukotrienes are important in immune
function, smooth muscle function, platelet aggregation and inflammation.
Fish oils have an anti-inflammatory action because prostaglandins and
leukotrienes from omega-3 fatty acids have less inflammatory activity than
prostaglandins and leukotrienes derived from other types of fatty acids.
Fish oil helps to maintain and support a healthy heart and cardiovascular
system. It can assist in the maintenance of normal eye and brain function,
as well as decreasing fat (triglycerides) in the blood in healthy people.
Fish oil inhibits triglyceride synthesis in the liver and so helps to lower
fats (triglycerides) in blood, therefore supporting a healthy cardiovascular
