INCI Name: Glucosamine HCL
CAS Numbers: 66-84-2
Glucosamine is usually made from seashells, or it can be made in the laboratory. Hydrochloride is a salt form of glucosamine. Glucosamine in the body is used to make a “cushion” that surrounds the joints. In osteoarthritis, this cushion becomes thinner and stiff. Taking glucosamine hydrochloride as a supplement supports joint health by helping to supply the materials needed to rebuild the cushion.
Glucosamine hydrochloride is used for osteoarthritis, knee pain, back pain, and glaucoma, and joint health in humans and pets.
