Ultimate Glucosamine® contains 100% pure N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.

Acetylglucosamine is a natural-source substance found in healthy cartilage that aids in joint lubrication.

Ultimate Glucosamine® is a powder consisting of 100% acetylglucosamine. This is the form of glucosamine actually found in the human body. It is an important nutritional component of human breast milk and is the second most abundant sugar after lactose.

Ultimate Glucosamine® is the purest form of glucosamine on the market. It is the purest because its formulation contains no additives such as salts, preservatives, coloring agents, glutens, lactose or yeast. It dissolves readily in both hot and cold liquids. When dissolved in water it forms a clear, colorless solution that has a pleasant, sweet taste. Because of these properties, Ultimate Glucosamine® is easy to add to your favorite hot or cold beverage or morning cereal.

This new powder format gives you flexibility in how you consume Ultimate Glucosamine®. Just add 1 level teaspoon of Ultimate Glucosamine® to any hot or cold drink including tea, coffee, juice, milk or soda. Here are some of the ways people take their Ultimate Glucosamine®:
  • For a pleasant, relaxing bedtime drink, add 1 teaspoon to a cup of camomile tea.
  • Add 1 teaspoon to your daily cup of early morning coffee.
  • Sprinkle 1 teaspoon over your hot or cold morning cereal.
  • After playing sports or other physical activity, add 1 teaspoon to your favorite thirst-quenching hot or cold beverage.
The once-a-day, pleasant-tasting formula can easily be adapted to your daily routine - wherever, whenever.

Most people take 1 level teaspoon (5 mL), or about 2 grams of acetylglucosamine, at a time. Others prefer to use more, especially when they first start to take Ultimate Glucosamine®. Since the substance has no known toxicity, 2 to 3 teaspoons per day can be taken without any side effects.

There is a dizzying array of glucosamine products on the market. Most are irrational combinations without any solid clinical or scientific basis to justify their use. In this section, we will talk only about the single-ingredient products containing N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and glucosamine sulfate.

In a survey of glucosamine products marketed in Canada, researchers found that only one contained the labeled amount of glucosamine. This is because the most frequently available products contain glucosamine sulfate and accompanying salts. Most marketed products were not corrected for these salts, and thus had less than the expected amount of pure glucosamine. Ultimate Glucosamine® has no accompanying salts and thus contains 100% pure N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.

As a result, Ultimate Glucosamine®:
  1. Is pleasant tasting
  2. Is easy and convenient to take - mix it with your favorite beverage as a sweetener
  3. Is taken only once a day, so you don't miss doses
  4. Means there are no pills or capsules to swallow
  5. Works more effectively in the body
  6. Is diabetic friendly and does not interfere with sugar metabolism
  7. Is salt free
