Olimp Labs Gold Glucosamine 1000 is a preparation in capsules containing glucosamine sulphate and vitamin C – substances necessary for proper construction of the joint cartilage. Research has shown that glucosamine is a substrate in the human body necessary for the biosynthesis of proteoglycans that form and maintain connective tissue, including cartilage.
The supplement contains:
Glucosamine – a glucose derivative which is the precursor to proteoglycans, sialic acid or chondroitin. These compounds are important components of the extracellular substance and play a significant role in the proper functioning of connective tissue, including bone and cartilage tissue.
Vitamin C – a water-soluble vitamin, essential for the functioning of the body. It acts as a coenzyme for enzymes involved in the synthesis of collagen (proline and lysine hydroxylase), which is the most commonly occurring protein in the human body. The correct structure and the right amount of collagen is essential for healthy bones, skin, joints or teeth. Due to this, deficiency of this vitamin, and consequently, insufficient amount of collagen, is the cause of defects in collagen structures, such as blood vessels or joints. Teeth loss and impaired wound healing are also characteristic in that case.
Healthy and flexible joints
Glucosamine contained in this supplement is a substrate for extracellular components synthesis, and therefore it indirectly affects the condition of connective tissue in our body, which contains the most of this substance. It forms, for example, membranes surrounding our internal organs, but also cartilage or bone tissue.
One of the components of articular cartilage is chondroitin synthesized from glucosamine. Its supplementation may therefore support the proper functioning of joints, and more specifically the articular surfaces covered with vitreous cartilage. Chondroitin is responsible, e.g. for increasing the pressure resistance and reducing friction in the joints and proper slide, helping to reduce pain. Medical preparations supporting the treatment of, e.g. osteoarthritis, contain chondroitin, often also in combination with glucosamine
Resistant bones and additional benefits from supplementation
The aforementioned components of the extracellular substance are also present in bones, so their increased amount may favourably affect bone durability. Apart from bones, structures rich in connective tissue include the skin, tendons and ligaments.
Collagen - fibrillar structural protein is also present in these structures in large amounts. It forms a kind of scaffolding for many tissues and organs, including the skin. The presence of collagen determines, for example, its proper firmness and strength, delays the appearance of wrinkles, strengthens the walls of blood vessels (which prevents bruising), can also strengthen the teeth and all elements of the osteoarticular system (ligaments, tendons, joints).
The formation of collagen in our cells is a complex process. At one of its stages two enzymes from the group of hydroxylases are involved, which cannot act without vitamin C. The vitamin contained in this supplement, apart from obvious health benefits, also ensures constant collagen production, which contributes to maintaining healthy and durable bones and other organs mentioned above.
To sum up, Olimp Labs Gold Glucosamine 1000 preparation provides a solid dose of glucosamine and vitamin C. Glucosamine is a precursor to important components forming our bones and cartilage. It supports proper functioning of the joints, strengthening joint cartilage, as well as bones, ligaments and tendons. Its action is perfectly complemented by vitamin C, necessary for the synthesis of collagen, which is the most important structural support for the aforementioned structures, enhancing their endurance.
The preparation may constitute a perfect element of dietary supplementation among sportsmen and elderly people, who are in the group of increased risk of fractures and injuries. Glucosamine demonstrates its effect only after 3-6 months of systematic use. In order to increase the preparation’s effectiveness and its positive influence on joint inflammations, it may be combined with e.g. chondroitin or Boswelia serrata extract. Remember to take the preparation around meals, preferably after a meal.

Glucosamine sulphate (glucosamine) is an amino sugar present in cartilage matrix; compound needed for the glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, affecting its structure and flexibility, increasing immunity to overloads. Glucosamine is synthesized in the human body, it can be supplied from the outside (a component of shells of marine crustaceans, and in coatings for fungi) as supplements. Increased demand for glucosamine occurs in sports training (athletes exposed to overload the musculoskeletal system), during convalescence after injuries and contusions, moreover, in the case of older people in prevention and therapeutic of degenerative changes of the locomotor system. Glucosamine occurs as mono-preparation or multiple preparations (including, among others, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin, collagen hydrolyzate and ascorbic acid) in supplementation in supporting the functioning of the musculoskeletal system, such as d-glucosamine sulphate 2KCl; HCL Poly NAG.
Dosage: 500-1500 mg per day.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.
It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.
Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.
