Description
The WELLESSE® Promise
Wellesse believes supplementing our active bodies is vital to health. That’s why, for over 20 years, we’ve been dedicated to producing a premium line of supplements that work to bring a natural balance to every part of your body.

Wellesse Joint Movement Glucosamine combines essential, natural ingredients in a great-tasting berry flavored liquid formula that is easily absorbed by your body. Clinical studies show that Glucosamine and Chondroitin in combination are beneficial in maintaining healthy joint function, cartilage and flexibility.

Glucosamine is necessary to protect and rebuild cartilage tissue and keep joints strong & healthy

Chondroitin naturally occurs in the connective tissue to cushion and lubricate cartilage for ease of joint movement.

MSM is an organic form of sulfur vital in nourishing and maintaining healthy connective tissue in the joints for flexibility & elasticity.

Research has shown that nutrients from liquid sources can be more easily absorbed than from solids.

Health Notes

Glucosamine

Glucosamine
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Osteoarthritis
Dose: 1,500 mg daily Glucosamine sulfate (GS), a nutrient derived from seashells, is a building block needed for the synthesis and repair of joint cartilage. GS supplementation has significantly reduced symptoms of osteoarthritis in uncontrolled1, 2 and single-blind trials.3, 4 Many double-blind trials have also reported efficacy.5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 One published trial has reported no effect of GS on osteoarthritis symptoms,11 and GS has been found to be ineffective for low back pain related to lumbar spine osteoarthritis.12 While most research trials use 500 mg GS taken three times per day, results of a three-year, double-blind trial indicate that 1,500 mg taken once per day produces significant reduction of symptoms and halts degenerative changes seen by x-ray examination.13 GS does not cure people with osteoarthritis, and they may need to take the supplement for the rest of their lives in order to maintain benefits. Fortunately, GS appears to be virtually free of side effects, even after three or more years of supplementation. Benefits from GS generally become evident after three to eight weeks of treatment.

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructionsIn a preliminary trial, supplementation with glucosamine hydrochloride (1,500 mg per day) for 12 weeks produced a small but statistically significant improvement of pain in people with rheumatoid arthritis. However, other measures of disease activity, such as the number of swollen and painful joints did not improve.1

Osteoarthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructionsA few trials have evaluated glucosamine hydrochloride (GH), another form of glucosamine sulfate (GS), as a single remedy for osteoarthritis. One trial found only minor benefits from 1,500 mg per day of GH for 8 weeks in people with osteoarthritis of the knee.1 However, these people were also taking up to 4,000 mg per day of acetaminophen for pain relief, and that treatment might have masked a beneficial effect of GH. In another study, supplementing with GH (2,000 mg each morning for 12 weeks) significantly improved symptoms, compared with a placebo, in people with knee pain due to cartilage damage or osteoarthritis.2 In a four-week study from China, GH was as effective as GS in people with osteoarthritis of the knee.3 Another study found that the combination of GH and chondroitin sulfate was more effective than a placebo in people with moderate to severe knee pain from osteoarthritis, but not in those with mild pain.4 Despite the reported beneficial effects of GH, some investigators believe that the sulfate component of GS itself helps relieve osteoarthritis, and that GS would therefore be more effective than GH.5

Minor Injuries
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Knee Pain
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Sprains and Strains
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate may both play a role in wound healing by providing the raw material needed by the body to manufacture molecules called glycosaminoglycans found in skin, tendons, ligaments, and joints.1 Test tube and animal studies have found that these substances, and others like them, can promote improved tissue healing.2, 3, 4, 5 Injectable forms of chondroitin sulfate have been used in Europe for various types of sports-related injuries to tendons and joints,6, 7, 8, 9 and one preliminary trial reported reduced pain and good healing in young athletes with chondromalacia patella (cartilage softening in the knee) who were given 750-1,500 mg per day of oral glucosamine sulfate.10 However, specific human trials of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate for healing sprains and strains are lacking.

      This product would be great if it didn't contain sucralose! I will look for another product without it. I recommend you do the same! If your suffering from joint pain or if you are trying to prevent joint pain this is the last thing you want in your body!
