What is Fast Release Glucosamine 70 Plus?

An optimum combination of Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl, calcium, vitamins C and D3 plus ginger to provide easy-to-digest, fast-acting support for the over-70s. Research shows that as we get older, it becomes harder to digest and absorb glucosamine, which is why we've devised this fast-release capsule that works quicker than standard tablets. Glucosamine, which is found naturally in our bodies, is a compound needed for cartilage, the flexible tissue that protects our joints. As we age, we produce less of it, leaving our joints more vulnerable to damage from wear and tear.

Why is ours better?

Unlike many other glucosamine supplements, our patented Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl is suitable For vegetarians and anyone with a shellfish allergy as it's made from fermented corn. Vitamin C is added for its involvement in the formation of collagen, which is important for cartilage and bones. Calcium aids digestion and, along with vitamin D3, helps maintain healthy bones and muscles. Ginger has been used in medicines and recipes for thousands of years and our experts consider it a perfect partner to glucosamine.

Who is this for?

Our fast acting glucosamine is for anyone over 70 who enjoys an active lifestyle and wants to keep their bones and joints as active as possible.


Made in the UK.


Complementary product

Turmeric is one of five supplements our experts believe provide the foundation of good health. Opti-Turmeric is an optimal absorption, fast-acting capsule with liquid curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, and vitamin C to assist collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage and bones.
