How is Eco-Friendly Glucosamine Compelling the US Healthcare Industry?

Hundreds of articles about the harm being continuously done to the environment worldwide are published on a daily basis. As a result, millions of consumers are increasingly placing a greater emphasis on their purchasing decisions on goods that are produced sustainably and with minimal environmental impact as opposed to those that are not. The environmentally friendly option is now readily available for the component Glucosamine.   

It is essential for strong joints to have Glucosamine, a naturally produced chemical. Regular Glucosamine supplementation can increase the synovial fluid in body joints, enhancing their capacity to absorb shocks. This vitamin, which facilitates calcium absorption in the body, must be consumed in sufficient proportions. Along with protecting bone structures, it also has anti-inflammatory qualities. Since pain, weakness, and tingling are the common signs of arthritis that can result from its insufficiency, it is widely employed in the healthcare sector. 

For more than 20 years, Glucosamine has played a significant role in the United States joint care supplements, with current import volumes for both human and animal usage averaging between 7,000 and 10,000 tonnes annually. Historically, the Asian shellfish industry has produced Glucosamine as a byproduct. This contributes to serious primary environmental issues due to damaging aquaculture practices. Several of these problems are listed in a recent article from Scientific World Journal, including the eradication of coastal mangrove swamps, harm from effluent to drinking water, and excessive and unrestrained antibiotic usage. In addition, significant amounts of sodium hydroxide and lye are used to convert the shellfish's leftover material into Glucosamine, which adds to the difficulties associated with disposing of the wastewater.

Through a fermentation procedure that starts with non-GMO corn, GreenGrown Glucosamine is produced. The end result is an environmentally benign supply of USP-grade Glucosamine sulfate and hydrochloride that is molecularly equivalent to the material generated from shellfish but without adverse environmental effects. It is the only source in the industry for high-quality, vegan Glucosamine that is produced through microbial fermentation. It has been shown to be both secure and helpful for people with osteoarthritis. It has been quality-verified by an NSF-accredited laboratory and certified Non-GMO by Eurofins. It is perfect for the increasingly expanding vegetarian and vegan market in the US, people who are allergic to things, and people looking for vitamins without GMOs.

In the US today, 35% of supplement consumers cite a vegetarian source as being crucial when making their decision. Additionally, brand loyalty may be shown in the shopping habits of vegetarian-aware consumers, who typically purchase three times as many supplements as other consumers. Rising consumer demand for environmentally friendly products is likely to boost the GreenGrown Glucosamine industry in the US in the upcoming period.
