Q: What is shellfish-free glucosamine and why is it beneficial? A: Cartilage rebuilding is a continuous bodily response to ongoing wear and tear in the joint and cartilage tissues. Glucosamine supplies one of the major building blocks used in this process, thus supporting the body's ability to rebuild cartilage tissues and maintain healthy joint status.* The glucosamine in FYI ULTRA is derived from a plant source which means that people with shell fish allergies and vegetarians are able to take this product.
