Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to glucosamine hydrochloride (CAS RN 66-84-2), glucosamine sulfate (CAS RN 29031-19-4), glucosamine sulfate potassium chloride (CAS RN 1296149-08-0), Sodium N-sulfoglucosamine (CAS RN 38899-05-7), and acetylglucosamine (CAS RN 7512-17-6). Glucosamine hydrochloride is marketed as a supplement that is indicated for the support of the structure and function of joints, usually in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Since glucosamine is a precursor for the creation of glycosaminoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans are a major component of joint cartilage and forming cartilage tissue in the body, supplemental glucosamine may help to rebuild cartilage and treat arthritis; glucosamine is also present in tendons and ligaments. Glucosamine must be synthesized by the body, but the ability to do this declines with age; therefore, glucosamine and its salts have been advocated in the treatment of rheumatic disorders including osteoarthritis.
