The name Glucosa Med-Mortar was chosen by XT Medical experts to make an important point. Here is an important analogy: If all you have are bricks and no mortar any wall you try to build will crumble. Your body is making walls of connective tissues, such as cartilage, ligaments, tendons, skin, and bone. Your body needs the right ingredients to build these walls or “crumbling walls” result. Think of glucosamine as the bricks and the other ingredients in Glucosa Med-Mortar as the mortar.

Each ingredient has been carefully selected. For example, you’ll notice the form of glucosamine in Glucosa Med-Mortar is Glucosamine sulfate and NOT Glucosamine phosphate. They sound similar but they are not. You will also notice chondroitin sulfate is not an ingredient. Why? Because ingredients like chondroitin sulfate are inferior. Bottom line, Glucosamine sulfate is more efficiently used for connective tissue metabolism than many other glucosamine sources. When it comes to building strong walls in your body you need the best components in your system. Strong walls lead to lead to resiliency, load distribution, shock-absorbing, compressive and lubricating properties to joints and connective tissues. The availability of glucosamine is necessary during the constant remodeling that aging cartilage undergoes. Thus, the maintenance of healthy aging cartilage may be improved with enhanced deposit of body substances. Dietary glucosamine serves as an instant forerunner for these substances. Glucosamine also stimulates incorporation of other precursors into the connective tissue matrix. Bioavailability of oral glucosamine sulfate is excellent. It is absorbed intact, and utilized very quickly by all tissues, including connective tissues.

MSM®, a derivative of DMSO, is a naturally occurring compound of biologically available sulfur, an indispensable element in human nutrition. As part of the amino acids methionine and cysteine, sulfur is required for the structural integrity and function of almost every protein in the body, as well as parts of cartilage and other connective tissue. Dietary MSM® serves as a versatile donor of metabolically active sulfur for the synthesis of numerous compounds and proteins in the body. As such, MSM® helps maintain normal immune response, lung function, connective tissue metabolism, and muscle contraction. MSM® occurs naturally in a variety of foods, such as fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, milk, and fish. However, MSM® is volatile and easily lost during cooking. MSM® is very well absorbed by the intestinal tract and rapidly distributed within the body.

Bromelain, from the pineapple plant, reduces the production of inflammation. Its ability to modulate the body’s normal inflammatory processes may reduce the discomfort associated with aging joints.

Proanthocyanidins, such as those found in grapes, are widespread in nature and highly regarded for their strong antioxidant properties, as well as their functions in supporting the body’s connective tissues. They have been shown to bind with collagen fibers, thereby protecting from premature degradation. This helps maintain the natural elasticity of collagen in skin, joints, arteries, capillaries, and other connective tissues.

Although vitamin C has numerous biological functions, foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of collagen and substances which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as joint cartilage, tendons, blood vessels, skin, and bone.

Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the cross linking of collagen fibers – Consequently, vitamin C is essential for the normal structure and function of connective tissue.


Glucosa Med-Mortar capsules may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to support the structure and function of the body’s connective tissues, such as cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and skin.


Adults take 1 capsule daily or as directed by physician.
