Glucosamine if one of a number of substances classified as an amino sugar. Unlike other forms of sugar in the body, amino sugars are components of carbohydrates that are incorporated into the structure of body tissues, rather than being used as a source of energy.

Glucosamine sulfate is a naturally occurring chemical found in the human body. It is found in the fluid that is around joints. It is used by the body to produce a variety of other chemicals that are involved in building tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the thick fluid that surrounds joints.

The fluid and cartilage surround the joints act as a cushion for them. In some people with osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin. This results in more joint friction, pain, and stiffness. Researchers think that taking glucosamine supplements may either increase the cartilage and fluid surrounding joints or help prevent breakdown of these substances, or maybe both.

Since sulphate is needed by the body to produce cartilage, some researchers think the "sulfate" part of glucosamine sulfate is also important. This is one reason why researchers believe that glucosamine sulphate might work better than other forms of glucosamine such as glucosamine hydrochloride or N-acetyl glucosamine. These other forms do not contain sulfate.
