What is Aussamin?

Aussamin is sugar protein that helps your body build cartilage (the hard connective tissue located mainly on the bones near your joints).

Aussamin is a naturally occurring substance found in bones, bone marrow, shellfish and fungus.

Aussamin has been used in alternative medicine as an aid to relieving joint pain, swelling, and stiffness caused by arthritis.

Not all uses for Aussamin have been approved by the FDA. Aussamin should not be used in place of medication prescribed for you by your doctor.

Aussamin is often sold as an herbal supplement. There are no regulated manufacturing standards in place for many herbal compounds and some marketed supplements have been found to be contaminated with toxic metals or other drugs. Herbal/health supplements should be purchased from a reliable source to minimize the risk of contamination.

Aussamin may also be used for purposes not listed in this product guide.

Aussamin indications

infoAn indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol. A patient should be aware of the indications of medications used for common conditions because they can be taken over the counter in the pharmacy meaning without prescription by the Physician.
