Your Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM products lists sulphate as an ingredient. If I am allergic to sulphur is it safe to take something with sulphate?
Sulphur is an essential element of the earth and is the eighth most prevalent element in the human body. No one is allergic to sulphur itself. One of the more common drug allergies is that to sulpha drugs or sulphonamides, which are contained in some antibiotic and other drugs. A rarer allergy might occur to sulphites, which is sometimes used as an approved preservatives that are added to food and pharmaceuticals. It is important to for you to know which one or both of these, you are allergic. The Glucosamine sulphate in our product is not known to cause allergic reactions. Glucosamine sulphate is an existing component in the human body, mainly in the connective tissues. There is no evidence or reason to believe that those who are sensitive to sulphites and/ or sulpha drugs are at any elevated risk of sensitivity to glucosamine sulphate, so this commonly used supplement can be enjoyed without worry.

Is CoQ10 a vitamin?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant, which is sometimes called a special group of vitamins and minerals, that strengthen your body’s natural defenses against cell damage.

The body’s natural defense system against these by-products relies on the use of antioxidants to help neutralize and remove the harmful by-products that can cause cell damage.
