More about the ingredients...
Glucosamine HCL: Glucosamine is an amino sugar that is produced naturally in the body. It is also found in seashells, or it can be made in the laboratory.

MSM: MSM stands for methylsulphonylmethane, a naturally-occurring source of sulphur.
Rosehip: Rosehip is the fruit of the rose plant.
Nettle leaf: Stinging nettle is a plant in the genus Urtica that originated as a native shrub in colder regions of Europe and Asia and is now found worldwide. It gets its name from the fine hairs on its leaves and stems that release irritating chemicals when they contact your skin.
Turmeric and curcumin: Curcumin is the yellow pigment associated with turmeric, and to a lesser extent ginger.
Ginger root: Ginger, aka Zingiber officinale, is a rhizome - a thick underground stem that sprouts roots and shoots. This "hot" spice is native to warmer parts of Asia, such as China, Japan, and India, but is now also grown in parts of South American and Africa.

Bromelain: Bromelain is an enzyme derived from pineapple juice.
Horsetail herb: Horsetail is a member of the Equisetaceae family; the sole survivor of a line of plants going back three hundred million years. The name "horsetail", often used for the entire group, arose because the branched species somewhat resemble a horse's tail.
