OptiTab Technology

Cracking the Code to the Ideal Glucosamine Granule

If you have ever tried to make tablets that include glucosamine, then you know how difficult this ingredient is to work with. Glucosamine granules can cause many tablet problems and tablet defects, from broken tablets to appearance issues.

Despite this, glucosamine supplement benefits cannot be ignored as they have a notable impact on joint health, pain relief, and so many other health factors.

The Glucosamine Experts at TSI have cracked the code for the ideal glucosamine granule! We call this process OptiTab Technology.

We’ve distributed samples of improved tablet production using OptiTab glucosamine granules.

Challenge us to do the same for your formula and see for yourself how we can resolve your common tablet problems!

How do you know OptiTab glucosamine Granules are better?

We’ve tested OptiTab glucosamine granules against common binders used in tableting. OptiTab performs comparably to all of them.

In fact, we’ve tested OptiTab granules against five major producers of tablet-grade glucosamine…

…we outperformed them all. It wasn’t even close. Don’t take our word for it! To review the full study, please download our free whitepaper.
