Chondroitin

What Is Chondroitin?

Chondroitin sulfate is a complex carbohydrate which also occurs naturally in the body. Chondroitin molecules join with proteins to become proteoglycans. These proteoglycans comprise the ground substance in the extracellular matrix of connective tissue (cartilage, tendons, ligaments, etc.)

Chondroiton stimulates collagen production that helps cartilage to retain water and cushion the joints.

How can Chondroitin help me?

  • Chondroitin sulfate may help reduce joint pain and inflammation.
  • Chondroitin helps to keep cartilage healthy by absorbing fluid (particularly water) into the connective tissue.
  • Chondroitin may also block enzymes that break down cartilage.
  • Chondroitin provides the building blocks for the body to produce new cartilage.

Are there any precautions needed when taking Chondroitin?
