Chondroitin is naturally made in the body and consists of long chains of molecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGS). Chondroitin sulfate is a major part of cartilage and supports cartilage structure and vitality. Chondroitin allows molecules to move through the cartilage, which is important because cartilage has no blood supply.See All Products
Below we've broken down the main functions of our Chondroitin Sulfate and the benefits it can provide.
Studies show that chondroitin sulfate can reduce joint stiffness and pain in those with osteoarthritis.
Research has shown that chondroitin sulfate can improve resistance and elasticity of cartilage.
"Research has shown that chondroitin may be an inhibitor of calcium oxalate crystal formation in urine. "
Chondroitin helps promote flexible joint tissue and mobility by encouraging water retention within the joint for shock absorption. Some evidence shows it may support normal oxalate levels for kidney health.
