For Healthy Joint Function*
Glucosamine sulfate is an aminopolysaccharide, which is a combination of an amino acid and a sugar. Glucosamine is produced by the body and provides the raw material for substances that provide the foundation for many of the body's tissues including cartilage, ligaments, tendons, collagen to mention a few. Glucosamine also supports the health of tissues that make up many of the body's organs.*
Chondroitin Sulfate is necessary in the production of cartilage. Proteoglycans, a vital component of cartilage tissue, is produced by Chondroitin. Chondroitin attracts water to the proteoglycans and holds it there, which is important to maintaining healthy joints. Chondroitin is derived from powdered shark cartilage or cow-trachea cartilage.
When used in conjunction with glucosamine it is much more effective. It is best to consult with your physician before taking this supplement to discuss potential allergies or reactions.
Chondroitin Sulfate Safety & Interaction Information: There are no toxic effects with Chondroitin; however, if you are taking anticoagulants (blood thinners) or aspirin daily, use caution. Safety in young in children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
