Glucosamine & Chondroitin are naturally occurring structural components that have recently enjoyed growing popularity. Glucosamine is an amino sugar derived from the chitin of shellfish and is used by the body to support healthy joint structures. Chondroitin complements Glucosamine and works synergistically to provide optimal nutritional support.*
What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine is a monosaccharide derived from glucose and glutamine (an amino acid). It is used to produce substances in the body that attract and bind water into tissues, making them more resilient. It is especially important to maintain properly functioning joint structures.
How is Glucosamine manufactured?
Animal-derived glucosamine is produced by removing the proteins and minerals from the shells of shrimp and crab. The official AOAC Method is used for analysis testing of glucosamine to insure high product quality.
What is Chondroitin?
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) is a major component of our cartilage that helps cushion our joints. It is believed to provide structure, hold water and nutrients, and promote elasticity in cartilage. It also appears to inhibit the enzymes that can destroy cartilage tissue. These properties have made Chondroitin Sulfate a popular dietary supplement for people seeking to nourish their joint tissues. Chondroitin is marketed alone or in combination with other joint supplements, usually with Glucosamine (another compound believed key to cartilage formation and repair).
What is the source of Chondroitin?
Chondroitin is derived from bovine tissue from cattle. Bovine sources are used because the clinical studies on effectiveness of chondroitin are based on bovine material. As with all of our raw materials, Chondroitin is being very carefully analyzed and laboratory tested for the presence of any undesirable microbes. State-of-the-art analytical lab testing is currently used and verified by independent labs around the world to test all products containing chondroitin sulfate.
