Glucosamine Chondroitin is a powerful joint support complex containing 500mg Glucosamine Sulphate 400mg Marine Chondroitin and 60mg Vitamin C. This scientifically blended formula provides the most widely recognised joint health support ingredients in an easy to swallow tablet. Vitamin C has also been added to allow a more efficiently absorbed and better targeted supplement.
Glucosamine is required in the body to produce specialised molecules called ‘glycosaminoglycans’ (GAGs), which play an important role in the development of cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, nails, hair and skin. It is used to provide joint support and protect against long-term degeneration of the joints by encouraging the growth of cartilage (the gel-like material that cushions joints).
Chondroitin Sulphate is a compound naturally found in joints, although in degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis its presence reduces as cartilage erodes. It is believed to block the enzymes that can destroy cartilage tissue as well as support water-retention in the cartilage found in joints, thereby making it more elastic. Studies have shown that supplementing your diet with Chondroitin Sulphate may promote joint-healing and possibly slow the development of osteoarthritis.
Vitamin C The health benefits of Vitamin C are multiple and although it is most commonly thought of as an immune system booster and powerful antioxidant, it is also crucial for the formation of collagen (the structural protein that holds joints together) and thus plays a key role in keeping ligaments and tendons strong and healthy. With Vitamin C being a water soluble nutrient the Chondroitin absorbs it, therefore placing it within the joints where it is needed most.
