Did you know that…

glucosamine-chondroitinChon­droitin and Glu­cosamine work together to build strength and relieve swelling in your joints? They are fre­quently taken to keep joints healthy and to ease joint pain that may occur from osteoarthri­tis or trauma. Chon­droitin is derived from either shark car­ti­lage or the car­ti­lage in the wind­pipe of cat­tle or pigs. Glu­cosamine is made from ground shrimp and crab shells. Because these sup­ple­ments orig­i­nate from nat­ural ani­mal sources, they have been shown to have pos­i­tive effects in your body. They are vir­tu­ally free of side effects.

Chon­droitin occurs nat­u­rally in the human body car­ti­lage. It is part of a pro­tein mol­e­cule that is believed to pro­vide elas­tic­ity to the car­ti­lage between bones and joints. It draws fluid into the tis­sue to give our car­ti­lage more elas­tic­ity and to slow car­ti­lage break­down by pro­tect­ing it from destruc­tive enzymes. It is often taken along with Glu­cosamine to assist with main­tain­ing joint health. Glu­cosamine is found nat­u­rally in the body and is an amino sugar that is believed to help form and repair the car­ti­lage between bones and joints. The com­bined use is known to pro­duce a “syn­er­gis­tic” effect. It’s been pre­scribed for pain relief in osteoarthri­tis in some parts of Europe where it is a pre­scrip­tion drug for decades. If glu­cosamine is your #1 joint friend, chon­droitin is #2.glucosamine-chondroitin-msm

This com­bi­na­tion helps reduce arthri­tis symp­toms by help­ing to rebuild car­ti­lage. More specif­i­cally, it is thought to help relieve some of the symp­toms asso­ci­ated with osteoarthri­tis, a degen­er­a­tive joint dis­ease. They are thought to reduce arthri­tis symp­toms by reduc­ing inflam­ma­tion and improv­ing car­ti­lage elas­tic­ity and water reten­tion. Chon­droitin may also decrease the effect of enzy­matic car­ti­lage break down. Sup­ple­men­ta­tion with Glu­cosamine and Chon­droitin sul­fates can pro­vide sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fit for mus­cu­loskele­tal support.

So if you are active into sports or love to run, Glu­cosamine Chon­droitin will help keep you in action.
