|What Is It?
Glucosamine HCl and chondroitin sulfate are combined
with sulfur-containing methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) to
provide an enhanced spectrum of nutrients for optimal
cartilage matrix composition, connective tissue strength,
and joint comfort.*
Uses For Glucosamine Chondroitin with
Cartilage Composition: Glucosamine promotes the
synthesis of the glycosaminoglycan chondroitin sulfate.
Chondroitin sulfate is responsible for building the ground
substance of cartilage, molecules known as proteoglycans.
Studies have indicated that glucosamine HCl has the
ability to support healthy cartilage integrity, in part by
maintaining healthy matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)
enzyme activity. In addition, an important role of sulfur
from MSM is to enhance the structure and integrity of
Joint Motility and Function: Several studies indicate that
the combination of glucosamine HCl and chondroitin
sulfate has positive effects on joint mobility and comfort.
Additionally, a recent randomized, double blind, placebocontrolled
trial revealed that MSM also promotes joint
comfort and function.*
What Is The Source?
Glucosamine HCl is derived from crab and shrimp.
Chondroitin sulfate is derived from bovine cartilage. MSM
