JOINT CARE SUPPLEMENTS

Chondroitin

Chondroitin is a natural component of the cartilage that cushions joints and preliminary studies have shown it may increase joint mobility and slow cartilage loss. As a remedy, Chondroitin Sulfate blocks enzymes which destroy crucial cartilage tissue and is also believed to promote water retention and elasticity in joint cartilage, hence it has become a popular dietary supplement for the treatment of osteoarthritis.

It may be manufactured synthetically or extracted from cow tracheas or shark cartilage, and does vary in quality. It is often sold in combination with glucosamine, another compound key to cartilage formation and repair.
Its main benefits are with knee and hip osteoarthritis, but could also be as effective with other joints.

Whilst used in the treatment of osteo-arthritis, Chondroitin is not a primary treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a less common but more disabling form of arthritis that results from serious immune dysfunction and inflammation rather than the cartilage "wear and tear" of osteoarthritis. With RA, chondroitin may help to restore some stability to the joint, but studies indicate it does not repair cartilage damage.


NOTE: Chondroitin is often sold in combination formulas for arthritis, including glucosamine sulphate, MSM, certain vitamins, anti-inflammatory enzyme bromelain, boswellia (a tree extract), sea cucumber, zinc, manganese, and horsetail.

Recommended Dosage varies with specific ailments.


Expected Results Using Condroitin

Chondroitin needs time to rebuild cartilage, so results may not be noticed in less than one to two months. If you do not experience relief within a few months, chondroitin is probably not going to work for you and you should stop taking it.

Once chondroitin begins to work, its effects last longer in the body than NSAIDs and other drugs.

NOTE: Avoid chondroitin if you're pregnant and take under supervision if on blood thinners.
