JOINT CARE SUPPLEMENTS
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,
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.
