What is Glucosamine & Chondroitin Sulphate?

Both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are found naturally in the body of all mammals, with glucosamine sulfate found naturally in joint cartilage and chondroitin sulfate found naturally in connective tissue. These two components are important building blocks for healthy joint cartilage.

How does glucosamine & chondroitin sulfate work?

Together, they support the rebuilding of the body's own cartilage, while inhibiting the enzyme that breaks down the cartilage. They also ensure that the joint's flexibility is maintained and thus give the joints the best conditions to function normally. A whole and healthy articular cartilage is crucial for the normal function of the joint. This is because the cartilage protects the skeleton in the joint by acting as a shock absorber, as well as distributing the pressure that occurs during loading.

In a young and healthy joint, a slow and natural turnover of articular cartilage takes place. The articular cartilage breaks down in connection with activity and training, and the body forms new cartilage on its own so that the joint can function without friction and move. However, the natural occurrence of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate decreases with increasing age, or after having an injury to the joint. This results in the articular cartilage not being regenerated at the same rate as it breaks down. By providing supplements of these natural substances, we therefore help maintain the joint's flexibility and normal function.

Below products contain glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in combination with hyaluronic acid. These three components are found naturally in the cartilage and act synergistically for the joint to function normally.
