A synergistic combination of glucosamine sulphate and chondroitin sulphate. Glucosamine is naturally present in the shells of shellfish, animal bones and bone marrow.
Since glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans are a major component of joint cartilage, supplemental glucosamine may help to prevent cartilage degeneration over extended periods.
Similarly, chondroitin sulfate is a major component of cartilage. The tightly packed and charged sulfates actually provides an electrostatis repulsion that provides much of the resistance of cartilage to compression.
The combination of glucosamine and chondroitin provide a recognised synergistic benefit for cartilage health.
