regeneration in affected joints. The chemical constituents of
chondroitin help to create spaces in the matrix enhancing flexibility and
cushioning by enabling it to hold more water. Chondroitin is a naturally
occurring compound found in joint tissue. Initial data suggests that
both chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate may be the most
valuable and effective natural treatment for arthritis.
|Applications:||Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus,
connective tissue diseases, bursitis, joint trauma.
|Recommendations:||Look for supplements labeled either chondroitin
sulfate or mucopolysaccriarides. These products should be
pharmaceutical grade to ensure purity and potency. This compound is
usually found in capsule or tablet form.
