ChondroSamine Plus® provides comprehensive support for connective tissue, like cartilage found in joints. These tissues require an adequate supply of important nutrient building blocks to maintain their integrity. ChondroSamine Plus® supplies Glucosamine (as glucosamine hydrochloride), along with Purified Chondroitin Sulfates, and a complementary array of important synergistic compounds, including vitamins, minerals, MSM, and the antioxidant enzymes SOD and catalase.
- Glucosamine sulfate helps support the production, and limit the breakdown of proteoglycans, a class of compounds that make up the cartilage matrix of joint tissue.*
- Chondroitin sulfate has been shown to support the structural matrix of joints as well as the production of hyaluronic acid (major component of synovial fluid which keeps joints “lubricated” and moving freely).* It may also help limit chondrocytes from producing enzymes and other compounds that stimulate the breakdown of the cartilage matrix of joint tissue.*
- OptiMSM® contains naturally occurring organic sulfur which supports the formation of healthy tissue including bones, joints, ligaments and tendons as well as helping to support a normal, healthy inflammatory response.*
- Manganese and vitamin C are both essential for the production of the collagen matrix that helps support the structural integrity of cartilage.*
