Derived from bovine sources, chondroitin plays a vital role in the production & regeneration of cartilage; it acts as a cushion in our joints & helps to maintain the flexibility of soft tissue. Superior bovine source 95% grade.
Most people over age 35 have at least some wear and tear in their joints, but that doesn't mean it should cramp your style.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It usually has a gradual onset and begins after the age of forty. The knees, hips, fingers and vertebrae are most susceptible. The joint deterioration is due to faulty or deficient repair of bone and cartilage in the joint. The standard North American diet is deficient in the minerals necessary for proper joint repair; therefore it is not surprising that osteoarthritis is a common concern. Osteoarthritis causes stiffness and joint pain on motion.
It is typically worse in the morning. Initially there is no inflammation or swelling of the joint. As the damage progresses the joint may become inflamed and deformed. Muscles around the joint can tense up, joint mobility may decrease and there may be a grating feeling on movement. The pain becomes constant and occurs even when at rest.
Glucosamine is a precursor molecule for the formation of cartilage, the connective tissue disk that acts as a cushion and eliminates friction in your joints.
As we age our ability to make glucosamine decreases and loss of glucosamine decreases the integrity of cartilage. in joints, that results in less support, cushioning and more friction, like wear-and-tear injury. Glucosamine also has anti-inflammatory properties, which help the joint to repair itself after injury. Studies show that glucosamine supplementation improves joint function and decreases pain in individuals suffering from osteoarthritis. Glucosamine can decrease the destruction of cartilage that occurs when arthritis sufferers use unnatual anti-inflammatory products.
Chondroitin sulfate is a component of cartilage, the connective tissue disk that acts as a cushion in your joints. Cartilage also forms other parts of the body like the outer ear, tip of the nose and lining of the vessels. Cartilage is a mix of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and chondroitin is the most abundant type of GAG. Chondroitin sulfate absorbs water, making the cartilage thick and spongy, to distribute forces evenly over the joint. Loss of chondroitin makes the disk dry and brittle, lessening its ability to cushion. Chondroitin also inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage and is a part of other joint tissues. Supplemental chondroitin has been shown to improve joint mobility and reduce the pain and swelling associated with arthritis. Natural health practitioners for osteoarthritis and other joint injuries recommend chondroitin sulfate.
Drug Treatments Can Actually Worsen Arthritis
Conventional treatment with unnatural anti-inflammatories has been shown to worsen arthritis. Side effects of some are gastrointestinal bleeding, stomach ulcers, heart attacks and liver problems. Some of these medications, especially the NSAID group can actually accelerate the degradation of joint tissue. Products like cortisone and prednisone sometimes prescribed for arthritis, while effective at relieving discomfort in the short term, can cause a loss of bone mass.
