Our glucosamine and chondroitin supplements provide a daily dosage through a single tablet. You can use these supplements to support your joints and cartilage nutritionally. Glucosamine is naturally present in the human body, but it lessens as we grow older. Your body naturally produces chondroitin. In order to maintain cartilage health, chondroitin absorbs a large amount of fluid (primarily water) into the connective tissue. Furthermore, it may inhibit the enzyme that breaks down cartilage and provide the building blocks with the body needs to build new cartilage. Glucosamine and chondroitin are both used in alternative medicine as possible aids in the treatment of osteoarthritis pain. A supplement is the easiest way to ensure the body gets enough of both glucosamine and chondroitin since it isn’t readily available in the diet.
