Joint Factors (Gluco/Chondroitin), 60 caps
Chondroitin Sulfate is necessary in the production of cartilage. Proteoglycans, a vital component of cartilage tissue, is produced by Chondroitin. Chondroitin attracts water to the proteoglycans and holds it there, which is important to maintaining health joints. It also protects existing cartilage from premature degeneration by blocking certain enzymes that destroy cartilage and prevent nutrients from reaching the cartilage. Chondroitin is derived from powdered shark cartilage or cow-trachea cartilage.
