Looking for a way to keep joints healthy? Chondroitin retains moisture in the joints, which allows for greater flexibility and resilience.

Building blocks for healthy joints. Helps rebuild damaged, inflamed and painful joints such as those found in osteoarthritis.



Building blocks for healthy joints.

Chondroitin sulfate is a long-chain sugar molecule that is found in joints

and connective tissues.

We don't usually eat the joint gristle in meat but a vital chemical in this

material is available as a nutritional supplement. Although most studies

on Chondroitin have used injections, experienced has shown that when oral

chondroitin supplements are consumed, the body can use a significant percentage

of it to rebuild damaged, inflamed and painful joints such as those found

in osteoarthritis.

Large molecules called proteoglycans provide strength and flexibility to

connective tissue.

That is why the gristle around joints in meat is so tough to chew.

Chondroitin sulfate works with proteoglycans to build a tissue matrix that

attracts and holds fluid to absorb physical impact stresses. When these

pockets of fluid absorb stress, they protect the rest of the joint tissue

from being damaged by the wear and tear of daily activity.

In addition, because the body gradually exchanges the fluid, fresh nutrients

are constantly brought in to nourish the joint tissues. The function of

chondroitin is to attract and hold these fluids.

Besides being a simple building block, chondroitin also inhibits the enzymes

that destroy cartilage and improves the ability of nutrients circulating

in the blood to reach cartilage tissue.

Nature's Sunshine recommends using chondroitin in combination with glucossamine.

  • Supports the production of glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans and collagen—building blocks of healthy cartilage.
  • Helps attract fluid into the joints that acts as a sponge or shock absorber during impact.
  • May help increase joint flexibility and resiliency.
  • Aids in getting essential nutrients to the cartilage.
  • Helps protect cartilage from damaging, nutrition-depleting enzymes.

How It Works:

Cartilage functions to protect bones from moving against each other and to reduce friction. Chondroitin helps bond connective tissue to maintain strength and inhibits enzymes that can deplete cartilage nutrition. It helps retain moisture in the joints, allowing for flexibility and resiliency, and cushioning against activities like jumping and lifting.

In addition, chondroitin works with other nutrients like glucosamine to stimulate the rebuilding and maintenance of cartilage. The body produces chondroitin, but that production decreases as we age. Chondroitin is found in foods, but usually only in small amounts. Fortunately, the body absorbs chondroitin well, making supplementation a viable alternative.
