Chondroitin Supplement

What Is Chondroitin?

Chondroitin or Chondroitin Sulfate is a crucial substance which occurs naturally in our connective tissue. It is a key component in the development and repair of cartilage and is a popular dietary supplement used to treat osteoarthritis, among other joint disorders. Chondroitin and Glucosamine are often combined in supplement form to achieve maximum efficiency.

What are the benefits of Chondroitin

Chondroitin has been suggested to be an effective treatment for a variety of joint disorders, and supplements are gaining in popularity. Studies have found that Chondroitin may:

  • Prevent joint cartilage from breaking down;
  • Stimulate cartilage repair;
  • Reduce painful symptoms of osteoarthritis, in turn reducing painkiller use;
  • Maintain joint elasticity.

It has also been suggested that Chondroitin can aid injury recovery and wound healing.

Where Can You Get Chondroitin?

Our bodies produce Chondroitin naturally, where it is found in cartilage around our joints and bones. However, as we age or our bodies are put under more physical strain, which in turn causes cartilage damage, it becomes more difficult to regenerate and repair this cartilage.

There are very few foods containing Chondroitin, and so supplementation is the easiest way to maintain declining Chondroitin Sulfate levels.

Natural Health Plus offers a selection of supplements including a combined capsule containing Chondroitin and Glucosamine for those who wish to maintain joint wellbeing.
