Glucosamine and Chondroitin Overview
Body First’s Glucosamine and Chondroitin is a premium joint support supplement commonly used for reducing joint inflammation, improving joint mobility & flexibility, improving circulation around joints and repairing cartilage & connective tissues. *
Both glucosamine and chondroitin are sulfur-based compounds found naturally in your joints. Glucosamine sulfate allows more water to be held within joints by improving synovial fluid thickness. Glucosamine has also been shown to inhibit the breakdown of proteoglycans and may even repair damaged cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate is speculated to also draw water into connective tissues and joints, increasing elasticity and protecting against cartilage breakdown. This mechanism also promotes improved flexibility and mobility in joints due to the increase in elasticity. Chondroitin is currently being studied for its effects on preventing and treating osteoarthritis. *
