As we age, our joints are susceptible to damage by wear-and-tear and our weakened ability to manufacture our own Glucosamine Sulfate, a major factor in the health of our cartilage. This painful condition where joints rub against one another is known as osteoarthritis and affects the majority of North Americans over the age of 55. Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate are synergistic natural ingredients useful for relieving osteoarthritic pain.
Scientific studies have shown that Glucosamine Sulfate can actually regenerate new cartilage, helping to re-establish the cushion between joints in the knees and hips. Meanwhile, the nutrient Chondroitin Sulfate acts as a water magnet, helping to bring required fluids and nutrients to the cartilage. Chondroitin also helps to prevent harmful enzymes from eroding cartilage and assists Glucosamine Sulfate in the stimulation of new cartilage growth.
