Promotes Healthy Joints

  Source Naturals Glucosamine Chondroitin provides important building blocks for healthy joints and connective tissues. Glucosamine, an amino sugar, is an essential structural component of glucosaminoglycans, large linear molecules that help to lubricate joints, nourish cartilage and connective tissue, and assist in wound healing. Manganese is involved in the synthesis of collagen, and chondroitin sulfate lends additional structural support via its high degree of interaction with collagen fibers. Molybdenum aids in complete metabolism of glucosamine and chondroitin.
Naturally Supportive
Glucosamine and chondroitin are known as chondroprotective agents. Chondroprotective agents are natural compounds the body produces to promote healthy joint function. Chondroprotective agents work by supporting joint fluid levels to promote lubrication. In addition, glucosamine and chondroitin combat harmful free radical enzymes that may damage joint cartilage, as well as help enhance circulation in blood vessels that lead to the joint.

Glucosamine is a key building block of cartilage that is derived from the sugar glucose, the main sugar found circulating in the blood stream. Glucosamine is concentrated in joint cartilage and stimulates chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to help maintain cartilage and collagen. It enters the joint space and is incorporated into proteoglycans. These are cells that form large structures and attract water to the joint space for lubrication of cartilage during movement.

Chondroitin sulfate is a natural component of human cartilage composed of a long chain of specialized polysaccharides (sugars). Chondrointin sulfate supports the structural components of joint cartilage and promotes hydration of the joint for improved mobility. Since cartilage does not have blood vessels to supply itself with nutrients, chondroitin supports the joint by channeling nutrients to cartilage cells.
