This product combines the hugely popular joint care nutrient, Glucosamine sulphate, with another called Chondroitin sulphate. The latter is an important structural component of cartilage, the tough tissue that lines the surfaces of bones, and forms a major part of the extra-cellular matrix that provides much of cartilage’s resistance to compression.
Benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Glucosamine is known to help:
- Reduce osteoarthritis-related pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints
- Improve symptoms knee or hip osteoarthritis
- Alleviate symptoms for up to 3 months after ceasing treatment
Chondroitin is known to help:
- Attract fluid into the cartilage
- Enhance the elasticity of cartilage
- Inhibit the proteolytic enzymes that break-down cartilage
Chondroitin sulphate is now a popular supplement worldwide, following a number of positive studies, and is usually combined with glucosamine as this compound works in a different but complimentary way.
This product provides these two nutrients at levels that are effective.
Optimum volume of Chondroitin
It is worth noting that a common practice with chondroitin supplements is to use preparations that are just 20% chondroitin, but the label declares this as if it is 100% chondroitin. Therefore a supplement declared as ‘400mg chondroitin sulphate’ is often just 80mg of chondroitin sulphate.
However, this LAMBERTS supplement uses 110mg of a 90% preparation to provide 100mg of pure marine chondroitin.
