It also contains a variety of other beneficial supplements that help maintain the synovial fluid that lubricates joints.
Cartilage is the rubbery tissue that cushions bones at the joints. Glucosamine is a compound found naturally in the body, made from fructose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine is needed to produce glycosaminoglycan, a molecule used in the formation and repair of cartilage and other body tissues.
Chondroitin, or chondroitin sulfate, is a chemical that is normally found in cartilage around joints in the body. During osteoarthritis, cartilage in the joints breaks down. When this occurs, chondroitin sulfate is used as a building block for new cartilage, thus resulting in slowing down the breakdown.
