Chondroitin sulfate is a chemical that is normally found in cartilage around joints in the body.
People use chondroitin sulfate for heart disease, weak bones (osteoporosis), to reduce inflammation and high cholesterol.
Chondroitin sulfate is also used in a complex with iron for treating iron-deficiency anemia.
Chondroitin is believed to enhance the shock-absorbing properties of collagen and block enzymes that break down cartilage thus helping cartilage retain water and may reverse cartilage loss when used with glucosamine.
WARNING: consult a health practitioner for an adequate dose recommendation and any information required for a continuous use.
