Glucosamine and chondroitin have both been shown to play a significant role in the formation and maintenance of cartilage.
Glucosamine is a sugar-based compound that assists in the construction of glycosaminoglycans, which are a major constituent of joint cartilage. Though glucosamine has been known about for over 100 years, it's only in recent times that it has been studied for its effect on joint health. Recent studies have shown promising results, which is why we recommend a high-quality glucosamine supplements such as this one from Lamberts as a daily safeguard for anybody who is concerned about the health of their joints.
Chondroitin is a structural component of many organisms, and a major constituent of the cartilage that is found in our joints. Studies suggest that as well as playing a structural role, chondroitin plays a particular role in attracting water into cartilage, thus preventing it from drying out. Lamberts chondroitin is marine-sourced.
