Glucosamine and Chondroitin are Vital for Healthy Cartilage


Glucosamine and Chondroitin are both key elements in joint health.  Damage to the cartilage in the joints can cause debilitating conditions, such as osteoarthritis.  The prevention of cartilage deterioration is key in maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle.  Glucosamine and Chondroitin are both substances that are naturally found in the body, which act synergistically to preserve the integrity of the joints. Many times the body does not produce enough of these compounds, so supplementation is required for cartilage growth and repair.

Cartilage is comprised of 65-80% water, as well as collagen and proteoglycans, which forms the cartilage matrix.  Cartilage covers the ends of the bones within the joints, allowing for smooth movement. Cartilage does not receive a direct supply of blood, and therefore the body cannot repair it quickly.  The slow rate of repair leaves the cartilage susceptible to damage.  The cartilage is also doused regularly in synovial fluid, which provides fluidity in the joint; a natural lubricant. Due to wear and tear of the joints, or because the body isn’t producing enough Glucosamine or Chondroitin, synovial fluid can diminish leaving the joints dry.  The cartilage itself can wear away, creating a “bone-on-bone” effect in the joint, which can be very painful.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin can be found in high-quality liquid supplements, such as Synflex®.  Liquid formulas are absorbed much better by the body and can quickly get to work on the health of your joints. The compounds serve the same role as prescription medications, without the adverse side effects.   Whether you are experiencing joint pain, or if you are trying to prevent the unwanted degeneration, a supplement is an easy way to keep your joints in optimum condition.
