Ultra Botanicals Glucosamine Chondroitin with MSM This premium joint support formula combines 1000mg of three joint-specific ingredients: Chondroitin Sulfate, Glucosamine Sulfate and pure MSM. This potent combination has shown to aid in improving overall joint health. MSM is commonly taken for joint problems, aches and pains, and allergy season support. MSM's sulfur content is used by the body to maintain normal connective tissues, and may have anti-inflammatory properties. MSM also helps nourish the skin and remove toxins from the body. Glucosamine and chondroitin are natural compounds found in healthy cartilage. Glucosamine sulfate is a normal constituent of glycoaminoglycans in cartilage matrix and synovial fluid, and is used in the formation and repair of cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan in cartilage, an important structural component of cartilage, and provides much of its resistance to compression. According to Mayoclinic.com, evidence from randomized controlled trials supports the use of glucosamine sulfate in the treatment of osteoarthritis, particularly of the knee. It is believed that the sulfate moiety provides clinical benefit in the synovial fluid by strengthening cartilage and aiding glycosaminoglycan synthesis. Based on human research, there is good evidence to support the use of glucosamine sulfate in the treatment of mild-to-moderate knee osteoarthritis. Chondroitin was first extracted and purified in the 1960s.The consensus of expert and industry opinions supports the use of chondroitin and its common partner agent, glucosamine, for improving symptoms and stopping (or possibly reversing) the degenerative process of osteoarthritis.
