CHONDROITIN is a carbohydrate that occurs naturally in the body. It is one of the products necessary for the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans – one of the major components of a cartilage. But it probably plays a more important role by blocking and neutralizing destructive enzymes (enzymes Collagenase and Phospholipase) in the joints.
Chondroitin, like glucosamine, is a natural component of cartilage. Chondroitin is also involved in the lubrication and nutrition of the joint, and helps the joints to resist compression. Manganese and boron are minerals which appear to play roles in joint health. Manganese is essential for the production of cartilage and bone. Boron plays a role in the chemical make-up of bones and joints.
Many people take glucosamine and chondroitin, alone or together, for osteoarthritis. Some people believe this helps. But an analysis of studies looking at glucosamine or chondroitin for osteoarthritis in the hip or knee did not show that these supplements slow joint destruction or relieve pain.
