More Info:
Chondroitin Sulfate capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain 300 mg of chondroitin sulfate. Chondroitin sulfate protects existing joint cartilage, while also supporting the synthesis of new connective tissues, principally cartilage.

Chondroitin sulfate may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to support the body’s connective tissues, such as skin, tendons, ligaments, bone, and cartilage.

Chondroitin Sulfate is a glycosaminoglycan formed naturally by the body for the synthesis and maintenance of connective tissue. Glycosaminoglycans, formerly termed mucopolysaccharides, are an integral component of all connective tissues. Connective tissues have various functions in the body. They support internal organs and connect bones to each other (ligaments), form bone, cartilage, and the walls of blood vessels, attach muscles to bones (tendons), and replace tissues that have been damaged. The two primary components of connective tissue are collagen and proteoglycans. Collagen is the strong, fibrous protein that physically connects our tissues.

Proteoglycans are large carbohydrate-rich structures, resembling a bottle-brush in three-dimensional structure, i.e. a central protein rod with many strings of glucosamine-containing glycosaminoglycans extending outwards. Proteoglycans hold large amounts of water forming a stiff gel by virtue of their dense negative charges from sulfates. Proteoglycans link to collagen fibers to help form connective tissues. They provide resiliency, load distribution, shock-absorbing, compressive, and lubricating properties to connective tissues and joints.

Chondroitin Sulfate is supportive and protective of connective tissues in numerous ways. It is an excellent source of n-acetylgalactoaminoglycan for the synthesis and protection of proteoglycans associated with cartilage tissues. Chondroitin Sulfate also protects existing cartilage by reducing water loss from the proteoglycan-formed gel and by inhibiting enzymatic breakdown of cartilage. Chondroitin Sulfate is often used in conjunction with glucosamine sulfate for optimal support and maintenance of connective tissues. The availability of glucosamine sulfate is the rate-limiting step in glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan synthesis in all connective tissues. Glucosamine is also the precursor of chondroitin.

Thus, if insufficient amounts of chondroitin sulfate are available, some glucosamine will be diverted to produce chondroitin. As this conversion requires large amounts of metabolic energy and decreases the availability of glucosamine for other uses, it is advantageous to have adequate amounts of chondroitin sulfate available. When adequate Chondroitin Sulfate is available to help protect tissues from premature breakdown, glucosamine can more readily stimulate synthesis of healthy new tissue.
