Chondroitin Sulfate is a component found in animal cartilage and is used primarily by active individuals and people with osteoarthritis to heal and protect damaged cartilage and also to improve joint strength and health.
Chondroitin works by lubricating our joints, which can be worn down by every day wear and tear, injuries from sports, or just by improper nutrition. Chondroitin Sulfate will repair connective tissue by allowing more nutrients and water to pass through cartilage and also by improving the strength and flexibility of connective tissue.
Chondroitin Sulfate is best used at a range of 250-500mg three times daily and is best taken with morning, noon, and evening meals. Research has shown that Chondroitin works well with 500mg of glucosamine and 500mg of MSM. The combination of the three has done wonders for people and has been a break through combination to many people. You may also try using 500-2000mg of Vitamin C, which will help your body produce and stabilize collagen in protective tissue.
It is recommended that you take no more than ten grams a day due to the fact that it may cause nausea. If you experience nausea with a smaller amount, drop it down slowly to find you target dose.
