Chondroitin generally refers to chondroitin sulfate, which is a white or light yellow amorphous powder chemical. Acidic mucopolysaccharides derived from cartilage tissues such as throat bones, nasal bones, and trachea of pigs also contain hexosamine. Cartilage is a component extracted from bony structures.
The functions are as follows:
First, provide a certain cushioning effect, absorb more water into the proteoglycan molecules, thicken the cartilage, and increase the amount of synovial fluid in the joint, which plays the role of cushioning by enhancing the shock absorption ability of the joint and alleviating the pain. The shock and friction of walking and beating.
Second, make a delivery pipeline to provide oxygen supply and nutrients to the cartilage, while removing carbon dioxide and waste inside.
Third, reduce the occurrence of oxidation in the joints, delay the degradation of chondroitin, and have a certain anti-inflammatory effect. Chondroitin, as a protective agent and nutritional agent for cartilage cells to protect joints and delay joint degeneration, has been widely used in clinical and health care medicines in recent years. Some people have achieved better results after using it. Of course, the effect should not be exaggerated blindly. How much effect needs further research.
