CHONDROITIN SULPHATE is a structural component of joint cartilage. The structure of chondroitin sulphate in cartilage gives cartilage much of its compression resistance, providing shock absorption within the joint. Loss of chondroitin sulphate in cartilage may lead to osteoarthritis.

GLUCOSAMINE HYDROCHLORIDE forms the backbone of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), the building blocks of cartilage and other connective tissue.

MSM is a source of the mineral sulphur, required for the formation of cross-bridges between collagen molecules. These add strength and stability to the structure of collagen rich ligaments, tendons and joint tissues. Glucosamine functions better when there is an adequate source of sulphur.

MANGANESE is a trace mineral that is required by the body for the production of chondroitin sulphates, important in maintaining normal joint cartilage and repairing cartilage. Dietary deficiencies of manganese may result in the abnormal development of bones and joints, and impaired ability to make and repair joint cartilage.

COPPER is a trace mineral which is required for the production of normal connective tissue, including tendons, ligaments and cartilage joint lining. Copper deficiency has been indicated in developmental bone disease, including osteochondrosis dessicans. Dietary deficiency of copper may result in bone and joint disease, and tendon and ligament problems.

ZINC is a trace mineral needed in bone and joint health. Zinc is part of antioxident enzymes in the body which neutralise free radicals before they can damage normal body tissue.
