Thorne Glucosamine & Chondroitin supports joint function and cartilage support. Also provides musculoskeletal support. Chondroitin sulfates, a category of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), are required for the formation of various important components of joint cartilage. Glucosamine and Chondroitin support joint function and mobility by enhancing the body's production of GAGs and preventing their degradation. Research indicates that supplementing with chondroitin sulfates supports joint structures and some studies have concluded that the combination of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate protects and supports joint surfaces more effectively than glucosamine sulfate alone.
