Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin sulfate is a chain of sugars found naturally in your body that gives your cartilage elasticity and helps it resist compression. In dietary supplements, this sugar is usually mixed with glucosamine to help lessen the effects of osteoarthritis by relieving joint pain. Chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine dietary supplements are also believed to slow cartilage damage and even help repair cartilage. The chondroitin sulfate produced at Sioux Pharm, Inc. comes primarily from bovine trachea as well as bovine gullet and scapula. Sioux Pharm's chondroitin sulfate meets the GRAS specifications, meaning the product is "generally regarded as safe." Chondropureā„¢ is a specific brand of chondroitin sulfate manufactured solely at Sioux Pharm, Inc. and is distributed to many companies where the product is added to dietary supplements.
