Description

Indications

Chondroitin is composed of sugar chains and is naturally occurring in the body. It is thought to assist in maintaining joint fluidity and flexibility. Glucosamine is a sugar protein that aids in the development of cartilage, which is the hard tissue that connects bones near joints. It is naturally found in bone marrow, bones, fungus, and shellfish.

A combination of chondroitin and glucosamine has been utilized in alternative medicine as a potential treatment for osteoarthritis pain. It is unclear if chondroitin and glucosamine are effective in treating any medical conditions. The FDA has not approved the medicinal use of this product. Chondroitin and glucosamine should not be used as a substitute for medication prescribed by a doctor.

Uses and Dosage

If you decide to utilize chondroitin and glucosamine, follow the instructions provided on the packaging or as instructed by your doctor, pharmacist, or other healthcare provider. Avoid exceeding the recommended dosage.

Do not use multiple chondroitin and glucosamine formulations concurrently without consulting a medical professional. Combining different formulations can increase the risk of an overdose.
