Chondroitin sulfate

Chondroitin is one of the principal components of cartilage. It can reduce cartilage deterioration which occurs with age and causes pain, inflammation and stiffness as the bones painfully rub against each other. Chondroitin is considered a chondroprotective agent that provides cartilage elasticity. It is recommended that Chondroitin sulfate is added to diets in cases of problems with joint wear (older, overweight, or athletic dogs, etc.). It is usually complemented with glucosamine due to its effects on cartilage regeneration.
