- Helps to protect against the deterioration of cartilage
Recommended Dose of Chondro-Flx
Adults: Take 1 capsule of Chondro-Flx 4 times per day with food. For joint benefit, use for a minimum of 4 weeks to see beneficial effects. For prolonged use, consult a health care practitioner.
Glucosamine sulfate is a naturally occurring, joint-supporting compound. As a precursor to the primary building blocks of joint tissue (glycolipids, glycoproteins, hyaluronate, and proteoglycans) it is an important starting point for cartilage synthesis.
As the major glycosaminoglycan associated with articular cartilage, chondroitin sulfate is designed to draw water into the joint tissues and hydrate them, allowing for compression when pressure is put on the joint and to rehydrate when the pressure is released.
Cartilage is composed of collagen fibers that impart tensile strength, and proteoglycan molecules (especially chondroitin) that serve as a cushion for joint impact. Proteoglycan
molecules are made of a linear core protein with several hundred molecules of glycosaminoglycans and the protein’s core molecules are attached to a hyaluronic acid frame work. Lifestyle factors and age can both contribute to a breakdown of healthy cartilage and lead to discomfort, which can lead to nutrient and fluid deprivation of the affected articular
cartilage. The ingredients in Chondro-Flx addresses one of the most common causes of joint pain, which is osteoarthritis, by providing the precursor glucosamine, which helps to protect
against the deterioration of cartilage
