SKU#: 00522

Glucosamine and chondroitin have been shown in clinical studies to support healthy cartilage and joint function.1-3 As a component of cartilage, glucosamine is key for joint function.4-8 Our bodies produce a certain amount, but as we grow older, we lose the capacity to make enough. This leads to drying of the cartilage in areas such as the knees, hips, and hands, which in turn causes the cartilage to harden. With this comes joint discomfort and stiffness.

Like glucosamine, chondroitin is another major component of cartilage and attracts fluid and helps stimulate the production of cartilage.9 Chondroitin acts as a carrier of liquid nutrient to the joints, thus supporting healthy fluid balance and joint movement and mobility.

Life Extension's Glucosamine/Chondroitin Caps are the highest quality supplement available on the market today. This combination uses only high-quality sources, yet is priced lower than products of comparable potency sold by commercial companies.
