Winwa OsteoActiv Plus Chondrotin Capsule 100's
What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine is the principal component of the GAGs, long-chain polymers of repeating disaccharide units, which form the basis of the proteoglycan component of the matrix of all connective tissues, including cartilage. Glucosamine is produced in the body by the addition of an amino group to glucose. This ability declines with age and predisposes the body to osteoarthritis. In vitro experiments have shown a dose-dependent increase in proteoglycan after administering Glucosamine, and increased synthesis of collagen. Glucosamine is perhaps the most widely marketed supplement for degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis), and is available from most pharmacies and health stores, usually as the sulfate or hydrochloride salt. It is sometimes combined in supplements with the Chondroitin Sulfate, a GAG derived from bovine or calf cartilage.
What is Chondroitin Sulfate?
Each Capsule contains:
Chondroitin Sulfate is a GAG composed of linear repeating units of D-galactosamine and D-glucuronic acid. This compound is the predominant GAG found in articular cartilage. In humans it is also found in bone, cartilage, cornea, skin and the arterial wall. Chondroitin Sulfate comes in three forms, A, B and C. The two most commonly found Chondroitin Sulfate in supplements are types A (Chondroitin 4-Sulfate) and C (Chondroitin 6-Sulfate). Chondroitin Sulfate is found primarily in fish cartilage as well as cartilaginous rings of bovine trachea. Chondroitin Sulfate type A (CSA) exists in the human body and mammalian cartilage while Chondroitin Sulfate type C (CSC) is highly presented in fish cartilage. Each type of Chondroitin Sulfate may vary in molecular weight and thus differs in purity and bioavailability.
