Chondroitin sulfate is an acidic mucopolysaccharide extracted from healthy domestic animal cartilage or shark cartilage. It is widely found in animal cartilage, throat bone, nasal bone, and also in tendons, ligaments, skin, cornea and other tissues. Chondroitin sulfate mainly exists in the form of chondroitin sulfate sodium salt. In terms of biomedicine applications, as a medicine for treating arthritis in orthopedics, it has become a hot spot in the research and development of chondroitin due to its recognized curative effect. Similarly, chondroitin is also used in the treatment of tissue engineering, ophthalmology and cardiovascular diseases; specifically.
* Participate in the manufacture of bones-bones are made of calcium and phosphorus. However, amino acids and vitamin D are needed to make bones. During bone formation, chondroitin sulfate plays an important role in transporting or supporting materials to form bones. * Maintain the smoothness of the joints-Chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid are the main components of cartilage (27-43%) that are mostly present in the joints, which impart elasticity and smoothness to the cartilage. In addition, it is also related to the maintenance of the elasticity of the ligaments or tendons surrounding the joints. Hyaluronic acid is the main component of synovial fluid, and both chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid can promote joint smoothness. Chondroitin can perform the following functions to relieve joint pain:
