A complementary feed to support healthy cartilage joint lubrication connective tissue, healthy coat, skin, manes and tails.
Chondroitin sulphate is a primary component in proteoglycan, an important structural component of cartilage.
Joints contain cartilage and synovial fluid, both of which are shock absorbing and reduce friction during joint movement.
Chondroitin sulphate provides structure, helps cartilage retain water and nutrients, and allows other molecules to move through the cartilage. This is extremely important, as there is no blood supply to cartilage which relies on healthy synovial fluid for its nutrition.
In addition Chondroitin sulphate also works to enhance glucosamine.
As well as joint support; Chondroitin Sulphate also provides excellent nutritional support for healthy, manes, tails, coat and skin.
