Chondroitin sulfate has good water absorption, is an acidic mucoglycan, mainly used in arthritis, eye drops, etc., with analgesic, promote cartilage regeneration, to improve the elderly degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis has a certain effect, can improve joint problems. The specific efficacy is described as follows:
1, adjust the function of the body - collagen fiber and elastic fiber together, with the function of adjusting the body at all levels of weave and organs. Without mucopolysaccharides or collagen, cells can't function properly, and this is where the body begins to break down.
2, the water supply of nutrition - chondroitin sulfuric acid has good water retention, this property can keep water in the body, with water as the medium, nutrients such as digestion, absorption, transport, metabolism and so on. Once chondroitin sulfuric acid is reduced, the retention of water in the body decreases, and the digestion and absorption of nutrients cannot be smoothly carried out.
3. Maintenance of micronutrients -- Calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium ions have special affinity with mucopolysaccharides. Mucopolysaccharides have previously been known to play an important role in the movement, or regulation, of these hydrolysates. In addition, it is closely related to brain function.
4. Help make bone -- Bones are made of calcium and phosphorus. But making bone requires amino acids and vitamin D. Chondroitin sulfate plays an important role in transporting materials or supporting materials during bone formation.
5. Early healing of wounds -- When the body is injured, chondroitin sulfate plays an important role in the repair of wounds. It heals wounds because chondroitin sulfate promotes granulation and animal mucopolysaccharides prevent post-operative bonding.
6, keep the joint smooth effect - chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid is mostly present in the joint cartilage of the main components (27-43%) give cartilage elasticity and smoothness. In addition, it is related to the elastic maintenance of ligaments or tendons surrounding the joint. Hyaluronic acid is the main component of synovial fluid, and both chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid contribute to smooth joints.
