When glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates are combined, they provide double action support to relieve the pain and discomfort of osteoarthritis symptoms. Glucosamine sulfate is used to make the cartilage needed for repairing joints, while chondroitin actively fights the enzymes that breakdown joint tissue and helps maintain the nutrients and fluid within joints that allows for smooth and cushioned movement. Combining them into one supplement provides an effective way to ensure both vital nutrients are available to relieve symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint dysfunction. Actively protecting tissue and repairing cartilage can help slow joint degeneration and potentially delay the need for replacement surgery.Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate by Natural Factors contains naturally sourced ingredients that proactively fight the root cause of joint pain and reduce the need for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which simply mask pain.
