Chondroitin Sulfate as a Joint Pain Reliever
Why You Should Consider Using Joint Supplements such as Chondroitin Sulfate for Joint Pain Relief and to Help
Maintain Joint Function.
Many forms of joint pain are directly related to a deficiency of healthy cartilage in the joints. The cartilage
that lubricates and cushions the joints of the body experiences wear and tear on a daily basis. In healthy joints,
wear and tear is repaired via a biological balancing process. If the joints become too damaged or the body is
unable to keep up with repairs, joint supplements may be necessary.
In order to keep joints healthy, damaged cartilage is constantly being removed through the enzymatic
deconstruction and replaced via new cartilage synthesis. This balance is crucial to good joint health.
As many people and animals age, their bodies progressively loose the ability to synthesize the
glycosaminoglycans necessary to synthesize the new cartilage tissues needed to repair injuries and everyday wear
and tear. This can cause inflammation and the need for a joint pain reliever.
Durring times of stress (such as injury) or disease (i.e. certain forms of arthritis) the deconstructive enzymes
in the joints may attack healthy cartilage or compete against new cartilage synthesis.
Where does it come from?
While Chondroitin Sulfate is found in the cartilaginous tissues of many invertebrates, the Chondroitin Sulfate
utilized in joint pain supplements is usually derived from Cattle, Pigs, or Sharks.
What source is best?
When good quality materials are compared, it is believed that the source of the material has little to do with
its effectiveness. Companies usually choose a material based upon varying economical, social and ethical
For example, in markets where customers are especially sensitive to the issue of BSE - Mad Cow's Disease (such
as certain European markets), a company may choose to utilize a shark material rather than one from a bovine source
On the other hand, Bovine material may be more appropriate for a customer that is interested in a material to
satisfy a market that understands BSE and the precautions taken by companies such as IRMA Corporation to ensure
Anothr thing to consider is which source works best for your particular situation. Some people will develop side
effects to a variety of different sources, so if you find that one doesn't work for you, try another with different
ingredients to determine if different ingredients could greatly improve your condition.
