Highly Purified Low Molecular Weight (LMW).
Chondroitin is naturally ubiquitous in the body. With advancing age, the bodies own production slows down. External supplementation is required to supply a steady state of chondroitin used as building blocks for cartilage. Below chart shows peak absorption in 2 hours after oral consumption of LMW chondroitin.
Studies have shown that LMW chondroitin can protect the cartilage from inflammatory conditions that lead to pain and swelling and further worsening of the joint condition. It is also noteworthy that its cartilage building effect slows down the progression of cartilage loss in oa disease, which predominantly affects the elderly.
LMW chondroitin sulfate has a high bioavailability and is proven effective in building back cartilage and reducing inflammation. There is a lot of heterogeneity in quality, purity and efficacy in chondroitin and combination brands today; it is because only a handful of them are clinically proven.
Although chondroitin was not as well known as glucosamine in the past but lately its evidence has much exceeded that of the latter. In actual fact it is regarded as similar in efficacy and also safer than glucosamine in higher doses used to treat osteoarthritis, which does not affect insulin resistance.
