Chondro-Flx (90 caps) by Orthomolecular
As the key precursors to cartilage formation, the ingredients in Chondro-Flx provide full support for joint integrity and movement and a normal inflammatory response. 90 capsules.
- Supports Joint Integrity and Movement
- Helps Protect Cartilage Cells
- Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance
- Enhances Synthesis of Proteoglycans for Healthy Connective Tissue
Cartilage is composed of collagen fibers that impart tensile strength, and proteoglycan molecules (especially chondroitin) that serve as a cushion for joint impact. Chondro-Flx combines glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, vitamin C and bromelain, all of which have a long history of use and a large body of research highlighting their role in supporting joint health. As the key precursors to cartilage formation, the ingredients in Chondro-Flx provide full support for joint integrity and movement and maintain normal inflammatory balance. Suggested Use: 1 capsule three times per day on an empty stomach or as recommended by your health care professional.
Glucosamine Glucosamine sulfate is a naturally occurring, joint-supporting compound. As a precursor to the primary building blocks of joint tissue (glycolipids, glycoproteins, hyaluronate, and proteoglycans) it is an important starting point for cartilage synthesis. Chondroitin Sulfate As the major glycosaminoglycan associated with articular cartilage, chondroitin sulfate (CS) is designed to draw water into the joint tissues and hydrate them, allowing for compression when pressure is put on the joint and to rehydrate when the pressure is released. The chondroitin sulfate in Chondro-Flx is enzymatically processed to provide consistently small, highly absorbed chondroitin molecules. Bromelain Bromelain is a protease derived from pineapple stems that helps to maintain normal inflammatory balance by affecting both the kinin and fibrin pathways. Bromelain also increases the absorption of chondroitin sulfate.
