A combination of Glucosamine Sulfate and Chondroitin Sulfate, the natural building blocks of cartilage. Many studies have shown that glucosamine/chondroitan helps to rebuild the joint cushion which is cartilage. We can not possibly add to the copious articles written about Glucosamine Sulfate as it applies to it's use with arthritis sufferers.
Many arthritis sufferers have reported excellent results with glucosamine sulfate. Some claim that it has completely eliminated their pain. There have been many articles calling it a "cure" that actually rebuilds cartilage tissue that has been damaged or destroyed. Although the verdict still isn't in on that claim, we do know that many have claimed excellent results.
Recently there have been books written that claim that you also need a substance called chondroitin sulfate in order to achieve the maximum results with glucosamine sulfate. A quick word about the use of shark cartilage. Many are taking shark cartilage along with glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate or a combination of the two. Keep in mind that ANY cartilage product is about 98 % chondroitin sulfate. The reason that relief is noticed after a regimen of shark cartilage is because it is almost all chondroitin sulfate !
True it does contain other factors, but none that benefit the symptoms of arthritis except the chondroitin sulfate. This is an expensive way to get your glucosamine or your chondroitin sulfate. If you are using shark cartilage and glucosamine sulfate along with chondroitin sulfate, you can probably save yourself a substantial amount by eliminating the shark cartilage. If after eliminating the shark cartilage things aren't going as well, we suggest that you increase your glucosamine sulfate or chondroitin since they are less expensive than shark cartilage.
