Chondroitin Sulphate, also call Chondroitin Sulfate mainly extracted from pigs, cattle, chicken, shark cartilage. For medical and pharmaceutical industry, the treatment of high blood pressure, arthritis, myocardial infarction, chronic nephritis, tinnitus disease, cancer and other health has a role. Chondroitin Sulphate on corneal collagen fibers has a protective effect, can promote the growth of the matrix fibers, enhanced permeability, improved blood circulation, accelerate metabolism, and promote infiltration of fluid absorption and the elimination of inflammation; promote corneal trauma healing and improve the symptoms of dry eye.

Chondroitin Sulphate mainly used in arthritis, eye drops, etc. Drug as a treatment for joint diseases often used in conjunction with glucosamine, with pain, and promote the efficacy of cartilage regeneration, joint problems can be fundamentally improved.
Chondroitin Sulphate can play the following effect to relieve joint pain problems
1. Chondroitin Sulphate provide padded effect, ease of operation, impact and friction, Chondroitin Sulphate role like “liquid magnets”, inhaled water can proteoglycan molecules within the cartilage thickening and like a sponge, and increase the amount of intra-articular synovial fluid. Thus, Chondroitin Sulphate can provide a “padded” role to enhance the joint capabilities and ease the shock when walking or beat the impact and friction.
2. Chondroitin Sulphate for the important oxygen and nutrients delivered to the joints, to help remove the waste within the joint is one of the important functions of chondroitin as a pipeline for conveying important cartilage oxygen supply and nutrients, while the carbon dioxide and waste to be excluded. Because there is no blood supply to the articular cartilage, all of oxygenation, nourishment and lubrication comes from the synovial fluid. Due to aging, injury or disease caused by loss of chondroitin and hence cause the loss of synovial fluid, leading to cartilage malnutrition, dry, thin and fragile. Chondroitin Sulphate combined intake of glucosamine and chondroitin can be more effective in protecting, reversing damage and promoting repair of articular cartilage.
3. Chondroitin Sulphate Other effects: inhibition of cartilage destruction of enzymes (eg elastase and cathepsin), so the cartilage is broken down or dissolved. From the root of the problem at the start, inhibit COX-2 activity, to stop the inflammation of the joints.
