Glucosamine & Chondroitin provides significant benefit for joint and cartilage support as indicated in clinical research. NSF Certified for Sport.
Thorne's Glucosamine & Chondroitin is NSF Certified for Sport. Supplementing with glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates can provide significant benefit for musculoskeletal support. Chondroitin sulfates, a category of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), are required for the formation of various important components of joint cartilage. These two nutrients – glucosamine and chondroitin – support joint function and mobility by enhancing the body's production of GAGs and preventing their degradation. Clinical research indicates that supplementing with chondroitin sulfates supports joint structures. Some studies have concluded that the combination of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate protects and supports joint surfaces more effectively than glucosamine sulfate alone.
Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agonists, and masking agents.
