Innovate Magazine - - Contents -

Both of these com­pounds make up nor­mal hu­man car­ti­lage. Of course, car­ti­lage is es­sen­tial to bones and joints be­cause it is ef­fec­tively the cush­ion be­tween them. There have been many re­search stud­ies that have demon­strated that the com­bi­na­tion of glu­cosamine and chon­droitin work syn­er­gis­ti­cally to com­bat os­teoarthri­tis (or at least it’s symp­toms). Strength­en­ing joints and car­ti­lage is ex­tremely im­por­tant to ath­letes be­cause of the con­stant stress placed on them dur­ing high per­for­mance ac­tiv­i­ties like re­sis­tance train­ing.
