What Is It?
Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are combined with manganese to provide support for optimal cartilage matrix composition, connective tissue strength, and joint comfort.*
This convenient formula combines two of the most important cartilage building blocks, glucosamine and chondroitin, with manganese ascorbate for enhanced connective tissue support. In a study, the combination of glucosamine HCl, chondroitin sulfate and manganese ascorbate demonstrated the ability to promote joint function. The combination of glucosamine and chondroitin may also provide support for healthy hyaluronic acid content and synovial fluid. The trace mineral manganese plays a key role in supporting glycosaminoglycan and mucopolysaccharide production and encourages the antioxidant activity of superoxide dismutase. Vitamin C, as ascorbate, is a vital nutrient for proper collagen formation and also serves as an antioxidant.‡
Uses For Glucosamine + Chondroitin with Manganese
Cartilage Composition: Glucosamine promotes the synthesis of the glycosaminoglycan chondroitin sulfate. Chondroitin sulfate is responsible for building the ground substance of cartilage, molecules known as proteoglycans. Studies have indicated that glucosamine HCl has the ability to support healthy cartilage integrity, in part by maintaining healthy matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzyme activity. The trace mineral manganese plays a key role in supporting glycosaminoglycan and mucopolysaccharide production and encourages the antioxidant activity of superoxide dismutase. Ascorbate is a vital nutrient for proper collagen formation and also serves as an antioxidant.*
Joint Motility and Function: Several studies suggest that the combination of glucosamine HCl, chondroitin sulfate and manganese ascorbate may provide particular support for joint mobility and comfort.*
