Were you looking for information about Glucosamine and Chondroitin? Glucosamine condroitin is a common misspelling of glucosamine and chondroitin.
Glucosamine and chondroitin supplements are often used for the treatment of arthritis. These products contain an amino sugar (glucosamine) and a molecule (chondroitin) naturally found in the human body. These compounds appear to work for arthritis by decreasing inflammation, stimulating chondrocytes and the production of hyaluronic acid, and inhibiting a certain cartilage-damaging enzyme. You should consult your healthcare provider before taking glucosamine and chondroitin if you have a bleeding disorder, prostate cancer, or high cholesterol.
