A lifetime of walking, exercising, and moving can take a toll on your cartilage — the smooth, shiny, white connective tissue that covers the ends of bones. Cartilage cushions the ends of your bones and allows them to move smoothly and easily against each other. As cartilage further deteriorates, the underlying bones may not have enough cushioning from your cartilage.
The chondroitin that is naturally found in our body acts as one of the building blocks of cartilage – the tough tissue that acts as a shock absorber around the joints in humans and animals. Chondroitin is also found in tendons, ligaments, bone and skin.
Vitamin C, or Ascorbic Acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Most people are aware that Vitamin C naturally occurs in oranges and orange juice, however, the vitamin is also found in peppers, strawberries and blackcurrants, broccoli, and even potatoes.
Vitamin C is a vital nutrient that plays a role in many functions in the body such as:
- Supporting normal collagen formation which is important for the maintenance of normal cartilage, bones, blood vessels, skin and teeth.
- Contributing to a normal energy yielding metabolism.
- Contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
- Increasing Iron absorption.
- Playing a role in the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
