From the Health Library of SterlingMedicalAdvice.com: “Why is Everyone Taking Chondroitin?"

By Jeffrey Sterling, MD September 26, 2018

Chondroitin is a supplement that has become quite popular amongst those suffering from arthritis (specifically osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease). Its natural form is made from cow and shark cartilage. Our bodies use chondroitin to make new bones, cartilage, and tendons while also aiding nutrients to enter existing cartilage. Recall that cartilage is the tough, white fibrous portion of our joints that allows pain-free movement.
Be advised that chondroitin use is not without side effects. Some users of it have reported mild stomach discomfort, nausea and rarely, shortness of breath.
