An analysis of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate content in oral joint supplement products

Published: 2003-01-31

Brief content of the article
Oral supplements intended for the treatment and prevention of joint related problems may not contain ingredients at levels that meet label claims. Samples from products were taken to test this hypothesis. It appeared that label values from most products were different than the analysed glucosamine or chondroitin sulfate content.
Keywords: glycosaminoglycan, keratin sulfate, hyaluronan
