What is chondroitin?
Chondroitin is found in cartilage within our bodies. As a supplement, it can be manufactured from animal sources, while vegetarian forms can be made in a lab.

Among US adults, it’s estimated that nearly 27 million people have clinical osteoarthritis and 1.28 to 1.36 million people have inflammatory arthritis.
