|A Scientific Overview of… Chondroitin Sulfate
Powerful Natural Support for Joints and Bones
Found Throughout Nature
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) is one of six related substances called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are also referred to as mucopolysaccharides. GAGs occur widely throughout the animal kingdom — in vertebrates and invertebrates, terrestrial and marine organisms, and mammals and non-mammals. Six kinds of GAGs have been found in the tissues and fluids of vertebrates: chondroitin sulfates, keratin sulfates, dermatin sulfates, hyaluronic acid, heparin, and heparin sulfate.
Found in Connective Tissue
CS is widely found in the connective tissues of animals. It occurs in three slightly different forms: CSA, CSB, and CSC. CSA and CSC are found in nasal and tracheal cartilage, articular cartilage (joints), bones, sclera, leukocytes and blood platelets, skin, and umbilical cords. CSB has been found in skin, umbilical cords, and cardiac valves.
Vital for Joint Function
Adequate amounts of CS are vital for normal joint function and maintenance as well as many other self-healing mechanisms. The following list of activities have been proven in numerous scientific studies.
1. Osteogenesis: CSA is an important participant in bone calcification and CSC in bone integrity maintenance (Paroli, 1991; Maurau, 1988).*
2. Analgesic and restorative effect: A very important property of CS is its ability to stimulate the chondrocite (cell that synthesizes the proteoglycans in the articular cartilage), which is conducive to the proper maintenance of the cartilage matrix (Serni, 1991; Vacha, 1994).*
3. Enzymatic inhibition: The capacity of CS to inhibit the action of destructive enzymes of the articular cartilage protects joints and helps maintain harmonic balance of healthy enzyme activity. This in turn helps avoid degradation of hyaluronic acid, a necessary molecule for the maintenance of hydration and viscosity of synovial fluid (Avila, 1976; Marossy, 1981; Pipitone, 1991; Videla Dorna et al., 1994).*
4. Anti-inflammatory effect: (Paroli, 1991; Pipitone, 1991; Rashmir-Raven, 1992).*

Joint Health Capsules for Finger Suppleness
Your product has been magical for us! It had become really painful to fuss over my three cats without real discomfort in bending my fingers to scratch and pet them. What a nuisance! As a musician, too, finger suppleness was becoming a difficulty. It was a real quality of life issue, until my husband and I began taking your Joint Health Capsules at the advice of an older friend. Now all the nuzzling and purring are back, and so is a houseful of music. We can both really tell the difference within a week if we forget to take the wonderful stuff. There are no side effects, and I cannot thank you enough for a second wind! This is Bubba, getting a good tickle from a Joint Health Capsules fan!

"Joint Health Capsules have made a big difference in my quality of life."
I am 35 years old and have a family history of arthritis. I started having pain in my hips about a year ago. It seemed minor at first and would flare up only after I had not exercised for a while. I thought I could control it as long as I exercised regularly. However, it started getting worse regardless of how much I went to the gym. I like to travel and do a lot of sightseeing on foot. I got really scared when I started having difficulty walking on vacations. I knew I needed to do something before it got so bad that I could no longer maintain my active lifestyle. I started taking Joint Health Capsules and after about three weeks, I was nearly pain free. Now, I take Joint Health Capsules, exercise regularly, eat healthy, and get plenty of sleep. Joint Health Capsules have made a big difference in my quality of life.

"My back problems were so bad…"
Thank you again for such high quality products like Joint Health Capsules! I've tried different ones and they do not compare. My back problems were so bad; I was wondering why I even had a farm. DMG 5,600 and Springtime GL worked very well on my two senior horses (respiratory problems and lameness) that four different veterinarians had suggested euthanizing. We are all happy now and living a quality life on the farm!

Joint Health Capsules - No More Creaking Joints
I just wanted you to know that your products have given our Border Collie, Lacey, extra years with us. Three years ago she was diagnosed with a bad left hip and a spur on her back right knee. She could hardly walk, and would often collapse when trying to climb up the stairs. The vet didn't think surgery would be a good option for her. After a short and miserable time on medications, we took a neighbor's advice and put her on Fresh Factors and Joint Health Chewables instead. What a rapid improvement she made! At 14 and a half , she is still sassy and in charge, bossing around our seven month old Border Collie, Boudicca, who is also taking the supplements. Your products have greatly improved Lacey's life, and I recommend them to everyone!
My husband, Al, and I take the Joint Health Capsules, as we are starting to get those creaking joints. They have helped us keep going as we have been building a house ourselves the past two years.
Thank you, Springtime!

"I don't have to take any other pain meds..."
The Cartilage Concentrate and the Joint Health Capsules are keeping me off pain meds. Due to kidney damage from long term use of anti-inflammatories (I've had two back surgeries) the only thing offered for my pain is narcotics. Since using Springtime products I don't have to take any other pain meds and my kidney functions are continuing to improve.
Thank you, Springtime!

Linda’s not “creaking” anymore!
"I've been walking four miles a day…"
I've been using Joint Health Capsules for myself. I soon found out I don't make the old person's creaking noise getting into the cart because I'm not so stiff in the joints. I've been walking four miles a day with my hubby and out-striding his steps.
I also use Joint Health Chewables for dogs on my 17 year old cat. She had a urinary tract problem along with a joint problem in her front leg. She is overweight and we are working on that. The vet said to get her on the joint (glucosamine and chondroitin) tabs because it would help both the urinary problem and leg. And she loves the taste of Joint Health Chewables. After two weeks, I can see the results already. It's made her a happier kitty. I can't wait to try other products from Springtime to make life even better!

"...no more creaking joints..."
Thank you so much for your Buy 2 Get One Free Offers and the Free Bonus system. Sometimes when people are on a budget we buy for our animals and neglect ourselves. Your special offers allow me to get my husband, Ray, his Joint Health Capsules and keep my allergy prone equine, Manny, on his daily regimen of Spirulina Tablets. Now, no more creaking joints on my husband and no more hives on the horse!

"...wonderful results with his knees."
My husband uses Joint Health Capsules and has had wonderful results with his knees. Also, our precious Golden Retriever, Noel, whom was featured in one of your books a few years ago, had good luck with Fresh Factors.
Sadly, Noel has since passed on

"...my joints were no longer bothering me."
Two or three weeks ago I realized that I was reaching the end of my supply of chondroitin sulfate capsules after taking them for, I think, twelve years. I was prompted to do so by my Tae Kwon Do teacher who had seen what chondroitin sulfate did for one of her elderly horses. She took it herself after seeing the horses' enormous improvement. I followed her example and the pain in my ankles, prompted by walking on Maine's rocky beaches that summer, gradually died away and my joints were no longer bothering me.
I stopped recently because, at 87 years, I was taking a dizzying number of pills for so many things and I'd had no joint pain in years. When I suddenly felt a pain in my knee, I realized how foolish I'd been to abandon them. I started them again immediately and will never abandon them again.
Within two weeks of resuming the Joint Health Capsules, I was restored to my former comfort.
Yours very sincerely,
Janie C. Ericsson, Virginia
