|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).*

An Anti-Aging Diet with the Powerful Benefits of Raw Food
Feeding Springtime chewables and powder products is easy!
Springtime customers love their pets. Many have developed their own raw and/or home cooked feeding programs for their dogs. Unfortunately, most of us do not have the time to do this. Below is a simple feeding program that provides the best of a raw food diet without the extra work.
- Measure out a high quality kibble.
- Measure out appropriate helpings of Springtime products.
- Measure out a small amount of high grade canned dog food.
- Stir in enough lukewarm water to make a delicious gravy.
- Mix well and serve.
Longevity - most powerful single product.
Tips on Easy Feeding
Most dogs thankfully accept Springtime chewables as treats, but even the pickiest of eaters can be taught to accept them with a little bribery!
Breaking tablets into quarters and mixing with favorite canned/moist food is extremely helpful. Also, meals can be split into twice a day feedings if desired.
A few examples of foods that can be used as temporary taste enhancements until the supplements are readily eaten.
Some people rotate canned dog food flavors to keep up interest.
Springtime's concentrated formulas can provide raw food benefits with safety and convenience.
7-year-old Brutus models a bowtie.
"He is happy and jumping around like he's a pup!'
My husband and I adopted Brutus from our local shelter two years ago, and he will be seven-years-old in May. Last year he was having a difficult time moving around and getting onto the couch. I remembered giving my other two dogs Joint Health Chewables from Springtime, and how helpful it was for them. And, sure enough, Joint Health Chewables worked for Brutus!
Brutus had been placed on meds for a short time, but after doing research, I became concerned about unnecessary health problems. But now, Brutus is going strong on Joint Health Chewables for nearly a year now. He is happy and jumping around like he's a pup! I just wanted to thank you.

10 Year Old Golden - No More Problems with Stairs
I have a Golden Retriever who is almost 10. I got the Joint Health Chewables as a freebie. My son has commented to me how he hasn't seen her so spunky in years. I have steps in my home and she has no problem with them. Some days she moves a little slow, but some days she's chasing her tail like a puppy.
I'm really pleased with the Joint Health Chewables and the quality of life it has given my pretty girl, Saya, again. Thank you!

Adelyn, Aaron's daughter, and her new best buddy, Jonah, hang out on a sunny day.
"Joint Health Chewables put him back on all fours..."
My Aussie mix, was tripedal two winters in a row. Joint Health Chewables put him back on all fours for the next six years of his life with not so much as a limp! We have new puppy now named Jonah. Springtime's products have truly enhanced the enjoyment of pet companionship because it has proven to extend the life and happiness of each pet I have owned.

Beautiful, beloved Hilda.
I wanted to write to you and thank you for the years of pain free relief your product, Joint Health Chewables, had given my beloved German Shepherd Hilda. Hilda developed hip and arthritis issues around the age of two years old. After much research, I came across your web site and read all the wonderful testimonials about this product.
I ordered Hilda some of the Joint Health Chewables and saw a profound change with her within only two weeks' time. She was able to run again, climb stairs (she didn't even want to go up one step before starting her on the product), enjoyed swimming daily, and lived a good, pain free life.
I kept Hilda on the Joint Health Chewables for the next seven years. Unfortunately, she developed Degenerative Myelopathy, and it progressed rapidly, until nothing more could be done. I truly believe that Hilda would not have had the quality of life she did, without your product.
The Joint Health Chewables made such a miraculous difference in Hilda and I have recommended your products to every pet owner I know.
I don't know how to thank you.
