|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.
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.

"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.

Shiloh is a completely different dog thanks to Joint Health Chewables.
"It just made a miraculous difference in her!"
Thank you for the terrific product Joint Health Chewables! Shilo, my Rottweiler, is only a little over a year old [and has hip problems], but before we tried this product, I thought we may have to have her put down because she was in so much pain. Everyone who has seen her lately is asking what I did for her! I took your product to my vet and he said yes, it should help her. It just made a miraculous difference in her! She is a completely different dog!

"… great customer service and prompt shipments…"
This is not about one specific product, but about the great customer service and prompt shipment that I always get. I have been ordering from Springtime for quite a while. It started out with Joint Health Chewables for my yellow Lab and J-Flex Concentrate for one of my boarders. It has since grown to a number of different things that I use now. I can't say enough good things about your company. Customer service is always courteous and helpful. Thank you Springtime for being a great company. I look forward to doing more business with you.
