Chondroitin sulfate is a more complicated substance, many people don't understand it. Let me give you a brief introduction.

Chondroitin sulfate is actually a type of glycosaminoglycan linked to protein to form proteoglycan. It is generally distributed on the extracellular matrix and cell surface of animal tissues. The sugar chain is composed of alternating glucuronic acid and N-acetylgalactosamine (also known as N-acetylgalactosamine) disaccharide units through a sugar-like linking area Linked to the serine residue of the core protein.

The existence of chondroitin sulfate is very common, except for plants, almost all living things have this substance, it plays a great physiological function. Although the main chain structure of polysaccharides is not complicated, it presents a high degree of inhomogeneity in terms of the degree of sulfation, sulfate groups and the distribution of the two differences into the chain of isomerized uronic acid. The fine structure of chondroitin sulfate determines the specificity of function and the interaction with a variety of protein molecules.

There are still many clinical applications of chondroitin sulfate. Medical scientists have conducted a large number of clinical trials on it and finally reached a conclusion. Chondroitin sulfate can play a great role in treating neuralgia, neuropathic migraine, arthralgia, arthritis, scapular joint pain, and pain after abdominal surgery.
