That’s right… plant-based Chondroitin!
Now, you’re probably asking yourself, how is that possible? And we are excited to tell you!
We engaged Nottingham Trent University (NTU) in the UK to compare the mucopolysaccharide structure of Phytodroitin™ with Chondroitin Sulphate of Bovine, Shark and Avian origins, together with a standard Chondroitin Sulphate (bovine trachea origin) obtained from Sigma Aldrich.
NTU used Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, sampling of the powders being performed using the attenuated total reflectance technique:
Phytodroitin™ proved to be almost identical in mucopolysaccharide structure to Chondroitin Sulphate of Shark origin, and particularly Chondroitin of Avian origin. Chondroitin Sulphate of Bovine origin showed a slightly different spectrum to the other sources but was consistent with the standard (no surprise, as it was also of bovine origin).
Phytodroitin™ comes in an easy to consume powder form, which is the perfect addition to any nutritional supplement product (recommended daily allowance is 400mg).
Phytodroitin™ is proven to have various benefits in a wide range of nutritional supplement products. These include:
- Sports performance products
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis treatments
- General Bone & joint health formulas
- Vegan & Vegetarian products
- Supplements targeting older consumers
We use only purpose-grown botanical ingredients to ensure sustainability and provide adequate quality and purity during the creation of this product.
