Like glucosamine, chondroitin naturally occurs in people as a component of cartilage.1 It helps keep joints healthy by absorbing fluid into the connective tissue, and blocking enzymes that break down cartilage.4 This dietary supplement is commonly taken in conjunction with glucosamine and may help support joint flexibility.4
