LIDTKE Medical requested samples of chondroitin from different producers, and using advanced differentiation techniques we separated out the producers of fake chondroitin from those that produce genuine chondroitin. We make sure to only use suppliers that consistently deliver the real thing.
Silica is one of several essential elements that complements chondroitin sulfate.* Silica is responsible for building molecular bridges in connective tissue that give your ligaments and tendons form and tensile strength.*
