■ What is Chonfroitin Sulfate ?

Chondroitin sulfate is a kind of acidic mucopolysaccharide present in the substrate part of the connective tissue that connects cells together.
It is present in the connective tissue such as cartilage, bone, tendon, cornea, lens, blood vessel, skin in a state bound to protein or in free form.
Chondroitin sulfate is a sticky substance that can gel a large amount of water, give water retention, viscosity and lubricity to cartilage and human body fluids.
Chondroitin sulfate is made every day in the body, but synthetic ability disappears with age, giving various bad effects to the body.
Therefore, it is said that it is preferable to take it positively from food.


■ Improving Symptoms of Eyestrain

We conducted a 4-week open trial on 10 subjects from 30 to 40 years old and conducted a VAS questionnaire survey on subjective symptoms of chronic eyestrain.
As a result of the test, significant improvement is observed with chondroitin sulfate derived from salmon.
From this, it is considered that the chondroitin sulfate has a high improvement effect on chronic eyestrain.


■ Decreasing Body Fat Mass

ICR female mice are fed normal diet, high fat diet and high
fat diet with chondroitin sulfate in each group for 8 weeks, and their fat tissue weight is measured.
As a result of the test, a significant decrease is observed with chondroitin sulfate 7% and 13% group. This suggests that chondroitin sulfate has an antiobesity effect.
