is made from interacting glucose with the amine glutamine. Chemically,
it is known as 2-amino-2-deoxyglucose. Glucosamine sulfates are
sulfur-containing glucosamine compounds.
Chondroitin is a very large molecule with a molecular weight of 5,500 to 6,000. Studies of isolated chondroitin reveal that this compound is a glycosaminoglycan (a mucopolysaccharide). It has a repeating chain, N-acetyl-chondrosine. Each disaccharide unit contains a sulfate group.
Chondroitin supplements come from either natural sources, such as shark or bovine cartilage, or can be manufactured in the lab.
