Bondro tablet is a balanced combination of two leading natural supplements of healthy cartilage - Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar of cartilage that provides the basic raw material needed by the body to manufacture joint cartilage. Chondroitin is another naturally occurring mucopolysaccharide of cartilage that stimulates cartilage production, inhibits cartilage destroying enzymes, draws fluid to the cells and helps to lubricate the joints. They work synergistically together to stimulate the production and regeneration of connective tissues (e. g. cartilage, bone, tendon, skin, mucous membrane, blood vessels etc.).

It is also beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis, sport injuries, migraine, different skin problems (e.g. psoriasis), vascular complications (e.g. atherosclerosis), kidney stones and inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. ulcerative colitis, leaky gut syndrome).
