1. It has same type of Chondroitin as Human

Chondroitin sulfate exists type A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K type.
In human body, it exist the chondroitin sulfate w A and a C type.
The type A in particular decreases rapidly by aging.
It can extract the chondroitin sulfate of the type A from a whale, a cow other than a salmon.
The chondroitin sulfate of MC is a Hybrid type of type A and the C type.

Type Main Disaccharides Unit Origin
A ⊿G1cAβ(1-3)GalNaAc4-O-Sulfate Whale Carttilage, Bovine Cartilage
B ⊿IdoA2-O-Sulfateβ(1-3)Ga1NAc Pork Skin
C ⊿GlcAβ(1-3)GalNaAc6-O-Sulfate Shark Cartilage
D ⊿GlcA2-O-Sulfateβ(1-3)GalNAc4-O-Sulfate Shark Cartilage
E ⊿GlcAβ(1-3)GalNaAc4,6-O-Sulfate Japanese Common Squid Cartilage
K ⊿GlcA3-O-Sulfateβ(1-3)GalNAc HorseShoe Crab Cartilage

2. Evidence

Test for Skin condition Improvement(Skin Elasticity、Wrinkle )
Blood Test(Increasing Chondroitin Sulfate amount in Serum )
Urinalysis(Bone resorption restraint by the NTx level drop

3. Traceability

  1. Natural Japanese salmon origin, We can chase a history.
  2. There is residual test about "a tetracycline-based antibiotic (oxytetracycline chlortetracycline tetracycline), a spiromycin", synthetic antibiotics , a pesticide (475 kinds), PCB, heavy metal, the dioxin.

4. Safety data

LD50, Reverse mutation test

5. Usage

1. Water soluble, you can use any formula such as Tablet, capsule, Jelly, Beverage and so on.

2. Fish origin Mucopolysaccharide.

3. Not only C type of Chondroitin but you can supply A type that will be reduced by age.
