Our Members Asked:
I have to be careful about my sodium intake. Could my glucosamine and chondroitin supplement contain hidden sodium?
Yes, some, but not all, forms of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate include sodium salt to help stabilize these compounds. This can represent a significant amount of sodium: 1,200 mg of chondroitin sulfate may include over 100 mg of sodium. Labels are not always clear about this. However, certain forms of glucosamine and chondroitin don’t contain salt. In fact, one of these provides nearly 200 mg of calcium per day instead of salt.
