Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are a family of long, complex carbohydrates found in various tissues in the body, including skin, joints and connective tissues. They are known for their ability to retain water, which makes them important for maintaining the hydration and elasticity of these tissues. Some examples of glycosaminoglycans include chondroitin sulphate, hyaluronan and heparin. These are often used as a supplement and treatment for osteoarthritis and other joint-related conditions.

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are a group of long chains of sugars that have many important roles in the body. They are found in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues and are a major component of cartilage, tendons, ligaments and the fluid surrounding joints. Some of the benefits of Glycosaminoglycans include:
 
  • Providing structural support:
Glycosaminoglycans help maintain the shape and integrity of cells and tissues.
 
  • Acting as lubricants:
Glycosaminoglycans, such as hyaluronan, help lubricate joints, reducing friction and wear.
 
  • Act as shock absorbers:
Glycosaminoglycans, such as chondroitin sulfate, help absorb shocks and protect joints from damage.
 
  • Regulate cell growth and repair:
Glycosaminoglycans are involved in regulating cell growth and repair and may play a role in wound healing and tissue regeneration.
 
  • Playing a role in inflammation:
Glycosaminoglycans may modulate inflammation and immune response and may be involved in the pathogenesis of certain inflammatory conditions.
 
  • Potential for use in medical treatments:
Glycosaminoglycans have been investigated for their potential use in medical treatments such as osteoarthritis, wound and tissue healing.
