STATE OF THE ART
Mythocondro® is the first Non-Animal Chondroitin Sulfate (CS) obtained through a fermentation-based manufacturing process providing a reliable and reproducible source of product. Mythocondro® solves any concerns related to the production origin, the possible presence of transmissible infective agents, the contaminations and adulterations typical of animal-derived raw materials and promises to completely change the global CS industry.
- Produced by fermentative process: non-animal production
- High purity and quality profile guaranteed by controlled, reliable and reproducible controlled process
- Very low protein content and a substantial absence of unusually sulfated and oversulfated disaccharides
- Demonstrated biological activity and established safety with published results Easy handling and storage. Low molecular weight and enhanced bioavailability
ANIMAL CS CONCERNS
Animal chondroitin sulfate is totally derived from animal sources. Animal CS generally relies on bovine, porcine, chicken or cartilaginous fish such as sharks and raja by-products, in particular cartilage, as raw material. A mix of all these sources is possible producing a CS final product having mixed characteristics and low efficacy.
Chondroitin Sulfate is extracted from cartilaginous feedstocks using organic solvents, with long purification processes that may cause chemical degradation/desulfation and loss of activity along with an uncontrolled and unreliable supply chain of CS raw materials.
