Description: This is cartilage extracted from cow trachea. This connective tissue contains collagen, mucopolysaccharides, calcium, sulfur, and proteins. It is mainly used for arthritis, although some doctors prescribe it for cancer, as it is thought to inhibit tumor growth. More research is needed to confirm any benefit for these uses.


  • Arthritis
  • Cancer

Precautions: There are no good data on precautions or concerns with supplementing bovine cartilage.

Dosage: A typical dosage is 1,000 to 3,000 mg three times daily.
