Is chondroitin sulfate absorbed from the digestive tract?

Although chondroitin sulfate is a larger molecule than glucosamine, radio-labelled studies have shown, like glucosamine, that it is absorbed from the intestinal tract. Once chondroitin sulfate enters the blood stream it has been traced to the joint tissues, where it acts to slow cartilage breakdown.
