César DePaço and Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate

Dogs have always been a part of César DePaço’s life. The CEO of Summit Nutritionals International® is a recognized dog-lover, often seen with his own furry four-legged companions. In addition, the entrepreneur is also a big supporter of law enforcement authorities, mainly Police Departments.

This being said, it’s not surprising to know that César DePaço is widely recognized for his philanthropic actions, much of it revolving around donating dogs to K-9 units in different police and public safety departments in the United States and Portugal.

With the creation of Summit Nutritionals International®, César DePaço identified and seized the opportunity to promote animal health through the production of veterinary supplements based on cartilage extracts and chondroitin sulfate.

This idea came to life through Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfatea brand of powdered nutritional supplements with organic chondroitin sulfate. This natural supplement should be included in a regular and healthy diet to help prevent possible joint pain or disease.


Droi-Kon®: A product by Summit Nutritionals International®

Droi-Kon® is the registered trademark of Summit Nutritionals International®, a company founded by César DePaço in 2001 that markets dietary supplements and nutraceuticals.

The multinational is recognized as an industry leader in manufacturing and selling natural products, extracted from the cartilage of various animals that helps combat diseases related to joints and ligament tissues.

Prior to the creation of Summit Nutritionals International® by César DePaço, the manufacture of nutraceutical supplements had a residual representation in the United States when compared to the production in Europe.

As time went on, the growing concern for animal welfare, especially pets, became evident and the demand for preventative veterinary products steadily increased. It was the perfect time to enter the market.

César DePaço seized this opportunity and created his first company dedicated to the production and marketing of natural food supplements that would fill this gap in the North American market.


The success of Summit Nutritionals International® is not only due to the tight quality control of the products marketed, but also the constant innovation and progress that César DePaço continually promotes.


At a time when the world was facing an epidemic, the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), commonly referred to as “mad cow disease”, Summit Nutritionals International® continued its production line using alternative animals, such as pigs, poultry, and even marine animals.

Through these replacements, the entrepreneur ensured the production and delivery of Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate continued throughout the epidemic. To this day, César DePaço and Summit Nutritionals International® guarantee that all products that are still extracted from cattle are 100% BSE free and safe for consumption.

The main ingredient in Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate is, like its name mentions, chondroitin sulfate, a molecule that is a vital part of cartilage. This supplement is recognized worldwide for its regenerative abilities and analgesic effect, a fact that has been supported by numerous quality reports from independent laboratories, both in the United States and Europe.

Summit Nutritionals International® is focused on the production of high-quality supplements that ensure customer satisfaction. Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate is a premium product with proven results and amazing reviews from frequent customers.

This product is commonly used among Police with K9 units, that administer Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate daily, allied to a healthy diet and exercise. This supplement helps prevent cartilage loss and promotes the regrowth of these soft tissues, making Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate the best ally for high-energy needs.


Benefits of using Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate

Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate is a 100% natural, allergen-free supplement that does not require a prescription. It is presented as an odorless and flavorless water-soluble powder, so even the pickiest of the pickiest cannot detect it.

This product should be dissolved in water and administered with food. It’s recommended to use Droi-Kon® Chondroitin Sulfate as a complement to a regular healthy diet so that results are optimized.

It has been scientifically proven by several laboratories that chondroitin sulfate slows the deterioration of cartilage and plays a central role in promoting the creation and preservation of cartilage and ligaments.

This natural extract works by neutralizing destructive enzymes that, over time, erode and destroy cartilage in the body. By controlling these enzymes, the deterioration of cartilage is slowed so that new cartilage can be formed to replace it.
