Glucosamineis involved in constructing cartilage. Glucosamine is well absorbed into the body tissue. Glucosamine is like a natural metabolite as an agent capable to provide a protective and regenerative effect in respect of cartilaginous tissues. In the body it is used by chondrocytes as starting material for the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.
Chondroitin is a specific component of cartilage. It accelerates recovery of cartilaginous tissue, slows down the process of degeneration of cartilage and stimulates the regeneration of damaged articular cartilage and intervertebral discs. Prevents compression of the connective tissue and acts as a kind of lubrication of the articular surfaces. It normalizes metabolism in hyaline tissue and joint fluid production. It causes analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.
Collagen is a protein necessary for the synthesis of connective tissue and fibrocartilage. When collagen is insufficient, cartilage loses its elasticity and strength, becomes rough, separates its fibers.
