Degenerative syndrome which primarily affects articular cartilage leading to its gradual destruction, but involves all joint tissues as well, including synovium, joint capsule, periarticular muscles, ten dons and ligaments.

- Glucosamine sulfate:
A disease modifying agent which is capable of inhibiting the deterioration of cartilage and assists in maintaining the balance between anabolic and catabolic processes of the cartilage. Exists in many tissues and secretions of human body, and is essential in biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans necessary for the production of proteoglycans (structural matrix) in joints. 90% of glucosamine on glucosamine sulfate is orally absorbed.
- Chondroitin Sulfate:
An important component of the extracellular matrix of cartilage.Exists in cartilage, connective tissues, bones, walls of blood vessels and syno- vial fluid. Increases the concentration of glycosaminoglycans and improves the viscosity of synovial fluid. Increases the levels of hyaluronic acid and other proteoglycans in the articular cartilage. Decreases the collagenolytic activity (phospholipase A2 and N-acetylglucos- aminidase).Decreases inflammation.
Up to 70% of chondroitin is absorbed.
An organic sulfur compound and a natural source of sulfur. Naturally exists in human body. One of its metabolic functions is being a sulfur source to build connective tissues. Sulfur is present in the joints with particularly high concentrations which participates in the production of chondroitin sulfate, and glucosamine.
- Hyaluronic acid:
A glycosaminoglycan and a physiological constituent of the extracellular matrix of connective tissues and synovial fluid. Responsible for the viscoelastic and lubricating properties of synovial fluid.
- Marine collagen:
A structural protein found in bones, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues in large quantities. A fundamentally important protein in the formation of extracellular matrix of connective tissues.
An essential element for structural integrity and development of connective tissues. Mainly present in bones, tendons and muscles. Usually attached to glycoproteins in tissues. Acts by chemical stabilization of the glycosaminoglycan network.
A Flavonoid (Flavanol) with great antioxidant activity. Appears commonly in glucoside form. Inhibits or eliminates the free radicals which are the main causes of inflammation and degeneration processes and are thought to play a role in OA.
