• Oral administration of bioactive collagen peptides has been shown to be beneficial and safe in patients with arthritis. The collagen provides strength to the cartilage and maintains its elastic properties resulting in flexibility of the joints.
• Vitamin C is critical for normal health of bone and cartilage. In OA, oxidation is a potential cause of cartilage degradation .Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, which prevents cartilage degradation, help form collagen fibres and mucopolysaccharides out of glucosamine in the cartilage tissue.
• Glucosamine is very important for the proper functioning, structure and formation of cartilage. Glucosamine is naturally present in the joint cartilages. As age advances, the level of glucosamine comes down and normal cartilage regeneration reduces .Scientific studies have shown that glucosamine sulphate helps preserve cartilages. Glucosamine produces important glycosaminoglycan in the cartilage substance and thus this help cartilage regeneration and prevents cartilage degeneration. Experiments have shown that glucosamine specifically and significantly prevents breaking of collagen fibers. Current research also has shown that glucosamine can help arrest the progression of established OA by slowing down of cartilage decay.
COLLAGEN PEPTIDE: -.Collagen constitutes about 30% of total mammalianproteins. It is present in every organ. Both primaryand secondary structures of collagen aredistinctly different in comparison to other proteins.It contains large amounts of glycine, proline andvery low quantities of aromatic and sulphuric aminoacids. The characteristic feature of collagen is thepresence of hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine,which very rarely occur in other animal proteins. Collagen is resistant to the action of most nonspecificproteolytic enzymes. It is specifically digestedby tissue and bacterial collagenases.
GLUCOSAMINE:- Glucosamine is a natural chemical compound in your body. But it also comes in the form of a supplement. There are two main types: hydrochloride and sulphate. There are different forms of glucosamine including glucosamine sulphate, glucosamine hydrochloride, and N-acetyl-glucosamine. These different chemicals have some similarities; however, they may not have the same effects when taken as a dietary supplement. Most of the scientific research done on glucosamine has been done on glucosamine sulphate. The information on this page pertains to glucosamine sulphate. For information on the other forms of glucosamine, see the specific pages for each of them.The glucosamine in your body helps keep up the health of your cartilage -- the rubbery tissue that cushions bones at your joints. But as you get older, your levels of this compound begin to drop, which leads to the gradual breakdown of the joint.
• PHARMACOLOGY: - Glucosamine sulphate is a chemical found in the human body. It is used by the body to produce a variety of other chemicals that are involved in building tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the thick fluid that surrounds joints.
• Joints are cushioned by the fluid and cartilage that surround them. In some people with osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin. This results in more joint friction, pain, and stiffness.
• The combination in the sachet helps in formation of collagen fibres which form the ground material for healthy cartilage tissue. It stimulates the regeneration of cartilage tissue, provides strength and maintains the elastic properties of cartilage.
• It helps keeping the cartilage intact, it keeps joints movable, healthy, flexible and helps maintain activity.
