Glucosamine Compound tablet is formulated to meet the natural challenge of arthritis, its main components glucosamine sulphate and chondroitin sulphate are combined in a therapeutic dosage for optimal conditions to reconstruct the cartilage matrix, while ascorbic acid works by mopping free oxygen radicals thus aiding in the prevention of cartilage damage.
Glucosamine sulphate, an endogenous amino-saccharide made up of glucose and an amino acid, glutamine, is an important part of the mucopoly-saccharides which provide structure to the bone, cartilage, skin and other tissues. It helps the manufacture of collagen which is the protein part of the fibrous substance that holds joints together, by improving joint function, it helps reduce the pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Chondroitin sulphate is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan localized in cartilage, bone and heart valves, it is derived from the sulphated polymer D-glucuronic acid beta (1-3) D-N- acetyl galactosamine
beta (1-4), chondroitin facilitates lubrication in the joints resulting in freedom of movement, it sweeps nutrients into the cartilage and the fluid acts like a spongy shock absorber.
Glucosamine & chondroitin work synergistically to help stimulate cartilage production and control cartilage damaging enzymes and therefore help maintain an equilibrium between cartilage catabolic and anabolic processes, Glucosamine Compound tablet is thus effective in treating the disease at the cellular level.
