Biologically active food supplement. Artra ® MSM contains high concentrations of glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which in combination show synergism, complementing and enhancing the effects of each other.
With age, the synthesis of glucosamine and chondroitin decreases, and methylsulfonylmethane (a natural source of sulfur) enters the body in negligible amounts. Chondroitin and glucosamine play a crucial role in the restoration of connective tissue, improve the amortization properties of cartilage, and increase joint mobility.
Components of Arthra ® MSM:
- help reduce inflammation and soreness in the joints;
- contribute to increased mobility of the joints;
- contribute to the acceleration of the regeneration of cartilage;
- contribute to the protection of articular cartilage;
- are a source for the formation of cartilage matrix and connective tissue, contributing to their recovery.
Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are involved in the synthesis of connective tissue. Glucosamine is a structural component for the formation (synthesis) of other components of cartilage structures, inhibits the development of degenerative processes in the joints, restores their function. The introduction of exogenous glucosamine enhances the production of cartilage matrix. Chondroitin sodium sulfate serves as an additional substrate for the formation of a healthy cartilage matrix, is part of the synovial (articular) fluid, which provides gliding of the articular surfaces, and also provides nutrition to the cartilage; helps reduce the need for NSAIDs.
Hyaluronic acid is part of the joint fluid, where it acts as a lubricant, reducing friction between the joint surfaces, is part of the cartilage, where it performs a "spring" function (maintains the stability of cartilage tissue and compression), is an important component of synovial fluid, determining its viscoelastic properties , it forms a covering layer on the entire inner surface, which protects the articular cartilage and synovial membrane from mechanical damage, as well as from free radicals and fact s inflammation. On the surface of the mucous membranes, hyaluronic acid forms a thin semi-permeable protective layer, covering the nerve endings and preventing irritation; stimulates the formation of collagen.
Methylsulfonylmethane is a source of sulfur, bioavailable for the body, a component of the proteins that make up all connective tissues. MSM reduces the risk of developing inflammatory processes, accelerates the synthesis of collagen proteins and helps to maintain joints in a healthy state.
