Glucosamine: ingredient of Evergreen

Chondoprotective Agents: chondrocytes

Glucosamine: chondoprotective agentsIn recent times, scientific research has focused its attention on the examination of active ingredients that re-
strict the development of the osteoarthritis and stimulate repair of damaged cartilage: these substances are chondroprotective agents. The distin-
ctive elements that should possess are:

  • Encouraging the chondrocytes to produce collagen and proteoglycans
  • Prevent cartilage degradation (for example by inhibition of protein compounds)

The compounds that have shown to be equipped with such qualities are those existing in nature in cartilage, among which the most significant ones are the hyaluronic acid, the glucosamine and the chondroitin sulphate.

Chondoprotective agents: Hyaluronic Acid

It is produced by chains of glucuronic acid and N-acetylglu-
cosamine. It has the function of lubricator in the synovial fluid. When used orally, the absorption level enteric is limited: for this reason is often used in the case of intra-articular injections.

Chondoprotective Agents: Glucosamine

Structural formula of D-Gucosamine SulphateIt is an amino-mono-sac-
charide that chondrocytes synthesize from glucose and who plays the role of precursor for the glycosa-
minoglycans. In situations of osteoarthritis, an additi-
onal contribution of gluco-
samine gives to the chondrocytes much raw material, will balance the gap between cartilage degradation and restructuring, promoting faster recovery.

Some research has provided tests of a certain result anti-inflammatory presumably due to an arrest of free radicals. Consequently to assimilation orally, the entity of glucosami-
ne available to the body is equal to approximately 45% of the ingested: the expulsion occurs mainly in the urine. It has been documented that the intake of salts of glucosamine (glucosamine hydrochloride and glucosamine sulfate) may provide beneficial results for the treatment of osteoarthritis. In addition, there isn’t evidence of any harm, nor collateral consequences.
