Glucosamine Hcl enhances the level of glycosaminoglycans in the joint. These are the building blocks in the cartilage matrix. Glucosamine Hcl will increase the Hyaluronate content in the legs. Hyaluronate is a fundamental component of Synovial Fluid- the joint lubricant.
Chondroitin Sulphate is a natural "water magnet" in the joint. Adequate amounts of Chondroitin Sulphate enable the joints to withstand constant compression and concussion. Chondroitin Sulphate also inhibits the "cartilage chewing" enzymes that are present in damaged joints.
MSM is a source of bioavailable sulphur. Sulphur is needed for the synthesis of connective tissue. Therefore MSM can function as a co-factor of Glucosamine Hcl and Chondroitin Sulphate in the repair of the cartilage matrix. MSM is also associated with the relief of inflammatory conditions.
