Glucosamine plays a significant role in cartilage metabolism. It stimulates cartilage cells (chondrocytes) to synthesize proteoglycans (the basic building blocks of cartilage) and is the main substrate for their formation. Glucosamine is actively accepted by the cartilage. The administration of glucosamine slows the development of already degenerative cartilage changes.
Chondroitin sulfate is an important part of articular cartilage. It binds large amounts of water to hydrate the cartilage, promote the formation of proteoglycans and reduce collagenolytic activity. Chondroitin administration results in slowing destructive cartilage changes, moderate joint pain, improves mobility, and moderate and inflammation of the joint.
MSM substance containing organically bound sulfur, which acts on strengthening the ligaments and tendons, suppressing inflammation and pain and regenerating and relaxing the muscles. It also has strong antioxidant and other positive effects and is a unique source of sulfur compounds that positively affect the body, especially in damaged articular cartilage.
Hyaluronic acid is mainly found in connective tissues, where it forms a major component of the articular synovial fluid. The higher the concentration of acid, the better the viscoelastic properties of cartilage and their better nutrition. Its administration normalizes the properties of the articular synovial fluid, acts against degeneration of the cartilage and restores its original properties.
Collagen II. type is the major protein of articular elastic cartilage, providing its strength, elasticity and durability. Collagen contained in ALAVIS ™ 5 is hydrolysed, meaning that it is enzymatically digested into smaller particles that are better absorbed in the digestive tract and are therefore much better utilized to build and repair damaged cartilage. Lack of collagen in the joint and cartilage leads to movement disorders and gradual degenerative changes. Collagen provides for strength and flexibility of connective tissues.
Vitamin C is needed for the metabolism of amino acids, especially the amino acids hydroxylysine and hydroxyproline, which are very important for the synthesis of collagen. Vitamin C also plays an indispensable role in the development of bones and cartilage. Deficiency of vitamin C results in less collagen strength of the collagen fibers not only in the cartilage but also in the ligaments and tendons. Vitamin C further promotes iron uptake and promotes white blood cell production, which plays a significant role in immunity, and protects cells of the body by its antioxidant action.
