A joint is where two bones come together and the end of these bones are covered with protective tissue called cartilage. In osteoarthritis, this protective cartilage gradually starts breaking down, causing the bone within the joint to rub together. This can cause pain, stiffness, and other symptoms. Some of the reasons behind osteoarthritis are torn cartilage, dislocated joints, ligament injuries, joint malformation, obesity, and poor posture. It mostly occurs in the weight-bearing joints of the hips, knees, and spine. Majorly affecting regions are fingers, thumb, neck, and large toe. OA is a gradually intensifying disease, which means that symptoms worsen over time. There is no cure for OA, but the treatment can help manage pain and swelling and keep a person mobile and active. Glucosamine sulfate and Chondroitin sulfate are naturally occurring substances found in the connective tissues of the body, including the cartilage that covers the ends of bones in the joints.
Glucosamine sulfate functions as the primary building block for proteoglycans, large molecules in cartilage that give it viscoelastic properties. When taken orally, glucosamine sulfate is absorbed readily into the system and can be traced into cartilage after consumption. This hydrochloride form of glucosamine is more available for absorption into the body; therefore, a smaller dose delivers an equivalent amount in the system.
Chondroitin sulfate is a larger molecule also found in cartilage. Some research suggests that chondroitin sulfate may slow cartilage breakdown linked with osteoarthritis and even stimulate cartilage growth.
Piper nigrum (Black pepper extract) has the active compound Piperine, which is helpful to relieve digestion problem, nausea, headache and has anti-inflammatory properties. Black pepper extract also enhances the absorption of the active ingredients.
