Joint‑Tissu is a combination blend of three very well known cartilage protective agents. These three substances have been shown to assist in the repair and good health of the cartilage and joints. As of yet, there are no structure-modifying drugs that are able to alter the joint structure favourably, preventing the progression of osteoarthritis.
Glucosamine sulfate is an amino sugar required for the production of connective tissue. Glucosamine sulfate is a constituent of glucosaminoglycans in cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. It has the potential to promote pharmacological actions, in particular cartilage and joint tissues. It is obtained from the shells of crustaceans. Glucosamine sulfate stimulates the growth of cartilage components for adequate joint function and also stimulates joint repair. Glucosamine sulfate plays an important role in the formation of nails, skin, tendons, bones, and ligaments. Multiple short-term studies have demonstrated a significant symptom-improving effect of glucosamine sulfate as well as its safety.
Chondroitin sulfate consists of repeating chains of molecules called glycosaminoglycans. Extracted from beef, it is one of the most important components of cartilage, bones, and tendons. It plays a major role in the repair of joint and cartilage tissue. It provides structure and holds water as well as nutrients. One important property of chondroitin is that it allows other molecules (nutrients) to move through cartilage; this is especially important, as the blood supply to cartilage is particularly poor. If nutrients cannot get to the damaged area, then healing is unlikely to happen.
Providing glucosamine speeds up the repair and renewal of damaged or worn articulating cartilage, while chondroitin helps to neutralise the destructive enzymes and improve the quality of the synovial fluid.
The skeleton of sharks is almost entirely comprised of cartilage. Shark cartilage is rich in collagen, sulphur, protein, calcium, chondroitin, glycosaminoglycans (glucosamine-like compounds), and mucopolysaccharides. Glycosaminoglycans and mucopolysaccharides have both been described as natural anti-inflammatory agents. There are many components of shark cartilage that are known to exert beneficial effects on bone and joint health.
Studies have confirmed the beneficial effects of these three components in the repair of joints and cartilage. They also prevent damage to connective tissue and are considered of benefit to people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Joint‑Tissu reduces inflammation and relieves pain.
