Overloading due to overweight or sport, but also the normal aging process, leads to wear and tear of the cartilage layer on the joints. The result is pain when walking downhill or gardening in the knees or hips. Both glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate are found in shellfish. In order to maintain joint mobility, a dose is required that can hardly be taken up with nutrition alone.
Glucosamine and chondroitin – natural components of connective tissue, ligaments and articular cartilage – protect your joints and are important for optimum joint mobility. The additional antioxidant vitamins and trace elements contained protect the joint cells from free radicals and support the cartilage metabolism. Current studies show that an addition of vitamins and trace elements brings an additional benefit.
