The two main ingredients in Cosamin DS, FCHG49®
glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122® chondroitin sulfate, stimulate
the production of cartilage. In younger, healthier individuals cartilage cells
would normally accomplish this task. However, as one ages, cartilage cells die
off and are not replaced. This starts a cycle of destruction in the cartilage.
There are also enzymes present that degrade cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride
stimulates cartilage production while chondroitin sulfate inhibits enzymes that
break down cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown in clinical trials to
slow the progression of cartilage deterioration as well as reduce joint pain.
Cosamin® DS contains FCHG49®
Glucosamine and TRH122® Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Nutramax
Laboratories® exclusive proprietary researched specifications.
