For elderly people and sportsmen, it is important to maintain a good quality of the cartilage. In that way, discomfort can be avoided and a good mobility maintained. The most sensible joints are those of the knees, the hips, the hands but also these of the shoulders and the spine.
The intake of Biocondil® helps to preserve the joints suppleness , thus have an effect on your mobility and your capacity to fulfill the daily activities.
Cartilage contains important amounts of glucosamine which is an aminosaccharide, a basic substance required in the construction and regeneration of cartilage. It acts in the synthesis of collagen, a rigid matrix that provides the structure of cartilage. Chondroitin sulphate is an essential component in the maintenance of joint structure and function. It is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan in the body.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are two natural substances that are necessary for cartilage construction. They help to keep healthy joints. The GAIT study (Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial*) confirms the influence of a glucosamine HCl and chondroitin supply on the joints.
EACH GLUCOSAMINE IS DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER!
The glucosamine HCl in Biocondil® is selected to be equivalent to that used for international studies (for example the GAIT-trial). In comparison with glucosamine sulphate, glucosamine HCl contains more active substance: glucosamine (C6H12N05).
Biocondil® does not contain any salt (NaCl or KCl),
