Chondroitin sulfate has structuro-modulator (it acts on cartilage structure) and anti-inflammatory effects. It protects joint cartilage and participates in its reconstitution. Used in association with (NAG), it is the kingpin in nutritional arthrosis treatment.
Our chondroitin sulfate is of marine origin and pharmaceutical grade. It is balanced in isoforms 4 and 6, and it has been concentrated to contain 95% of the active substance. Nearly all the food complements said to be "rich in chondroitin sulfate" never mention their bovine origin nor the percentage they contain of the active substance, because this varies between 25 and 40% Smart City's chondroitin sulfate contains the best raw materials available on the market.
"In itself, each of these two products are effective, but, together they can fulfil the expectations of millions of suffering patients: Chondroitin and Glucosamine are effective there where other products and surgery fail." "To be qualified as chondroprotective (i.e., which protects the cartilage), a substance must:
a) Favour macro-molecular synthesis of cartilage cells (glycosaminoglucanes, proteoglycanes, collagen, proteins, ARN and DNA),
b) Favour hyaluronic acid synthesis (the substance which gives the synovial liquid its viscosity and enables lubrication between the synovial membrane and cartilage).
c) Inhibit the enzymes responsible for macro-molecular damage of the cartilage cells.
d) Reinforce the mobility of clots, fibrins, lipids and cholesterol deposits in the articular inter-spaces and the blood vessels of the joints.
e) Relieve articular pain.
f) Reduce synovial inflammation.
Alone, no product or nutritional supplement can do all this....Clinical studies have shown that Glucosamine enables to attain objectives a), b), e) and f), whereas Chondroitin Sulphate enables to attain objectives a), c), d), e) and f). It is, therefore, because their effects overlap, that their association is so effective against arthrosis."
