PROTECTIVE AGENTS

Chondro describes cartilage while protective means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain like Manchesterback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable. In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned. More specifically in one study, glucosamine exhibited a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated with cartilage metabolism rose.

NUTRITIONAL AGENTS

The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to slow its progression, ease its pain, and improve any reduced function.
