·   Glucosamine is an important building block for cartilage. It helps cartilage to act as a shock absorber.

·   Chondroitin helps maintain synovial fluid viscosity to give extra joint protection and is also an important building block for cartilage.

·    Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant required to produce collagen. Collagen is the main supportive protein in cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue.

·    Zinc is important for healing in the body and is also required for the synthesis of collagen.

·     Boswellia is a plant extract which plays an important role in maintaining smooth and comfortable joint movement. It is used to support conventional drugs but does not cause the damage to cartilage that many conventional anti-inflammatories do.
