Alflutop - the original drug, which is made from natural products. Analogues of this drug is not. But there is a fairly large group of medicines called hondroprotektorami and helps to restore cartilage.
What a chondroprotectors
"Breakage" works the joints most often occurs because of the cartilage that covers the joint surfaces and a shock absorber. Cartilage tissue is a type of connective tissue, which consists of cellular elements and extracellular substances. It intercellular substance has a resilient cushioning properties that protect the bones from injury. It consists of proteoglycans glucosamine and chondroitin, which gives cartilage elasticity. Update cartilage is due to intra-articular (synovial) fluid, which contains all the necessary material.
In degenerative processes in joints and blood circulation reduces the amount of synovial fluid, resulting in cartilage degenerates and loses its elastic properties, crack. Exposed bone under constant injuries begin to grow - formed osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis.
Today, there is a large group of drugs that restore the elastic properties of cartilage - chondroprotectors.
For drugs in this group include drugs containing proteoglycans, stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans and combined funds.
Alflutop - a drug of natural origin, which contains extracts from four species of small sea fish.
Alflutop contains proteoglycans, including hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, keratan sulfate. In addition, it contains the essential amino acids, macro- and microelements. He has a positive effect on metabolism
Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
in the cartilage and anti-inflammatory effect.
Alflutop chondroprotective effect is to suppress the action of the enzyme hyaluronidase and other enzymes that are involved in the destruction of the intercellular substance of the cartilage. In addition, it promotes the formation of collagen and hyaluronic acid (a protein that is part of the cartilage).
Alflutop: drug for the treatment of joints
when degenerative diseases of joints and spine - osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis. Analogues Alflutop, but there are other equally effective group chondroprotectors.
Chondroprotectors, which include glucosamine
Glucosamine is a biologically active substance proteinglikanom affecting metabolism in the cartilage. It compensates for the natural deficiency glucosamine stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans and hyaluronic acid in periarticular fluid, and restores the elastic properties of the protective cartilage reduces joint pain
Joint pain - how to understand what is going on?
Indications for use of preparations containing glucosamine, such as for Alflutop. For drugs in this group include Don (Rottfarm, Ireland), which is available as ampoules for injection and bags for solution for oral administration.
Chondroprotectors, which include chondroitin sulfate
Chondroitin sulfate - is proteinglikan that affects calcium and phosphorus metabolism in cartilage, slow changes in the bone tissue, reduces the loss of bone calcium, it accelerates the recovery process pauses cartilage degeneration. It prevents compression of cartilage acts as a lubricant of the articular surfaces. When applied topically to slow the progression of osteoarthritis. Normalizes metabolism and stimulates cartilage regeneration.
For drugs in this group include structum (Pierre Fabre, France), which is available in capsules for oral administration and has hondrostimuliruyuschimi and anti-inflammatory properties, slows the degeneration of cartilage. It also improves mobility and reduces pain in degenerative diseases of joints and spine.
Indications for use structum are the same as in Alflutop.
Chondroprotectors, composed of glucosamine and chondroitin
There are also a number of chondroprotective, which contain glucosamine, and chondroitin. These drugs are terafleks
Teraflex - regulates the metabolism of the cartilage
(Sagmel, USA) hondrafleks (Minskinterfaks, Belarus), arthritis (Unipharm, USA).
All of these drugs have the ability to stimulate the regeneration of cartilage tissue, prevents processes of destruction of articular cartilage, helps to restore mobility in the joints. It is used for osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis.
Thus, despite the fact that no Alflutop analogs than the drug has to be replaced.
