Degenerative-dystrophic changes in joints and spine

With degenerative joint diseases is slow and gradual violation of metabolic processes in the cartilage of the joints and intervertebral discs, leading to the development of osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis - take care of the joints healthy longer  Osteoarthritis - take care of the joints healthy longer

Basic metabolic disorders Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
   in these tissues associated with the violation of education in their chondroitin - polysaccharide of animal tissue, which is part of proteoglycans. The latter together with collagen fibers are the basis of cartilage.

The lack of the required number of hondronitina leads to a decrease in amortization abilities of these tissues: reduces their elasticity, strength, ability to withstand mechanical stress. Joint cartilage gradually decreases in volume, and degrades. These diseases are called osteoarthrosis.

The intervertebral discs are flattened, their middle (elastic core) is destroyed, resulting in the stepping disc beyond the spine and compression of spinal nerves (intervertebral hernia). Gradually emerging changes in the intervertebral discs, as well as cartilage and bone of the vertebrae called osteochondrosis.


How does the human body hondroksid

The main active ingredient is chondroitin sulfate Chondroxide that slowly enters the cartilage and gradually replaces the lack of endogenous (produced by the body) chondroitin. The process is very slow, so you need to use chondroitin long.

Chondroxide issued Russian pharmaceutical company Nizhpharm in tablet form for oral administration and dosage forms for external use - gel and ointment.

But hondroksid not only acts on metabolism. Its main active ingredient also has a light analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties are enhanced excipients forming part hondroksid, particularly dimethylsulfoxide, which also possesses some antibacterial properties.

Chondroxide also helps reduce clotting ability of blood and potentiates (increases) the effect of drugs with similar properties. Application hondroksid can significantly reduce the dose of analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs which, in most cases, have many side effects.
