Teraflex - a drug that restores the cartilage. It is prescribed for the prevention of fracture stimulation and recovery of the articular cartilage, as well as to improve the mobility of joints. Teraflex also has a slight anti-inflammatory effect.
The mechanism of action Teraflex
Teraflex refers to a group of drugs that regulate metabolic processes in the cartilage. Active ingredient of this drug is a sustainable combination of glucosamine and chondroitin.
It is produced in the form of capsules (terafleks and terafleks Advance) and cream (terafleks M). The composition includes terafleks capsules 500 mg of glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate 400 mg.

Glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate, are involved in the formation of connective tissue, which consists of cartilage. These two active substances prevent the destruction of the cartilage that covers the surface of the joint and prevents bone destruction. Thus glucosamine enhances the production bases cartilage and provides protection against any toxic damage, including the toxic substances generated as a result of metabolism. Glucosamine has also a slight inflammatory effect and protects the cartilage from the destructive action of certain other drugs that may be useful in the treatment of joints (e.g., nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or glucocorticoids).
Chondroitin - this additional material to form the basis of cartilage. It activates the formation of substances in the body that make up the cartilage (gialuronona, proteoglycans, collagen) and prevents the destruction of the formed gialuronona. In addition, it supports normal viscosity of synovial fluid, stimulates recovery of cartilage and inhibits the action of enzymes that break down cartilage. Chondroitin also reduces the unpleasant manifestations of metabolic and degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis), and reduces the need for the appointment of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
All these features allow you to assign terafleks chronic degenerative and inflammatory joints.
Advanced Teraflex and terafleks M
The composition of capsules terafleks Advanced includes smaller dosage glucosamine and chondroitin, as well as ibuprofen, which belongs to the group of NSAIDs. In this regard, the preparation has greater anti-inflammatory and regenerating action smaller.
Cream terafleks M other than glucosamine and chondroitin is composed of camphor, and peppermint oil. Camphor while when applied on the skin over the affected joint irritates nerve located therein okrnchaniya (receptors) that leads to reflex extension located in the skin and subcutaneous tissue of blood vessels, improves blood supply to tissues and exerts some antiseptic action. Peppermint oil on the skin has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, distracting and some antiseptic.
