Food Supplement of Ray Fish Cartilage

Titrated at 15% of chondroitin sulphate and at 9% of glucosamine sulphate, for joint function.

 

Marine Cartilage Extract is a food supplement with ray fish cartilage extract (Leucoraja erinacea), a fish with cartilage structure rich in chondroitin sulphate and glucosamine sulphate.

These substances are often combined in food supplements that have a chondroprotective action because both are structural building blocks of glycosaminoglycans and of other macromolecules that constitute the extracellular matrix of connective tissue.

The presence of calcium and phosphorus in the formula contributes to maintain osteoarticular balance


Active ingredients

Chondroitin sulphate: highly hydrated glycosaminoglycan, jelly-like and viscous, that determines cartilage structure.

Glucosamine Sulphate: constituent of glycosaminoglycans and of proteoglycans present in synovial liquid and in the cartilage matrix.

Benefical effects

  • Joint function

Insights

Already since 1980 multiple controlled clinical trials have evaluated the use of chondroitin sulphate in patients with osteoarthrosis in the knee, dorsal spine, hips and joints of the hands, with significant beneficial effects in symptoms (pain reduction), in function (improved mobility) and reduced need for anti-inflammatory medicines, with a better action than the placebo.

The main function of chondroitin sulphateis to ensure a correct degree of hydration, flexibility, elasticity and impact absorption.

Glucosamine sulphate reduces the activity of collagenase and increases proteoglycan synthesis. This suggests that glucosamine can play an elective role in increasing the availability of synovial fluid and in maintaining joint lubrication.

In 2008 reports were published of studies conducted  by the US NIH (National Institutes of Health) about thestudy GAIT (Glucosamin/Chondroitin Arthritis InterventionTrial), perhaps the most extensive of the kind, performed toevaluate the efficacy of administering glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate, a combinationof glucosamine/chondroitin sulphate and an anti-inflammatory medicine  (celecoxib) for joint pain.

The results of the study have shown that the combinationglucosamine/chondroitin sulphate (1500 mg+ 1200 mg thrice a day) was statistically more effectivein reducing moderate to severe arthrosic pain in the knee. Moreover, chondroitin sulphate reduced swelling and articulareffusion.

Hence the use of chondroitin sulphate/glucosamine was associated with improved symptoms (pain and joint function) and reduced use of NSAIDs and analgesics.
