Cartilage protector (chondroprotective compound) is a wide group of medical preparations and biological additives that work for restoration of arthrodial cartilage and protect it from possible damage.
There are mono-preparations with a single component – usually chondroitin sulfate or glucosamine. And there are combined preparations – glucosamine along with chondroitin, sometimes together with vitamin E or non-steroid anti-inflammatory agents. A less frequent addition is a more expensive hyaluronic acid.
‘Siberian Biotechnologies’ on the order of OOO ‘NATIVE’ developed HONDRO — a latest generation cartilage protector with four essential components.
The first is the classical combination of chondroitin and glucosamine.
The second is hyaluronic acid that keeps moisture in connecting tissues, cartilage, ligaments and synovial fluid.
The third component – methylsufonylmethane is a biologically available sulphur compound. Sulphur is essential for collagen that is irreplaceable for elasticity of connecting tissues (muscle and ligaments).
The fourth component, being unique for HONDRO, is a bio-friendly silicon indispensable for activating regeneration of connecting tissue. Elastic properties of connecting tissue including arthrodical cartilage are contingent of silicon compounds that it contains.
*don’t practice autotherapy. In serious cases of joint conditions a doctor prescribes chondroprotectors in conjunction with other therapeutic medication.
