Glucosamine sulphate 2KCl
Glucosamine sulphate is one of the most widely used active agents in joint nutrition, also thanks to a number of clinical studies. 1 It is a substance used by the body for the synthesis of hyaluronic acid contained in synovial fluid and the synthesis of proteoglycans, which together with collagen, are fundamental building blocks of articular cartilage and ensure its flexibility.

Boswellia serrata extract
Boswellia serrata is also known to as Indian frankincense. The tree resin has long been used for therapeutic purposes in Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine. The resin extract containing Boswellic acids helps to keep joints flexible and healthy.

Curcumin
Curcumin is extract from trumeric. It is outstanding at maintaining healthy and flexible joins, as proven by clinical studies. 2

Piperin
Piperin extracted from black pepper greatly improves the absorption and use of curcumin in the body. 3

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a very important vitamin with many functions in the human body. It contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the healthy function of cartilage. In addition, it also supports the good condition and quality of bones, teeth, gums, skin and blood vessels, and the body’s natural immunity.

Type I collagen
Collagen constitutes the basic building block of connective tissue. Type I collagen is the most widespread type of collagen in the human body. It primarily occurs in the tendons, ligaments, fibrocartilage and bones.

type of collagen in joint cartilage.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the human body as the body cannot synthesise them and they are obtained from food.
