Epiitalis® • Apparent increase in chondrocyte viability, in the presence of Interleukin-1, which potentially reduces the rate of degradation of the cartilage1. • May increase the number of chondrocytes (chondroproliferation), which potentially increases the health and longevity of the cartilage1. • May reduce build up of negative chemicals Abalone • Source of Omega-3 fatty acids that may stabilise cell membranes, prevent oxidation, and therefore may promote better joint mobility2. • May inhibit the production of degradative agents and in turn inhibit chondrocyte death, reduce cartilage degradation and may decrease poor joint function2. New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel • May provide elements to assist with suppression of agents involved in cartilage breakdown3. • Source of amino acids, which may provide the scaffold upon which the cartilage matrix is supported2. • May assist in reducing GAG release from the cartilage matrix into the synovial fluid2. • May improve cell viability2. Marine Cartilage • Provides a natural source of essential GAGs and HA, which are necessary for the health of the synovial fluid and cartilage matrix2. • May inhibit the production of related chemical mediators, potentially adding to the complementary effect of the other ingredients2.
