How Does Cosamin DS Reduce Joint Pains
Glucosamine hydrochloride improves the production of cartilage in our body. Chondroitin sulfate slows down the deterioration of cartilage and stops certain enzyme in our body that degrades the cartilage. That being said, combining these two substances effectively relieves joint pain.
While Chondroitin sulfate stops the enzymes that degrade our cartilage, Glucosamine hydrochloride boosts the production of cartilage. Therefore, the production of new cartilage is able to take place and is protected by Chondroitin sulfate by stopping the enzymes that deteriorates them. Since our cartilage is back to normal, our joints are no longer stiff and are more flexible, therefore resulting to reduced joint pain.
