The invention relates to a composition of collagen hydrolysate and fucoidan, providing beneficial effects on joints.
BackgroundArticular cartilage is a thin covering of a highly specialized connective tissue on the ends of bones surfaces that covers synovial joints. Its principal function is to provide a smooth, lubricated surface for articulation and to facilitate the transmission of loads with a low frictional coefficient. Articular cartilage is endowed with elasticity and at the same time of resistance, and it allows the joints to slide protecting them, at the same time, from frictions. As the natural shock absorber of our joints, cartilage performs amazing things every day, even though it does not even have blood vessels. Nutrients only get from the synovial fluid to the cartilage tissue by passive diffusion (the molecules' own movement), so that a high supply of nutrients must be ensured for an optimal supply.
