In joint, articular cartilage has a cushion effect between two bones preventing the bone ends to hit each other. The cartilage is composed of collagen and proteoglycans that retain water and form the mechanical properties of cartilage like a smooth and lubricating surface on underlying bone ends. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate, natural substances in the body, are basic elements for cartilage.
Arthrobalans Drink contains glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and vitamin C. Vitamin C affects collagen formation and contributes to maintenance of normal cartilage in joints. The powder diluted in water is an easy and convient way to take daily a high dose of glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate.
