What role do the glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate in Cosamin MSM play?
The combination of the trademarked FCHG49®** glucosamine and TRH122®** sodium chondroitin sulfate supports cartilage production and inhibits enzymes in the joints that break down cartilage. These ingredients together have been shown to protect joint cartilage better than either ingredient alone. A greater than additive effect, known as a “synergistic” effect, was seen on cartilage cells using glucosamine and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate together. In addition, this combination has been shown in clinical studies to reduce joint pain.
