Synovial Fluid They are part of not only cartilage but also the synovial (joint) fluid. Previously believed that joint fluid, which is produced by the inner membrane of the joint capsule (synovitis), only serves to lubricate the joint surfaces. According to the latest scientific data, the synovial fluid through an intensive exchange of substances, ie nutrition of the cartilage. The role of the blood supply, especially from the bones, the so-called podhryaschevoy (subchondral) zone, is of secondary importance. But it is the biochemical processes taking place in this area, largely determine the the degree of cartilage destruction. The processes of recovery and regeneration occur quite slowly and individually. You can not give a definite answer as quickly help those or other drugs. Therefore, we in no way advocate against conventional treatments, including the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). We are for a rational combination of dietary supplements, herbal remedies, homeopathy, physical therapy, and allopathic remedies. The task of therapy osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease - to prevent the progression of the degenerative process in the cartilage. This is achieved through the use of chondroprotectors, in particular glucosamine sulfate (HS) and chondroitin sulfate (CS). Glucosamine sulfate (GS) is a natural low-molecular substances - aminosaharidom, which contains very high concentrations in the joints and is a natural metabolite that is not alien to the body substance. Unlike NSAIDs it is regarded as completely safe and nontoxic agent, which can be administered over a long period of time. Several studies have found that administration of HS in the body improves the regeneration of cartilage of joints.
