How Cosamin DS works
The two main ingredients in Cosamin DS, FCHG49® glucosamine hydrochloride and
TRH122® chondroitin sulfate, stimulate the production of cartilage. In younger,
healthier individuals cartilage cells would normally accomplish this task.
However, as one ages, cartilage cells die off and are not replaced. This starts
a cycle of destruction in the cartilage. There are also enzymes present that
degrade cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride stimulates cartilage production
while chondroitin sulfate inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage.
Chondroitin sulfate has been shown in clinical trials to slow the progression of
cartilage deterioration as well as reduce joint pain.
