Pharmacology: Osteoflam Plus is a new combination with documented benefits in osteoarthritis. Glucosamine studies confirm benefits in relieving pain and symptoms of osteoarthritis. Dried green-lipped mussel supports connective tissue and joint functions, rebuilds synovial fluid in joints, ligaments and tendons. It is rich in glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), essential fatty acids and has a well-tested anti-inflammatory activity.
Health Benefits and Uses: Glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, a major component of joint cartilage. Supplemental glucosamine may help rebuild cartilage and treat arthritis. Green-lipped mussel is a nutritional whole food that possesses an exceptional degree of biological activity. Aging causes wear and tear of joints and bones. Green-lipped mussel as a supplement may assist in joint mobility and cartilage maintenance and general well-being.
Pharmacokinetics: After oral administration, glucosamine is bioavailable both systemically and at the site of action (the joint). Steady-state glucosamine concentrations in plasma and synovial fluid are achieved within a week of regular administration. Green-lipped mussel is well absorbed and utilized due to its composition of amino acid and carbohydrate complex fortified with sea mineral.
