To maintain the mobility of joints, doctors like to prescribe so-called chondroprotectors – substances to protect and restore cartilage. Let’s see the effectiveness of this group of drugs.
Glucosamine and chondroitin
Drugs for the joints consist of two main substances: glucosamine and chondroitin.
Glucosamine is a major component of joint cartilage, so it is generally believed that long-term use of this substance contributes to the restoration of the joints. Glucosamine is involved in building a chondroitin – important substance that provides strength to the cartilage, keeps moisture and is responsible for the elasticity.
Both of these substances in small doses are produced by the body independently.
To drink or not to drink
Undoubtedly, the glucosamine and chondroitin needed for the body. But is there a need to use these substances additionally?
Many people take chondroitin with glucosamine, individually or in the composition of complex drugs. Some argue that it helps.
A large study in 2006 and 2010, show that the benefit of chondroitin is minimal or even completely absent. Chondroprotectors reduce pain and slow joint destruction. Therefore, the use of chondroitin in clinical practice is almost useless.
Makes no sense to spend money on expensive medications and hope for the cure of diseases of the joints.
