Protecta – cartilage regeneration stimulant. The pharmacological action of the drug is determined by the properties of its constituent components.
Glucosamine sulphate is a natural aminomonosaharida glucosamine salt, physiologically present in the human body. Activates the synthesis of proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid and other substances included in the joint membranes, synovial fluid and cartilage; It stimulates the synthesis of collagen. Favorably affects cartilage metabolism – strengthens the anabolic and catabolic processes weakens and increases the permeability of the joint capsule, restores enzymatic processes in the cells of the synovial membrane and articular cartilage.
It provides chondroprotective effects of bone-seeking and normalizes calcium deposition in bone. Exhibits moderate anti-inflammatory action which is not related to the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, and is realized by the antioxidant activity (by blocking the formation of superoxide radicals) and suppression of the activity of lysosomal enzymes. Prevents possible damage to the cartilage metabolic action of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and glucocorticosteroids (GCS).
Chondroitin sulfate is a high molecular weight mucopolysaccharide, participating in the construction of the cartilage (serves as an additional substrate for the formation of cartilage matrix). Has chondroprotective effect, it stimulates the regeneration of cartilage tissue, exhibits anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. Normalizes metabolism hyaline tissue stimulates formation hyaluron, the synthesis of proteoglycans and type II collagen; hyaluron protects against enzymatic degradation, including lysosomal enzymes, which leads to the destruction of connective tissue. Affects the calcium and phosphorus metabolism in cartilage, bone resorption retards and reduces the loss of calcium, slows degeneration of cartilage. Prevents compression of connective tissue and plays the role of a lubricant for the joint surfaces, joint fluid normalizes formation.
Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are involved in the biosynthesis of connective tissue, preventing cartilage destruction processes and stimulating the regeneration of cartilage tissue, which reduces the severity of pain and improve functional ability of joints.
Methylsulfonylmethane – natural organic sulfur compound exhibits high biological activity. Sulfur promotes absorption of minerals by the liver, is important for the functioning of the brain, the formation of hair, nails, connective tissue, cartilage, has a pronounced antiallergic effect. Methylsulfonylmethane promotes the removal of lactate from tissues toxins that increases the permeability of nutrients; It helps the body to repair damaged skin cells and connective tissue, increases their elasticity.
Manganese is involved in energy production processes, metabolism of proteins and fats, synthesis of bone and connective tissue.
Calcium is the basis of bone tissue, stimulates the activity of several key enzymes involved in maintaining the ion balance in the body, it affects the processes occurring in the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems.
Vitamin D3uvelichivaet calcium absorption in the small intestine by stimulating the synthesis of calcium-binding proteins, improves calcium reabsorption in the renal tubules. Vitamin D3 activates the processes of bone remodeling through increased synthesis of collagen type I protein and matrix synthesis through activation of osteoblasts. Effect on the functional state of the thyroid, parathyroid, gonads, providing calcification of bones.
