Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease, chronic and debilitating that affects joint cartilage. It is localized mainly in a few areas of the body, particularly the hip and knee, but often also affects the spine.
The most common symptom of osteoarthritis is pain.
When the degeneration of the joint has evolved the patient presents a functional limitation, more or less disabling depending on the articular locations involved. In fact you can observe different symptom pictures depending on the joint involved sites. Arthrosis-bearing joints, such as hip and knee, shoulder, elbow, can hinder the pace; osteoarthritis of the spine as well as the pain may be associated with alterations of the vertebral discs with compressive disease on the roots of the nerves and then paresthesias and pain which is radiated along the limbs (back pain, sciatic pain , cruralgia).
Vetcare Jaluvida is a product based on hyaluronic acid of high molecular weight, Avovida (ASU), Quercetin and a plant complex based Boswelia Serrata., Salix Alba. and Garcinia Mangostana
STRUCTURE OF THE PRODUCT
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule synthesized in the body by fibroblasts. Its concentration in tissues tends to decrease with age. The concentration of endogenous hyaluronic acid in the dog begins to have a significant decrease around 7 years old and with age its specific activity is reduced very compromising some important functions. The endogenous Hyaluronic acid is characterized by a high molecular weight and is easily absorbed by the body in the case of oral administration, becoming part of the cartilage structure thanks to its particular affinity for this fabric. Hyaluronic acid with high molecular weight is a critical component of the synovial fluid that has the purpose of rotect the cartilage from wear and lubricate the joint and nourish the cartilage accelerating the reparative processes. Over the years the viscosity of the synovial fluid decreases and is no longer able to protect the articular cartilage which undergoes deterioration and wear processes first cause of osteoarthritis.
Avovida : the patented Avocado Soy Unsaponifiables ( ASU) reduced in the joints the harmful effects of pain or inflammation mediators. They form the glyceride fraction of vegetable oils from which they are extracted. Phytosterols in general and beta-sitosterol in particular are considered potent anti-inflammatory, plus antioxidant and nalgesiche. Some in vitro and animal studies have shown that the unsaponifiable of avocado and soy, stimulate the production of cartilage cells indispensable for the good functioning of the joints. Thanks to their properties help slow some harmful effects of osteoarthritis, help limit the harmful effects of interleukin-1 beta, inflammatory cells that play an important role in the diseased joints. Thus exert a protective effect on articular cartilage and help to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis and to decrease the consumption of NSAIDs.
Quercetin is an antioxidant belong wing family of flavonoids, beneficial and fight cellular aging determined by the increase in free radicals in the blood and inflamed tissues.
Garcinia mangostana : the mangosteen extract is a unique source of valuable natural substances and active ingredients: protocianidine, catechins, polyphenols, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, niacin, B vitamins (B1, B2, B6), vitamin C, natural xanthones . Xanthones are phenolic compounds similar to the family of polyphenols, derivatives of the benzo-y-pyrone, possess many properties, including that anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Xanthones fact may cancel cell production to the level of cyclooxygenase (COX), responsible for inflammatory processes. The researchers verified the presence of more than 40 xanthones in mangosteen and more than 30 studies shall demonstrate its various properties.
Salix alba : antirheumatic: this plant is traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic, related to its content of salicylates. It is actually used in the symptomatic treatment of joint and muscle pain manifestations, in fever, in colds in general and as a painkiller in case of headache, dental pain. Its analgesic and antipyretic actions are due to the blocking of the synthesis of substances that promote inflammation by interference with the enzymes used to produce them. Salicylic acid is the active ingredient responsible for the properties of Salix alba. Its analgesic action (contrast to pain) and antipyretic (fever contrast) appear to be related to the blockade of PGE2 synthesis of prostaglandins by interfering with the enzyme prostaglandin synthetase. It seems that his plant complex is able to prevent various reactions antigeneanticorpo and the release of histamine induced by the antigens themselves, as well as to strengthen the barrier action of the mucopolysaccharides connective tissue, which hinders the diffusion of the inflammatory processes (inflammatory).
Boswellia serrata : anti-inflammatory action: boswellic acids exert selective inhibition of an enzyme capable of stimulating the production of endogenous substances that counteract the inflammatory processes. Furthermore, this plant also seems able to inhibit elastase, enzymes that attack and degrade the connective tissue where there is a fact inflammatory. In vitro studies carried out on animals show that the antiphlogistic and analgesic action of the boswellic acids, is capable of hindering in a dose dependent formation of leukotriene B4 from arachidonic acid. This action is due to inhibition of selective 5-lipo-oxygenase, which is already active at doses of 5 micrograms / ml. It could also occur in vitro, which is capable of inhibiting elastase and hyaluronidase, notoriously destructive proteolytic enzymes, produced by leukocytes recalled for chemotactic phenomena where inflammation is present. For this reason the action of Boswellia in the joints is not only symptomatic but also curative, since it is capable of reducing the thinning of the articular cartilage.
