Ingredients & DescriptionResearch has shown that Celadrin®, a proprietary blend of esterified fatty acids, can have an impact on improving joint function and increasing range of motion in the joints. Celadrin® is a complex molecule consisting of various fatty acids able to penetrate cell membranes, enhancing membrane permeability and cell-to-cell signaling.
Glucosamine sulfate plays a fundamental role as a building block for joint cartilage. Glucosamine sulfate has been shown in some studies to stimulate the regeneration of damaged cartilage, while also having anti-inflammatory effects. Glucosamine sulfate may further play a role in enhancing joint lubrication by acting to form the protective agent mucin, a necessary component of healthy joints.
The anti-inflammatory actions of Celadrin® have been demonstrated in test trials with subjects reporting decreased pain scores and increased walking distance. The authors theorize that Celadrin® may work by down-regulating the effect of certain precursors of the body's inflammatory response. (Hesslink R Jr., et al. Cetylated fatty acids improve knee function in patients with osteoarthritis. J Rheumatology 2002;8:1708-1712.)
