Chondro - Protective

Properties and actions:

Spondex restores the normal cartilage structure by stimulating the synthesis of proteoglycans and collagen as well as inhibiting collagenase type II. Due to its action as anti-oxidant, Spondex prevents the damage caused by free radicals associated with specific disorders and life style patterns, including aging and rheumatic diseases. 
Spondex reduces the damaging effect of NSAIDs on the gastro-duodenal mucosa as it normalizes the phospholipid content of the endothelial cells. 
Spondex is the most effective lipid soluble, chain breaking antioxidant that protects the cell membrane from peroxidative damage. 
Spondex combats free-radical-mediated pathology that develops over time in several degenerative diseases, as well as inflammatory processes. 
Spondex aids the healing process of mechanical tissue injuries and those due to cell rupture. Natural D-alpha tocopherol is 40% more effective than the synthetic one, as it binds with higher affinity to the active sites on the cell membrane.
