Each sachet contains Methylsulfonylmethane, Hyaluronic acid, Boswellia extract and Myrrh, Vitamin C, Copper and Zinc.
Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM is a direct donor of biologically active sulfur. Methylsulfonylmethane has a high gastric tolerability. The high dosage of MSM (2.5 g per sachet) is a main and fundamental characteristic, distinguishing ARTROSULFUR VISC from other food supplements.
Hyaluronic acid is a structural component of cartilage. Thanks to its particular chemical structure, it is able to bind many useful structures to retain water, improving the degree of hydration. Given the strong viscosity properties, hyaluronic acid is also essential for maintaining the turgidity, plasticity and viscosity of the extracellular matrix.
Boswellic Acids are triterpenic complexes extracted from Boswellia carteri, while Furanodienes are sesquiterpenic complexes extracted from the Commiphora myrrha. These extracts have been applied a new generation technologically advanced extraction method, which allows to obtain a precise and titrated selection of these molecules. From boswellia, which favors normal joint function, the acetyl-11-keto boswellic acid (AKBA) has been selected, the main one responsible for the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity.
Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the physiological function of cartilages.
Copper contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissues.
Zinc intervenes in the process of cell division, contributes to normal bone maintenance and normal protein synthesis.

The dried gommo-resin of Boswellia serrata (BS) is used in Ayurvedic medicine in India for its different properties, including anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-tumor properties.
Several studies have shown a positive effect on osteoarticular disorders of boswellic acids (in particular AKBA). The effect is mainly anti-inflammatory on chondrocytes both in vitro and in vivo and this is due to the reduction of leukocyte infiltration (especially in the knee joint).
The anti-inflammatory property is linked to the inhibition of the degradation of collagen, the inhibition of the release of pro-inflammatory mediators, including prostaglandins, NO (nitric oxide), as well as interference with the NF-kB pathway and the inhibition of 5 -lipossigenasi.
