Vitamins, minerals/trace elements – for the cartilage and bones
When a person suffers from changes in their joints as a result of osteoarthritis, their cartilage and joints are placed under particular strain. This makes it important to ingest nutrients such as glucosamine sulphate, chondroitin sulphate, collagen hydrolysate, hyaluronic acid and acetylcysteine which are found in the cartilage, together with omega-3 fatty acids (eicosapentaenoic acid, docosahexaenoic acid).
The benefits of vitamin C and vitamin E, and also the trace elements zinc, selenium, copper and manganese are also important for joint structures. Calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K are very important for maintaining the skeletal structure of people with osteoarthritis. In the interests of combatting doping, Orthomol arthroplus is included on the Kölner Liste® (Cologne List®) to achieve greater transparency and safety.
