CosaminDS is a double-strength formulation containing twice the active ingredients per capsule as the original regular strength Cosamin. This new formulation reduces the number of capsules required daily for both initial and maintenance administration and is more cost effective.
Joints and Articular Cartilage
Optimal functioning of the skeletal joints (knees, wrist, elbows, fingers, toes, hips, shoulders, neck and back) dramatically affects our mobility and dexterity especially as we age. This, in turn, dictates not only the level of athletic activity a person can enjoy , but can even affect the performance of such routine daily functions as turning a door knob or removing a lid from a container.
Articular cartilage plays an important role in optimal joint function by providing a smooth, low friction surface between articulating bone ends while transmitting load forces to the underlying bone.
