Cosamin offers unparalleled safety. Acute oral toxicity tests have been conducted indicating no oral toxicity. The tests indicate an LD-50 greater than 5gm/kg which is the standard for nontoxic substances. In addition, fungal and microbial test are run on each batch of Cosamin to make sure the product is free of pathogens.
What Is The Difference Between Cosamin and Other Oral Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine Products?
Cosamin is a patented combinations of glucosamine, purified chondroitin sulfate and manganese ascorbate. The ingredients are of unparalleled purity and each has its own primary function in connective tissues synthesis.
- Glucosamine HCL – Stimulates the synthesis of synovial fluid and the complete cartilage matrix including collagen and proteoglycans.
- Chondroitin Sulfate – In addition to being the major GAG found in cartilage, provides protection by inhibiting degradative enzymes.
- Manganese – Must be present for the biosynthesis of proteoglycans to occur.
- Ascorbate – A necessary cofactor for proteoglycan synthesis
The synergistic effect of each ingredient performing its primary function concurrently is what makes Cosamin unique and the only true, broad-spectrum cartilage matrix enhancer.
This overall matrix enhancement, along with the protection afforded, will over time allow for lower maintenance dosing, thus making Cosamin more economical to use the longer a person is on the product.
