Thanks to our joints we can move easily. The cartilage in our joints is extremely important for this. After all, it is a smooth surface that prevents bones from rubbing or grinding against each other. But thanks to its specific structure, cartilage also functions as a shock absorber. It can be compressed under heavy weight or by making strenuous efforts. If the strain stops, the cartilage will easily take its original form.
The cartilage disposes of these unique qualities thanks to collagen and proteoglycans. Collagen provides a mesh structure including a gel of proteoglycans and water. Collagen contributes to the strength of the cartilage, proteoglycans to the elasticity.
Almost 70% of the cartilage substance consists of collagen. Therefore, collagen is extremely important for the proper functioning of joints.

On 14/12/2012, a new European law has been introduced concerning health claims. This law prohibits manufacturers of food and nutritional supplements to mention health claims which aren't scientifically proven on the packaging of their products.
All the products that don't meet the new claim-legislation must be taken off the market. Websites and information sheets for consumers must also meet the new legislation. That's the reason why you will find less information about the functioning of certain nutritional supplements on our website.
