Collaflex contains 3 major structural components of the cartilaginous tissue in the same proportions as those naturally occurring in the human body.
Collagen type II – the main structural component of cartilage and tendons. Collagen forms a scaffold-like structure in which other components of articular cartilage are embedded.
Hyaluronic acid – a substance with a unique ability to bind a large number of water molecules. Thanks to this property, hyaluronic acid helps to maintain proper hydration, resilience and elasticity of connective tissues.
Chondroitin sulphate – the third major structural component of cartilaginous tissue, which forms the cartilage matrix. It is also a building block for the synthesis of new cartilage structures.
