The perfect natural combination for joint health

Joint mobility issues are very common worldwide, affecting millions of individuals, especially elderly, people practicing intense sport and overweight people. Symrise, as a major European supplier of natural ingredients, took advantage of its 25 years of expertise in the poultry industry to develop Chondractiv, a unique ingredient for joint health.

ChondrActiv is a patented chicken cartilage extract containing an optimized combination of:
• 55% Type 2 collagen: Type II collagen is thought to be able to induce antigen-specific tolerance. This has been proven in the case of Rheumatoid Arthritis and is presumed in the case of other joint disease.
• 12% Chondroitin sulfate has been shown to inhibit cartilage breakdown. Cell culture studies have shown that exogenously supplied chondroitin sulfate competitively decreases the degradation of collagen and proteoglycans. The use of this substance can lead to cartilage repair: pain and stiffness are reduced and can even disappear.
•1% Hyaluronic Acid - Allows the rehydratation of the synovial liquid
