What is Cosamin® DS?
Cosamin DS is the #1 orthopedic surgeon and rheumatologist recommended brand of chondroitin sulfate/glucosamine▲. As a joint health supplement, Cosamin DS helps reduce joint pain and stiffness by using ingredients that are safe, effective, and easily absorbed. Cosamin DS is superior to all other brands and has been proven effective in published clinical studies.
How Cosamin DS works
The two main ingredients in Cosamin DS, TRH122® chondroitin sulfate and FCHG49® glucosamine hydrochloride, stimulate the production of cartilage. In younger, healthier individuals cartilage cells would normally accomplish this task. However, as one ages, cartilage cells die off and are not replaced. This starts a cycle of destruction in the cartilage. There are also enzymes present that degrade cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride stimulates cartilage production while chondroitin sulfate inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown in clinical trials to slow the progression of cartilage deterioration as well as reduce joint pain.
Cosamin DS is available at leading pharmacies nationwide (vitamin aisle) and online, in both an easy to swallow capsule and scored tablet (health food stores).
