Pure Forskolin Extract

The Pure Forskolin Extract Review primary chemical change observed is the loss of proteoglycans (a protein sugar or mucopolysaccharide) from the hyaluronic backbone, and is initiated by activation of degenerative enzymes associated with inflammation. These proteoglycans are responsible for cartilage resilience or bounce and their loss from the cartilage results in a stiffer material that is more easily damaged by "wear and tear". Proteoglycans account for 75-80% of normal cartilage, in osteoarthritis proteoglycans are reduced to 35-40%. The increased turnover and eventual loss of proteoglycans from osteoarthritic tissue is a consequence of an increase in chondrocyte metabolism.

At the same time there is some kind of matrix destabilization possibly the result of collagen fibers breaking. Collagen fibers provide the high tensile strength of cartilage. The physical properties are not unlike a mattress which can be compressed but not pulled apart sideways. The collagen/proteoglycan matrix provides the structural framework of the tissue and also forms a fluid compartment for the transport of nutrients, waste products, chemical messengers and hormones, to and from chondrocytes. Whether the breaking of the collagen fibers is a consequence of increased proteoglycan degradation is still not clear.

The degenerative enzymes can be modulated by Bromelain, Quercetin, Rutin, and EFA's. Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin D, C, B6, E, Glucosamine, and DLPA are all useful to help with inflammation. This combination of nutrients increases protein, proteoglycan and amino acid synthesis, facilitates repair of ligament and connective tissue, improves and restores bone growth and muscle action, increases blood vessel integrity and supports immune system function.
