Chondroitin sulfate has chondroitin in its composition, belonging to the glycosaminoglycans, affecting the maintenance of joint stability and strength (building component of cartilage). Chondroitin sulfate proteins involved with the synthesis of proteoglycans. It is synthesized in the body or delivered in the foods of animal origin (e.g. containing tissue). It is used by athletes in the disciplines greatly aggravating the locomotor system with exercises, as well as in the treatment of sports injuries and joint recovery and rehabilitation after injuries, increased demand also occurs in people of advanced age. In the sports supplementation is a component of multi-component combined supplements, often containing hyaluronic acid, glucosamine and hydrolysed collagen, supporting the functioning of the locomotor system.
Dosage: 500-1500 mg per day.
Glucosamine sulphate (glucosamine) is an amino sugar present in cartilage matrix; compound needed for the glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, affecting its structure and flexibility, increasing immunity to overloads. Glucosamine is synthesized in the human body, it can be supplied from the outside (a component of shells of marine crustaceans, and in coatings for fungi) as supplements. Increased demand for glucosamine occurs in sports training (athletes exposed to overload the musculoskeletal system), during convalescence after injuries and contusions, moreover, in the case of older people in prevention and therapeutic of degenerative changes of the locomotor system. Glucosamine occurs as mono-preparation or multiple preparations (including, among others, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin, collagen hydrolyzate and ascorbic acid) in supplementation in supporting the functioning of the musculoskeletal system, such as d-glucosamine sulphate 2KCl; HCL Poly NAG.
Dosage: 500-1500 mg per day.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - dimethyl sulfoxide derivative, wherein the sulphur content is as by creating structural bonds sylfhydrylowych stabilize the protein particles and ensuring the proper functioning of the tissue and its biological regeneration. MSM has anti-inflammatory activity (within the connective tissue, mucous membranes and digestive disorders). In the sports supplementation recommended for people with special physical activity and during convalescence after injuries. Also used in the prevention of treatment of diseases of old age. Available in multiple formulations, also containing chondroitin, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, extracts of vegetable dyes (turmeric), extracts of ginger root, ascorbic acid and minerals to support the functioning of the locomotor system.
Dosage: 250-1000 mg daily (customarily taken in sports supplementation).
Lysine belongs to the group of 9 essential amino acids delivered into the body from outside (with food or as a supplement) .It is a building substance of protein (the muscle protein). It is available in food of animal origin (meat, dairy products) and vegetable (legumes). It plays an important role in many physiological processes (absorption of calcium, production of enzymes, hormones and antibodies), and arginine is a component of supplements that increase the synthesis of growth hormone (HGH stimulators). In the form of hydroxylysine (a component of collagen) recommended for the treatment of sports injuries, and prevention. In the case of stress and excessive physical and psychological overloads, it is recommended due to the function of lowering cortisol levels. Also it applies in medicine, in the treatment of anxiety and herpes. The share of lysine intake of daily doses of amino acids should not exceed 5.1%. Available for purchase at www.muscle-zone.pl.
In the processes of digestion of protein matter, as a result of decarboxylation of lysine, may be converted into cadaverine (biogenic amine) having a strong toxicity.
Dosage: the lack of a well-defined standard daily intake of lysine. The supplementation dosages regularly used: with arginine 500 mg - 2g (before bedtime) pre- and post-workout optionally with other amino acids.
Proline - endogenous amino acid, one of the 22 amino acids building proteins. As a result of the conversion (carried out with the participation of vitamin C) in the form of hydroxy-proline, it is the ingredient of collagen ( basic protein of connective tissue). Influences positively the locomotor system especially in people exposed to an overload (e.g. strength and endurance sports athletes) and during rehabilitation after injury or surgery of locomotor system organs. It is naturally occurring in food, or is synthesized in the body from glutamate. In the dietary supplementation it is a component of high-protein nutrients, amino acid products (in the form of proline or hydroxy-proline), and supporting the functioning of the locomotor system that contains collagen available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Dosage: No standards for use. Dosage as customarily in supplementation
Pycnogenol® is the highest-quality sea pine bark extract (Pinus pinaster), patented by Horphag Research. It comes from specially-reared trees, growing on the unspoiled, unpolluted areas of Bordeaux in France. It is entirely natural, free from pesticides and herbicides.

French maritime pine bark extract is a material often chosen by naturotherapists, demonstrating high effectiveness due to the richness of biologically active compounds, especially procyanidins. The compound that is especially distinguished is OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidin). It is a strong antioxidant and also demonstrates anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
It is suggested that the application of French maritime pine bark extract may considerably decrease the risk of developing cardiovascular system diseases, which constitute hyperglycemia complication. It is able to decrease the level of sugar in blood and may also reduce the level of glycated hemoglobin.
It is also suggested that the application of French maritime pine bark extract supports the functionality of the male reproductive system. Research shows that in combination with arginine, this preparation increases the amount of sperm cells.
Moreover, it is proved that French maritime pine bark extract positively influences physical efficiency, slowing down the increase of NAD+ in the blood serum.
