been proven to be beneficial in rebuilding cartilage. CH-Alpha
is the only product in the U.S. patented for its proven
method of regenerating cartilage.
Cartilage covers all your joints and protects your bones from rubbing together, which can cause chronic joint symptoms (CJS) such as stiffness and pain. Joint cartilage is comprised mostly of a matrix of collagen and proteoglycans that gives joints the protection and strength they need to perform without loss of flexibility and stiffness.
Joint cartilage does not contain blood vessels or nerves,
which makes it slow to heal or grow. However, joint cartilage
is an active, growing tissue that needs continuous regeneration
to give the protection and strength joints require to perform
without stiffness. CH-Alpha targets these areas and works
to regenerate cartilage.
