What is α CART ?
The GREASE For The Joints
Its composition is:
Shark Cartilage Extract 740 mg
Powerful and non toxic anti-inflammatory agent has an angiogenesis inhibition properties


Is an amino sugar

Promotes the formation and repair

Of cartilage

Keeps the joint lubricated
*Glucosamine has a long-term combined structure-modifying and symptom-modifying effects
*Lancet 2001 Jan. 27


Is a carbohydrate

Promotes elasticity in cartilage


Inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage

*Chondroitin sulfate inhibits the progression of the joint space narrowing

*Study in university hosp. Zurich, Switzerland

Osteoarthritis Cartilage. 2004 Apr.

Supportive Group
Collagen TT


Calcium & Phosphorus

Support cartilage matrix composition

Cartilage Components:

Water, Glycosaminoglycans, Hyaluronic acid,
Proteoglycans, Chondroitin sulfate, Collagen &

All are held in collagen matrix (sponge holds water)


Degenerative disease of joint & cartilage lead to formation of bony spurs within various joints
Osteoarthritis Risk Factors:
Trauma in joints
Repetitive occupational usage

Progression Of Osteoarthritis

Normal cartilage is a-vascular
The synovial fluid of osteoarthritis patients contain substance called ESAF (endothelial cell stimulating angiogenesis factor), this factor is associated with the vascularization and degradation of joint cartilage
Osteoarthritis can improve slowly with
1- Exercise & physical therapy
2- Oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory
3-Corticosteriods injection into the joint spaces

Currant Treatment’s Problems

Local irritation associated with the use
Treat the symptoms only
The focus has changed from how do we treat symptoms to how do we stop progression of osteoarthritis
