Tendinopathy is a very common clinical condition characterized by pain, swelling and functional limitation of tendons and adjacent anatomical structures. Generally tendinopathies arise as a result of structural alterations induced by repeated overuse which represents the triggering cause in about 95% of cases. Among the factors underlying tissue degeneration, it is possible to identify the loss of the normal architecture of collagen type I and the substitution of the latter with amorphous material, the reduction of the physiological tendon blood perfusion and the onset of inflammation.
Tenosan® is indicated as an adjuvant in the treatment of tendinopathies of various origins:
Each sachet of Tenosan® contains:
2 sachets daily for 2 months, once in the morning and once in the evening before bedtime.
The choice of the evening administration (before going to bed), has a specific reason.
During the night, in fact, our body reduces its production of nitric oxide, a phenomenon which, in case of tendinopathies, could lead to a hypoxic condition (reduced oxygen supply) slowing down, as a consequence, the healing process in the tendons.
Evening administration of Tenosan ensures to keep constant nitric oxide levels in the body.
L-Arginine is an amino acid that works as a precursor of nitric oxide synthesis. Nitric oxide increases local blood flow, the production of collagen and promotes the reparative processes in the tendons improving the clinical picture in case of Tendinopathies.
Vinitrox™ is an active ingredient of new generation with a high content of polyphenols (products of the plants metabolism) characterized by a strong antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are molecules that slow down or prevent the oxidation of other substances. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals which start off a chain reaction that impair cell viability. Thanks to its powerful antioxidant activity, Vinitrox promotes the regeneration of connective tissue and reduces the formation of free radicals. Vinitrox™, furthermore, works in synergy with the Arginine-L-alpha Ketoglutarate increasing nitric oxide production and improving the local blood flow of the tendons.
Hydrolyzed Collagen Type I is the most important component of tendons and represent 65-68% of the extracellular matrix. Hydrolysed Collagen is produced through a process of purification, which makes this molecule more easily absorbable by the body. The amino acids present in Hydrolyzate Collagen Type I, favor the production of new collagen, which is essential to enrich the structure and functionality of a suffering tendon.
The MethylSulfonilMethane (MSM), an organosulfur compound, is an essential nutrient for the synthesis of the major cellular structures and is a key element in preserving the integrity and elasticity of the connective tissue (cartilage, tendons, ligaments).
In case of sulfur deficiency, the body is not able to generate healthy and, above all, permeable cells. A physiological cell permeability promotes the proper absorption of nutrients and the elimination of toxins which are formed within the cells. In this sense, MSM have the ability to relieve pain often caused by all those toxic molecules collected in the cells of the joints.
Bromelain is a catalytic enzyme extracted from the stems of pineapple plants and it exhibits numerous pharmacological activities, such as anti-inflammatory and anti-edema ones. Bromelain can be used in all those situations characterized by any inflammatory processes of traumatic and vascular origin accompanied by swelling and pain.
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that, beside being one of the best known natural antioxidants, plays a very important role in various diseases of the joints, tendons and ligaments. Vitamin C, in fact, promotes the production of collagen and elastin, key components of these connective tissues.
