Synogen Capsule: Each delayed release capsule contains Undenatured type II Collagen 40 mg.
Synogen contains Undenatured type II Collagen also known as Chicken Collagen type II that works by oral tolerization. This Undenatured type II Collagen contains epitopes that interacts with the peyer’s patch in the intestine. It prevents the immune system from releasing destructive collagen specific T-cell. This T-cell is responsible for degradation of collagen in the joints. This causes halting the erosion of joint cartilage. As inflammation subsides the disequilibrium of cartilage turnover shifts in favor of rebuilding. It appears that once the destructive cycle is broken, the joint cartilage begins to repair itself through collagen building activities that are part of normal cartilage remodelling process.
The drug is indicated to treat osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, other joint pain & inflammation associated with injury and impaired joint function.
