Joint preparation Don – a full description of the drug

Various diseases of the joints, bones and spine are an unpleasant situation: pathologies are almost impossible to cure completely. All that can be done in such cases is to stop the degenerative processes that occur in the tissues of the joints, bones and vertebrae, restore their nutrition, support the body with wellness procedures and following a therapeutic diet.

Description of the drug Don

  1. Regenerate cartilage tissue.
  2. Return mobility to the damaged joint.
  3. Increase the amount of synovial fluid inside the joints.
  4. Improve their cushioning.
  5. Relieve pain.
  6. Prevent the appearance of cancer malignant and benign tumors.
  7. Make up for the nutrient deficiency needed by the tissues of the joints and vertebrae.

Prescribe Don medicine to treat joint diseases and restore the functions of the musculoskeletal system.

The action of the drug is based on the delivery to the body artificially (through tablets, injections) of substances that suppress the process of joint inflammation, which leads to the complete destruction of those enzymes that aggressively affect cartilage tissue. This provides a quick regeneration of the articular cartilage.

With bone diseases, Don helps calcium linger in the body and form calcium compounds in the bone structure.

Indications for use of the drug Don

The medicine is prescribed to treat many diseases not only of the joints, but also of the spine. The drug acts not only as a chondroprotector, but also as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

These data are confirmed and give reason to prescribe a medicine for the treatment of the following diseases:

The effect of the drug Don

If most drugs have a large list of contraindications and side effects, then Don’s drug is the first on the list of safety, since its use stimulates the natural processes that occur in the body of every healthy person.

Active substances are rapidly absorbed in the small intestine, and 90% of the substance is excreted by the kidneys. Don acts quickly, after two weeks of taking you can feel the first results:

  1. Pain relief.

After the course of taking the drug, its effect lasts for a long time – about two to three months, which allows you to take breaks and take not regularly, but 4-5 times a year with courses.

The speed of action depends on the dosage form the drug will be taken. For example, patients who gave injections felt the first treatment effect after 4 days, and those who took the powder and capsules noted improvement after 10 days of regular use.

Even “neglected” joint problems can be cured at home! Just remember to smear it once a day.

The method of application and dosage of the drug depend on the dosage form.

A little about the price and analogues

The drug of Don is developed according to a special technology, so there is no analogue. However, drugs are known in pharmacology that, like Don, contain glucosamine – Ellasteng, Elbon. The prices of all drugs are from 1000 to 1500 rubles, so it’s not worth looking for something cheaper, and even more so without the advice of a doctor.

Brief conclusions

Pharmaceuticals have gone a long way by developing Don’s drug and its glucosamine-containing analogs to restore cartilage in the joints.

Not a single non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug has been given the opportunity to repair damaged cartilage tissue, while Don has such “powers”. This is not just a chondroprotector – this is a drug that combines the action of several groups of drugs at once:

  1. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
  2. Chondroprotectors.
  3. Painkillers.
  4. Anabolic drugs.

Unlike many other drugs prescribed for the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, Don has small lists of contraindications and side effects. An undesirable reaction to the drug, if it appears, is very rare. Contraindications Dona for the treatment of joints – children’s age, pregnancy, lactation, renal and heart failure, allergic reactions.

The medicine is convenient in that it is available in several forms (powder, capsules and injections), which makes it convenient for administration.

Each dosage form has its own characteristics and its speed of action, the first effect from injections appears most quickly (within 3-4 days), the powder acts most slowly. The dosage of the active substance in each dosage form also varies, so the drug, its dosage form and dosage for treatment should be prescribed only by a doctor.

Hondrostrong is an innovative drug that is created to combat joint diseases. It helps with arthritis, arthrosis and other diseases. Thanks to the use of cream, joint mobility quickly returns. Damaged cartilage tissue is regenerated, which prevents the further development of the problem.

Our medical center was the first to receive certified access to the latest drug for osteochondrosis and joint pain - Hondrostrong. I confess to you when I heard about it for the first time, I just laughed, because I did not believe in its high efficiency.
