Olga Anisimova, assistant professor of occupational and rehabilitation medicine Medical University rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, spondylitis, osteoporosis – these diseases are characterized by inflammatory and degenerative changes in the connective tissue (CT) joints and periarticular areas. In the approaches to their treatment, despite differences in etiology and clinical manifestations, there is much in common. There are currently many therapeutic schemes – from drug exposure to different types of surgery. Accumulated experience and the integrated application of biologically active additives (BAA) under the joint pathology. K now accumulated enough evidence to show the crucial role of nutrition in the development of pathology of the locomotor apparatus. Therefore, both in treatment and in prevention of these diseases is necessary correction power supply.
And here is justified as the use of dietary supplements to maintain normal functioning of ST, including cartilage and bone, and to reduce the risk of degenerative changes in joints. According to recent research for the effective maintenance of the normal functioning of the musculoskeletal system appropriate use of dietary supplements based on enzymes, particularly proteolytic (bromelain, papain, pepsin, trypsin, hemotripsina, etc.). It is known that enzymes have analgesic, anti, anti, antiplatelet, fibrinolytic, and immunomodulatory effects. The latter property is particularly important because most of the diseases of musculoskeletal system are autoimmune in nature. Enzymes are blocking increased activity of the immune system and contribute to the removal of immune complexes are responsible for inflammation. Good results are observed using BAD complexes, including enzymes of various kinds of action in combination with flavonoids (bromelain, protease, amylase, rutin).
