Glucosamine and chondroitin are poorly absorbed when applied to the skin, the skin absorbed only a minimal amount of substances that contains the drug.

In the body, these substances do not accumulate, the unspent part of them is excreted with urine in an unmodified form. In the "construction" of the cartilage involved a small part of the incoming substances. Increasing the dose of administered substances, combination with other drugs do not improve the ability of Shark cartilage to accelerate the synthesis ofcartilaginous tissue. This does not occur if the metabolic processes in the tissues of the joints reduced. This occurs naturally with age. It is possible to increase the speed of these processes in several ways.
- Improved local blood flow to the joints using a variety of methods, techniques, physiotherapy, massage.

There are reviews that only when motion in the joints of patients becomes impossible, remember the advice of podiatrists on the need of active life, reducing weight a balanced diet. Such is the price of carelessness.
- Methods of improvement of metabolic processes in the body through physical activity is recommended at the first signs of osteoarthritis (a crunch of joints, stiffness and light pain in the morning, after a long forced posture).
