World-wide research studies indicate that Avocado/Soy Unsponifiables may improve overall joint health, mobility and discomfort and reduces the need for anti-inflammatory pain killers such as Ibuprofen.
You may consider the benefits from Arthrocen if you are…
A) Suffering from joint discomfort or stiffness due to osteoarthritis, joint injuries and cartilage wear and tear.
B) Suffering from the side effects associated with use of anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), including abdominal pain, liver and kidney problems and allergic reactions.
C) Unresponsive to Glucosamine or Chondroitin and experiencing no improvement.
What are the advantages of ARTHROCEN versus pain killers and Glucosamine HCL/ Chondroitin?
Over the counter pain killers like Tylenol, Motrin, Aspirin (NSAIDs) and prescription medicines like Celebrex can help relieve arthritis related pain, but can also cause side effects including stomach bleeding/pain and kidney damage. Glucosamine derived from shellfish may also cause allergic reactions. Most importantly, unlike other related marketed supplements like Glucosamine HCl and Chondritin Sulfate and medications like Tylenol, Motrin or Aspirin, only one Arthrocen capsule is needed to be taken per day.
What is Osteoarthritis (OA)?
The word “osteoarthritis” literally means joint inflammation, that is, a joint that is painful, warm to touch, possibly red, swollen and associated with a loss of function. Arthritis is not a single ailment. In fact, different conditions can affect the joints and their adjacent bones, muscles and tissues. They are classified into various major types of arthritis depending on whether or not inflammation, infection or bleeding is the major component.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Osteoarthritis can involve a number of joints, but it is not a disease that spreads to involve other tissues or joints throughout the body. It has been called a “degenerative” condition because it is caused, in part, by wear-and-tear of a joint over time.
Osteoarthritis can occur in both men and women and usually develops after age 45. Osteoarthritis develops in a joint when cartilage – the smooth shiny tissue that lines and cushions the ends of the bones inside a joint – begins to break down. This can happen from: prolonged “wear-and-tear” as we age, prior injury or damage to the joint from trauma or infection, cartilage that is altered by other disease or is genetically weak .As osteoarthritis progresses, it can not only cause pain in the joint, but can also cause loss of functions.
- People with osteoarthritis usually experience joint pain, swelling, or stiffness.
- Over time, the joint may lose its normal shape.
- Small deposits of bone (osteophytes) may grow on the edges of the joint.
- Bits of the bone or cartilage can break off and float inside the joint space. This may cause more pain and damage.
- Osteoarthritis can lead to depression, anxiety, feeling of haplessness, and limitations on daily activities.
- The most commonly affected joints are: knees, hips, lower back neck, and end of figures.
Diagnosis is mostly based on clinical symptoms and exams including X-rays of affected joints, MRI, blood tests to rule out the type of arthritis and joint fluid tests.
Conventional therapies include: exercise programs, weight control, pain relief medications/techniques and surgery. However, because of the lack of response to these conventional therapies for OA as well as concerns regarding the long-term administration of drugs (e.g., none- steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and associated side effects, ASU has become increasingly popular among patients with OA. If the common approaches have not been successful or cause side effects, you may consider taking one Arthrocen capsule per day for a period of 3-6 months to enhance your life quality.
