How does it work: ARTHROGUARD 300 ingredients ASU

Promote the growth factor of cartilage, decrease the catabolism. Slows down the reduction of intra articular space. Prevents deterioration of synovial cells (which line the joints) and may help regenerate normal connective tissue in joints. Blocks pro-inflammatory chemicals and reduce the pain.

Studies: ASU has been studied extensively studied in Europe, where it is routinely used to treat Osteoarthritis. There are several published article available.

We include as below some of the important articles list:

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It is caused by aging joints, joint overuse, injury and obesity. People with Osteoarthritis experience joints pain, soreness or stiffness which can lead to disability and need continual medical treatment. It is not recommended to long term use of anti-inflammatory drugs treatment due to side effects including stomach bleeding or pain and damages to kidney and liver. Thanks to alternative natural product ARTHROGUARD 300 helps to reduce significantly the intake of anti-inflammatory drugs.

Due to protective and healing properties of ARTHRO GUARD 300 to the joint, it slows the progression of osteoarthritis accordingly patients may no longer need to depend on anti-inflammatory drugs; or just need to take less doses or during crisis only.
