What is Viar­tril- S?

Viar­tril- S is crys­talline glu­cosamine sul­fate. It is the orig­i­nal glu­cosamine sul­fate that has been fully tested in clin­i­cal tri­als for safety and ef­fi­cacy.

It of­fers max­i­mum ab­sorp­tion of up to 90% and is the only glu­cosamine prepa­ra­tion packed with beta nee­dle crys­tals.

Clin­i­cal stud­ies and world­wide clin­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence have shown that Viar­tril- S re­lieves symp­toms of os­teoarthri­tis

> An­abolic ef­fect: Viar­tril- S stim­u­lates the syn­the­sis of pro­teo­gly­cans, the build­ing blocks of the car­ti­lage ma­trix > Anti- In­flam­ma­tory and Anti- Catabolic ef­fect: Viar­tril- S de­presses car­ti­lage degra­da­tion ac­tiv­i­ties by in­hibit­ing the ac­tion of catabolic en­zymes

As Viar­tril- S tack­les the root of the prob­lem, it takes two to four weeks to see im­prove­ment
