Viartril-S relieves the symptoms (pain and function limitation) of osteoarthritis
Recent, clinical trials have also demonstrated that Viartril-S is a compound that, when given for long-term treatment courses (i.e. at least three years), can decrease the progression of osteoarthritis
Viartril-S maximum absorption up to 90%
Viartril-S is the only glucosamine preparation packed with beta needle crystals.
Viartril-S works via anabolic effect; Viartril-S stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans, the building blocks of the cartilage matrix
It also works through anti-inflammatory and anti-catabolic effects; Viartril-S depresses cartilage degradation activities by inhibiting the action of catabolic enzymes
How long does it take for Viartril-S to work?
As Viartril-S works at the root of the problem, it will take about two to four weeks to observe the improvement in pain and function
Is Viartril-S a safe product?
During two long-term three-year studies, the safety of Viartril-S was found to be similar to placebo (“sugar-pill”).
Millions have been treated with Viartril-S with very few and mild adverse reactions; may include gastric discomfort and pain, constipation, diarrhoea, meteorism and nausea. These events are few and similar to the ones observed with placebo
