Knee os­teoarthri­tis

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
