"Artro Aktiv": reviews of customers and doctors
"Artro-active" is the generic name for a whole group of drugs that are intended to affect the health of the joints. These include creams, oil balms, as well as capsules and tablets. The drug belongs to the dietary supplement and is not considered a medicine, respectively, their compositions and effects on the body are different.
Reviews of "Artro-active" consider in this article.
Forms of release
The drug is produced in the form of tablets "Nutrition joints." They are composed of substances that are able to integrate into the cartilage tissue, which gives it more elasticity and resistance to deformation. Chondroitin and glucosamine - the two main substances of the body, which are restored by the "Arthro-active".
There is a drug in the form of capsules. They contain vegetable components. The composition includes oil extracts of Siberian cedar, lemon, incense tree resin and turmeric seeds. Such a compound formula reduces the level of inflammation, contributing to its more rapid cure, improving metabolism, relieving joint pain. Reviews "Artro-active" is confirmed.Of course, we must understand that only capsules will not be able to provide complete treatment, they are only used as auxiliary means supporting the function.
Also, the drug can be found in the form of a cream-balm. Reviews of "Artro-asset", mostly positive.
Chondroitin is a high molecular weight polysaccharide that belongs to the group of glycosaminoglycans that is produced by cartilage articular tissue. It is able to fix sulfur in the synthesis of chondroitin sulfuric acid, and this allows calcium to accumulate in the bones. It also helps stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid, strengthens the connective tissue structures, namely cartilage, tendons, ligaments and skin. It is an analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent that stimulates the active regeneration of cartilage. The main feature of chondroitin among proteoglycans is the possibility of preserving water in the cartilage thickness, in the form of water cavities, creating cushioning and absorbing impacts, and ultimately increasing the strength of connective tissue. Another important feature of this substance is to inhibit the action of specific enzymes that destroy chondrocytes.
Thus, chondroitin protects, replenishes and restores cartilage tissue. This substance is contained in the composition of healthy cartilage and intraarticular fluid. If, in any pathology, the production of chondroitin is impaired, then such a drug helps to balance its lack in the human body. The list of positive effects is quite long, but the most basic function is to fill in the missing elements in the joints and return them to full-fledged life.
Reviews of "Artro-asset" abound.
Glucosamine - a substance that is necessary for the normal functioning of the joints. Present in the composition of the synovial fluid. This substance, which produces cartilage of the joints, is part of chondroitin. According to its structure, it is a monosaccharide (an organic compound, the main group of carbohydrates), which is a necessary precursor (a substance that enters into the reaction, leading to the formation of a whole substance) in the biochemical synthesis of lipids and proteins. Due to the fact that glucosamine is a precursor of glycosaminoglycans, which constitute the main part of the articular cartilage, the idea of using arthrosis in treatment was considered.
However, clinical trials of the efficacy of the drug in the treatment of osteoarthritis are different. On the one hand, several small experiments have shown the effectiveness of the substance in relieving pain syndrome. On the other hand, many other trials deny effectiveness and utility. One large study was conducted in the United States from 2002 to 2006, which did not show significant changes in pain in the average efficacy of the drug. An exception was the group with stronger pain, for which the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin was effective. Reviews of tablets "Artro-active" interest many.
Having collected all the data from the study, the International Group for the Study of Osteoarthritis decided to assign glucosamine and chondroitin the position “unsuitable” to restore the articular cartilage, and the position “ambiguous” in case of an appointment to reduce pain. The community recommends that you stop taking this drug if you do not get the effect after six months.
Also another study was conducted in 2011 on the concentration of glucosamine in the plasma and intraarticular fluid,after internal (oral) intake of a substance in the form of crystals, a sixfold excess of the presence of glucosamine in the intraarticular fluid of the subjects was revealed, which partly explains the inconsistency of previous experiments. There is an assumption that glucosamine sulfate is more effective than common glucosamine hydrochloride.
Clinical trials of the drug
This study was conducted within two weeks. All participants in the experiment were divided into two groups according to age and gender:
In the first group there were twenty patients who, together with a complex of physiotherapeutic treatment, took the prescribed oil balm for external use and the capsule “Artro-Active”.
In the second group (placebo), which also included twenty people, received only the traditional complex physiotherapy treatment.
It is important to note that the main criterion for conducting this experiment was the maintenance of stable dosages, which were supported by drug therapy two weeks before and during the entire course of rehabilitation treatment. 75% of patients in the group received background therapeutic treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs.
Oil balm "Artro-Active" warming, intended for external use, was applied in even layers on the skin in places of pain. After applying it was necessary to wait two or three minutes until the balm is absorbed. The test began with a strip of balsam from 2 cm 2 times a day. Gradually, the dose was increased to obtain a result of either a positive or adverse reaction.
As for the capsule "Artro-Active", was prescribed from eight to ten capsules per day with meals.
The duration of the course and the dosage of drugs varied depending on the pain, as well as the activity of the inflammatory process. The observation period was two weeks. During treatment, the scheme and method of preparations could be changed to make the test more effective.
The conclusion is the following: balm and capsules increase the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. There is a clear usefulness of a combination of drugs with physiotherapeutic methods of treatment. According to reviews, the instructions for use of "Artro-Active" is very detailed.
The tool is prescribed for the following ailments:
- chronic diseases of the articular apparatus;

Reviews of "Artro-asset"
This is striking, but reviews of the use of dietary supplements "Artro-active" are practically absent.Despite the fact that this is a fairly publicized, universally known and “promoted” product, for some reason there is no live reaction from buyers.
In isolated cases, you can collect some information from real people, in a situation where they are just going to use the drug and consult with doctors on the Internet, asking them questions. For example, women are interested in how long a course of supplement can last? Experts say that you can drink this course for a long time. The main thing is to take a break between them.
There are also reviews about the balm "Artro-Active" and its effectiveness in cases with problems of the musculoskeletal system in the elderly. People write that by experience it is not sufficiently effective, and, most likely, other drugs will be required. Best of all, consult a doctor who leads the patient in person and will be able to give specific recommendations.
Consequently, the dietary supplement “Artro-active” may benefit the body, but this is not a panacea. Before buying and applying it is better to consult a doctor who will tell you and help you understand the treatment method.
