Arthroben® is a safe, effective, non-NSAID, anti-inflammatory formula offered in a highly absorbable, . Its combination of nutrients work to reduce inflammation, stimulate connective tissue repair and increase joint mobility and function.

Benefits of Arthroben® include:
• Reduces inflammation
• Balanced inhibition of COX-1, COX-2, 5-LOX
• Offers potent antioxidant protection to reduce joint deterioration
• Increases joint mobility and function
• Stimulates joint repair, and provides nutritional building blocks for cartilage, ligaments (and skin)
• Not associated with the negative side effects that are commonly seen with NSAIDs & other drugs
• Safe for patients on warfarin (Coumadin)
• Little or no effect on prothrombin times (PT)

Made with non-GMO ingredients.

For the dietary management of the metabolic processes of Osteoarthritis

Arthroben’s four-pronged approach to the dietary management of osteoarthritis:
1. Reduces inflammation—balanced COX and LOX inhibition**
2. Potent antioxidant protection to reduce joint degeneration**
3. Reduces stiffness, increases joint mobility and function**
4. Stimulates connective tissue repair**

Key Actives in Arthroben®

A proprietary blend of the flavonoids baicalin and catechin that was shown to be as effective as naproxen in managing knee osteoarthritis and produced improvements in 87% of patients.

Dual Action of bioflavonoids:

1. Balanced inhibition of COX-1, COX-2 and 5-LOX pathways. This balanced down-regulation, though weaker than traditional NSAIDs and selective COX2 inhibitor drugs, is not associated with the side eff ects commonly seen with selective COX inhibitors.**
2. Acts as a strong antioxidant to limit free radicals and oxidative damage to cartilage and other connective tissue of the joints.**

FORTIGEL® & VERISOL®: Specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides® derived from a patented process of hydrolysis of type I collagen. These ingredients boost anabolic processes in connective tissues and provide building blocks for all collagen in the body.

• 16 human clinical trials (approximately 2,800 subjects) displayed a positive effect on joint health
• Reduced need for analgesics
• Increased joint mobility
• Improved radiographic markers of cartilage health VERISOL®
• Tested in two recent human clinical studies for its effects on collagen metabolism of the skin
• Improved skin elasticity and collagen type I content
