Arthroben™ contains flavocoxid, a proprietary blend of
natural flavonoids, which provides comprehensive, balanced inhibition
of three metabolic pathways (COX-1, COX-2, and 5-LOX), unlike NSAIDs,
which cause strong, selective inhibition of only one individual
inflammatory pathway. This well-balanced method of action helps to
minimize systemic side effects, making it gentle on the GI tract, while
effectively managing the metabolic imbalances of osteoarthritis (OA).
Flavocoxid also acts as a powerful antioxidant to limit oxidative
conversion of arachidonic acid to other damaging metabolites and to
quench free radicals in the joints which may break down cartilage and
trigger other inflammatory processes in OA.
Arthroben™ also features Fortigel® and Verisol®, two
variations of hydrolyzed collagen which boost anabolic processes in
connective tissues and inhibits various catabolic enzymes in order help
stimulate the repair process. This supports an adequate volume of
cartilage as well as the elastic properties of connective tissues,
exactly what is necessary to maintain healthy joints.
