Degenerative dystrophic (metabolic) diseases of joints and spine now occupy one of the top places among the causes of disability. Therefore, treatment of these diseases are given special attention. In recent years, a number of drugs that restore cartilage, arthritis - one of them.
Metabolic diseases of joints and spine
Exchange joint disease (osteoarthritis), and spine (osteochondrosis) are found in the majority of elderly people, and people with high physical activity. Osteoarthritis - is a metabolic disorder in the cartilage, which is accompanied by destruction of the cartilage and then bone. In patients with osteoarthritis of disturbed function of the joint, they are experiencing a lot of pain. It affects most large joints, but may be affected, and small joints of the feet, hands and spine. When osteochondrosis changes begin in the intervertebral discs.
A feature of these diseases is a constant grueling pain of patients, so they are often prescribed drugs group NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), and, in some cases, and glucocorticoid hormones. And they both have a lot of side effects, can accelerate the destruction and stops the growth of the cartilage of the joints. So today in the complex treatment of osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis include chondroprotectors - drugs that protect the cartilage of the joints of the various influences. It is to such drugs is arthritis.
How does Artra
Artra helps to restore the metabolism in the cartilage. It consists of two active substances - glucosamine and chondroitin. Each tablet arthritis (they are specially coated) contains 500 mg of glucosamine and chondroitin
Glucosamine - a building material of an organism
. Glucosamine and chondroitin - aminosaharidy that make up the cartilage intervertebral discs and articular cartilage.
Chondroitin is a natural component of cartilage, it is part of the foundations of cartilage. Action chondroitin is that it protects the cartilage from destruction, it restores the tissue and the viscosity of synovial fluid. Protection from destruction is carried out by stimulating the metabolism

and the suppression of the action of enzymes that destroy cartilage. Chondroitin also has a slight anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.
Glucosamine stimulates the formation of substances which then become the building blocks of cartilage, joint casings, and synovial fluid. It protects the cartilage from chemical damage, including the metabolic disorders caused by drugs taken as analgesics - NSAIDs and glucocorticoids. Just as chondroitin, it has some anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.
Arthritis generally with the right long-term use slows the progression of degenerative processes in the joints and spine, restores the cartilage and synovial fluid viscosity. This drug also reduces the dose and duration of anti-inflammatory pain medications, have many side effects. After treatment of the drug for six months for a long time, improved joint function, are in pain.
Artra help adults and elderly people suffering from metabolic diseases of joints and spine: osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, periodontal disease (periodontal tissue metabolic diseases), spondylosis (spinal cord injuries with the deformation of the vertebrae by bone growths), chondromalacia patella
Chondromalacia patella - pay attention to the pain
(destruction of the cartilage of the patella), with deformed joints from injury, increased functional load on the joints (obesity, high physical activity). Moreover, arthritis used for the prevention of metabolic diseases of the joints in the elderly.
Long-lasting therapeutic effect is achieved when taking arthritis for at least six months.
In some cases, Artra contraindicated
Contraindications for the use of arthritis is idiosyncrasy of its components the body of the patient, severe kidney disease in violation of their function, pregnancy and breastfeeding, children under 15 years.
With caution is prescribed for arthritis blood clotting and a tendency to bleeding, asthma, diabetes
Diabetes - threatening and incurable disease
Do you have arthritis side effects?
They are quite a bit. In some patients, while taking arthritis can appear stomach pain, bloating, constipation or diarrhea. Sometimes there is dizziness. As with any other drug in the arthritis may be allergic.
Chondroprotector arthritis can greatly facilitate the lives of patients with diseases of the joints and spine.
