Arth-A 250/200 mg Tablet, 1 strip
ARTH-A tablet is a balanced combination of two leading natural supplements of healthy cartilage Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Glucosamine is a naturally occurring amino sugar of cartilage that provides the basic raw material needed by the body to manufacture joint cartilage. And Chondroitin is another naturally occurring mucopolysaccharide of cartilage that stimulates cartilage production, inhibits cartilage destroying enzymes, draws fluid to the cells and helps lubricate the joints. They work synergistically together to help stimulate the regeneration and prevent the destruction of connective tissues (e.g., cartilage, bone, tendon etc.).
