ARTTIS (Capsules)

Degenerative and inflammatory diseases of joints are growing exponentially world over. Though many treatments like NSAID (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs) etc are available to date, people search for various alternatives, as regular usage of NSAID & DMRDs (Disease Modifying Antirheumatological Drugs) is associated with ADRs (adverse drug reactions) & toxicity ranging from gastrointestinal bleed (Stomach bleed) to Nephrotoxicity (toxic to kidneys).

Our product Arttis is a unique blend of Glucosamine and Boswellia serrata (the potent anti-inflammatory herb) potentiated by Ginger (an herbal bioenhancer) and Curcumin (orange yellow pigment found in turmeric). Glucosamine helps rebuild the damaged cartilage 1-7; Boswellia serrata 8-12 and Curcumin 13-16 helps relieve pain and swelling; Ginger is one among the Trikatu (Three herbs made into a group) described in Ayurveda, Traditional Indian System of Medicine. Various animal and clinical studies have substantially proved the ancient claims of trikatu as bioenhancer. Ginger, being a natural bioenhancer 18 makes available higher amount of the other three ingredients in the formulation to the body by minimizing metabolic degradation. Apart from this bioenhancing property, Ginger possesses anti – inflammatory and analgesic activities 17, 19, 20.

Arttis helps in rebuilding and remodeling the damaged cartilage of joints. Arttis can maintain the integrity of the joints and strengthen them. Arttis can relieve the pain & swelling associated with arthritis.

Arttis is generally safe to the patients of arthritis and does not cause stomach problems as those of painkillers / NSAIDs. Further, NSAIDs do not act on the disease process but merely mask the symptoms where as Arttis not only relieve pain & swelling but also helps reverse the disease process
