GLUTES® (Capsules)

For Healthy & Strong spine

Modern lifestyle with little exercise, bad posture and long working hours, have contributed to the prevalence of spondylitis. There are two kinds of spondylitis and they are Cervical and Ankylosing.

Cervical spondylitis is a type of arthritis affecting the intervertebral discs of the cervical spine, producing pain in the neck region. This problem causes pain, stiffness and numbness in the neck - often running down the arms. The main causative factor is the aging of bones and joints. Trauma, incorrect posture of body, prolonged typing or writing with flexion of neck aggravates the symptoms.

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a rheumatic disease that causes arthritis of the spine and sacroiliac joints and can be associated with inflammation of the eyes, lungs, and heart valves. It varies from intermittent episodes of back pain that occur throughout life to a severe chronic disease that attacks the spine, peripheral joints and other body organs, resulting in severe joint and back stiffness, loss of motion and deformity as life progresses.

Our product GLUTES® is a unique blend of Glucosamine, Amla, Ginger and Curcumin. Glucosamine which supports healthy joint functions and helps rebuild the damaged cartilage; Amla fruit (Emblica officinalis Linn) which contributes to healthy bones due to its anti – inflammatory and antioxidant property; potentiated by Ginger (Zingiber officinalis Linn), an herbal bioenhancer. Apart from this bioenhancing property, Ginger possesses anti – inflammatory and analgesic activities and Curcumin (Extracted from Curcuma longa Linn) an active ingredient of spice turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

GLUTES® is generally safe to the patients of spondylitis 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 GLUTES® not only relieve pain & swelling but also helps reversing the disease process.
