Care for bones and Joints
What is arthritis?
The word arthritis literally means joint inflammation ("arthr-" means joint; "-itis" means inflammation). There are many types of arthritis. Most forms of arthritis are chronic, which means they may last a lifetime.

Who gets arthritis?
Nearly 70 million Americans, or one in every four people, have arthritis. It affects people of all ages, but it most often comes on as a person gets older.

How does arthritis make you feel?
Arthritis usually causes stiffness, pain and fatigue. The severity varies from person to person, and even from day to day. In some people, only a few joints are affected and the impact may be small. In other people, the entire body system may be affected.

What are the warning signs of arthritis?
Your joints may feel stiff and be hard to move. You may find that it's hard to do daily tasks you used to do easily, such as climbing stairs or opening a jar. Pain and stiffness may be more severe during certain times of the day or after you've done certain tasks. Some types of arthritis cause swelling, or inflammation. The skin over the joint may appear swollen and red, and feel hot to the touch. Some types of arthritis can also cause fatigue.

Why is better, stronger, healthier cartilage important?
When your cartilage is damaged, either as a result of primary osteoarthritis or flowing from an injury (secondary osteoarthritis), you will suffer the consequences. Since cartilage protects the bones from coming into contact with one another, the opposite result is extremely painful. In a great many cases, it can lead to surgery. As your cartilage begins to lose its "fluid-like" capabilities, the process of osteoarthritis has begun. Whether the result of aging, genetics, overuse or injury some 40 million Americans suffer with this debilitating disease. Whether you suffer this disease or are trying to prevent it, every step that you can take to avoid the consequences is well worth it.

I'm currently taking VIOXX/CELEBREX, can I still take ARTREX in addition to this?
Yes, ARTREX can be started immediately at diagnosis of your condition along with one of the newer NSAIDs such as Vioxx or Celebrex. ARTREX acts along with these drugs to provide a potent and natural anti-inflammatory effect in the control of the disease condition and symptoms. Many of the patients taking these drugs with ARTREX, have been able to decrease and/or wean off the prescription medicines over a period of time, while continuing on ARTREX to give long term maintenance of mobility and pain control, without any side effects.

Are there any side effects to ARTREX?
In some patients, minor incidence of heartburn is seen at the start of ARTREX. This is due to the presence of the active principles of ginger in the formulation, and is an indication of the potency of the product. Hence, it is advised to take ARTREX with food or a glass of milk. In the clinical studies conducted, the incidence of minor side effects such as nausea, abdominal pain, transient skin rash and insomnia were equally seen in both the treatment and placebo groups, hence not significant.

Can I take ARTREX with glucosamine?
Preliminary evidence suggests these supplements, derived from lobster and crab shells, may help relieve arthritis pain, possibly by encouraging cartilage growth. Due to this mechanism of action it usually takes 8-10 weeks to start seeing benefits with glucosamine. ARTREX has an anti-flammatory effect, and in clinical studies has shown to relieve pain as early as 3 weeks from initiation of treatment.
