Osteoarthritis, also called joint disease or Osteoarthrosis, is the most common form of arthritis, currently affecting as many as 40 million people in the US. It is characterized by a gradual loss of cartilage, and overgrowth of bone within one or more joints. The cartilage surface, once firm and smooth, becomes soft, rough and irregular. Erosion of cartilage may continue until bony surfaces come in contact with each other. OA can occur in almost any joint, most commonly the knee, hip, spine, hands and feet.
OA is a slow, progressive disease that begins at the cellular level in the joint cartilage, often with traumatic events. The exact cause of cartilage deterioration is unknown, but is generally related to single or repetitive injuries, normal wear and tear over time, and chemical changes within the joint.
OA can worsen due to continued wear and tear, including excessive weight bearing and overuse of the joint. However, our body’s self-repair system might also be to blame. When joints are damaged, the body starts an inflammatory response, which, itself, can damage cartilage.
Currently, there is no cure for OA, but a great deal can be done to prevent the illness from happening, or slow down its progression, in order to improve the functional abilities to perform daily activities.
Arthroben is a synergistic Medical Food product that helps reduce cartilage and joint inflammation, as well as providing all the nutrition needed by bone and cartilage in order to maintain their healthy state, without the side effects of Anti-inflammatory medications.
