ArthroFast is a synergistic combination of selected high grade herbs formulated to offer relief from the symptoms of arthritis.
As a person ages, the surface layers of cartilage at the joints which cushions the joints often loses its ability to support healthy cellular growth and eventually breaks down and wears away. In addition, the synovial fluid that lubricates these joints also deteriorates. This synovial fluid reduces friction in the joints allowing for effortless motion and not only lubricates the joints but it also acts as a comfortable shock absorber. This break-down condition, called osteoarthritis or wear-and-tear arthritis, often allows bones under the cartilage to rub together and cause pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint.
Arthrofast contains the following selected herbs:
Manganese is a mineral essential to the formation of connective tissue (such as cartilage). Manganese is extremely helpful for sufferers of Arthritis and also aids in keeping bones strong and preventing Osteoporosis.
Solomon’s Seal tightens or loosens (as needed) tendons, ligaments and connective tissues. It reduces inflammation and increases the natural balance of synovial fluid as well as helps the cartilage re-gain some flexibility.
Horsetail’s high silica content helps to rebuild damaged cartilage and structures and may replace lost silicon in the affected bones It strengthens connective tissue, bones and cartilage. Horsetail is rich in minerals, particularly silica deposited in its stems.
