Arthrite for Osteoarthritis

Do you have athritis? At my age of 50+, I started having athritis 2 years ago so I know the feeling of pain and hardships.

In a recent press conference organize by MultiCare, a breakthrough phyto-medicine for Osteoarthritis (OA) was introduced to us. It showcased its efficacy with the first local clinical study that shows sustained pain-relief to individuals suffering from the joint disease that affects 11 million Filipinos.*

Arthrite, the first traditional herbal medicine approved by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration  (FDA)  for  joint  pain,  consists  of  14  herbal  components  that  work synergistically to reduce pain caused by osteoarthritis. Apart from pain relief, Arthrite contains  several  active  herbal  ingredients  which  are  responsible  for  reducing  joint inflammation, pain management and improving joint mobility.

“Osteoarthritis has been affecting  millions of lives, limiting  one’s ability to perform daily tasks,  reducing  the  quality  of  life  and  even  contributing  to  the  development  of depression  among elderly  patients.  But  we need not  suffer  all  throughout  our  lives because there is an effective and safe medication that can provide relief  from joint pain, Arthrite is the answer to osteoarthritis!” said Dr. Eduardo Rommel Poblete, Assistant Director and Fellowship Training Officer, Geriatric Center, St. Luke’s Medical Center-Quezon City.

To further prove the efficacy and safety of  Arthrite in providing symptomatic relief  to patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis, a local clinical study was conducted by Dr. Poblete. The clinical trial tested 60 patients, with ages ranging  from 45 years old and up, who were clinically diagnosed with mild-moderate osteoarthritis. For the duration of 8 weeks,  patients  were  prescribed  to  take  2  Arthrite  capsules  after  breakfast  and  2 capsules after dinner, for a total of 120 capsules for a period of 2 months. Patients were also prescribed to take 1 tablet in the morning of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug(NSAID) called Meloxicam as a rescue medication.

As  a  result,  the  physician’s  global  evaluation  showed  that  83%  of  the  patients experienced moderately effective pain relief and 17% had very effective pain relief on first month of observation. During the second month of physician’s global evaluation,45% experienced moderate effectiveness; 30% had very effective pain relief; and 25% were symptom-free. Patient’s global assessment in the first month shows majority (75%)had experienced moderate effectiveness, followed by very high effectiveness (23%) and symptom-free (3.2%).

No  side  effects  were  reported  during  the  clinical  trials  and  the  physicians  global evaluation revealed a positive result from moderately effective to symptoms free after 2months of treatment. Meanwhile, Patient’s global assessment shows beneficial effect specifically  to  pain.  Majority  of  the  patients  were  symptom-free  after  2  months  of treatment.

Due  to  the  effectiveness  of  Arthrite,  it  has  been  recommended  to  be  part  of  the treatment regimen of patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis.
