Does Arthri-D Work?
We can't go through all of the ingredients here, but what we can do is cover the major theories behind Arthri-D. Many of these theories are presented by similar supplements with pseudo-medical jargon, which is very difficult for many consumers to decipher. In fact, in a state of confusion, many customers are more likely to make an impulse buy, and to believe things like outrageous testimonials claims. Because these consumers are concerned for their health, they're willing to take any leap of logic in order to create a possible benefit, or to relieve extreme pain.
So, does Arthri-D do anything which will accomplish the relief of extreme pain? In short, no. It is true that Arthri-D contains an undisclosed amount of both glucosamine and chondroitin, and these have been connected to a growth of cartilage in some clinical tests. In some cases, a lack of cartilage can lead to general joint pain and inflammation, which contribute to arthritis. Arthri-D also claims to relieve inflammation by including ingredients such as green lipped mussel which contains omega-3. Although omega-3 has been connected to the relief of inflammation, the amount contained in Arthri-D is not likely to make any change.
Arthri-D may do some good if it actually communicates glucosamine and chondroitin across the digestive barrier. Many consumers are not aware that substances such as glucosamine and chondroitin only have a 20% bioavailability which means that 80% of the material which is paid for and digested is not actually used in the blood stream. In order to be sure that you are even digesting enough of the substances, you have to take huge amounts. Many sufferers are curious about why this is necessary, since it doesn't seem to be a part of the normal diet. Since there is some science behind taking glucosamine and chondroitin, and since these substances are contained within Arthri-D, although the amount was not disclosed, it is certainly possible that there may be some improvement in the health joints over time. However, this small improvement may not actually create a noticeable change in the levels of pain experienced on a day-to-day basis.
