Common questions about hyaluronic acid treatment of joint complaints

General

  • What is hyaluronic acid?

    Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that can carry 1,000 times its own weight of water. It is naturally present in the joints, both in cartilage and as a lubricant in the synovial fluid. It can be given as a dietary supplement, and provided it is of high quality and has a high molecular weight it has a positive effect on lubrication of the joints, has an inhibiting effect on inflammation and in most cases reduces pain.

Use

  • How quickly will I notice the effect of Artro Go® ?

    In most cases an improvement is experienced within the first two to three weeks.

  • Can I take hyaluronic acid regularly?

    Yes, continuous taking of hyaluronic acid is recommended as it lubricates the joints while at the same time suppressing any inflammation and consequently reducing the pain.

  • How many tablets should I take?

    The recommended daily dose is two tablets daily, divided into two doses. You should take one in the morning and one in the evening, during or after a meal. Swallow them with a glass of water. When the pain has gone, reduce your intake to one tablet daily.

  • How long is a treatment?

    This is entirely individual, continuous daily taking may sometimes be needed to maintain normal joint function.

  • Can I change the recommended daily dose?

    For best results, you need to take two capsules. This applies particularly during the first three months. We recommend that, depending on how you feel, you reduce the dose to one capsule daily as soon as the pain decreases. You can always raise the dose again if your joint pain returns.

  • Does hyaluronic acid have any side effects?

    There are no known side effects of hyaluronic acid.

  • Is it possible to take Artro Go® together with medicines?

    We do not know of any interactions between Artro Go® and other medicines. We recommend that you talk to your doctor before planning to use Artrohealth© together with medicines.

  • Why should hyaluronic acid be taken very day?

    When inflammation starts in the joints, very small damage may occur to the structures of the joints (which can be measured at the biochemical level). The inflammation in the synovial fluid reduces the molecular weight of hyaluronic acid resulting in a reduced viscoelasticity of the fluid. When hyaluronic acid is taken in tablet form it is absorbed into the blood via the intestine. From the blood, the hyaluronic acid reaches the joint, where it attaches to specific receptors in the joint capsule. The joint capsule cells are stimulated to form new hyaluronic acid, and as a result normal function of the joints is promoted. The shock-absorbing and lubricating function of the synovial fluid is consequently maintained.
