one capsule twice a day for three months, to be repeated twice during one year. Children over three to take one capsule a day. If required, it is recommended to take one capsule 3 to 4 times a day for one month, then one capsule twice a day for the following two months, so that the whole course is always three months.
We recommend that Colafit should be taken during the three-month break in taking Artrofit®.
Two capsules (a daily dosage) contain:
600mg of glucosamine hydrochloride from the shells of sea crustaceans, 500mg of chondroitin sulphate from shark cartilage and 6mg of freeze-dried collagen, which produces 600mg of high-quality pure collagen in the stomach.
All the three components contained in Artrofit® are involved in the creation of cartilage, articular capsules, ligaments, tendons, bones, skin, nails etc...
ARTROFIT® helps to:
ARTROFIT® is suitable mainly for:
The importance of the individual components of ARTROFIT®
D-glucosamine hydrochloride is obtained from the shells of sea crustaceans. It is naturally contained in any healthy cartilage. Glucosamine encourages the cartilage to create the fundamental building material of the cartilage – proteoglycans and collagen. Proteoglycans with their spatial structure resemble bottle-cleaning brushes. The space between the bristles of this imagined bottle-cleaning brush is filled with collagen. While collagen and elastin are flexible substances, proteoglycans provide the cartilage with strength. In a healthy joint, the combination of proteoglycans and collagen is such that the cartilage is both strong and flexible enough. Glucosamine also has anti-inflammatory effects and prevents the creation of enzymes which can damage the cartilage. With age, however, the ability of the organism to produce the necessary amount of glucosamine is reduced and it is therefore advisable to supplement it in the form of food supplements.
Chondroitin sulphate is obtained from shark cartilage. Its role in the cartilage is similar to that of glucosamine. It is one of the main building materials of cartilage. It has a tremendous ability to bind water. Without chondroitin the cartilage would dry out and its structure would collapse. It protects the cartilage from substances which can damage it. Research done on snoring has produced interesting results as well: people who took chondroitin sulphate reduced their time snoring by one third.
Why are these two substances with similar effect contained in one product?
Collagen – pure crystalline freeze-dried bovine collagen with 99.9% purity. Up to 40% of cartilage is made of collagen. The diet of a modern man contains a pitifully small amount of collagen, and even if it does contain collagen it is usually impaired by heat treatment. Collagen used in ARTROFIT® has been patented to guarantee its safety and high purity - 99.9%. The conservation process used is lyophilization, which is the most gentle but also the most expensive method of conservation. The collagen is deep frozen and the ice is gradually sublimated in a vacuum. This method of conservation ensures a high quality and long life. We need a great amount of collagen because up to 50% of protein in the body is made up of collagen. Our organism uses collagen in such a way to avoid harming the main functions of our body. Therefore we should not underestimate the intake of collagen and should take seriously even those often inconspicuous signs which tell us that there is something going on in our bodies, for example a deterioration in the condition of skin, hair falling out, brittle nails, cracking joints or backache. Freeze-dried collagen is also interesting for its ability to bind water in the body from the digestive system where 3mg of freeze-dried collagen (the contents of one capsule) create about 300mg of high-purity collagen gel in the body.
