About Cartigen DUO Tablet 10’s
Cartigen DUO Tablet 10’s belongs to a class of medications called ‘non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID)/ anti-inflammatory and antirheumatic agents, non-steroids’ primarily taken for reducing the pain of osteoarthritis (OA) in specific large and small joints. Osteoarthritis is a chronic (lifelong) joint condition in which a Glucosamine sulfate (a chemical found in the human body, especially in joints) gets reduced. The body uses this fluid to produce other chemicals required to make ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and the thick fluid surrounding joints. When this chemical get reduces, then the cartilage breaks down and becomes thin which causes friction between the bones leading to wear and tear (damage) of the joint tissues leading to pain, stiffness, inflammation, and reduced locomotion.
The Cartigen DUO Tablet 10’s compromises two medicines, namely Diacerein and Glucosamine. Diacerein restricts the action of a protein responsible for causing inflammation and destruction of cartilage or osteoarthritis. At the same time, Glucosamine sulfate is a natural protein found in the body used by the body to produce various chemicals responsible for building ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and the thick fluid surrounding joints. Taking Cartigen DUO Tablet 10’s may either enhance the cartilage and fluid surrounding joints or prevent both components’ breakdown. Both in combination helps in the formation of cartilage (the soft tissue that cushions the joints) and makes the joints lubricated for better movement and flexibility. Cartigen DUO Tablet 10’s relieves pain, thereby improving joint function and helping an individual restore his/her quality of life. It also increases the cushioning and lubrication of joints that provide relief in pain and easily do physical activity.
