Carathron® Capsules to Support Joint Health

Posted by Dilip Reddy Koothuru on

Are you suffering from joint pain, stiffness and inflammation?

Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints, surrounding tendons, ligaments and cartilage. The symptoms of arthritis vary depending on the type, and include pain, stiffness and swelling of the joints, deformity, and/or a diminished range of motion.

So what does Cararthron® contain and what does it do?

A blend of Scutellaria baicalensis and Acacia catechu, both of which are known to have anti-inflammatory properties for a very long time. Scutellaria baicalensis contains the flavonoids baicalin, baicalein and wogonin, and Acacia catechu contains the flavonoids catechin and epicatechin. They inhibit THREE enzymatic pathways involved in inflammation which are known as COX-1, COX-2, and LOX. By inhibiting these pathways, they slow down the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. 

Cararthron® provides short to mid-term relief of pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis.

Each capsule contains a blend of:

  • Scutellaria Baicalensis root extract (equivalent to dry root 2500mg)
  • Acacia Catechu herb extract dry concentrate (equivalent to dry heartwood 715mg)

Cararthron® is free from dairy, egg, gluten, lactose, nuts, sugar, wheat, yeast, artificial colouring, flavouring or preservatives.

It has passed a strict process and has been designated as GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) by FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
