Arthro-5 180 capsules - glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin, MSM, ASU, and hyaluronic acid | Power Supplements
Arthro-5 is the most complete and strongest supplement in its category of joint protection.
In order to develop Arthro-5, exercise physiologist Kris Kuiper evaluated countless well known and lesser known ingredients. Based on recommendations from fellow scientists he selected 6 ingredients that complement each other.
The combination of these ingredients in the correct dosage makes Arthro-5 one of a kind.
The most striking characteristics of Arthro-5 :
- 6 main ingredients that complement each other perfectly : Glucosamine sulfate (Bioiberica), Chondroitine sulfate (CS BioActive®), ASU (AvoVida™), MSM (OptiMSM®) and Hyaluronic acid (Hyal-Joint™).
- with added vitamin C that supports collagen formation and normal functioning of collagen
- high correct dose for each ingredient. For each daily dosage of 6 capsules : 1500 mg glucosamine sulfate, 1200mg chondroitin sulfate, 300mg ASU, 1500mg MSM and 80mg hyaluronic acid.
- produced by a well-respected Western European producer of nutritional supplements, following the most strict GMP- and HACCP-guidelines.
- quality is being tested regularly by independent laboratory NutriControl
- excellent price-quality ratio as most other similar products sell for a minimum of €75
- delivery as a capsule, which allows for faster absorption by the body, leading to less stomach - or intestinal complaints
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Plastics in our bodyOnly fairly recently we have become aware of the dangers of plastics in our environment.
For a long time we thought these plastics would not be of any concern to us. However, invariably, most plastics end up somewhere in the environment: they sit at the bottom of the sea, mix into beach sand, and blow in the wind. They’re also inside us.
It's possible that humans may be consuming anywhere from 39 to 52 thousand microplastic particles a year. With added estimates of how much microplastic might be inhaled, that number is more than 74 thousand.
People who drink only bottled water ingest an additional 90 thousand particles.
When researchers from Johns Hopkins looked at the impact of eating seafood contaminated with microplastics, they too found the accumulated plastic could damage the immune system and upset a gut's balance.
Scientists are scrambling to understand the dose at which microplastics start to have noticeable health effects. Like air pollution or harmful construction materials, those who have more exposure or pre-existing conditions may be less able to tolerate plastic.
Return to sports after knee surgery, is it possible?
Whether you are a top athlete or an amateur, it will happen to you do one day or later: you will have a sports injury.
One of the most common dramatic sports injuries is a torn anterior cruciate ligament, abbreviated to ACL.
When you tear your anterior cruciate ligament or ACL your knee swells with blood. When the knee swells, that triggers a cascade of events which causes you to lose quadriceps strength. In addition you will notice that your thigh looks a lot smaller than the other one. That is due to atrophy of the quadriceps which occurs after an ACL injury.
In addition to the loss of quadriceps strength and atrophy which accompanies an ACL tear you will also notice loss of motion and in most cases a fair amount of pain.
Many athletes choose to have ACL surgery to improve their chance of returning to the same level of performance as they had before.
The sad reality is that many athletes can not return to sports after ACL surgery. The reasons for this vary. As such, there is a lot of research taking place to improve your chance for a successful return to sports after an ACL reconstruction.
But first the question whether ACL surgery should be done.
