OsteoVantiv® from Metagenics



 Joint pain and stiffness can significantly affect the quality of our day-to-day life.  Many times, this chronic pain is caused by arthritis.   Arthritis which comes from the Greek work ‘arthro’ which means “joint”, and ‘itis’ which means “inflammation” and is a leading cause of disability in women in Canada.  In fact, 2 out of 3 Canadians who suffer from arthritis are women.1   Two types of arthritis cause joint pain.  The first is osteoarthritis (OA) and the second is rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

OA is a degenerative joint disease, which can benefit from OsteoVantiv® from Metagenics.  RA is a chronic, systemic autoimmune disease requiring different treatment.

OsteoVantiv® from Metagenics is designed to comfort painful knee joints, promote flexibility and support healthy joints.  Exercise, diet and use of natural health products have been shown to be effective for managing the symptoms of osteoarthritis and improving overall joint function.

OsteoVantiv® contains two key ingredients; Hops (Humulus lupulus) cone extract and Chicken cartilage (gallus gallus).  The chicken cartilage contains unhydrolyzed collagen type II (UC-II®), a key protein known to help relieve joint pain.

According to Metagenics in one study they determined that OsteoVantiv® was more effective at positively influencing knee extension. When compared to glucosamine and chondroitin as a treatment OsteoVantiv® was found to show significant joint pain improvement.

If you suffer from OA and would like to try OsteoVantiv® you can order it directly from our office or call us at 416.742.7318.  Recommended dosage is 1 tablet twice daily with food.

Thanks for taking the time to browse our new website, we hope you’re pleased with the results.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in the clinic soon.


Have a great autumn.
