Dear Tango, My problem began December 2001 after I tripped and landed heavily on my left knee. It immediately swelled to the size of a large grapefruit and I couldn't move. I have been in constant pain since then. I've had to be careful getting into bed since, if my knees touched or if I turned on either side, my left knee would really ache. I haven't had a full night's sleep since then. I couldn't walk fast and I couldn't reach to the side (putting dishes into the dishwasher, reaching into the cupboard for a dish, etc.) without my knee hurting. It was difficult even getting into and out of my car as I have to sit down as my right leg goes in and then twist the left leg to come in after. Cold weather also really bothers my knee. Last night (Oct. 20) we had our first snowstorm of the season. In winter it gets to 17 degrees BELOW zero here so even in the house it can be chilly all the time. I'm really in pain when it's cold. I'm very reluctant to go up or down stairs without a handrail as I have found my left knee can suddenly go out and I'll start to fall. I have become very depressed after six years of pain. I'm 79 years old and fed up with cold weather and being in pain every day. And then you came along looking for people to try out ArthriPhase. I began by taking 2 capsules of ArthriPhase before dinner on October 12th. Truthfully, I didn't expect much of any reaction (even though I use your ImmunoPhase and know how wonderful that is). I went to bed as usual, being very careful not to hit my left knee. When I woke up I thought it was the middle of the night. I was astonished to see it was 6:45 in the morning and for the first time in years I had slept the entire night without being awakened by pain. My dog Henry was wondering when I was getting up as we are usually outside by 6 a.m. I got up gingerly, but nothing hurt. We went outside where the two dogs raced back and forth. I was walking very carefully, watching out for the rocks on the ground but then I discovered that I could walk faster with more confidence. I've been taking ArthriPhase - 2 capsules before breakfast and two before dinner - for the last 8 days. My depression has gone, I can clean my house as before (I had trouble pushing my heavy vacuum cleaner around) and I'm playing with my dogs again. And for the first time in 6 years I am able to sit and cross my legs without any pain. I really feel very much better and hope it continues. While waiting for more samples of ArthriPhase I tried cutting back on the amount of capsules per day. I found I could easily take just one capsule at breakfast, a second 9 1/2 hours later and a third 9 1/2 hours after that. I don't know what you expected, but I can already envision taking just one or two capsules daily and eventually being able to go without the capsules for a period of time. Thanks for coming up with this product and letting me test it. Obviously ArthriPhase works. I feel so much better. This is going to be a wonderful product for many, many people. What is Tango going to test next? Miriam Fidler
I read about an older lady who started to walk again after she started taking ArthriPhase. Before taking ArthriPhase she couldn't straighten her elbow out, but afterwards she was able to use her arm again. She was about 85 years old. That really got my attention and that is why I started using ArthriPhase. I had some health-related issues. My joints were bone-to-bone. I also have some slipped discs, that caused lots of pain. I also can't stand for very long. The feeling has spread from my feet up to my elbow. I feel like joint problems have taken over my body. I used to take pain medication every day, to deal with the pain throughout my body. To get out of bed, I used to have to swing my feet and legs out to just get up. I couldn't use my hands for anything; I couldn't open a jar because my fingers would not meet. I couldn't button my clothes, or open a bottle or write a letter. I needed one of those special large pens to write with. When I started taking ArthriPhase, I noticed many changes. I first noticed it in my feet. The discomfort was almost gone! I had a car accident in the past that made it where couldn't turn my head without discomfort. Now I can turn my head freely. Before, I needed to have someone help take care of me. But now with ArthriPhase, I can take care of myself, including cooking for myself. ArthriPhase has allowed me to become independent again. The less medication I'm on now, the better I feel overall. I feel like it's helped my whole body. It helps me sleep better, too. I forgot to order ArthriPhase recently, and then I noticed all my old issues were coming back after only five days! It got to where I couldn't hardly walk anymore, just like before. I had to limp again on one foot, and on one knee, which was very affected. Now I'm going to keep taking ArthriPhase for the rest of my life because it is great. With ArthriPhase, I don't limp anymore. When you're in discomfort throughout your body, it affects the whole system. My inside feels so much better now. I couldn't get around the house without a walker, either. Now the walker stays in the car, as I no longer need it anymore. That is how much ArthriPhase has helped me. I know it's hard to believe this because it's too good to be true, but it is. P.F. Nettle
Dear Tango, Forty-two years ago, I was exercising one of my polo ponies when he reared and threw me. As a result, I suffered a severe compound fracture of my left ankle. After my surgeon screwed and wired the pieces together (I still have some of the wire in my ankle) I spent three months in a wheel chair, two months on crutches and two months of painful physiotherapy before I was able to go back to playing polo. Ten months later during an international match, my left leg was caught between my horse and my opponent's horse and was so badly twisted that the ankle broke again (I wasn't even thrown). My surgeon warned me that because of the two breaks I would develop a severe joint condition in my ankle. As the years passed it turned out that he was absolutely correct. Several years ago I had to give up my daily hour's walk in the park. The pain killers had such bad side effects on my stomach that I had to take medicine to counteract them. I finally decided that I would try an alternative solution. Well, I am almost through my second bottle of ArthriPhase, and while it is going to be a long treatment after so many years of discomfort, I was so encouraged that I actually went for a five minute walk this week. I realized that I was pushing my luck, but I will be glad to continue to share my results after a several months of using ArthriPhase. Sincerely, Robert Thank you Robert, We are also hearing from others about benefits for old injuries, enabling our customers to get back function and return to favorite activities. If you have had initial results, continued use should lead to further improvements and we wish you speedy results. I take special interest in fractures, as that was a specialty of mine in sports medicine acupuncture. I have also been around horses all my life, though not polo ponies. Regards, John Steinke, L.Ac.
Hi folks, Steven here, I am 50 years old and I have issues with my knee. Before taking ArthriPhase I was taking collagen and Glucosamine Chondroitin w/ MSM for relief. Those supplements can only help you to a point and I still felt I needed more to get over the discomfort. ArthriPhase is getting me there. I'm not 100% yet but I've only been taking it for 3 weeks and I've stopped wearing my knee brace. My job requires me to be on my feet all day and I can feel the difference when I walk fast, turn, and go about my daily business. I forgot it once and my knee limited my movement â€“ I had 2 speeds, slow and stop. I went snowboarding last weekend. The mountain wore me out but my knee was not an issue. The idea of ! limited mobility was not an appealing one. After some research I found a couple of joint products. My discomfort started in Sept. of 2015, so for the last 5 months I have been battling it, worrying that I might need some sort of operation on my knee. I don' t trust conventional doctors or there medicines these days so if I can solve this problem myself, I can save myself time and money, then it's worth it. ArthriPhase was the first one I tried and it's working. Itâ€™s only been 21 days but my knee feels so much better. I want to thank the folks at Tango for allowing regular folks like myself. Elderly people I know tell me not to get old, there's no way around it. Time marches on. Live your life to the fullest and if life slows you down, talk to the folks at Tango. Thank you everyone, god bless and take care of you and yours.
My results using ArthiPhase were immediate and nothing short of miraculous. First I was shocked, totally unbelieving and then absolutely amazed! It had been twenty months since an orthopedic surgeon told me that my left knee was, "bone on bone," that a brace might prolong the need but that a knee replacement was my only option, long term. My right knee wasn't much better, there was still some "cushion" there but - perhaps NSAIDS, that might also hasten my death, could offer some relief. When I received my ArthiPhase I took the two free capsules you sent along before before going to bed and for the first time in many months I slept all night without being awakened by the knee pain that demanded movement to a "better" position. A fluke, I was telling myself; this just can't be, for almost two years these Seventy-seven year old knees have gotten worse while I took what I was told were the best, natural supplements available. The following morning and twice daily since, I have taken ArthiPhase and in less than two weeks, I was very close to completely pain free and my range of knee motion improved dramatically. Thank you Tango.
Dear Tango, At the age of 17 I suffered my first case of whiplash in a car accident. I'm 55 years old now and have experienced a total of 12 neck injuries. Since I am very athletic the pain has had a major impact on my mobility. I began working with Dr. Mitch Fleisher as our family physician about 3 years ago and he recommended that I start taking your ArthriPhase formula for my neck. Now, I have complete mobility, and am comfortable. I wake up every morning and take my ArthriPhase and I am comfortable the rest of the day. Throughout my life, since early childhood, I have also had sinus issues. One sinus specialist diagnosed me as having the worst sinuse issues he'd ever seen! Dr. Fleisher recommended his three phases program, and had me take ImmunoPhase, BronchoPhase, and AllerPhase. I have had great results from following this program and can finally breathe clearly without any effort. I am very grateful to your company and your products, and to Dr. Fleisher for his wonderful medical care, and to God for giving us these great herbs. Today I am athletic again, and can enjoy each day pain free. C.C.
Dear Tango, As a dental hygienist, the proper functioning of my wrist, hands, and fingers are vital to my profession. About a year ago, I was experiencing stiff wrist and fingers upon awakening and this eventually continued throughout the day. After the stiffness, pain set in. Due to past experience, I knew that modern medications were not my solution. They merely masked the symptoms, let the source of the problem get worse, and gave me digestive problems (aggravating my liver and kidneys). Frankly, at age 49, I was petrified of not being able to work, if this continued. I was delighted when I received information from the Health Sciences Institute informing me of the effectiveness of ArthriPhase. Other letters on your website convinced me and I ordered a bottle of ArthriPhase. I am delighted to report that halfway through the bottle, I felt better and I could bend my fingers and close my hands. The stiffness disappeared completely after I began the second bottle. Thank you for your wonderful product and much continued success! Sylvia D. - Montreal
I had joint issues in my whole body. I heard about ArthriPhase. I'm usually very skeptical because I've ordered things in the past that didn't work. My hands and knees were so bad that I was getting shots. I was having a hard time closing my hands, and stepping off the curb or stepping up a stair. I was using a cane and my doctors were suggesting knee surgery, but I was fighting that idea tooth and nail. I called and ordered ArthriPhase. By the second week of taking it, my whole body felt better, and it's continued to feel better the longer I take it. I guess the more you take it, the better you feel. I gave a bottle of ArthriPhase to my daughter-in-law and she's doing much better too, so I just told my friend at the country club about it and she's going to try ArthriPhase and see how it works for her. I know that everyone is different, but ArthriPhase sure worked for me. Sincerely, Betty Shaffer
Thanks John for this opportunity, I am honored and excited to share my review and help other pain sufferers. I have experienced tremendous hip and foot joint issues for over ten years. I have also tried various prescription meds, NSAIDs, glucosimine, and Omega 3 products, along with creams and ointments, and NONE of them come close to Arthriphase. A dream of mine during these past ten years is to be able to jog again. I noticed increased range of motion in my toes and feet within 24 hours after taking your product. Now, after 3 weeks, I can stand on my toes with ZERO pain! My dream will come true with your product. I discovered Arthriphase through HSI. Thank you for this amazing product! Karl P. Elkview WV
I started having discomfort and stiffness in my fingers over a year ago. I started taking two different formulas containing New Zealand green-lipped mussel, along with chondroitin and glucosamine. The green-lipped mussel was by far the best, but I still had residual discomfort and stiffness every morning. Since I was not on meds I believe the discomfort indicated residual activity of my joint issues. After I began taking ArthriPhase (2 capsules, twice a day) 99% of my discomfort and stiffness went away. Now I experience the same level of improvement with only one capsule, twice daily. ArthriPhase has completely relieved my discomfort and allowed me to avoid using drugs. Many Thanks. Howard E.
My husband was hit by a vehicle at his job in 2014. The damage he had was a fractured lumbar on his back. Ever since the accident, his back was always very uncomfortable. He would have to do these stretches every day upon getting up every morning. His discomfort was not getting any better so I did a search online for natural supplements that could help him relief the discomfort and I found Arthriphase for him. He has been taking them daily for the past 2 months and he felt relief immediately upon taking them. We are so grateful for these supplements as he is able to carry on his normal daily life and work skills like he did before the accident. We highly recommend these to anyone.
Dear Tango, I recently finished my second bottle of ArthriPhase and I am very glad to report that it has helped me! My issues seems to bother my knees and hips more than the other joints. So imagine my surprise and delight when I realized my knees were not hurting nearly as much now when I climb steps. It's always a good feeling when you don't feel the normal discomfort usually associated with an activity. I have tried many of the other products on the market and ArthriPhase has helped me more than any of the others. I will be staying with ArthriPhase. I would gladly recommend it to others who need help. Sincerely, Nancy Martens
I am an 84-year-old woman with joint issues in my fingers. The pain would wake me up every night between 3 and 4 am so I could never get a good night's sleep. ArthriPhase worked beautifully the first time I used it. Now I take 2 capsules of ArthriPhase just before going to bed and I sleep through the night. That's amazing for me. I tried everything else, and nothing worked. I gave two of my pills to my sister who also has joint issues. They worked overnight and the next day she asked for two more. I told her she should order some herself as I did not want to run out before I bought a new supply.
Dear Tango, I was scheduled to have knee replacement surgery when a friend of mine called and told me about your all natural supplement, ArthriPhase. I thought What do I have to lose? and immediately ordered two bottles. After six weeks of taking two capsules, twice a day, a miracle happened. No more discomfort and no knee replacement surgery! I now remain comfortable taking just two capsules daily. I ordered a years supply after my doctor said if it works keep taking it and let's see what happens. By the way, my sleep has never been better. Patrick OKeefe
My husband has suffered from joint pain for many years. He was injured in a car accident and also had a large barrel fall on him when he was 20. He's lived on Aleve since forever! I bought a bottle of ArthriPhase for him to try and he is very pleased with the results...plus he stopped taking statins as that was not working on his cholesteral levels and caused a lot of pain. We will be buying more Arthriphase! Wish it came in a larger size and a cheaper price...like the Osteophase.
I've had aches in my right knee and in both feet. for a few year now. I've tried numerous over-the-counter remedies, and nothing really helped that much. Then, a friend of ours told about me about something that worked when other products failed. That product is ArthriPhase. I tried it, and in only 2 weeks I felt an improvement in my mobility without discomfort. I am out and reordering this product, and will continue to use it indefinitely. It is truly amazing - WOW! Ron B.
I only take half the recommended dose which is one twice a day. It has REALLY helped to alleviate the joint issues I get with the seasonal change into humid weather late spring and through-out the summer. It helps maintain very minimal joint stiffness (if I exercised more would probably get rid of that!) and basically NO discomfort in my joints. I'm very thankful for this product! If it wasn't for the wrinkles I see in the mirror, I'd forget I'm almost 70!
My husband tried this product "just to see" if it would help his joint issues. Within 2 days he was saying "This might be helping". After a week or 10 days he asked if we had another bottle. He has suffered for years with his back and neck, as he was in a terrible car accident when he was 19. Now the only complaint he has is in his big toe !:) Of course I bought 6 more bottles immediately. GREAT PRODUCT!
Dear Tango, I took ArthriPhase for 20 days, and on the 21st day I woke up with no pain in my right hip. Both of my hips have been replaced and I have had hip bursitis and tendon and muscle strains in my legs. I am still expecting all pain in my left leg and hip to disappear as I continue to take ArthriPhase. Thanks for making such a great product available. I am a satisfied customer. Gratefully, W.S.
My husband takes 4 caps per day and is feeling so much better. He has suffered from joint pain for many years (car accident and a 50 gallon barrel incident in his youth). ArthriPhase has made his life so much better! He can sleep longer and work around the house and yard without terrible pain in his neck, shoulders and back. Great Product! Con-It's a little expensive now that he's retiring.
I have been taking ArthiPhase now for over 2 months and the results are wonderful. I have been fighting discomfort in one knee and one hand for some time. I am taking 2 pills in the morning and two at bed time. I wake up feeling comfortable and remain so all day. I am now able to walk and also have re-gained the use of my hand. This is not cheep, but worth every penny.John Rowe
Both thumb joints have bothered me for some time, but I was leery of any medication so did not want to go that route. When it became more and more difficult to do simple things like open jars, I decided to try ArthriPhase. It has helped a lot. I tried taking just 2 per day, but now I take 2 twice a day. Hopefully soon I will be able to just take 1 twice a day.
My husband and I have issues with joint and back discomfort. We have tried many different products and have found your product to be the most effective to date. It is fairly expensive as we each use 4 per day and therefore a bottle doesn't go very far with only 60 caps and we need 4 bottles each month. We would like to see a better discount for long term use.
Your company and product is first class. I have used this for nearly 1 1/2 years and I am more than pleased. Once I ordered two items from Tango and when I received the package only 1 item was in the box. I called and received immediate response and to compensate me for my issue they sent another bottle free of charge. Fabulous customer service.
Completed taking all 60 caps and find some improvement to my right hand joints, in particular the 4th finger. A little growth, as big as half a rice grain on index finger disappeared and has not appeared again. Would like to order another bottle. Also, consuming Osteophase at the same time, and feel that my legs movements are lighter.
Achiness from serious post injury joint issues can take over my day. I was doubtful that one little sample dose would even make a dent in my level of discomfort, which on a scale of 10 at its worst is at 5 to 6 on average, but wow ... finally achieved a whole day of relief! Will be ordering more of this well put together concoction!
Have only used this product for one month, I am 83 and get up in the morning with hip discomfort and have shoulder discomfort at night. My hip discomfort in the morning has subdued as well as the shoulder issue. Will keep using and see what happens. My husband, on the other hand, has not had any benefit as yet, he has back issues.
My husband has issues with his hip. He started with one bottle, took it, and did get relief. After being off ArthriPhase for a few days, his symptoms returned so I ordered more. He reports that this does indeed help him, although it does not completely eliminate his discomfort.
My husband has joint issues in his shoulder, neck and back. ArthriPhase helps with the discomfort. When he's been working outside-shoveling, painting, lawnmowing, etc, he will also use the electronic pulse massager at the end of the day. It all helps.
I've had 3 operations on each knee and worn knee braces for over 30 years for relief when I play golf. On 7/2/2013 I started taking ArthriPhase for everyday and have not worn a knee brace since. I'm a believer - This stuff works!
So far ArthriPhase is helping my knees the discomfort is pretty well under control. I will continue taking it and get back with you with further progress, thanks as well for taking times to answer my concerns. God Bless you.
It is nice to have relief. It took 2 weeks to finally feel relief but my hip feels very good and I will reorder today. I don't like taking drugs so it's wonderful to have something else and recommend ArthriPhase to anyone.
After trying the sample I did notice a slight degree of less discomfort in my problem hip area. I think it would be necessary to take more for a longer period of time for the full benefits.
I've been using Arthriphase for several years and I can honestly say it made a big difference in my ability to move. I take it for my knees and I can tell the difference when I run out!
I noticed a big change almost immediately after starting ArthriPhase. I had been having some stiffness in my hands and this has resolved it completely. I plan to continue to use it!
This really works for me, but I need to take 2 caps, twice a day. I have been having increasing discomfor in my thumb joints but this helps more than anything else I've tried.
I have been using this capsule twice a day for a couple of weeks and believe that I have less discomfort in my hands. I will reorder soon if this continues.
The free arthiphase I received was crushed in the plastic bag and not usable. The arthriphase I use daily seems to be helping. Thank you for this product.
After only two weeks, the ArthriPhase seems to be helping my wife. Her joint discomfort is so bad that the slight improvement has lifted both our spirits.
Tried one bottle. Took two capsules 2x daily. Experiencing relief in neck and shoulder and increased mobility. Will continue. Already ordered more.
Discomfort in my knees seem to be down since I started taking ArthiPhase two months ago. I hope in another month it will be totally gone.
I have found this to be very helpful for my thumbs. I have to take 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening, but it relieves my issues.
The capsules are easy to take. I've experienced no side effects. They do seem to be helping my knee. I will be ordering more.
Got for husband who had a lot of pain in hands. Taking every day..no symptoms.
so far it seems to work, still waitng till after my second bottle
I am getting great results from using ArthriPhase.
Arthriphase. Helps but does not make me pain free.
My hands, ankles, and knees feel so much better.
This works awesome for joint discomfort.
Using - hope to see improvement
Featured negative reviews:
Have been using Arthriphase for 28 day for RA. As of yet I have not noticed any difference over the other products I have used but I do know that it sometimes takes a longer time frame to begin to get relief so I am committed to a 3 month course of ArthriPhase.
I have problems with arthritis but unfortunately after using the bottle of ArthriPhase I have not noticed any difference in the pain that I have experienced.
I have not noticed any improvement at the end of the test. It doesn't work for me and I will not renew.
No noticeable improvement as of yet. Will continue to assess effectiveness of ArthriPhase.
I had hoped that ArthriPhase would relieve my joint discomfort. So far, no difference.
I find no benefit from taking this for almost 3 weeks now, sorry.

Joint problems generally involve the loss of articular cartilage, the smooth, slippery tissue covering the ends of bones that allows them to slide smoothly across each other as joints bend and flex. Joint issues begin as a normal inflammatory response that, for reasons not fully understood, results in changes to articular cartilage that causes the tissues to soften and swell up, making cartilage more susceptible to normal stresses. Continued use of the joint further inflames the surrounding synovial membranes and irritates the cartilage, leaving the once-smooth surface covered with pits and crevasses that further compromise the affected joint. Eventually, articular cartilage can be completely stripped from the bones, necessitating surgical intervention.
Concern over side effects associated with conventional sore joint therapies has sparked a renewed scientific interest in traditional natural remedies. A review of leading Chinese and English language medical journals reveals a number of recently published studies detailing new insights into the biological and biochemical mechanisms of Chinese herbs historically used to safely help relieve joint discomfort and swelling.
ï¿½ Gastrodia (Tian Ma, Rhizoma Gastrodiae Elata)
In studies, Gastrodia has demonstrated novel pain relief and inflammatory-mediating activities, as well as in vivo and in vitro inhibitory activity on nitric oxide (NO) production. (1)
ï¿½ Rehmannia (Shi Di Huang, Radix Rehmanniae Glutinosae Preparata)
An iridoid glycoside found in Rehmannia, catalpol, exerts its protective effect on dopaminergic neurons by helping inhibit microglial activation, thereby regulating production of pro-inflammatory factors. (2)
ï¿½ Tang-kuei (Bai Zhi, Radix Angelicae Dahurica)
Tang-kuei has been shown to modulate inflammation by decreasing leukocyte counts, neutrophil density, and interleukin-6 (IL-6) expression. Tang-kuei has also been found to increase levels of PGD2, an important natural prostaglandin involved in the regulation of inflammatory processes. Most significantly, Tang-kuei is a natural source of ferulic acid, a potent antioxidant that protects cells from damaging reactive oxygen species (ROS). (3)
ï¿½ Notoperygium (Qiang Huo, Radix et Rhizoma Notopterygii)
Notoperygium is used in traditional medicine to temporarily relieve discomfort due to aching in the limbs and joints, especially in the upper part of the body. Notoperygium has been demonstrated in studies to inhibit 5-Lipoxygenase (5-LOX) and COX enzymes. (4)
ï¿½ Eucommia (Du Zhong, Cortex Eucommiae Ulmoidis)
Eucommia is derived from the Eucommia, or hardy rubber tree. In traditional Chinese medicine, Eucommia is used to strengthen the bones and muscles and alleviate discomfort in the lower back and legs. Eucommia contains a substance, iridoid glycoside, that has a long history of use for inflammation.(5) One glycoside, aucubin, has been shown to be a specific inhibitor of NF-kappaB activation in mast cells, which might explain its beneficial effects. (6)
ï¿½ Chinese Ligusticum (Gao Ben, Radix et Rhizoma Ligustici Sinensis)
Alkaloids found in Chinese Ligusticum have been shown in studies to inhibit TNF-alpha production and TNF-alpha-mediated NF-kappaB activation.(7) One study conducted in Japan showed that active compounds found in Ligustici Sinensis have inflammatory modulating and pain reducing effects on early and late stages joint issues. (8)
ï¿½ Cyathula (Niu Xi, Radix Cyathulae)
Cyathula has been shown to inhibit collagen-induced joint discomfort and swelling. (9) Most significantly, two novel triterpene glycosides isolated from Cyathula have been shown to be 1,000 times more potent than Sialyl Lewis X (SleX), an important blood group antigen that inhibits excess recruitment of neutrophils to tissues. (10)
ï¿½ Scrophularia (Xuan Shen, Radix Scrophularia Ningpoensis)
Extracts of Scrophularia have been shown to mediate swelling, cell infiltration and proliferation of activated T-lymphocytes in joint tissues. (11) Additionally, Scrophularia has been shown to inhibit a number of inflammatory factors, including prosta-glandin E2, leukotriene B4, NO, interleukin-1beta, interleukin-2, interleukin-4 and interferon-gamma, but with no negative effect on the production of interleukin-10, a powerful cytokine involved in the regulation of inflammatory responses. (12) Moreover, Scrophularia is the source of a unique glycoterpenoid, Verbascosaponin A. (13)
ï¿½ Aconite (Fu Zi, Radix Lateralis Aconiti Charmichaeli Praeparata)
Aconite has been shown to exhibit especially potent temporary pain relieving properties, according to a study conducted by researchers with the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Their research reveals that one of the active ingredients in Aconite, bulleyaconitine A, or BLA, strongly reduces sodium channel currents to block overactive pain signals for prolonged periods of time.

What is the recommended daily dose of ArthriPhase?
The recommended starting dose of ArthriPhase is 2 capsules, 2 times per day.
How much can ArthriPhase can I safely take in a day?
You can safely take 2 capsules, 4 times per day for a total of 8 capsules in a day. However, that should only be necessary for short periods of time to initiate results. After benefits appear, you can reduce the dose to 2 capsules, 2 times per day and lower.
How do I know ArthriPhase is working for me?
ArthriPhase is a Tango Advanced Nutrition product that should make a change for you in how you feel. It should promote joint health and function so that you can move more easily.
You should expect results to occur quickly as many of our customers report dramatic improvement in the first few days of use. The change should be very noticeable. Instead of saying to yourself, "I think this might be helping me", you really should be able to say, "Wow, I feel a lot better."
Usually, very clear results show up in the first month of use for most people.
Do I have to take ArthriPhase forever?
Everybody has a different set of circumstances that will determine how their joint health will change when using ArthriPhase. Your response to the supplement will be determined by your individual health circumstances. Problems with joint health may be long-standing from many years of deterioration and this may determine how soon you notice positive changes and how long you may need or wish to take the formula.
However, the formula is strong enough so that everybody who will get benefits should expect them in the first month of use.
When positive changes in joint health happen, you can lower your dose gradually by one capsule at a time every 4-5 days and expect to see continued benefits. The reason for this is that, as with all true health-promoting supplements, ArthriPhase provides restorative results.
Some people will be able to discontinue ArthriPhase and switch to a different supplement that provides daily benefit for all of their health concerns. Others will take the formula on an as-needed basis. And some will take it daily to counter any ongoing stresses they experience in joint health and function.
When should I take ArthriPhase?
The most important consideration in taking ArthriPhase is to use it daily and consistently. Convenience makes regular use possible, so including ArthriPhase in your regular supplement routine is a good idea.
You can take ArthriPhase with or away from meals.
Morning and early evening are the best times to take the formula to spread out its benefits over a 24-hour period.
Some people take ArthriPhase about 1 hour before bedtime to make sure they have beneficial nutrients working while they are sleeping.
Can I take ArthriPhase with other supplements?
Yes, you can take ArthriPhase with and at the same time as you take other dietary supplements.
I take over-the-counter/prescriptive medicines for joint problems. Can I take ArthriPhase with them?
You can take ArthriPhase while you are using medicines for your joint problems or any other condition. However, you should always take ArthriPhase or any other supplement at least 2 hours away from any medication to reduce any possible risk of interaction.
As a special precaution, you should not take ArthriPhase if you are on the drastic blood thinning medication warfarin/coumadin.
If you have any questions about using ArthriPhase or any other supplement while you are using medications of any type, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Can I combine ArthriPhase with some of your other products like Vital Cell or OsteoPhase?
Yes, you can take ArthriPhase with Vital Cell and/or OsteoPhase. Many of our customers do that to support circulation and bone health. However, we suggest starting at a lower dose of each than is recommended on the bottle as there is some overlap in function between the three supplements. You can increase the doses of each by one capsule per day until you feel the effect that you are trying to achieve.
You can also call one of our product specialists if you have questions about how best to combine our formulas. The toll-free number for product questions is 1-866-778-2646, ext. 2.
Can a woman take ArthriPhase if she is pregnant or nursing?
No, we do not recommend that a woman take ArthriPhase if she is pregnant or nursing. This is not because ArthriPhase is unsafe but because there have been no safety studies performed on the ingredients in ArthriPhase for pregnancy and nursing.
Can I give ArthriPhase to my pet (cat, dog, or horse)?
Yes, however, you should contact a holistic veterinarian for advice on the dose you should give to your pet, since animals vary widely in size and speed of metabolism. Both of those factors determine doses for supplements for animals.
Is ArthriPhase tested for contaminants that could harm my health?
Yes, we regularly test batches of our formulas to make sure they meet strict quality control guidelines recommended by government regulatory agencies.
Are there any side effects from taking ArthriPhase?
ArthriPhase does not cause drowsiness or make a person sleepy. It also does not contain any stimulants that might cause jitteriness or lack of sleep.
What do I do if I think taking ArthriPhase is causing me discomfort?
The most common discomforts experienced by a tiny percentage of people when taking any vitamin, mineral, or herbal formula are digestive upset or very mild allergic reactions such as skin itching or irritability.
These minor discomforts usually disappear by taking a lower dose or by taking the supplement with meals.
If you should experience discomfort when taking ArthriPhase and it does not go away with these suggestions, then discontinue use and contact our product specialist for further recommendations at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2. If we cannot determine a way for you to continue use of the product to gain its benefits, then we will arrange for a full refund for you.
