The main enemy of joints is excess weight. Most of the patients suffering from arthroses of knee and coxofemoral joints have noticeable excess weight. Weight reduction of body leads to noticeable improvement of condition of joints.

The effective diet at arthrosis has to promote decrease in excess weight of body, at the same time completely providing organism with all necessary substances.

Selecting diet, carrying out cleanings or starvation, it is necessary to be very careful not to do to itself harm.

  • The second reception - 25%
