Seatone vs. Other Treatment

Seatone is better than all the other treatments for arthritis because:

  • Seatone is a produced from natural source therefore it does not show any side effects. On the other side the medicines used in the treatment of arthritis show a number of side effects as bleeding problems, cardiovascular problems, and liver and kidney damage.
  • Medicines as NSAIDs and analgesics show damage to the delicate lining of stomach however the Seatone protects the stomach lining by acting as gastro-protective.
  • Blood clot or infection can occur after surgeries done for the treatment of arthritis.
  • Medicines used for arthritis can provide you fast relief from pain and swelling however their effect may be temporary. On the other side the Seatone provides gradual but progressive relief from the symptoms of arthritis which is generally long lasting.
  • Medicines such as NSAIDs only reduce the symptoms of arthritis but Seatone also provides gradual improvement in grip strength and mobility.
  • Seatone is safe even at higher doses but the medicines as analgesics or NSAIDs can show unpleasant effects at higher doses.
