Why should I take Acten?

Our musculoskeletal system is an amazing combination of joints and muscles which allows us to undertake many years of movement and exercise. However, as with all mechanical structures, we are also prone to increasing levels of wear and tear. These processes will increase with age, previous injury or trauma, high levels of strain and obesity. Our joints, cartilage, bones and connective tissue must have sufficient nutritional support to stay flexible and pain-free to enable us to remain physically active. Acten is the nutritional way for prevention, protection and healing without the need for pharmaceutical substances.

What does it actually do?

Acten contains 10g of pure Fortigel, this is a combination of optimised specific collagen peptides that have been proven to encourage the growth of new cartilage by stimulating their cells. This will in turn help to relieve joint pain and make the joint surfaces more smooth and mobile. Acten also contains Hydroidan which helps facilitate faster transition though the gastro-intestinal tract. This allows the substance to be more effectively absorbed by the metabolism and result in maximum performance within the joints.

What does it taste like?

Acten has a pleasant taste, is easy to digest and no additional intake of fluid is required. Instead of tablets or injections, active support of the joints becomes easy and enjoyable with Acten.

I am a vegetarian, am I still able to take Acten?

The gelatine used in the manufacture of Acten is derived from a combination of 2 extracts, a polysaccharide named Xanthan and a substance derived from the Guar plant. However, all collagen products, including the Collagen Peptides contained in Fortigel are derived from bovine hides.

What is the dosage?

To enable sufficient quantities to build up in your system, we recommend 1 sachet of Acten per day for the first 3 months. Thereafter, the dose can be reduced to every other day.

How long will it be before I start to feel an improvement?

Acten contains Fucoidan (a substance derived from organic brown seaweed) which is a powerful and totally natural anti-inflammatory which will begin to reduce discomfort straight away. However, the symptoms you feel are as individual as you are therefore there is no set time frame in which you feel an improvement. A great many people are reporting a significant benefit after only 1 month but you need to keep the 1 sachet per day dosage up until the end of the first 3 months to feel the maximum relief.

Are there any side effects from taking Acten?

There has been no recorded side effects from taking Acten, and it has not been shown to have any adverse effects when taking in combination with any drugs. However, if you are concerned, it is always sensible to check with your Doctor before beginning to take Acten. We recommend
that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding do not start to use Acten.

Can I take it at the same time as other nutritional supplements?

There are no problems taking Acten in combination with other nutritional supplements providing you do not exceed your recommended daily intake of the active ingredients e.g. Vitamin C and Zinc both of which Acten will provide you with 100% of your recommended daily amount.
