Thanks for posting your query.
Neurobion is a multivitamin tablet/ capsule and pathogenesis of osteoarthritis doesn't involve excess/ lack of vitamins.
Osteoarthritis involves degradation of joints,[1] including articular cartilage and subchondral bone.
Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion.
Mechanical stress on joints underlies all osteoarthritis, mechanical stress may be in form misalignments of bones caused by congenital or pathogenic causes; mechanical injury; overweight; loss of strength in muscles supporting joints; and impairment of peripheral nerves, leading to sudden or uncoordinated movements that overstress joints.
Primary osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative disorder related to but not caused by aging.
As a person ages, the water content of the cartilage decreases as a result of a reduced proteoglycan content, thus causing the cartilage to be less resilient.
Without the protective effects of the proteoglycans, the collagen fibers of the cartilage can become susceptible to degradation and thus exacerbate the degeneration.
Researchers have focused on the effect of certain vitamins on osteoarthritis, especially vitamin C and vitamin D but as such no proven studies are present for multivitamin use.
You can go for multivitamin containing S-adenosyl methionine, Vit A, B3 and C.
So the conclusion is that you can use neurobion without ill effects on Osteoarthritic changes.
Put your query if you have.
Are you over conscious regarding any side effects of neurobion?
