Our musculoskeletal system is an amazing combination of joints and muscles that allow us to remain mobile and agile. However, as with all mechanical structures, we too are subject to increasing wear and tear. These processes increase with age, previous injury or trauma, high stress and obesity. In order for our joints, cartilage, bones and connective tissue to remain flexible and pain-free, they need adequate nutritional support.

With ACTEN we have achieved a breakthrough in natural joint health. Manufactured in Switzerland, certified & clinically tested. From the selection of raw and natural materials to the final product – ACTEN guarantees pharmaceutical quality & strictest controls.

Through the nutrient HYDROIDAN®, ACTEN provides the body with the right and necessary nutritional support to promote cartilage health, strengthen the immune system and help reduce inflammation. HYDROIDAN® stimulates the body’s own collagen and hyaluron production. This has a positive effect on the resistance and elasticity of cartilage. HYDROIDAN® also helps to preserve bones, protects cells from oxidative stress and promotes the elimination of toxins, harmful chemicals and heavy metals.

ACTEN is not only natural and very well tolerated, but also has a pleasant taste. The taste is fruity round due to the natural substances and is complemented by a refreshing lemon & lime taste.

We recommend that you take one ACTEN gel pack every day for a longer period of time – at least for 3 months. Best in the morning and on an empty stomach. In this way, the nutrient HYDROIDAN® can be provided to the body and absorbed by the metabolism. the ingredients are not destroyed too much by stomach acid, since the digestive system is not so active in the morning. You are free to drink and eat right afterwards, without worrying about how much time passed.

Basically, we recommend taking it on an empty stomach to guarantee a fast stomach passage and a higher bioavailability. It is known that food components can lead to a reduction in absorption and bioavailability. If ACTEN is taken with a meal, this can influence the effect, because the active ingredients cannot be absorbed immediately into the body. It is therefore important to take ACTEN on an empty stomach, in order to achieve its full potential. We should not forget, however, that thanks to the ACTEN gel already an increased bioavailability is guaranteed and thus customers who have problems with the intake of the gel combine it with water.

There is no definitive answer to this question. The effect of ACTEN depends on several factors such as existing injuries or physical complaints and varies from person to person.

However, many of our customers confirm that if they take one 1 gel pack on a daily basis, they feel less pain and more mobile after just one month. The effect is also influenced by the sport activity of the consumers.

ACTEN is very well tolerated and is suitable for long-term use. It has not been known to have side effects with other drugs. However, we generally recommend that women avoid taking ACTEN during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Important to know, the gel is a pure dietary fiber, which naturally also stimulates intestinal activity. The increased intestinal activity could be due to the fact that you, as a consumer have eaten too little dietary fiber. Besides supporting the immune system & inhibiting inflammation, the brown algae also provide a detoxifying effect. The intestinal activity will go back to normal after a certain time of constant intake.

If you have any questions or are uncertain, we recommend that you consult your doctor or pharmacist.

ACTEN can easily be taken in combination with other dietary supplements. However, you should be aware that the recommended daily dose of active ingredients such as vitamin C and zinc is not exceeded. ACTEN already provides you with 100% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C and zinc.

In principle, ACTEN cannot be consumed without a sweetener.
With sweetening, the type of sweetener and the source are the most important factors.
We use natural fructose (fructose derived from the fruit) in minimal doses. No industrial fructose is present, which can usually lead to fructose intolerances.
Furthermore, it is good to know that a body cannot function without carbohydrates. The consumer often thinks that protein is “healthy”, and sugar is “bad” for the body. It is important to know that 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of protein have 4 kcal.
Now to the diabetics, we have already diabetics who can consume our product. The BE (bread units) that are relevant for injecting insulin are so small that it has no effect, as long as 1 pack of ACTEN is consumed per day.

If you have any questions or are in doubt, we recommend that you consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Our collagen is exclusively obtained from natural raw materials of animal origin. These are previously examined by a veterinarian and approved for human consumption. The actual raw material for the production of collagen peptides is native collagen protein from cattle sourced 100% from the European Union.

The bioactive hydrolysate used in Acten is a complex of various specific peptides optimized for chondrocyte stimulation. The starting material can be classified as type I and type II collagen.
