scores, Lequense index, VAS at movement and at rest.
The final model included age as a demographic predictor and functional status as determined by the WOMAC
A clinical improvement of the score was achieved for the WOMAC
questions regarding both pain and stiffness.
Level of pain was assessed by using WOMAC
A, stiffness by WOMAC
B, and functional impairment by WOMAC
The results showed that a combination of Curcumin C3 Complex and BioPerine significantly improved arthritic indices such as VAS (Visual Analogue Scale), WOMAC
(Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritic Index) and LPFI (Lequesne's pain functional index) scores.

Pycnogenol significantly decreased joint pain and improved joint function as evaluated using the WOMAC
