Every day millions of Americans struggle with inflammation leading to chronic aches and pains, and sore joints. The closest approximation is about 100 million Americans. That’s more sufferers than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. Even the simplest of daily tasks become a chore, not to mention physical activity being excruciatingly impossible.
All that pain tallies up anywhere from $261-$300 billion annually in health care bills. This translates into poorer performance at work, thus lower productivity, and lost wages. Pain is more than a debilitating problem. It has a quantifiable fiscal cost that affects all of us.
The key is to go after the source of the pain and help the body heal itself with the right nutrients.Heal Yourself, Not Hurt Yourself So many “medicines,” OTC or otherwise, just mask the pain. Even worse, people take pain pills for far too long. Your body can’t heal when its inflammatory response is being shut down. Ironically, you’d heal faster if you didn’t take NSAIDs.
You can get the same pain relief—more like cure it—by supplying your body with the nutrients it needs to repair and heal. The nutrients include (and definitely aren’t limited to) turmeric root, an anti-inflammatory enzyme blend, glucosamine, and chondroitin.
Turmeric root has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. It contains the key chemical circumin, which works as an effective anti-inflammatory.
A 2006 study showed turmeric was more effective at preventing joint inflammation than reducing joint inflammation. In a 2012 pilot study, curcumin reduced joint pain and swelling in patients with active RA better than diclofenac, an NSAID.
The anti-inflammatory enzyme blend is revolutionary in how it works with your body to promote healing. The body’s natural reaction is to protect your body from foreign substances, be it from the food you eat or debris created by injury, and anything in between, including arthritis and infection. This reaction triggers increased blood flow to the affected site. You know this when you see swelling, redness, and extra warmth at said site.
Our enzyme blend provides what your body needs to flush out whatever’s triggering your body’s inflammatory response.
Glucosamine has been proven to help repair and rebuild joint cartilage and tendons. Chronic pain from bursitis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and even disc degeneration have all been shown to respond well, too.
Glucosamine helps reduce inflammation and several studies suggest that taking glucosamine supplements may reduce collagen breakdown. In laboratory tests, glucosamine showed anti-inflammatory properties and even appeared to help cartilage regeneration. However, in order to be effective, it needs to be paired with other ingredients, especially chondroitin.
Chondroitin is the major part of cartilage that helps it retain water. Your body actually makes chondroitin naturally. Researchers found that chondroitin appears to reduce pain, increase joint mobility, and decrease the need for painkillers.
