Description

DESCRIPTION

The herbs used in this product are known to help the body’s own ability to inhibit some of the processes, reduce inflammation and control pain in order to improve mobility, discomfort and calcification.

Research suggests that some of the ingredients have been shown to promote the biosynthesis of collagen and prevent its destruction.
Due to the strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds of the herbs, research suggests they may improve mobility in people with osteoarthritis, while reducing chronic lower back pain, stiffness, pain and joint swelling. Use in conjunction with Pain & Arthritis cream for best results and immediate relief.

Further research shows that some ingredients may rebuild cartilage, and assist with Fibromyalgia.
Hydrangea root and other ingredients are grown to blocks Th17 cells causing an autoimmune reaction and massive inflammation.

The success of any herbal supplement depends greatly on a change in lifestyle and an eating plan free of gluten, dairy and sugar, complemented by stress reduction, sufficient sleep, moderate exercise and a balanced diet.

It is very important to eliminate sugar from the diet, as it promotes the growth of candida and other bacteria, causing leaky-gut, inflammation and often an auto-immune response. Hydrangea root is included in the formulation, as it is known to assist the body to prevent a massive inflammatory response, often causing the immune reaction leading to severe arthritis, lupus, ms, thyroid problems, and many other diseases associated with such immune response.

RESEARCH ON SOME OF THE INGREDIENTS:

Billberry: Flavonoids, specifically anthocyanosides, are the most pharmacologically active constituents in bilberry fruit. Extracts containing anthocyanosides have been shown to promote the biosynthesis of collagen and prevent its destruction. The destruction of collagen is a side-effect of the inflammatory processes that occur in rheumatoid arthritis, periodontal disease, and other inflammatory conditions involving bones, joints, cartilage, and other connective tissue. Bilberry contains not only anthocyanidins, but proanthocyanidins and other flavonoids, all of which effectively prevent collagen destruction.

Boswelia: Anti-inflammatory. Arthritis inflammation & pain. Blocks leukotrienes that attack healthy joints (The leukotrienes are potent inflammatory mediators which may have a role in inflammatory diseases such as allergic rhinitis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma)

Comfrey: Bone & tissue builder

Hydrangea root: US researchers found that a drug made from the root of the hydrangea plant, which has for centuries been used in Chinese medicine, showed promising results in treating autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, eczema and psoriasis. Blocks Th17 cells causing an autoimmune reaction and massive inflammation.

White Willow Bark: Arthritis. Inflammation. Osteoarthritis. Joint pain. The bark of white willow contains salicin, which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). In combination with the herb’s powerful anti-inflammatory plant compounds (called flavonoids), salicin is thought to be responsible for the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the herb.

RESEARCH ON INGREDIENTS

Alpha-Lipoic-Acid: Arthritis. Omega 3 fatty acids

Boswelia: Anti-inflammatory. Arthritis inflammation & pain. Blocks leukotrienes that attack healthy joints (The leukotrienes are potent inflammatory mediators which may have a role in inflammatory diseases such as allergic rhinitis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma).

Billberry: Flavonoids, specifically anthocyanosides, are the most pharmacologically active constituents in bilberry fruit. Extracts containing anthocyanosides have been shown to promote the biosynthesis of collagen and prevent its destruction. Additionally, they can decrease capillary permeability and fragility, prevent oedema, and inhibit platelet aggregation. Bilberry anthocyanosides have demonstrated strong anti-inflammatory actions including preventing the release and synthesis of pro-inflammatory compounds such as histamine, prostaglandins, and leukotrienes. Anthocyanosides have demonstrated significant collagen-stabilizing action in vitro. Collagen, the body’s most abundant protein, provides and maintains the integrity of ground substance as well as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The destruction of collagen is a side-effect of the inflammatory processes that occur in rheumatoid arthritis, periodontal disease, and other inflammatory conditions involving bones, joints, cartilage, and other connective tissue. Bilberry contains not only anthocyanidins, but proanthocyanidins and other flavonoids, all of which effectively prevent collagen destruction.

Boron: Trace element to assist Vit D in the metabolism of calcium

Chondroitin sulphate: The shock-absorber. May slow progression of arthritis. Acts like a slow-acting medication.

CLA – Conjugated Linoleic Acid – Omega 6 fatty acid – currently not available in South Africa. Will be added again to capsule when stock available.

Comfrey: Bone & tissue builder

Glucosamine Sulphate: Cartilage builder

Glycine: Inflammation. Gut health. One of the main ingredients of collagen.

Hyaluronic Acid: If you have osteoarthritis (OA), you know all about joint pain and stiffness. One cause of these symptoms is the fact that hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring joint lubricant, breaks down in people with OA. Hyaluronic acid may reduce or relieve inflammation caused by wearing of the cartilage and bone in osteoarthritic joints. May help to restore lubrication and also induces the growth of new cartilage and bone tissue in these joints.

Hydrolysed Collagen: Type II collagen is one of the main proteins in cartilage. It has been suggested that taking collagen hydrolysate can improve the symptoms of osteoarthritis by stimulating your body’s production of joint collagen. Billberry will enhance this function.

Hydrangea root: US researchers found that a drug made from the root of the hydrangea plant, which has for centuries been used in Chinese medicine, showed promising results in treating autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, eczema and psoriasis. Blocks Th17 cells causing an autoimmune reaction and massive inflammation.

L-Methionine: Anti-inflammatory. Improves mobility in people with osteoarthritis. Chronic lower back pain. Stiffness. Pain. Joint swelling.
Rebuilds cartilage. Osteoarthritis. Fibromyalgia.

Manganese: Strong antioxidant

Magnesium: Strengthens bones. Maintains joint cartilage.

Milkthistle: Uric acid

Olive Leaf: Inflamed joints in arthritis

Rosehip: Osteoarthritis: Inhibits cyclooxygenase-1 & 2

Selenium: Antioxidant that supports body to reduce inflammation & curbs free radical damage

Vit B: Rebuilds cartilage. Needed for cortisone production. Pantothenic acid converts uric acid to urea & ammonia

Vit C: Collagen production. Reduces uric acid levels. Collagen synthesized by Vit C. For proper bone & cartilage production.

White Willow Bark: Arthritis. Inflammation. Osteoarthritis. Joint pain. The bark of white willow contains salicin, which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). In combination with the herb’s powerful anti-inflammatory plant compounds (called flavonoids), salicin is thought to be responsible for the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the herb.

Yeast Beta Glucans: Collagen & immune system
