Combination the Best Supplements to Help Your Joints Heal Naturally.
The Problem: From injuries, aging or our environment, our bodies begin to decrease the natural repairing of our joints!
The Answer: In our answer to joint mobility, we have to take a little different approach. To explain how we can help improve the health and function of the joints, we have to first include a short summary of the problem. If you understand some of what is happening in the joints, it becomes easier to stay with a supplement program.
1. Osteoarthritis is the most common form.
2. Rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis: arthritis is the more normal wear that happens to all joints. It happens when the cartilage between the joints begins to break down or wear away. The smooth gliding motion gives way to friction that causes pain and stiffness. This joint damage is often a normal result of many years of use or injuries. Infections or disease are also suspected as culprits. A lack of sufficient nutrients for the joints to repair themselves properly only adds to the problem. Our focus will be on osteoarthritis since it responds best to natural nutrients.
Rheumatoid: arthritis also causes inflammation, pain and stiffness of the lining of joints that often results in redness and swelling. It is a disease in the lupus family in which the immune system begins attacking the body’s own tissues, especially cartilage. There are over 100 different types of rheumatic diseases, including: rheumatoid, bursitis, tendinitis, gout, psoriasis and infectious reactions. Rheumatoid arthritis is harder to deal with than osteoarthritis but we recommend nutrients recent research has shown to help rheumatoid arthritis. However, inflammation is a common result of most forms of rheumatoid arthritis and we will also be addressing inflammation.
There are NSAID and DMARD drugs available but they can be toxic and have side effects ranging from nausea and ulcers, even death. In fact, even the Journal of the American Medical Association published studies between 1998 and 2001 on Vioxx and Celebrex, raising a “cautionary flag” about significantly higher risks of “cardiovascular events” (heart attacks).
The Primary Cause of Arthritis
Where the bones and sockets come together, there is a slick, smooth, rubbery, material (almost like a tough sponge) that helps absorb shock. This material also acts as a liner to keep the ends of the bones from rubbing together. It is called articular cartilage.
Also inside this tough sponge-like material, is something called synovial fluid. It provides lubrication and shock absorption for the joints.
If, for any reason, this articular cartilage breaks down and synovial fluid is lost, there is less protection for the bones. In more severe or advanced cases, the bones can even begin to rub together directly. Like rubbing together a couple sticks, this causes irritation, inflammation, pain and loss of motion. This is the situation we want to prevent from happening, or heal if it has already happened!
A Major Obstacle to Overcome
With most other body tissues, when you eat nutrients or take an aspirin, the blood supply takes it to the cells fairly quickly. These nutrients get to the needed areas within a relatively short time and can start working.
There is one characteristic of joints that make it harder to help them. The arteries that feed the rest of the body don’t go directly to joint cartilage! This makes it take much longer for nutrients to get absorbed within the cartilage and begin to work in the synovial fluid. This is also why ligaments and joints take longer to heal than a bruise.
It is only when these nutrients reach the synovial fluid in the sponge-like that the joints can begin to repair themselves! The cartilage must absorb nutrients from the fluid that surrounds it through a process known as “imbibition”. This mimics the action of a sponge, pushing those essential nutrients such as blood, oxygen, and vitamins and minerals into the joint space. As the joint moves, the articular cartilage “sponge” is compressed and released. Like a sponge, nutrients from the blood are slowly sucked in and pressed to the cells. Waste products are “sucked” out from the cells and pressed out to the blood supply. However, since the blood supply in imbibition is limited, this is a very slow process.
How the Ultimate Joint Mobility Helps
We are explaining this process so you can understand why joint healing moves at a snail’s pace. With the joints, it requires patience! The good news is that the prevention or healing process DOES move along. Results can happen! When you understand the healing process of joints, it will help you understand how our Joint Health Formula works so well.
Keeping this understanding of how joints work, looking at the ingredients articles will make more sense. In those articles, we list the ingredients and what they do. This will give you a vivid picture of how each nutrient works with each other to bring healing nourishment to your joints.
