Help Joints Stay Active

Where there is pain, there is inflammation. Arthritic conditions are the leading cause of disability for adult New Zealanders; causing pain, reduced mobility and generally impacting quality of life. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis cause the destruction of cartilage in joints. Many attribute this to a wear and tear process, however new research suggests that both forms of arthritis have an inflammatory component that develops as a self-protection mechanism. By reducing inflammation, supporting joint health and providing the body with the essential nutrients it needs, there are many ways New Zealanders can find better health and wellness, without joint pain.

Undenatured Collagen – Type II (UC-II)

Multiple clinical trials have found that this unique collagen formulation prevents immune cells from overreacting to normal cells found in cartilage and joint tissue. UC-II helps the body to recognize these cells as part of itself rather than foreign microbes. By providing support to the immune system, an inflammatory response is prevented. This formulation helps to relieve pain and stiffness associated with both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis by assisting with the regeneration of healthy cartilage and supporting joint function. UC-11 also alleviates pain associated with strenuous exercise.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin.jpg

Glucosamine and Chondroitin

Naturally occurring sugars found within the body and inside joint fluid; glucosamine and chondroitin are building blocks of cartilage. Cartilage is the absorbing tissue that forms the ends of bones in a joint, allowing for smooth movement. However, as we age cartilage can break down and become less flexible. There is evidence that glucosamine and chondroitin may slow down this process. Through the natural incorporation of sulfur into cartilage, glucosamine and chondroitin help to build, repair and reduce joint discomfort.

Calcium and Magnesium

It is essential that the body maintains high nutrient levels for healthy bones and joints because joints receive nutrients through the bones. Calcium and magnesium are strengthening minerals. Magnesium supports proper nerve function to ease pain in sensitive joints and calcium helps to maintain bone density and strength. Together, calcium and magnesium help the muscles surrounding the joints to contract and relax effectively for joint support and improved musculoskeletal function.

Turmeric

The active component of turmeric is curcumin, an anti-inflammatory and potent anti-oxidant. Naturally protecting the body from oxidization, and preventing the activation of inflammation; turmeric helps to reduce swelling, stiffness, and pain.

White willow

Used for over 2,000 years to reduce pain and inflammation, there is a reason why white willow is still popular today. Extracted from the Willow tree, it is a natural pain reliever containing the same active ingredient found in aspirin, salicin. White willow is a side-effect free source of salicin, that works as a mild analgesic, natural anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic, effectively reducing pain and inflammation in the muscular skeletal system.

Green lipped mussel extract

A native species only found in New Zealand waters, the green lipped mussel is prized for its benefit to joint health. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, green lipped mussels are anti-inflammatory, reduce muscle and joint swelling for improved mobility, and are a natural source of glucosamine. Mucopolysaccharides are the active component found within green lipped mussels, however it is important that the extracted form is used for the treatment of arthritic conditions, because green lipped muscles lose their anti-inflammatory properties when cooked.

Red Super Krill oil

Found in the pristine waters of the Antarctic Ocean, Krill oil is high in a phospholipid form of EPA and DHA that is better utilised by the body, by being absorbed straight into the cell membrane. Krill oil is sourced from a sustainable resource that is regulated by The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). The omega-3 found within Krill oil helps to reduce inflammation, promote tissue repair and support joint health and mobility. Naturally rich in Astaxanthin, Krill oil provides potent antioxidant protection, protecting the cell membranes from further inflammation, and from free-radical damage for optimal health and wellbeing.

Take control of your joint health.jpg
Having arthritis can be challenging. Whether you are stiff in the morning, or do not have the same mobility that you are used to, don’t suffer in silence. There are many ways that you can support your body, and reduce the symptoms of arthritis. Don’t let sore joints affect your health and wellbeing.
