Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease of the joints that usually starts after the age of 40 and has a gradual onset. The joints deteriorate because of faulty or deficient repair of bone and cartilage in the joint. The average diet in North America is lacking in the minerals that support the repair of bone and cartilage, which helps explain why osteoarthritis is concern for so many people. Osteoarthritis causes stiffness and pain when the joint is used and is often worse in the mornings. As the disease progresses, it can also cause inflammation and swelling in the joints, decreasing the ability to exercise and maintain your mobility. + Read more >
Rheumatoid arthritis differs from osteoarthritis because it is an autoimmune disease that attacks the joints. Joint damage in people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis is caused when the body attacks its own tissues. Joint pain can move around the body, symptoms may come and go, and can be triggered by stress or viral infections. Rheumatoid arthritis can also produce symptoms that include fatigue, poor appetite, weight loss and a low-grade fever in addition to the joint pain, stiffness and swelling. Conventional treatment of rheumatoid arthritis often involves many powerful drugs that can have significant side effects and some of these drugs are known to deplete the body of necessary vitamins and minerals. Fortunately there are proven arthritis and joint pain supplements available to help reduce joint pain and stiffness regardless of which type of arthritis you have, allowing you to keep active and fit. Arthritis and joint pain supplements containing glucosamine and chondroitin have been proven to reduce joint pain more importantly, help repair the cartilage that is degenerating. This is especially important to those who are looking for a natural alternative to pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory medications, which have many side effects and over time can actually accelerate the degeneration of joint tissue. Other important arthritis and joint pain supplements include Vitamin C and E, Essential Fatty Acids, Curcumin, MSM, Grape Seed extract and Arnica. Some arthritis and joint pain supplements are also available as topical products to provide more immediate relief to swollen, painful joints and include Arnica and Capsaicin. It is also important to incorporate gentle exercise like walking, swimming or water aerobics into your daily routine to help maintain joint motion and muscle strength. For those with food sensitivities avoiding aggravating foods, particularly those in the nightshade family such green peppers, eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes, can be helpful.

Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in various berries (cranberry, blueberry, grapes) and herbs. Studies with trans-resveratrol have reported a diverse range of benefits in the areas of heart health, immunity and inflammation. Research has also revealed that trans-resveratrol mimics the biological longevity effects of a calorie-restricted diet. There is no doubt that many among us, in the context of dinner-party banter or some other setting conducive to the transfer of anecdotal wisdom, have heard that a glass of wine a day is good for your health. ‘A healthy heart and a long life' is usually the jist of this particular nugget of scientifically secular populist enlightenment. The long life that is inferred is attributable to a substance that the scientifically observant elite have identified as resveratrol, a phytonutrient originating -in this case - in the vinyards. Resveratrol, in turn, elicits this wondrous effect largely by mimicking many of the biological chain of events seen in the practice of Calorie Restriction Optimum Nutrition (CRON), or simply Caloric Restriction (CR).$33.88

Green Lipped FFATM is the stable free fatty acid extract of Perna canaliculus, the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. This extract contains an unique profile of fatty acids not found in significant amounts in standard fish oil supplements. These fatty acids modulate the body's production of eicosanoids, key local cellular "hormones" involved in inflammatory responses, acting through inhibition of 5- and 12-lypoxygenase and other key enzymes. Studies show that these effects make this mixture more effective nutritional support than conventional fish oils.

SAMe 400 is s-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe), a key biological factor that drives a wide variety of essential biochemical reactions, including the methylation of DNA, catecholamine neurotransmitters (brain messenger-molecules), phospholipids, hormones, and chondrocytes (cartilage-forming cells). Research suggests SAMe's ability to support healthy mood function and to relieve symptoms and reduce functional impairment in osteoarthritis. SAMe 400 provides a full 400 mg of true SAMe ion per enterically coated tablet, with a minimum of 70% biologically active (S),S-diastereoisomer. S-Adenosyl-l-methiononine, or SAMe, is a naturally-occurring physiological agent in the human body that forms an integral part of the methylation cycle. It is formed in the body through the combination of the amino acid methionine and adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This compound was first isolated in Italy in 1952 and is now a prescription drug in much of Europe, most commonly it seems, as an anti-depressant. Safe, energizing, and purported to treat depression twice as fast as standard anti-depressants such as Prozac, SAMe has become more popular than the latter in the nation of its discovery, in spite of being more expensive there. SAMe is also heavily studied for its ability to alleviate the conditions of osteoarthritis as well as to treat liver disease.$53.99
