MEDICAL FACTS ABOUT KEY INGREDIENTS THAT MAKE JOINT COMBO FORMULA SUPERIOR: -

Glucosamine Sulphate
Research studies have shown that Glucosamine Sulphate is the most effective form of Glucosamine in the treatment of Osteoarthritis. It stimulates joint repair and relieves symptoms better than any other joint ingredient.

Medical research has proven that taken on a daily basis, it helps to preserve and maintain existing joint cartilage. Symptomatic relief of pain, inflammation and joint stiffness, without the side effects commonly experienced with anti-inflammatory drugs, is also provided.

Glucosamine manufacturers the substances required for proper joint function. It is a natural substance produced by our bodies and stimulates the production of connective tissue, the main constituent of cartilage. Glucosamine is responsible for stimulation, maintaining and rebuilding cartilage. With age, Glucosamine levels in the body decrease and supplementation is therefore beneficial.

Chondroitin
Chondroitin is a natural compound synthesized within cartilage, which creates spaces allowing for better water retention and therefore more spongy cartilage tissue. The 'water cushion' protects the cartilage from deterioration, improves flexibility and cartilage's shock absorbing ability.

Research has proven that supplementing correctly can dramatically improve health by minimizing the effects of aging, strengthening immune system, increasing energy, promoting healing and helping to prevent these degenerative diseases. Lifeforce believes that the primary foundation of a sound nutritional supplementation program begins with a comprehensive formula, such as Joint Combo.

Calcium Pantothenate (Vit.B5)
Helps in cell building, maintaining normal growth and development of the central nervous system.
Essential for conversion of fat and sugar to energy.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), and Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) elevates the antibody responses, thereby lowering allergies.
Vital for the proper functioning of adrenal glands, so Vitamin B5 helps to "key" your body to an appropriate stress response. Necessary for synthesis of antibodies, and for utilisation of PABA and Choline. Aids in wound healing and fights infection by building antibodies. Prevents fatigue and reduces adverse and toxic effects of many antibiotics.

Ginger
Studies how that Ginger has strong antibacterial and antidepressant properties. Ginger contains the following vitamins: Choline, Inositol, PABA, B3, B5, digestive enzymes, and minerals: Magnesium, Potassium and Silica. Ginger is also known as a natural and potent pain relief ingredient. It assist in a cleansing process for the liver, therefore it reduces adverse and toxic effects.

Devils Claw and Celery Seed.
These natural extracts contain potent anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic substances. It is excellent for the relief of Arthritis, Rheumatism, Liver and Kidney complaints. Recent studies done in France and Germany compare the anti-inflammatory action of Devil's Claw to that of Cortisone and Phenylbutazone.

Kelp
The amazing seaweed contains more vitamins and minerals than any other food. Kelp has Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Choline, Carotene and Algenic Acid, as well as twenty-three minerals, which range as follows: Iodine, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Sulphur, Chlorine, Copper, Zinc and Manganese. Plus traces of: Barium, Boron, Chromium, Lithium, Nickel, Silver, Titanium, Aluminium, Strontium, and Silicon. Kelp helps in maintaining the health of the mucous membranes and in treating Arthritis, Constipation, Rheumatism, Colds and Skin irritations.


AMINO ACIDS:

Phenylalanine increases Energy levels, alleviates Chronic Pain, increases Alertness, improves Concentration, and improves mood.

N-Acetyl-Cysteine inhibits the ability of mutagens to damage Chromosomes and improves the function of the Mitochondria. NAC is presently undergoing clinical trails as an enhancer of the Immune System. NAC is a potent antioxidant, and helps to prevent muscle weakness.

N-Acetyl-Glucosamine. The most promising use is in the treatment of Osteoarthritis. It can gradually reduce pain while improving a range of motion and walking speed. It is absorbed quickly and easily, because the molecules are small and simple. There is promising evidence that it can both control pain, slow down and reverse the progression of degenerative joint disease.

What is Arthritis?
It is an inflammatory condition of one or more joints. Arthritis is a degenerative disease of the joints affecting millions of South Africans.

Symptoms of Arthritis include:

  • PAIN
  • STIFFNESS
  • SWELLING OF JOINTS.

There are around 200 kinds of arthritis, the two most common being Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. For the benefit of those interested, Lifeforce will discuss 3 forms only; they are Rheumatism, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatism:
Rheumatism is a general term used to denote any disorder, which causes pain and aching in the muscles and bones. The term is used by the layman, rather than the professional, and covers a large number of medical conditions in which suffers experience pain and stiffness in various parts of the body and, if symptoms are confined to the joints, Arthritis. It occurs at any age, although it is more common in the elderly. Polymyalgia Rheumatica, is the uncommon form of Rheumatism which tends to affect the elderly. It is of sudden onset and causes severe stiffness and pain in the muscles of the neck, shoulders, hips and thighs.

Osteoarthritis:
Is a progressive disorder. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of Arthritis and is characterized by joint degeneration and loss of cartilage. Osteoarthritis is believed to be a degenerative disease that develops as a result of wear and tear of the cartilage in a joint. Cartilage or 'gristle' provides a smooth surface for bones to slide against, allowing painless and easy movement. When the cartilage is worn away or damaged, the bones rub together causing pain and stiffness, especially during damp weather or the morning after strenuous activity.

Rheumatoid Arthritis:
Rheumatoid arthritis is what is known as an 'Auto-Immune' disease - therefore a chronic disease. The body's immune system mounts an immune response against its own tissues, causing inflammation and diseased tissue.

In case of Rheumatoid Arthritis, the part of the body affected is the tissue that lines the joint known as the Synovium. It usually starts in early adulthood or middle age, but can sometimes start in childhood. Rheumatoid Arthritis affects 2 - 3 % of the population and about 75 per cent of suffers are women. The cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis is not known, but there is some evidence that it can be triggered by food.

What are some of the causes of Arthritis?

  • Diet
  • The weight factor
  • Problems with the Digestive System that manifest through Allergies or Intolerances
  • Weakness in Defense (Immune) System

WHAT NATURAL TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR ALL FORMS OF ARTHRITIS?

Fish Oils
Scientific evidence has now emerged to show that fish oils can prove helpful to people who suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids, can have an anti-inflammatory effect on the joints of some Arthritis suffers. People with Rheumatoid Arthritis can try eating fresh oily fish at least 3 times a week, or they can take fish oil capsules or in liquid form if this is more manageable. Signs of improvement are normally seen after a period of two to three months.
People who need to take Anti-inflammatory drugs may be able to reduce their dosage (with their doctor's permission) by about one-third if they eat oily fish regularly. This reduces the risk of the drugs having any unpleasant side effects.

PROBLEMS WITH THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Allergies or Intolerances
For some people who develop Rheumatoid Arthritis, an Allergy or Intolerance to particular foods may be a contributing factor. Pinpointing the culprit foods can be difficult but common suspects include dairy products, eggs, wheat and cereals. Digestive Enzymes, pre and pro-biotics can help to alleviate this problem.

Weakness in Defense (Immune) System -
Becoming Immuno-deficient is an abnormal condition of the immune system in which cellular or humoral immunity is inadequate and resistance to infection is decreased. Lifeforce Immuno Aid Combo has been Medically created to stimulate and strengthen your immune function
