Have you tried natural products for your arthritis pain relief? I talk to people every day who are worried about the side effects of pain relief medications and are starting to talk to their doctors about natural alternatives. Doctors are becoming more willing to talk about natural vitamins, herbs and other nutrients that don’t have a risk for serious things like heart attack, stroke, etc.
Arthritis Pain Relief
Why can natural products help your pain from arthritis? Let’s look at what causes your pain. First, your joints wear out due to normal wear and tear over the years, and sometimes that is sooner rather than later if you were more physically active than the average person or overexerted. Stress on the joints wear them down.
You have naturally occurring nutrients like glucosamine hydrochloride in your body. When you have high levels of it present, your joints are feeling pretty good. That’s because there is healthy cartilage between your joints that is a built in cushion to let you move comfortably.
Your natural levels of glucosamine hydrochloride can be reduced over time, and that affects your cartilage and in turn your joint comfort. And you get pain in your joints.
Natural Pain Remedy
When you supplement your diet with natural glucosamine, you can raise the levels in your body and that can help rebuild and repair your joint cartilage. There is all kinds of scientific research about the amount of glucosamine you need to have per serving, each day, in order to impact your joint health.
Glucosamine can help osteoarthritis because it has been clinically proven to promote mobility, enhance flexibility, improve joint function and help long-term joint health. People with rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, joint related physical injuries, and spinal disc degeneration have also experienced good results with natural joint pain relief products.
Will just any glucosamine work for you? I don’t know the answer to that question exactly, but I do know that quite a few people have stated they tried a natural product and it didn’t work. My answer to that is the same as when I address questions about any natural nutrition supplement, or chemical (synthetic) vitamins.
- Look at the brand and the quality of the product. Do they have the science and research behind their product and do they have the clinical proof that their product will work?
- Remember that natural products are not regulated and companies can pretty much put whatever they want on the label and inside the product. You have to TRUST your brand.
- Synthetic (chemicals) products cannot be compared to natural – they are not the same at all and cannot give the same results.
Glucosamine hydrochloride is the safest and most effective form of glucosamine in supplement form. Many brands use glucosamine sulfate that has not been proven as safe or as effective as hydrochloride.
Shaklee makes many of its natural alternatives to specific health challenges in ‘complex’ form. That means they add supporting ingredients to the natural supplement formulas – in order to get a better result. More than one ingredient work together as a whole in order to provide a more intense effect.
New Advanced Joint Health Complex can help give you arthritis pain relief by combining glucosamine hydrochloride with a fast-acting natural ingredient called Boswellia extract, a strong pain reliever that is related to the COX-2 inhibitors that currently you can only get with prescription meds.
Also included in New Advanced Joint Health Complex are zinc, copper, manganese, and vitamin C – all in scientifically proven amounts that can help you maintain healthy connective tissues for stronger joints.
One thing to note that Joint Health Complex does not contain is chondroitin. That’s because chondroitin interferes with absorption of the glucosamine that has been proven to better impact joint health.
The bottom line is that if you want guaranteed, measureable results, you have to choose a quality product that offers those things. Your body is the most valuable asset that you have, and we really should want to put the best IN to get the best OUT.
A friend recently shared her concern with a medication she was on for arthritis pain. She said that today people are on meds for various things like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, other heart related problems, pain of various kinds, digestive problems, stress or anxiety, and many other health challenges. She heard on the Dr. Oz show that the more meds you are on, the more chance of a drug interaction or some other type of complication related to prescriptions. This is an important reason I would want to talk with my doctor and ask if a natural arthritis pain relief product is something I might try with the goal of replacing a drug that has potential side effects that I don’t want.
