The body is fully healthy if the joints are too. Take Tin Man for example! More than 40 million people in USA have troubles with the joints. It is due to overuse, but MD Fred Pescatore the president of the International and American Association of Clinical Nutritionists said the denominator is inflammation. If that is gone, pain is gone too. Eat healthy foods and omega 3 fat acids, include turmeric and supplements.
D-ribose, magnesium and malic acid are the best
What we think is arthritis pain is from the shortened small muscles and not of the joints, said Jacob Teitelbaum, MD and director of Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers. He Is also the author of From Fatigued To Fantastic (2007) and Pain Free 1-2-3: A Proven Program to Get You Pain Free! (2006). To lengthen the muscles, relax them. That means you need energy. It is a fact of physiology that muscles need energy for relaxing.
When you take the malic acid, magnesium and d-ribose you get this benefit. You need all 3 to mix and get the effect in the end. The ribose is lumber, the malic acid is hammer and the magnesium is handy worker, all those combined and you have power! A regular dose is 5 g ribose, 600 mg malic acid and 40 mg magnesium, 3 times per day in a month. Then 2 times per day. Cut the magnesium a bit if the stool loosens.
A favorite, natural produce and keeps cartilage and joints healthy. Studies found that this soothes pain and improves movement. It is like nonsteroid and Ibuprofen and with no side effects of the NSAIDS like ulcer bleeding in the gastro tract. These supplements come from chitin found in lobster, crab, shrimp too. There is a vegan version too, made of mold and known like Aspergillis niger. There is glucosamine in 3 forms: glucosamine hydrochloride, N-acetyl glucosamine and glucosamine sulfate. The last one has sulfur and makes more collagen in the joints and also removes pain. A good dose is 1500 mg a day, divided.
It is also in the body naturally and makes cartilage elastic. Some studies showed it is linked somewhat to osteoarthritis pain, but not certainly. It decreases inflammation when mixed with glucosamine and MSM, said Vishal Verma, DC chiropractor of Fairfax, Virginia, skeletal and neuromuscular expert. These supplements are also found in mixes with glucosamine. Doses of 1200 mg per day, divided.
This is also known as methylsulfonylmethane. Experts think sulfur in the MSM is found in fruit too, herbs and grains also and somewhat in humans. A study in the journal Osteoarthritis and Cartilage said 3 g MSM daily soothes pain. It is found in tablet form or capsules. Is best when mixed with glucosamine and even chondroitin. A dose is 1-3 g daily, divided.
Comes from the Arnica Montana plant used traditionally for sprains, bruises, swelling and aching muscles. It is like ibuprofen. In a study with osteoarthritis on hands participants, those who had arnica gel topically had less pain and better effect than ibuprofen. Another study claimed similar outcomes in the knee treatments. It can be in gel form, cream, ointment and spray. It can be mixed with calendula, tea tree or other herbs. A dose would be thin layer 3-4 times per day or pellets, tablets…
Famous for antioxidant benefits, this also reduces inflammation and joint problems. A study from April, 2007, Experimental Biology, said this tea has an ingredient called epigallocatechin gallate EGCG which inhibits inflammation and joint issues for those with rheumatoid arthritis. Another study claimed it is great for this problem curing. A dose is 300-400 mg extract per day or 3-4 cups eta per day, unless you have caffeine restrictions.
