* ARTICLE - Natural Remedies for the Relief of Joint Pain







Article - Natural Remedies for the Relief of Joint Pain

If you suffer from pain and inflammation in your joints, then you’ve probably tried glucosamine and chondroitin, the popular remedies that decrease pain and inflammation and even help re-generate cartilage.

But as good as these two nutrients can be, they’re often not enough. In fact, studies show that as many as half the people who take them get little or no relief. This is probably due to the quality and quantity taken, obviously the source and quantity makes a difference to the results.

There is also the element that as the body works as a whole, therefore other minerals and vitamins have a role to play in the prevention, treatment and maintainance of the joints throughout the body.

What's causing the pain?
Inflammation plays a huge part in most joint pain and is usually the body's way of protecting the area from further damage. Plasma and white blood cells accumulate in the area causing the swelling/puffiness. This swelling cause the stimulation of nerve endings, sending a message to the brain, telling it that "there's a problem here, we're trying to sort out... send pain stimulus to reduce movement please" in response the stimulus is sent and you feel the pain.

Preventing and Treating
So, if the swelling is causing the pain, then the swelling has to be reduced to reduce/stop pain - agreed!

How do you reduce swelling?
There are a few natural ways of doing this: -
1. Elevating the area, so gravity and circulation can enable the draining of the area.
2. Massage - speeds up the circulation and thus the elimination of excess fluids plus stored toxins.
3. Detox - General detoxifying of the body as a whole can be very beneficial for all joint problems. It removes excess fluid, lactic acid build up and crystals, cleanses the digestive track; respiratory system; glands and organs via the bloodstream, reducing and removing inflammation and mucus.
4. Nutrition - There are many foods and supplements on the market that can be used in the diet to improve, treat and maintain healthy joints

Key nutrients to watch for in foods and supplements for joint relief
* Unsaponifiables - 
Plant Sterols e.g. Aloe Vera, Cactus, Avocado Oil, Soy Oil

* Phytonutrients - cell synergising nutrients

* Collagen - cell repair and maintenance proteins (amino acids)

* Anti-oxidants - Vitamins A, C, E, U, Betacarotene

* Minerals - Glucosamine, MSM, Chrondotin

* Alkaline foods - Vegetables, Grain, Seeds, Various Bean Sprouts

What is Unsaponifiable?
Most soaps are made by taking a vegetable oil and adding alkali to it. The part of the oil that makes the soap is called the saponifiable, and the part that’s left over is called the un-saponifiable.

Chemists have known for years that the unsaponifiables of soy and avocado are rich in anti-inflammatory chemicals called plant sterols.

Could these anti-inflammatory chemicals help your joints?
A team of European researchers decided to put it to the test using a particular blend of soy-avocado extract. What they found amazed them:
Not only did the extracts reduce inflammation, but they actually helped re-generate cartilage!
  • In one study, researchers added the soy-avocado extract to a test tube containing human cartilage cells. In just 9 days, the extract increased the production of aggrecan, a key component of cartilage.
  • In another study, they found that the extract reduced levels of interleukin- 1-beta, a nasty compound that destroys your body’s cartilage-producing cells. 
  • In still another study, Australian researchers compared sheep with normal knees to sheep with damaged knee joints. Half the sheep were then given the soy-avocado extract and half were not. At the end of 6 months, the sheep receiving the extract had thicker cartilage than the control group.
  • And in two large-scale human studies, over 200 patients were given soy-avocado extract or a placebo for 3 months. Result: those taking the extract had greater mobility and less pain, and were able to lower their use of other remedies.
So far, 9 different studies have been done on this amazing plant extract. And all 9 have found it effective. In fact, doctors in Europe have been prescribing it for their patients and are reporting fantastic results.

Pain Enzymes

You’ve probably heard about COX-1 and COX-2, two enzymes in the body that cause pain and inflammation in the joints. Many joint remedies focus on blocking these enzymes. E.g. fish oil, white willow bark, philodendron, and many conventional treatments are all COX inhibitors.

While COX inhibitors provide some relief, most people who try them find that the pain and swelling don’t go away completely.
Why? Because there’s a third enzyme in the body that causes pain and inflammation, one that is unaffected by COX-inhibiting remedies.

This third enzyme is called 5-lipoxygenase, or 5-LOX for short. Research shows that 5-LOX releases inflammatory chemicals called leukotrienes — chemicals that can be up to 100 times worse than the COX enzymes!

So how do you reduce 5-LOX?
Some supplement companies will tell you that you have to spend a fortune on “exclusive” exotic herbal formulas that you can get only from them. Most of the time these formulas are sold separately from the regular joint formula, effectively doubling the amount of money you have to spend.

Fortunately, there are many inexpensive herbs that do a fine job of lowering 5-LOX. These include ginger, turmeric and boswellia.

Turmeric: You may know turmeric as the cooking spice that’s used to give rice a yellow color. But turmeric does much more than color food: It’s a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals that may invade your joints. In fact, one study found that the active ingredient in turmeric protects cells with even greater efficiency than vitamin E, beta carotene, or alpha lipoic acid!
Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It inhibits COX-2 and 5-lipoxegenase, two inflammatory chemicals made by your body (see above) which makes turmeric one powerful inflammation-fighter!

Boswellia: Also known as Indian frankincense, boswellia has been used for centuries in Indian Ayurvedic medicine to maintain healthy joints.
And modern science shows that boswellia works by increasing blood flow to the joints, and by inhibiting the body’s production of inflammatory chemicals called leukotrienes. Studies show that people taking boswellia reduced their joint swelling and morning stiffness, while increasing mobility and grip strength.

Ginger: Like boswellia, ginger has also been used for centuries to fight inflammation. And like boswellia, it has recently been subjected to the rigors of modern science. Laboratory studies show that it’s effective at inhibiting both the COX-2 and 5-lipoxegenase enzymes. And clinical trials show that as many as three-quarters of subjects taking ginger feel a reduction in both pain and swelling!

Bromelain: Pineapple and Papaya extracts used to fight inflammation - taken to reduce swelling and pain and also to support digestion and fat metabolisation.

Glucosamine Sulfate: No joint support formula would be complete without glucosamine, the amino sugar that’s been shown effective in dozens of clinical studies. 

Black Pepper: Used to support a health digestive system and reduce inflammation. Helps eliminate mucus. Promotes a sense of well being

Chrondrotin: Again, no joint support formula would be complete without Chrondrotin.

MSM: Methyl Sulfonyl Methane - used in many joint relief compounds.

There are more but these are common and easy to obtain.

  1. Devil's Claw, Cat's Claw, Avocado-Soy Unsaponifiables, Primrose Oil, Capsaicin, Omega-3 fatty acids.
