Third Generation Arthritis Treatment - Radiance Joint Connection Capsules and Creme

Third Generation Arthritis Treatment - Radiance Joint Connection Capsules and Creme

Tuesday, September 28th 2004

The orthodox treatment of arthritis and other joint, ligament and disc problems including sports injuries is to prescribe non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin, Voltaren®, Brufen® ). These may be effective for short-term relief of pain but they do not correct the problem and their side effects are well known including severe gastro-intestinal upsets, stomach bleeding, dizziness and ringing in the ears. Studies indicate that they may also slow or prevent cartilage regeneration and possibly even hasten its destruction.

An alternative can be found in Radiance Joint Connection® which brings together three natural ingredients in a powerful dosage which combines the latest research in natural anti-inflammatories and joint pain relief, without the side effects - Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroiton Sulfate and Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)

Glucosamine Sulfate is a naturally occurring substance manufactured in the body that declines with age. Glucosamine jump-starts the formation of the cartilage matrix, enabling fresh cartilage cells to reinforce or replace already existing weakened cells that may be hindering joint performance. By helping joints rebuild, glucosamine helps diminish or neutralise pain and increase the elasticity and mobility of connective tissue. A study in Italy showed that glucosamine rapidly enters the blood stream and reached measurable levels in one hour. It can produce major reductions in joint pain, tenderness and swelling, as well as improved physical mobility.

Chondroiton sulphate attracts fluid to the gel-like substance of cartilage that is important for cushioning and carrying nutrients into the cartilage. This gel like substance acts like a sponge between our joints and spinal discs and retains the water needed to help them absorb impacts. As the human body ages, joint cartilage and spinal discs start to lose their ability to retain water and the degeneration process begins.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a naturally occurring sulfur compound. MSM appears to benefit many conditions because it reduces inflammation and improves blood supply which in turn enables the body to work more effectively to heal and repair other conditions. It appears effective for most types of musculoskeletal pain and inflammation, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis and gout.

These three ingredients combined together in Radiance Joint Connection® provide one of the best natural anti-inflammatory remedies.

Also, look for Joint & Muscle Repair cream to use topically. Containing Glucosamine and Condroitin, it is a great way to apply these ingredients directly to the affected area.
