Orthopedic Rejuvenation System+
Currently over 40 million Americans suffer from some form of arthritis. Orthopedic Rejuvenation System offers the nutrients essential to help the body heal itself and nourish the very tissues critical to optimal mobility.
- These formulas were designed to offer broad support to the entire musculoskeletal system. Their benefits are not limited to just one type of condition, rather they nourish the entire body helping it stay in balance during the healing process. Each ingredient was strategically selected for its unique healing properties. Discussed below are some of the key ingredients and the research supporting the therapeutic value.
Bromelain is a natural blend of enzymes derived from the pineapple plant. It is most commonly used as a natural anti-inflammatory. It lessens inflammation by inhibiting pro-inflammatory compounds. It specifically inhibits fibrin that results in less swelling and it blocks kinin production thus decreasing pain as well.1
Devil's Claw has been shown to offer both anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It has been used for centuries as a treatment for arthritic pain and swelling.2
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance found in high concentrations in healthy joints. Once consumed it stimulates the production of cartilage to support healthy joint function. Orally it is absorbed 98% intact.3 It is taken up by cartilage and other connective tissues, where it stimulates the production of chondroitin sulfate and other building block materials like mucopolysaccharides. Glucosamine sulfate has actually been proven to result in better pain relief after taking it for 4 weeks than ibuprofen.4
Proteases help the body during inflammatory conditions and lessen the damage that occurs. Proteolytic enzymes have been shown to be important tools in treating arthritis.5
It has been shown helpful for rheumatoid arthritis.6 One of the proposed mechanisms is that Yucca lessens toxin absorption from the intestines, thus lessening inflammation.
