Arthoplex is a powerful combination of ingredients to help with arthritis, osteoarthritis, joint dysfunction, joint pain, joint inflammation, fibromyalgia and more. The Arthoplex formula conatains:
Glucosamine is needed to form glycosaminoglycan and hyaluronic acid molecules which are the main constituents of joint cartilage. It is the joint cartilage that is damaged from osteoarthritis. Glucosamine sulfate may help protect joint cartilage by limiting the breakdown and helping to build up levels of cartilage. Glucosamine has been shown to stimulate chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to support cartilage and collagen. Glucosamine also enters the joint space and is incorporated into proteoglycans, which are cells that form large structures and attract water to the joint space for lubrication of cartilage during movement.
When Glucosamine is taken as a dietary supplement, it may help to relieve the pain, stiffness, and swelling of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disorder that affects 12% of the population. In addition, rheumatoid arthritis sufferers also report improvements with glucosamine supplements. There is no natural food source of glucosamine, however, the shells of crabs, shrimp and oysters do contain it, and this is the source of most of the dietary supplements.
In fact, some studies point out that it is as effective as aspirin and other NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) at relieving arthritis pain and of course with much less risk of causing stomach bleeding or ulcer formation. Thousands of people die a year from taking these NSAID medications. Glucosamine is much safer to take than medications such as aspirin or NSAIDs. The glucosamine and chondroitin found in our products are pure and natural.
MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane is a prevalent dietary supplement which has been widely promoted for a variety of conditions including pain, inflammation and arthritis. MSM is a sulfur containing compound, and, since most people are sulfur deficient unless they eat their fish and meat raw and their vegetables uncooked, it is a good source of sulfur. It is not clear what role MSM plays in the complex chemistry of the human body, but like other sulfur compounds, MSM is a necessary building block for proteins, especially those found in the hair, muscles, and connective tissue of the joints and skin. Sulfur also is found in insulin and bile acid.
Grape seed extract is derived from the small seeds of red grapes, the same kind that are pressed to make wine. A recent study of healthy volunteers found that supplementation with grape seed extract significantly increased levels of antioxidants in the blood. This is no surprise, since grape seed extract is rich in flavonoids which are phytochemicals that have antioxidant properties that some consider even greater than some vitamins, such as C & E. It has been shown that antioxidants prevent and control numerous maladies by protecting cells against the negative effects of unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals. Because joint degeneration can be caused by free radical damage, and antioxidants are substances that search for free radicals and destroy them grape seed extract is an important component of our product. Antioxidants found in grape seeds can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.
Malic Acid and Magnesium supplementation is important for any individual with joint pain or fibromyalgia.
Malic acid is a natural fruit acid which is present in all living cells and has been shown to play a key role in the energy-producing Krebs cycle. It is also known as apple acid because it is found in high concentration in apples, especially sour apples, as well as other fruits and vegetables.
Magnesium is an essential mineral which plays a role in many of the reactions leading to energy production as well. It has been shown that patients with chronic pain and fibromyalgia are often deficient in magnesium. Other studies reveal that patients with fibromyalgia noticed a significant improvement in pain within only 48 hours of receiving the malic acid & magnesium supplements.
Turmeric has been used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for many years as an anti-inflammatory to treat digestive disorders and liver problems, and for the treatment of skin diseases and wound healing. Its anti-inflammatory properties can also aid the inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. A study of people using an Ayurvedic formula of herbs and minerals containing turmeric and Boswellia significantly reduced pain and disability.
