Douglas Laboratories Joint Health Pack with Wobenzym N combines several joint-supportive products in one convenient package. It supplies essential vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutrients, designed to support the entire joint and musculoskeletal systems.
Rehab Support Formula™ contains a blend of herbs and additional nutrients specifically formulated to expedite the healing process that follows injury to tissue structure and function. Rehab Support Formula™ provides a broad spectrum of synergistic proteolytic (protein-specific) enzymes: bromelain, trypsin and chymotrypsin. Proteolytic enzymes, also called proteases, are continuously active in reshaping the tissues throughout the body. Trypsin and chymotrypsin also participate in the normal wound healing process. In addition to proteolytic enzymes, Rehab Support Formula™ provides several nutritional cofactors that have important biochemical roles in normal wound healing. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids have functions in the formation and maintenance of healthy connective tissue. Zinc is important for normal immune function. Manganese as well as hydroxyapatite, mucopoly-saccharides, and chondroitin sulfate are involved in bone and cartilage repair. Bromelain, a protease from the pineapple plant, reduces the production of prostaglandins by modulating the arachidonate cascade which may help to lessen the discomfort associated with injuries. Similar action is provided by chamomile and capsicum.
Resvera-Gold® combines several ingredients to support joint and connective tissue health, including resveratrol (a non-alcoholic polyphenolic constituent of red wine), curcumin (antioxidant compounds found in turmeric), quercetin, green tea and boswellia. Recent studies have demonstrated that resveratrol may help modify the body's normal responses in human and animal cells by way of inhibition of the cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. Studies have shown that curcumin, a naturally occurring biologically active group of compounds from Curcuma longa (Turmeric), can function as efficient antioxidants in the body. Bioflavonoids such as quercetin can assist in keeping joints and collagen in a healthy condition. Green tea (Camellia sinensis) has been used for many centuries as a popular beverage worldwide. The polyphenols contained in tea, often referred to as catechins, appear to provide the primary health promoting benefits associated with green tea. One such catechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), has many antioxidant properties, in addition to supporting joint and connective tissue health. Preparations of the Boswellia plant have been used in traditional Indian medicine for joint health for hundreds of years. It is derived from the gum resin of the Indian frankincense plant. Research shows that it appears to inhibit the lipoxygenase pathway, thus making it valuable tool in joint health.
As joints age, hyaluronic acid, the fluid that provides lubrication between joints and connective tissue, begins to break down. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a large polysachharide found in connective tissue. HA forms large, bulky molecular chains that allow joints to move smoothly and provides a cushion between the joints. Over time, this fluid begins to lose its bulkiness and often leaks from the joints, with the resulting friction causing discomfort. Initial (but as of yet unpublished) studies on horses and humans indicate that the oral form of HA may be useful for joint health. Douglas Labs' HA is a high molecular weight vegetarian tablet.
For over 60 years, Wobenzym® has been a trusted name for enzyme supplementation. Developed by leading scientists and used by millions of people worldwide, Wobenzym® N has proven to be a safe and useful product. Wobenzym® N is a systemic enzyme formulation that contains a blend of enzymes from both plants and animals that has been clinically studied for supporting numerous processes in the body. Systemic enzyme supplements work directly in the body once they are absorbed in the small intestine, and are not intended to aid in digestion. Consequently, these enzymes can be utilized to assist the body's various regulatory and communications systems. Wobenzym® N can help to support healthy joints and muscles, support healthy circulation, support the immune system, and also can help support processes that are involved in healthy aging. Wobenzym® N tablets are enteric coated to ensure that the enzymes are protected and are not broken down in the stomach. This allows the enzymes to reach the small intestine where absorption may occur.
Joint Health Pack may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support healthy joint function.
