In the rainy days, like today in Dublin, when we cannot see the end of it and we wish to just stay in till it will stop, we are wondering if the joint pain can be a good predictor of the weather. We often hear our friends saying they can feel the rain coming cause the pain in their joints increased.
Have you ever thought if this correlation is a FACT of just a MYTH?
Well, we have. So we asked Mr Google and here is the answer. Are you surprised?
High levels of Vitamin K2 lowered the risk of coronary artery disease by as much as 57%.
And what about all of us taking Statins to prevent the stroke?
Statins were hailed as the most significant treatment for Cardio Vascular Disease and have proved to be extremely effective in that role. The most popular, Lipitor, has been on the market for many years and is a huge earner for Warner – Lambert, now Pfizer. In fact, in 2003 Lipitor became the best-selling pharmaceutical drug in history.
Vitamin K2 is one of the best vitamins for heart health and is available in most Pharmacies under various names – VitaMK7 seems to be the most efficient, Solgar and Just Vitaminsare others. A study of 4,800 people in the Netherlands, known as the Rotterdam Study, by ProfessorJohanna M. Geleijnse showed that high levels of Vitamin K2 lowered the risk of coronary artery disease by as much as 57%. It also lowered calcium build up in the arteries by 52%.
Chocolate, red wine, and other expressions of love can be good for you. Let’s treat ourselves to some Valentine’s tasty specials, at least just a bit!
The stuff of Valentine’s Day may be good for the heart, in more ways than one. Chocolate, red wine, and expressions of love could not only make thumpers go pitter-patter in romantic fashion, they could also lead to better heart health.
According to a growing amount of research, chocolate, red wine, and love can play a role in keeping the blood flowing throughout the body. Experts do not always agree on how these elements boost cardiovascular fitness, nor do they always recommend them as tools for disease prevention. But it’s clear that a little of each isn’t too bad — in moderation.
This composition has a respectable amount of research and clinical studies examining its effectiveness in curcumin absorption. Longvida claims that the formula is 65 times more bioavailable than curcumin alone, and the popularity of Reumex Curcumin seems to prove it!
The next time you’re under the weather, you may want to sip some turmeric tea. Curcumin might help you to fight off a variety of viruses, including herpes and the flu. (But most of the research on this was done in a lab, not on people.) Keep in mind that turmeric is only about 3% curcumin, and your body doesn’t absorb curcumin well, so the occasional cup of tea won’t be a cure-all.
Boswellia is a genus of trees in the order Sapindales, known for their fragrant resin which has many pharmacological uses, particularly as anti-inflammatories.
Boswellia serrata is a plant that produces Indian frankincense, Salai, referred to in Sanskrit as shallaki and in Latin as Olibanum Indicum. The plants are native to much of India and the Punjab region that extends into Pakistan.
In Ayurvedic medicine Indian frankincense has been used for hundreds of years for the treatment of arthritis
Extracts of Boswellia serrata have been clinically studied for osteoarthritis and joint function, particularly for osteoarthritis of the knee, with the research showing a slight improvement in both pain and function compared to a placebo. Positive effects of Boswellia in some chronic inflammatory diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, bronchial asthma, osteoarthritis, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease have been reported. Some see Boswellia serrata as a promising alternative to NSAIDs, warranting further investigation in pharmacological studies and clinical trials.
BOSWELLIN® in Curminol
Boswellin® is a standardized powdered extract from the Gum resin exudates from Boswellia serrata tree, commonly known as Frankincense, with enhanced water solubility and joint health support.
In addition to the active boswellic acids, Boswellin® also contains Polysal, which contributes to its immediate action for joint health.
When somebody tells you they can get all benefits of turmeric just by introducing the root into their diet.. they are terribly wrong.
The taste, of course, the spicy filling on the tongue.. of course. What about the REAL benefits for your health? How much of the root would you need to eat to make sure all active ingredients are actually absorbed?
The researchers brought a fresh perspective to the question: how does Longvida’s free curcumin compare to unformulated free curcumin?With that in mind, the results are even more exciting to see: Longvida’s free curcumin outperformed the unformulated 80% free curcumin in all tested parameters. Longvida® showed greater permeability than 80% in vitro, decreased reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, and prevented apoptic death.2
Longvida® has been studied for various health applications, including the nervous system support, and promotion of longevity and cognitive health. Longvida® may help promote joint health and flexibility, and help to modulate inflammatory responses already within the normal range. Curcumin is also a potent antioxidant and is used in skin products as an anti-microbial and healing agent.
Powered by patented (US Patent 9192644, EP Patent 1993365; additional patents pending) SLCP™Technology, Longvida® Optimized Curcumin is a breakthrough formula of the natural antioxidant curcumin, from the turmeric root. It is optimized to deliver free curcumin into target tissues through the critical bioavailability requirements of permeability, solubility, and stability. Developed in collaboration with elite neuroscientists at UCLA, Longvida® carries a strong safety profile and is self-GRAS.
Curcumin and curcuminoids found in turmeric work as excellent anti-inflammatory agents and help in controlling inflammation in arthritis and preventing it from spreading. It also protects joint as well as synovial fluid from inflammation and does not pose side effects like NSAIDs.
Research shows that curcumin reduces oxidative stress and improves antioxidant defences in arthritis. Curcumin has bone protective properties. Clinical trials as well as studies on cells from arthritis patients show that curcumin supplementation prevents degradation and loss of bone tissue. Curcumin demonstrates various pharmacological action which have therapeutic potential in autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Research suggests that curcumin can destroy the indestructible fibroblast like synoviocytes in rheumatoid arthritis and thereby prevent progression of the disease. Curcumin alters gene expression in order to prevent worsening of symptoms and progression of arthritis. Curcumin has broad spectrum anti-microbial properties and immune boosting properties that help reduce risk of infection in arthritis.
Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and skin protective properties can prevent inflammation occurring in skin in psoriasis to spread to joints in psoriatic arthritis. Curcumin protects the heart from developing cardiovascular diseases as a result of arthritis. It has anti-inflammatory properties that help in preventing spread of inflammation in arthritis to various organs. It can help alleviate fatigue and depression.
The present findings support previous evidence that curcumin is a potential antibiotic resistance breaker. Curcumin, either alone or combined with antibiotics, could provide a novel strategy to combat antibiotic resistance and virulence of M. abscessus.
The study was carried out at the Erasmus University Medical Center, in the Netherland, and is part of the Generation R Study, which looked at nearly 10,000 pregnant Dutch women in a period between 2002 and 2006.
It is estimated that in Europe, 179 000 men and 611 000 women will suffer a hip fracture each year and that the cost of all osteoporotic fractures in Europe is provisionally €25 billion (Melton et al. 2003).
We are always checking the latest news in natural health to bring the best products and share with our customers. That’s why we knew about Sabinsa, which say that recent studies have shown that together, it’s Curcumin C3 Complex and Omega-3 acids can work in tandem to bring about relief under situations where inflammation can cause damage. That was the first step on our way to introduce Curminol – the new Gold Standard in joints health which contains Curcumin C3, Omega-3, Ginger and Boswelia.
Turmeric has been known as a powerful medicinal herb for thousands of years. It possesses miraculous properties helpful in curing a variety of ailments. Curcuminoids are important constituents of turmeric out of which the most effective is curcumin.
