Joint Pain & Inflammation Relief

Joint pain and inflammation are inextricably linked. Most people experience joint pain to varying degrees at some point in their lives. This is completely normal considering the everyday wear and tear that we put our joints through. Yet, when this pain becomes persistent (chronic), then the condition is usually referred to as arthritis. The word ‘arthritis’ is originally from the Greek ‘arthro-’ (joint) and ‘-itis’ (inflammation). Contrary to popular belief, arthritis is not a new condition or one that is solely associated with old age. It can affect people of all ages and is possibly one of the oldest health concerns known to humankind.

Joint Pain & Inflammation Info

Most people experience joint pain to varying degrees at some point in their lives. This is completely normal considering the everyday wear and tear that we put our joints through. Yet, when this pain becomes persistent (chronic), then the condition is usually referred to as arthritis.

The word ‘arthritis’ is originally from the Greek ‘arthro-’ (joint) and ‘-itis’ (inflammation). Contrary to popular belief, arthritis is not a new condition or one that is solely associated with old age. It can affect people of all ages and is possibly one of the oldest health concerns known to humankind. Fossilised Neanderthal remains from over 100 000 years ago have been analysed and evidence of arthritic-like conditions were discovered in their skeletal structures.

There are many different forms of arthritis (nearly 100 have been identified to date). The most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis (inflammation occurring within the joint itself) rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation in peripheral joints like the hands,) psoriatic arthritis (affecting the skin around the joint). When a joint becomes infected, it is known as septic arthritis.

How ordinary joint pain progresses to arthritis is still not known, even after all these years of humans dealing with the condition. The pain from arthritis is due to inflammation that occurs in and around the joint itself. It is also believed that joint damage from previous afflictions and muscle strains caused by (often forceful) movements against stiff and painful joints are possible root causes of the condition. Hereditary factors may also play a role, and the majority of medical researchers agree that viral and bacterial infections appear to promote the inflammation associated with arthritis.

  • Partner swears by them

    star

    My partner has taken these and as the commercial on the Television states, in ten days you will notice the changes - and he does. He hunts a lot and has noticed a huge difference in the recovery of his knees and mobility is a lot better as a result of taking these. Would highly recommend.
