In addition to a healthy diet, adding these 5 ingredients to your diet can help inflammation and swelling caused by injuries, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, gouty arthritis(gout), and back pain. Use these ingredients for any symptoms that you would take non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (N.S.A.I.D. i.e: Ibuprofen, Motrin, Celebrex) for to reduce the pain.
The following five ingredients have been clinically found to reduce or replace the need for N.S.A.I.D.:
Glucosamine Hydrochloride: The introduction of this form of Glucosamine is documented to be the most effective if you are interested in having the most efficient absorption possible. Glucosamine is manufactured by our bodies - but as we grow older, as with other compounds, we need some help.
The compound helps with your body's natural mechanism of joint lubrication. Glucosamine Hydrochloride vs. Sulfate is recommended because studies show that the Glucosamine sulfate is stabilized with sodium chloride (salt). Many People have dietary restrictions limiting salt intake.
Manganese: Manganese is a co-factor,(a helper) required for Glucosamine to be converted to its active form and ultimately, adequately absorbed. It is important to make sure the Glucosamine supplement contains manganese.
Gotu Cola(Pennywort): Gotu Kola, also known as Pennywort, is a well known natural remedy to assist pain relief and proper circulation of blood.
Ginger: Ginger has been used for centuries for pain relief in musculoskeletal conditions. It is an excellent antioxidant and is known for its analgesic activity.
Celery: Celery increases elimination of urates from the kidneys, assisting your body to fight Gout - an arthritic disease caused by an accumulation of urate crystals at the joints. Celery also reduces inflammation around the joint.
We have found that you can readily find these products at supplement stores but only one offers all of them in one dosage taken twice a day. "Ruflex" is the only one that has all the above ingredients in one pill. "Ruflex", an Australian product from Sunsnatural L.L.C. is available on line, (see below). Australian supplements are desirable, because Australia requires that all supplements be approved by their Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and proven to work as promised, clinically proven with double blind studies.
As always; before taking any supplements your Doctor should be consulted. If you are on blood thinners or scheduled for surgery you should consult your physician before taking any of these supplements. Certain elements included in these vastly improve circulation.
