Stopping pain with supplements
Natural ways to stop pain
Supplements and pain - The number of people who will be stricken with arthritis is expected to grow from about 16% of the population today to 18% by the year 2020.
Men and women seem to be affected equally between the ages of 45 to 55; after the age of 55, however, women are more likely to be victims of arthritis than men.
Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is not only more common, but also more severe in women after the age of 55.
Arthritis takes second place only to heart disease as a cause of work disability. It results in more than 39 million doctor visits and over 500 thousand hospitalizations; mostly for joint (specifically for the hip) replacements. Every year, more than 100 different diseases effect the joints. These diseases are collectively called Arthritis. Most of the cases are diagnosed as Osteoarthritis, reaching over 20 million.
There are ways to alleviate the painful symptoms of arthritis and even to help eliminate it altogether. Rebuilding the spongy cushion of cartilage between the joints is key. Unfortunately, most people rely upon NSAIDs to assist them, which only mask pain and do nothing to treat their condition. There are many natural substances which can help repair damaged cartilage – specifically Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are the precursors of cartilage, which lines the joints and assure smooth, pain-free movement.
Gelatin has long been known for its ability to help arthritis sufferers because it contains a number of substances used by the body to produce cartilage.
Willow bark has been used for centuries for pain relief. It contains natural salicylic acid that is nearly as potent as aspirin without the side effects of stomach upset and bleeding.
Curcuminoid is a natural anti-inflammatory plant extract. It has been used for centuries for effective pain relief without side effects.
Manganese is vital for normal production and function of the cartilage.
