Keep Your Moves Smooth

Repeated strain or injury, aging, and even poor lifestyle choices can lead to pain in the tissues that connect your joints, ligaments, and tendons.

Repeated strain or injury, aging, and even poor lifestyle choices can lead to pain in the tissues that connect your joints, ligaments, and tendons. Collectively, these tissues compose a system of structural support known as the extracellular matrix. Breakdown of the tissue in this matrix can lead to ongoing painful conditions.

Fortunately, a revolutionary combination of nutrients and phytonutrients is showing promise as a complement to chiropractic and orthopedic therapy to support tissue health in the extracellular matrix.

Natural Support to Help You Move Free

Tissue-damaging enzymes that digest collagen (the basic building block of connective tissues) can also damage the connective tissues that make up the extracellular matrix. Some expression of these enzymes is healthy, but poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle choices, or chronic injury may lead to overproduction of these enzymes, resulting in tissue damage, inflammation, and pain.

Preliminary research indicates that tetrahydro iso-alpha acids (derived from hops), berberine (a common Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicine), the minerals zinc and selenium, as well as certain B vitamins can reduce the overall expression of these enzymes. This in turn supports the integrity and health of the tissues that constitute the extracellular matrix.

This unique combination of ingredients may help to:

  • support the health and integrity of connective tissue to enhance mobility and quality of life
  • reduce painful inflammation
  • provide a complement to chiropractic and osteopathic bodywork

I'd like to share a little health tip if I may : I suffer from GERD, sometimes it's so bad it's acutally debilitating. I've tried every over-the-counter drug, I've been to the Doctor, tried dieting, prescription-strength Ranitidine (spelling?), nothing worked 100%. In fact, nothing really worked at all. My Mother suggested something very simple - Fennel (or Anise if you like). Two or three pieces of Fennel a day (and of course, cutting down on the junk foods) & I haven't suffered a single symptom of GERD in almost 3 months! Natural remedies DO sometimes work!
