Deal of the Week: 15% off TerraCeutics Joint Savior Formula

December 6, 2010

Joint Savior is a comprehensive formula designed to help with joint mobility, inflammation, and pain. Joint Savior™ contains the popular Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM formula with 2 other effective ingredients CMO (Cetyl Myristoleate) and Hyaluronic Acid.

Glucosamine & Chondroitin

Glucosamin & Chondroitin have been a popular combination for joint support for the past 10 years. Glucosamine comes from the exoskeletons of crabs, shrimp & other shellfish. Glucosamine Sulfate has been used clinically in Europe since 1960’s and became popular in the US during the mid-1990’s after the release of the book “The Arthritis Cure” by Jason Theodosakis. Today Glucosamine is the most popular nutritional supplement with annual sales of more than $200 million a year.

The largest clinical trial on Glucosamine Sulfate & Chondroitin is being conducted by the National Institute of Health (NIH) with over 1,500 people involved. The studies found positive results with a 25% improvement as the placebo group. The positive results of the clinical trial not only showed a reduction in pain and swelling but also when combined with Chondroitin it slowed the progression of the disease and helped rebuild damaged cartilage.

Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane (MSM)

MSM came from the research that was done on DMSO by Dr. Stanley W. Jacobs at the Oregon Health Science University. He learned that MSM was a stable metabolite of DMSO which was very stable and odorless.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted. Fifty men and women, 40-76 years of age with knee OA pain were enrolled in an outpatient medical center. MSM produced significant decreases in WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index visual analogue scale) pain and physical function impairment (P<0.05).¹

Cetyl Myristoleate (CMO)

Harry Diehl, a research chemist at the NIH, discovered Cetyl Myristoleate after spending 2 years trying to isolate the substance that protected Swiss albino mice from getting arthritis. Harry Diehl proved that cetyl myristoleate circulates in the blood of mice that made them immune to arthritis. Harry Diehl was so ecstatic about his discovery he approached many large pharmaceutical companies to conduct human clinical trials on CMO. None of the companies were interested, however, because CMO was a natural substance and they would not be able to patent it.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (also called Hyaluronan) occurs in large amounts in many of the places that people with connective tissue disorders have problems such as the joints, the eyes, the skin, and heart valves. Hyaluronic acid is needed to cushion and lubricate joints, eyes, skin, and heart valves.

A study published in the February 2007 issue of food and Chemical Toxicology has confirmed the safety of oral hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a dietary supplement that supports connect tissue health in joints and skin. The research was comprised of two oral toxicity studies involving acute and subchronic tests. Test subjects exhibited no toxicity, even at 33 times the recommended dose, as observed by a review of a variety of biomarkers and histopathological examinations.²

Winter is Coming… Give Your Immune System a Boost!

November 9, 2010

Flavonoids are potent antioxidants that protect the body and fight silent inflammation – the leading cause of many chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, dementia and others. Flavonoid-rich foods include vegetables, tea, red wine and dark chocolate.

There are more than 5,000 flavonoids, but one of the most powerful is Quercetin. It’s one of nature’s best immune boosters and antihistamines – and among the most abundant flavonoids found in food.

Quercetin fights free radicals that can damage cells. But what really makes quercetin unique is that it protects you in three ways. It’s contains antioxidant, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory power. It stops your body from boosting histamine levels when you get sick, which can reduce symptoms like a stuffy nose, congestion and more.

One recent study by The American Journal of Physiology found that quercetin can protect against the flu for immune systems under stress. Another study put Quercetin’s healing powers to the test against the common cold, when University of Michigan researchers tested Quercetin on cells infected with the rhinovirus. Quercetin stopped the virus from replicating and prevented excess inflammation.

In a study to test the strength of Quercetin and vitamin C for fighting free radicals, Quercetin was a more effective antioxidant than vitamin C. So the next time you come down with a bug, treat it with 10 mg of quercetin daily.

The easiest way to get enough Quercetin is to eat dark, leafy, greens, or other dark-colored vegetables like red onions, scallions and kale. Even capers have Quercetin. But, what you may not know is that if you cook those veggies, they lose Quercetin. So it’s best to eat them washed and raw. A good way to remember which fruits have the most Quercetin is that they have it in the skin. That means blueberries, blackberries, cherries, grapes, and, of course, apples.

You can also try supplementing. American Nutrition carries a variety of dosages of Quercetin – along with several other rare and naturalimmune-boosting herbs and nutrients.

    Abnormal Levels of Hyaluronic Acid Linked to Connective Tissue Disorders

    August 24, 2010

    Hyaluronic acid (also called Hyaluronan) is a component of connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate.  Hyaluronan occurs throughout the body in abundant amounts in many of the places people with hereditary connective tissue disorders have problems such as joints, heart valves and eyes.  Hyaluronic acid abnormalities are a common thread in connective tissue disorders.  Interestingly, they are also common biochemical anomalies in most of the individual features of connective tissue disorders such as mitral valve prolapse, TMJ, osteoarthritis, and keratoconus.

    Hyaluronic acid has been nicknamed by the press as the “key to the fountain of youth” because it has been noted that at least some people who ingest a lot of it in their diets tend to live to ripe old ages. ABC News had a show on a village in Japan and hyaluronic acid entitled, “The Village of Long Life: Could Hyaluronic Acid Be an Anti-Aging Remedy?”. (It should be noted that the people in the ABC news show were thought to get high amounts of  Hyaluronic acid from starchy root vegetables their natural diets. They were not taking supplements.)

    While a number of studies have linked abnormal levels of  Hyaluronic acid to either connective tissue disorders (CTDs) or conditions common in CTDs, such as premature aging, there are also a number of studies on Pubmed noting associations of high levels of  Hyaluronic acid to some forms of cancer. With Hyaluronic acid as with other substances in the human body, such as estrogen and cholesterol, there are most likely optimal levels, and disease often occurs when these levels become out of range in either direction. Low estrogen levels have been linked to bone loss, while high estrogen levels have been associated with breast cancer. High cholesterol levels have been linked to heart attacks and stroke, while low levels have been linked to bleeding problems and depression.  Hyaluronic acid has been studied less than either cholesterol or estrogen, but the prudent path would be to assume that the body has optimal levels of Hyaluronic acid, as it does for cholesterol, estrogen and many other substances.

    As such, it is always prudent to consult your doctor before you decide to take Hyaluronic acid or any other type of supplement to make sure it is an appropriate treatment for your particular health condition.

    Joint Health Supplements to Increase Mobility & Flexibility

    July 27, 2010

    We need our joints to run, walk, type, write, and eat, and without them no task of importance can be done. As we age, our joints take a beating; they become stiffer, and begin to hurt as we bend them back and forth. Working out often and living an active lifestyle can only make the problems worse. That’s why many people take proven supplements to increase their joint flexibility and health, as well as decrease pain.

    American Nutrition offers an extensive line of bone and joint supplements to help you continue an active lifestyle. We carry the best joint health supplements, including Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM.

    Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and act as building blocks for the functioning of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been studied and have been found to be critical nutrients that assist in supporting flexibility, comfort and range of motion.

    Glucosamine: Glucosamine is one of the major components involved with the formation of cartilage (critical lubricants and shock absorbers necessary to maintain and restore healthy joint performance). Glucosamine facilitates the renewal of cartilage and helps keep cartilage lubricated to maintain its naturally slippery texture. These mechanisms of action improve the structure of joints.

    Chondroitin: Chondroitin supports existing cartilage by promoting the quality of the synovial fluid — it attracts fluid to act as a spongy shock absorber for the joints. It works together with Glucosamine to promote the healthy flow of water and nutrients into cartilage producing cells.

    When taken together, Glucosamine and Chondroitin work naturally with your body to promote healthy, flexible joints. This process of revitalizing healthy joints takes time and depends on your specific individual nutritional requirements. With daily continued use, you should look forward to experiencing the benefits of taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin.

    MSM: MSM keeps cells from becoming rigid. MSM softens tissue (“the beauty mineral”), and is believed to relieve stress, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, constipation, candida, detoxify the body and increase blood circulation, reduce muscle cramps, and back pain, help muscles to heal, increases energy, alertness, mental calmness, and the ability to concentrate. MSM scavenges free radicals, relieves allergies to food and pollens, helps the liver produce choline, controls acidity in stomach and ulcers, coats intestinal tract so parasites lose ability to hang on, helps with hypersensitivity to drugs, increases body’s ability to produce insulin, is important for carbohydrate metabolism, and speeds wound healing.

    This Patented Advanced Calcium Supplement Actually Builds Bone Density!

    In 1991, Japanese scientists pioneered an ultra-absorbable calcium complex. Today, AdvaCAL is Japan’s leading calcium supplement. AdvaCAL is an advanced natural calcium complex containing calcium hydroxide, calcium oxide and sea-plant amino acids for rapid absorption. The technology used to make AdvaCAL has been awarded patents in both Japan and the United States.

    AdvaCAL Fights The Silent Epidemic!

    Yvonne Sherrer, M.D., author of A Woman Doctor’s Guide to Osteoporosis, calls this dangerous thinning of bone tissue “the silent epidemic.” It affects over 28 million U.S. men and women over age 35, 
    but is most acute in postmenopausal women, where up to one-third of bone mass is lost by age 60.

    Taken daily, however, safe, proven AdvaCAL does what no other calcium supplement has done before. It builds bone density naturally by regulating bone resorption caused by increased parathyroid hormone (PTH) activity. Safe, patented AdvaCAL has superior absorption to stem the tide of crippling bone loss to fight Osteoporosis harder.
