Some of us have tried everything under the sun that we are aware of to try to rid the pain of arthritis. Yet the pain lingers on, like a persistent pest!
Arthritis sufferers include men and women, children and adults. Approximately 350 million people worldwide have arthritis. Over 40 million people in the United States are affected by arthritis, including over a quarter million children! The numbers are staggering and frightening
Many people who suffer from arthritis tend to rely on aspirin, ibuprofen and other non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to control their pain. But unfortunately NSAIDs do nothing to treat the under-lying condition.
Consequently, arthritis pain tends to worsen with time. In addition, NSAIDs can trigger a host of troublesome side effects, including digestive problems and high blood pressure.
Worst of all, new evidence suggests that NSAIDs can aggravate arthritis by blocking synthesis of proteoglycans, key molecules that help draw much needed water into dry, damaged joints. So now we have to worry about this aspect of the treatment
Today, more people are turning to natural treatments to help relieve the pain of arthritis. Like celery seed, it contains 25 anti-inflammatory compounds that can reduce the pain and swelling of arthritis. Consume all the omega-3 oils that you can, they also have inflammation reducing properties that inhibit the development of arterial plaque that leads to heart disease and stoke. The mangosteen fruit is the sole botanical anti-inflammatory with such proven COX-2 inhibition properties. This is a natural COX-2 inhibitor with medical research of the xanthones that are in the mangosteen fruit.
Also for such a seemingly mild mannered vegetable, celery packs a surprisingly strong medicinal punch. Celery seed contains at least 12 compounds that have anti-inflammatory effects, which makes celery desirable as a natural treatment for arthritis.
Then we have recent research that indicates that green tea may both prevent the onset of arthritis and reduce the severity of its symptoms. The reason is that polyphenols antioxidants found in green tea possess anti-inflammatory properties. So here is some information with research that you can educate yourself and find relief for arthritis.
The mangosteen fruit is a botanical which serves as an anti-inflammatory agent and proven COX-2 inhibition properties. Doctors are saying it may be the world's most powerful natural inflammatory agent.
