Joint stiffness and discomfort is also a consequence of aging. With
advancing age, there’s an increase in certain destructive cytokines
(immune-modulating agents) that contribute to degenerative conditions.
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha) is one such agent. These
pro-inflammatory agents have been implicated in a host of age-related
problems including issues related to joints.3
Blocking the actions of cytokines is crucial for joint health. In
addition to protecting joints from damaging free radicals, replacing
naturally occurring joint-supporting nutrients like glucosamine and
chondroitin is also important.
Inflammatory conditions debilitate millions of adults, resulting in
restricted mobility and reduced strength. Inflamed joints can lead to
extensive damage to surrounding connective tissues, which causes the
hands, feet, and arms to become painful, swollen and stiff.
While conventional methods can produce side effects, Arthro-Immune Joint
Support combines two clinically proven plant extracts into one powerful
formula to help those suffering from inflammation.
Andrographis paniculata has received acclaim for its beneficial
effect on inflammation.34 A
Chilean study involved 60 adults who took either 150 mg andrographis
extract a day or a placebo. Those taking the extract showed dramatic
improvement of several outcomes, including fewer numbers of tender
and/or swollen joints. For joints that remained tender and/or swollen,
the intensity was lessened.35
Arthro-Immune Joint Support contains PARACTIN® Andrographis extract,
which has been used in clinical, animal and in vitro studies that have
demonstrated its efficacy in combating inflammation.
Curcumin is a compound that is universally recognized for its
impressive antioxidant and fluid-regulating properties. In an
as-yet-unpublished double-blind clinical trial, an enhanced absorbing
curcumin was shown to have a beneficial effect on inflammation.36
Arthro-Immune Joint Support also contains BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin®, which
is considered the gold standard curcumin, with bioavailability far
superior to that of most curcumin extracts.
Life Extension’s Arthro-Immune Joint Support provides scientifically
validated plant extracts that have been shown to have significant
salutary effects on tender or swollen joints. Just one capsule a day
provides a potent serving of PARACTIN® and BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin®.
