Arthritis affects more Canadian adults than cancer, heart disease, respiratory conditions and spinal cord trauma. (1) Osteoarthritis, the most common of all arthritic conditions, strikes 1 in 10 Canadians and is among the most commonly diagnosed chronic condition in this country today. (2)
Some say Osteoarthritis is the result of simple wear and tear. The body's ability to regenerate bone and connective tissue simply cannot keep up with demand and, over time, degeneration occurs. Although this may in part be true, 'the process contributing to osteoarthritis appears to be able to be stopped and even reversed'. (3, 4)Furthermore, bone and joint degeneration are NOT an inevitable part of aging, and there are measures that can be taken to safeguard your mobility for a lifetime.
Zwell’s Trusted Advisors have created the Joint Health Pack to provide potent, clinically-tested, pain relief from the inflammation associated with OA, without the harmful side effects associated with long-term use of NSAID drugs.
In clinical trials, 94% of users of the Reflexir compound reported significant relief from joint pain. (4) The Reflexir compound is a proprietary blend of two natural and organic herbs; Cat's Claw and Maca Extract. These 100% drug-free, natural plant extracts have been found in clinical studies to turn off the genes that cause inflammation and turn on the master repair genes in the body, not only easing joint pain but actually promoting joint repair, so that you can do the things you love without being limited by pain.
Unlike over-the-counter and prescription pain relievers, all-natural Zwell Reflexir is safe for long-term use without any adverse effects to the gastrointestinal tract or liver.
Zwell Krill Oil
In clinical trials, Zwell Krill Oil reduced arthritis pain by 29% and stiffness by 20% in just 4 weeks. (6) As a source of protection against arthritis pain, Zwell Krill Oil has been found to reduce C-reactive protein (CRP, an indicator of inflammation in arthritis patients) by 19.3% compared to a 15.7% increase with a placebo. CRP was further dropped about 30% after 14 and 30 days in the group being given Krill Oil; arthritis pain was reduced by 28.9% and stiffness was reduced by 20.3%. These findings demonstrate the benefits of Krill Oil for alleviating chronic inflammatory arthritic symptoms.
Zwell Organic Vitamin D3
A recent review conducted by Statistics Canada found that Boomers with insufficient Vitamin D levels were at greater risk for falls and fractures.(7) 1 in 10 Canadians is suffering from Vitamin D insufficiency (8), and Health Canada recommends daily supplementation to ensure adequate intakes. Low Vitamin D status has been linked to poor balance, falls and fractures amongst Boomers because of the critical role Vitamin D plays in the function of muscle and the strength of bones. (9)
With all (or, any one) of these proven supplements, you can begin to relieve your joint inflammation and stiffness, improve mobility and strengthen bones. You don't have to accept joint pain as part of aging. Thousands of Canadians have taken the advice of our Trusted Advisors, and are experience relief.
