Boswellia for joint pain

Boswellia for joint pain

Boswellia for joint painBoswellia (boswellia serrata) is a botanical medicine sourced from the resin of the boswellia tree, which is native to North Africa and India. The particular species ‘Boswellia serrata’ mainly grows in mountainous forests of western and central India. The resin which is secreted naturally to protect the Boswellia trees is tapped and purified for use in powder form. This gum tree resin consists of essential oils, gum, and terpenoids.

Boswellia has been used for thousands of years as botanical medicine and continued to be used today because of its powerful and fast acting effects, but it’s more commonly known today as Frankincense (Indian), through it’s Biblical references.

Boswellia extract is rich in boswellic acid and in herbal medicine, boswellia is often used to help treat joint and bone conditions such as Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and even Asthma and Inflammatory bowel disease. This is because many studies have shown that boswellia may naturally reduce inflammation. In fact there are over 400 independent clinical studies supporting its use.

Besides being an effective anti-inflammatory, boswellia can be an effective natural painkiller and may also prevent the loss of cartilage. A 2008 published study suggested that boswellia may reduce pain and boost physical functioning in people with osteoarthritis of knee and an earlier report from 2006, suggested that boswellia may be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

A study published by the journal Phytomedicine found that all 30 patients with Osteoarthritis knee pain who received boswellia reported a reduction in knee pain. They also indicated an increase in the distance they could walk and flexation of their knee.

Boswellia is an exciting nutrient with many anti-inflammatory health benefits and Nutrabiotics has combined Boswellia Extract with Glucosamine HCL, Chondroitin, Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid to create a specially formulated supplement to help joint pain, mobility, cartilage & bone health.

What is Omega 3

Thinking about adding Omega 3 to your daily diet?

There’s no doubt about Omega 3 offering benefits to lots of people. The essential fatty acids in Omega 3 have been long known for their many health benefits. Studies have shown that the biggest benefits come from docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), these fatty acids are found in fish oils, although you would still get some health benefits when taking Omega-3 from plant sources, it’s recommended that you include Omega-3 from fish oils, either from eating fatty fish at least 3 times per week or buying an Omega-3 supplement.

Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids which are essential nutrients for health. Omega3 fatty acids are needed for numerous normal body functions including controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain. These fatty acids are an essential nutrient, since the body cannot make them therefore we must obtain them through foods or supplements.

Omega 3 for skin

If you’re experiencing dry, flaky skin, then adding more Omega-3 into your diet can help. Omega-3 fatty acids – particularly (EPA) – are essential for healthy skin and hair. EPA helps regulate oil production in your skin. Having plenty of this essential fatty acid in your body helps keep your skin hydrated and prevents it from drying our and ultimately flaking.

Omega3 fatty acids can also help to protect your skin from damage. When skin is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, harmful substances called free radicals are created, which can damage cells and lead to premature aging and even cancer. Omega 3 fatty acids act as an antioxidant that protects your body against such substances. These fatty acids not only protect against sun damage, but can help repair it. When you’re exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, EPA can help prevent the release of enzymes that destroy collagen, warding off sagging skin and wrinkles.

Because of their anti-inflammatory properties, Omega-3s may also help relieve skin conditions like rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.

 

The benefits of including Omega 3 in your daily diet include:

Acai Berry Supplements

What is Acai Berry good for?

Acai Berry SupplementsPure Acai Berry has become extremely popular for people looking to lose weight, but what is Acai Bery? and what makes it so special?

What is Acai Berry?

For hundreds of years the native Amazon people have benefited from Pure Acai Berry which is a rich purple palm fruit tree that grows on river edges and around flood plains and is found in parts of Brazil, Colombia and Peru.

While the benefits of the fruit have been utilised across the Amazon for a long time, it’s only relatively recently that it has been exported due to it being so perishable. However with the latest fleeze drying techniques now available it’s far easier to export whilst also helping lock in as much of the natural minerals as possible so that they are still beneficial when consumed.

What makes Pure Acai Berry so special?

There are certain ingredients that may benefit us due to the natural qualities that they possess. Acai is one of these ingredients. Imagine a food supplement that is packed with essential nutrients that may possibly improve health, clear skin blemishes and help reduce weight.

Freeze-dried Acai Berries are naturally packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, polyunsaturated fatty acids, dietary fiber and amino acids including:

  • Essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6 and 9.
  • Amino acids which play a vital role in the makeup of protein, needed for the growth, repair and cell maintenance.
  • Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and E
  • The minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc

Acai Berry may help:

  • Increase energy levels in the body
  • Reduce weight
  • Improving immunity against sickness
  • Reduce joint pains

Red grapes that are used to make wine consist of anthocyanins; compounds that are high in antioxidants. Acai berries have a higher quantity of anthocyanins than red grapes (up to 30 times the amount). Furthermore Acai Berries comprise of amino acids, essential fatty acids, proteins, vitamins A, B, which are recognised to be one of the body’s detoxification products. The intake of this fruit may help clean the body by reducing the harmful substances existing inside it.

The British Heart Foundation states: “Moderate drinking between one or two units a day has a protective’ effect in preventing heart attacks.” So, while there are benefits, it is obviously not advised to drink large amounts of red wine because of the alcohol levels that this would cause so the intake of Acai Berry may achieve the similar effects but without the negative side effects.

Raspberry Ketone Supplements

What are Pure Raspberry Ketones?

Pure Raspberry ketone supplements

Raspberry Ketones are a  phenolic compound that is the primary aroma compound of red raspberries. It’s what makes the raspberries have their intense colour and gives them the unique flavour and smell.

Pure Raspberry Ketones may help to enhance metabolism and increase body temperature thus accounting for its fat burning properties.

There may also be a connection with the secretion of Adiponectin, a hormone that regulates many metabolic processes and the percentage of fat in the body.  It is not unusual to find overweight people have reduced levels of Andiponectin. Taking a natural supplement like Pure Raspberry Ketone may help to raise these levels and be beneficial to general health. Simply put, higher level of Adiponectin mean lower levels of fat.

Everybody understands the importance of maintaining a healthy body weight – a healthy weight means a healthier body and mind. Pure Raspberry Ketones may support weight loss, especially when combined with a well balanced diet and regular exercise.

Green coffee supplements

What is Green Coffee Extract?

Green coffee extract supplmentsGreen coffee extract is a popular ingredient often found in natural supplements and used by many people who want to lose weight naturally. This is because of a number of studies that have highlighted it may have rich anti-oxidant and fat burning qualities.

To create green coffee extract, the coffee seeds are left unroasted. Instead they’re soaked and then concentrated to create the extract. This is because the roasting process reduces the amount of the chemical chlorogenic acid, which is thought could:

  • Block fat accumulation
  • Boost weight loss
  • Curb carb absorption
  • Help regulate post-meal blood sugar levels

Chlorogenic acid is known to be an antioxidant, which after eating may help to slow down the release of glucose into the bloodstream. When the body releases glucose, the liver releases insulin and this insulin stores the excess glucose as fat. So by slowing the release of glucose, chlorogenic acid may reduce the amount if fat that is absorbed. It’s also thought it may cause the liver to increase metabolism, thus allowing more calories to be burnt.

Nutrabiotics’ Green Coffee Extract supplements don’t include any fillers and only use 100% natural ingredients. Each 100mg capsule – of which we recommend taking twice daily –  contains 50% Chloregenic Acid.
