Understanding the key health benefits of boswellia

,

Boswellia for joint painThere are many health benefits of boswellia. It has been used for thousands of years as botanical medicine and is continued to be used today because of its powerful and fast acting effects. It is more commonly known today as Frankincense (Indian), through it’s Biblical references.

Boswellia (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 of ‘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 extract is rich in boswellic acid and in herbal medicine and 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. Boswellia can also be used to support and hasten the body’s natural healing of wounds, bones and bruises.

Boswellia as a natural painkiller

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

A 2003 study published in the journal Phytomedicine, found that all 30 patients who were reported to have Osteoarthritis knee pain and received boswellia, reported a reduction in the pain they experienced. 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.

Positive weight loss results with Raspberry Ketone

testimonial Due to arthritis, in December 2013 I underwent a complicated left hip replacement.

In October 2014 I was introduced to Nutrabiotics.

I started taking the joint, mobility and flexibility supplement, 10 days later I could feel the difference particularly in my right hip that had taken so much strain over the past 10 years during the regression of the left hip.

I was then introduced to two of their other products Rasberry Ketone extract and the Pure Acai Berry and Green Coffee extract. I was under no illusion that these were  “magic  diet tablets”.

testimonial2Do these supplements assist with weight loss? Would I recommend these supplements to assist with weight loss ? Absolutely, they work very well with a controlled eating plan and even more so with hard work in the gym.

My recovery has been slow, but far greater than I could ever have hoped for.

Many thanks again
Sarah

Fast slimming tips

There’s no doubt that too many people try to lose weight and slim too quickly, often with dangerous crash diets. That doesn’t mean that there are not legitimate methods available for speeding up your slimming progress on a proper weight loss program. Even if you are already succeeding in losing weight these slimming tips cold be of benefit to you.

Tip 1 – Use music as part of your exercise program.

Large numbers of people find just exercising, with nothing to interest their mind, boring. If you can inject something you enjoy into the routine, you are far more likely to stick at it. If you have an iPod, portable music player, it can be ideal to help keep your energy and mind active.

Tip 2 – Consider yourself as the most important factor.

Books or magazines are a great inspiration for many ideas, but they may not directly relate to your unique circumstances. Only you know what your true desired level of weight loss is. Only you know your own capabilities Trying to do too much in the way of exercise can be dangerous. Keep your goals within the realm of possibility and one day you may enjoy achieving them.

Tip 3 – Use technology

You may regard this as cheating, but it isn’t really, merely using technology to your advantage. You can now get machines which tense the stomach muscles while you engage in another activity. It’s no replacement for vigorous physical exercise, but it can be a useful addition to it and your body should also develop improved muscle tone as a side effect of this.

Tip 4 – Do some sit ups.

These exercises are often scoffed at by so many, who think that are a lot of hard work for nothing. To a degree this is true, as you would have to perform a ridiculous number every day to have a noticeable effect. What sit ups can do through is lessen the hunger pangs felt by someone taking in less fat. Although you are not hungry in reality, and your body is taking in enough food, you feel hungry because you are taking in less fat. Doing sit ups at the time of these hunger pangs can be effective in reducing them.

Tip 5 – Take advantage of a premium nutritional supplement.

Dietary food supplements can boost your weight loss through their unique ingredients. Taking a supplement such as Acai Berry or Raspberry Ketones can naturally help support your weight loss and can also have additional nutritional benefits such as helping detox the body.

These fast weight loss tips do not involve crash dieting, and can be genuinely helpful.

Common types of arthritis: understanding joint pain

It’s common for most people to experience aches and pains in muscles and joints from time to time. This is especially common if you exercise regularly or overstretch but many people won’t experience persistent or severe symptoms. There are several common types of arthritis, with more than 10 million people in the UK suffering from some form of the condition. However, it is not just a health issue for older people, around 12,000 children under the age of 16 also suffer from some form of juvenile arthritis.

Arthritis refers to more than 100 different types of diseases which all cause pain, stiffness, and inflammation of the joints. All arthritis conditions involve some form of joint pain. However, the seriousness, duration and degree of the joint pain vary from one type of arthritis to another. There are some familiar symptoms that can be linked to the most common types of arthritis, which include, early morning joint stiffness, tiredness, a general feeling of being unwell and weight loss.

The most common types of arthritis include, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is one of the most common types of arthritis, which is where the joint cartilage is destroyed. This causes the joint to not move as smoothly as it should and can make movement of affected joints difficult and painful. It is sometimes referred to as arthrosis or osteoarthrosis. In other cases of osteoarthritis, the patient experiences bony outgrowth, also known as bone spurs, as well as loss of cartilage particles. The intensity of pain from osteoarthritis can vary from person to person from mild to severe. Osteoarthritis affects mostly people aged 40 plus, however it can be evident in younger people too. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, especially if it has been badly injured, but is most common in the hands, feet, spine, hips and knees.

Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is the second most common type of arthritis in the UK. It is a form of inflammatory arthritis where inflammation of the joints occurs for no particular reason. Inflammatory arthritis is mostly recognised by swelling and inflammation of the synovial membrane, which causes serve pain and stiffness in a persons joints. People with rheumatoid arthritis experience white blood cells in the synovial membrane dividing, growing and multiplying. These lead to inflammation of the joint capsule and synovial membrane, loss of space in the synovial cavity, pain and stiffness in the joint. If there is no arthritis relief and treatment, this may lead to cartilage destruction. In the UK there are around 400,000 people with rheumatoid arthritis and it can affect adults of any age. However, it is more likely to start between the ages of 40 and 50. Genes you inherit from your parents may increase your chances of developing the condition, however genetic factors alone do no cause it.

Living with arthritis
Arthritis can affect people in different ways and pain can vary from day to day. There is no cure for arthritis, but there are some measures to take to help manage the condition. It’s important to keep the joints moving. It is suggested that the stronger the muscles that support the joint, then the less pain you’ll have in the joint. There are number of exercises you can do to help support joint mobility, such as stretching exercises, which can help to ease aches and pains and get the best movement from your joints, as well as strengthening exercises. Swimming is also encouraged, as it’s a great all round form of exercise for arthritis suffers as the joints are supported by the water, which makes it easier to move.

If you are overweight then you should consider reducing your weight to avoid unnecessary strain on the joints. If you are overweight, losing two stone is said to reduce pain in the knee by 50 per cent. Eating a health low-fat balanced diet can also help to improve your general health, and will also help with weight loss. Fruit and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, which help to fight the inflammation associated with arthritis. An antioxidant supplement can also help. Other joint supplements to try include, Chondroitin and Glucosamine supplements and Boswellia, which works as a natural inflammatory and can help sufferers quickly through its fast acting nature.

Turmeric is also a very powerful anti-inflammatory ingredient, it is not only fast acting, but when taken with Boswellia they have been independently proven to work harmoniously, which produces a safe yet effective anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant combination.

If you are suffering from persistent joint pain, or severe symptoms of arthritis then you should visit your GP to get advice on how best to manage your specific condition.
