Natural alternatives can be just as effective to fight osteoarthritis

Massage-dog“Because there wasn’t an effective alternative on the market, we developed our own.”

The purpose of many traditional medications used to treat osteoarthritis is to reduce inflammation, but these often include steroidal and non-steroidal medications, both of which have a wide range of side effects whilst not addressing the root cause of the problem.

We’ve always believed that natural alternatives can be just as effective and come with the added benefit of not having these side-effects, but for a long time we were unable to find a product on the market that could be effective, while only using natural alternatives – that’s why we have come up with our own solution.

JointNatural is a product rich in materials that help to support and maintain a dog’s joints, as well as cartilage production. It has anti-inflammatory properties and also includes anti-oxidant agents.

Boswellia Serrata, for example, is just as effective for reversing inflammation as more conventional products. Its principle constituents are boswellic acid and alpha and beta-boswellic acid. It’s also thought to have anti arthritic properties by decreasing glycosaminoglycan degradation and cartilage damage.

Then there’s Turmeric, whose major active constituents are curcuminoids, including curcumin which can be a very effective anti-inflammatory, possibly by inhibiting cox 2, prostaglandins and leukotrines, while Manganese is also a vital component found in JointNatural which can help fight free radicals in the body.

It also contains Zinc. Virtually all cells contain zinc with some of the highest concentrations in the bone. A deficiency can impair the ability to make collagen. It also acts as an antioxidant through the prevention of free radical formation and makes manganese more bio-available.

The value of anti-oxidants shouldn’t be overlooked either. They can protect joints from damage caused by oxidative stress by breaking the chain reaction associated with oxidative damage.

Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant and is a critical ingredient in the body’s production of collagen, a protein needed for healthy bone, cartilage, and connective tissue. In fact, type 2 collagen is a major constituent in the very joint cartilage that deteriorates in osteoarthritis.

So there you have it. After much research we decided that the only way we could genuinely recommend a product that would not only fight the symptoms of osteoarthritis, but the causes too, without the harmful side-effects was to develop our own – so we did.

It’s also great value at just £27.00 for 60 chewable tablets.
