When I first went down this road of natural supplementation, I anticipated the better health, stamina and more youthful appearance and outlook on life. When I started getting various friends and colleagues to try Pure Form Omega®, I got a result I was not expecting. Almost uniformly, all the “early adopters” got rid of their joint pain. Most of my friends were middle-aged, as am I, and still athletically active, but almost all had some form of arthritis (sore knees, shoulders, backs). All reported getting pain relief, easier to walk, skate, ride etc. So how did it work?

Well let’s start with the definition of osteoarthritis, the most common variety. According to the Arthritis Foundation, “osteoarthritis is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting approximately 27 million Americans. OA can affect any joint, but it occurs most often in knees, hips, lower back and neck, small joints of the fingers and the bases of the thumb and big toe. In normal joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. Cartilage provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint motion and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. One in two adults will develop symptoms of knee OA during their lives. Bits of bone or cartilage may chip off and float around in the joint. In the body, an inflammatory process occurs and cytokines (proteins) and enzymes develop that further damage the cartilage.”

 

So basically, arthritis is an inflammatory condition, not just wear and tear, and it is happening at much younger ages than before and much more frequently leading a 300% rise in joint replacement surgery in only 12 years1. How is this possible? We are a walking machine; in fact we can out walk any other animal on Earth! The key is the cartilage, the cushion of the joint. Cartilage has a unique property in the body, it has no direct blood supply. The cells that make and support cartilage (chondrocytes) are completely dependent on the diffusion of oxygen and nutrients through the cartilage itself. So in our world of processed foods and fats, we are introducing damaged fats into the cartilage impairing the ability of the chondrocytes to do their job. So what happens? Inflammation and thinning of the cartilage eventually leading to painful bone on bone rubbing and the need for joint replacement.

 

Pure Form Omega® Natural increases the rate at which oxygen can get to the chondrocytes, decreasing inflammation quickly and preserving the cartilage. You will feel the difference usually in 2 weeks. Try it and get all the other health benefits as well.
