Most of us don’t give much thought to our joints, unless they are causing us discomfort or pain. But, when joint pain does occur, it can range from somewhat irritating to physically debilitating, and can definitely impact your quality of life. While chronic, severe joint pain should always be evaluated and diagnosed by a medical professional, there are also steps you can take to address the underlying causes of joint pain.
There are a number of physical conditions that can lead to joint pain, including injury and overuse, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis. Yet, one of the most common root causes of joint pain is chronic inflammation. No matter the cause, as you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that joint pain, especially the kind triggered by arthritis, occurs more frequently in women and is highest in adults aged 45-64.*
How Inflammation Triggers Joint Pain
Your body is equipped with natural protective mechanisms to ward of infections and disease. Your white blood cells and immune proteins are like your body’s own superheroes, providing natural defenses from health threats caused by bacteria and viruses. Of course, fighting infection puts a lot of stress on your body, and in some cases, your immune system may trigger an inflammatory response. When inflammation occurs, chemicals released by your white blood cells enter your bloodstream or tissues, increasing the blood flow to that particular area. It is the increased blood flow that leads to redness, swelling and eventually pain. When inflammation occurs in the lining of your joints, it can lead to loss of cartilage, making it vital that you treat chronic joint pain and minimize underling inflammation as soon as possible.
Ways to Treat Inflammation
Dietary changes can definitely help boost your immune system and support your body in fighting inflammation. Studies show that a number of fruits, berries, mushrooms and herbs contain antioxidants recognized for fighting an array of inflammatory conditions. Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, is also proven to fight inflammation and reduce joint pain.
But, given today’s busy lifestyles, it can be hard to get an adequate amount of these essential nutrients though diet alone. The good news is, the natural Herb and Botanical Blend found in IMMUNE++ contains a high antioxidant mix of berries and pomegranate. It also contains a liposomal Vitamin C blend that is absorbed twice as effectively as other types of Vitamin C – it’s proven to remain in the bloodstream for up to 24 hours! Combined, the essential nutritional blends in IMMUNE++ have been shown to work harmoniously to boost your body’s production of white blood cells and T cells. IMMUNE+++ is also fortified with an Opti-Shield Blend of Reishi, Turkey Tail and Maitake mushrooms, that helps defend against certain viruses and bacteria.*
While IMMUNE+++ has been shown to offer exceptional benefits in clinical immune cell enhancement, when combined with a stem-cell support supplement, it can offer even greater benefits when it comes to reducing the inflammation that leads to joint pain. One key study states that the effects of IMMUNE+++ are enhanced when taken with LAMININE, a LifePharm supplement that stimulates the stem cells in your body to combat the signs of aging.
Combining IMMUNE+++ with LAMININE has been shown to produce more white blood cells and T cells in your body compared to simply taking IMMUNE+++ on its own. When it comes to supporting your body’s ability to get to the root of joint pain, IMMUNE+++ helps reduce inflammation, while LAMININE works at the cellular level to stimulate the bone and stem cells in the body to support the joint and cartilage tissue.
