The ingredients of Happy-Flex explained

Glucosamine HCL

Glucosamine HydroChloride is an important part of the building material the joints are made of. It helps hold the cells in the joints together and the highest concentration of it was identified in the joint cartilage. The Glucosamine Hydrochloride is believed to be the best available form of administration at this moment, it delivers higher concentrations of glucosamine than Glucosamine Sulphate and is more stable. For maximum absorbtion, the Glucosamine HCL in this supplement is a bioavailable food formula which means more of it will get used by the human body.

Methyl Sulfonyl Methane

MSM represents a source of essential mineral sulphur, involved in a multitude of key functions in the body, including pain control, regulation of inflammation, detoxification and tissue building. In most of the cases, the joint pain is caused by the changes in the cell which affects the nerves as well and this translates to painful sensations. It can be due to a build-up of fluid or a drop in the pressure surrounding them. Methyl Sulfonyl Methane may support cell-membrane fluidity and this way it helps with decompressing the affected nerves and reducing the pain.

Rosehip and Montmorency cherry

Due to the fact that the Montmorency cherries are packed with nutrients, antioxidants and flavonoids, they are considered to be a superfruit and used in the herbal medicine for centuries. Its bark, root and fruits have been used as pain relievers by Native Americans. Also, being so rich in antioxidant, vitamin C, it supports the body in its fight against joint inflammation and pain.

Nettle leaf

Nettles are naturally high in chlorophyll, vitamin C, serotonin, histamine, acetyl-choline and beneficial minerals including iron, calcium, silica.

Ginger and tumeric

Both ginger and tumeric are naturally supporting the lower levels of leukotrienes, which cause the pain and inflammation in the body. The pigment of the tumeric (bright yellow) contains curcumin which is responsible for the pain relief property, while the ginger is known to also be rich in antioxidants and also help with the inflammation.

Celery seed

Contains apiol and coumarins, as well as iron, phosphorus, potassium, sodium. Has an alkaline reaction on the blood, supports healthy levels of uric acid in the body.

Panax ginseng

Another species of ginseng, rich in phyto-oestrogen and biologically active ingredients such as eleutherosides, with a role in supporting the overall body recuperative functions.

Apple cider vinegar

Since metabolic waste is often stored in the connective tissue, rheumatologists suggest that joint pain may be linked to the toxins which are accumulating in the joints. As people with painful joints avoid physical activity, this results in a even higher toxic load. The pectin in apple cider vinegar may help to remove the toxins out of the system, while the acids can help with overall detoxification.

Bromelain

Bromelain is an enzyme derived from pineapple juice, which is recognized to help lower the levels of inflammation by stimulating the levels of plasmin (a compound in the body that breaks down fibrinogen, thus presumably reducing inflammation). This effect is achieved without the gastrointestinal distress caused by the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen. Bromelain is also popular among the athletes who suffer frequent wear-and-tear injuries.

Horsetail

This herb is very common and helps support the absorption and utilisation of calcium. It is rich in such compounds such as silica, mineral salts (potassium, manganese, magnesium, sulphur and calcium), it supports the bones and connective tissues. In conditions where there is a deficiency in silica, this is followed by a loss of calcium as well, which causes the demineralisation of bones.

Kelp

Kelp is used to help with removing the toxins from the body. If there's a build-up of these in the joints as a result of metabolic processes, kelp may be useful with the joint pain caused by it. It binds with the toxic chemicals and allows you to pass them safely.

Papain

A derivative from papaya fruit, it assists in the process of digestion. The Arthritis Foundation in one of its articles in the consumer health magazine Arthritis Today, recommends papain as being beneficial to those who suffer from either inflammatory or non-inflammatory types of arthritis. The benefits from taking papain in inflammatory or rheumatoid type could derive from the fact that it increases body's own analgesia, helps recover after injuries and reduces the painful inflammatory state. Non-inflammatory (osteo-arthritis) type sufferers can benefit from papain's ability to help remove the cellular waste products that build up in the joints.

Joint health information

Human body comprises more than 300 joints, varying in size and complexity and depending of their use, these might be under continuous use every day. Some factors can strain the joints and pose a risk to their proper function, such as:

  • Injury
  • Inflammation (including allergies, immune system sensitivities or infection)
  • Diet (such as a diet high in acid-forming foods like dairy and animal protein)
  • Repetitive strain
  • Age
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • High homocysteine
  • Practising sports
  • Various medical conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis
It is considered that by age of 60, 90% of the population has some degree of arthritis.

Arthritis usually develops with inflammation, causing pain, redness, swelling. It is most common during the menopause period, thus the female population being at greater risk. It also increases the risk of bone fractures, which again, are much more frequent in women than men (1 in 3 women and only 1 in 12 men will experience a fracture by the age of 70).

Some people take their skeleton for granted and forget the fact that it is also in a constant change as well and it can degenerate if not supplied with the necessary nutrients. We invite you to consider more closer our blend of nutrients specifically designed for the joints' health &mash; Happy-Flex, a blend of food-based and herbal ingredients for healthier joints.
