Here in our research Institute we specialize in formulating products that support specific needs within the body. Because inflammation plays a role in many chronic degenerative conditions, we feel that a natural anti-inflammatory support formula would be beneficial under many circumstances such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other joint and connective tissue disorders. Understanding foods that cause inflammation and avoiding them can also be helpful. These would include the family of nightshades and any foods or oils high in omega six fatty acids, which are highly pro-inflammatory. Supplements for inflammation would certainly include turmeric extract and other supporting factors.
The best anti-inflammatory should be taken several times a day throughout the day for best results. Along with this we would also consider a joint support formula if arthritis or other joint and connective tissue disorders are also present. At the heart of the supplements are the ingredients glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate but there are other factors that should also be included. Joint support is complex and instead of using high amounts of the glucosamine sulfate, which can have side effects when used to excess, we can use other supportive nutrients to enhance the uptake and function of glucosamine thus allowing us to use less and still get adequate or even better results. The best joint supplements will also address connective tissue issues making them the best supplements for joints. In April we will have more information about the best joint supplements and make sure to listen to these amazing testimonials. Check out all of Dr Whiting’s Chronic Disease Special Reports.
