Whilst nutritional supplements supporting all aspects of health are incredibly popular, unless there is a problem, not many people think about being proactive in nourishing their bones and joints. Constructed from protein and collagen, bones and joints are always in use, whilst also being continuously rebuilt, so be as effective as possible they need as much nutritional support as any other parts of the body.
Joints can be put under strain by a number of factors, including injury, inflammation, diet, age, hormonal inbalances, sport and medical conditions, especially osteoporosis and arthritis. The prevalence of osteoporosis in menopause is a cause for concern for many women, as it increases the risk of bone fractures and can degenerate up to 25% of the skeleton by the time the sufferer reaches 50. Equally concerning, arthritis affects 9 in every 10 people by the age of 60, causing inflammation and pain in the joints, and often making mobility difficult.
With its powerful combination of food-based and herbal ingredients, specifically chosen for their anti-inflammatory properties, Uber Flexi helps support joints and keep them healthy.
The Uber Flexi formula consists of;
Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM) – a source of the essential mineral sulpher, which is involved in a number of key bodily functions including detoxification, tissue building, pain control and regulation of inflammation. Often an excess build-up of fluid in cells or drop in pressure surrounding them can affect the nerves that sense and register pain. Some studies have found that MSM may also help support cell-membrane fluidity, and therefore help in supporting joint health.
Glucosamine HCL – glucosamine is more highly concentrated in joint cartilage than anywhere else in the body, therefore a supplement can be essential in maintaining healthy joints. Studies have shown that due to its higher concentration in the molecule and better stability, glucosamine hydrochloride (HCL) may be the best form. For maximum absorption and utilisation by the body, Uber Flexi uses glucosamine HCL in bioavailable food form.
Bromelain – an enzyme found in pineapple and found to be beneficial by some athletes in helping with wear-and-tear injuries.
Horsetail – rich in silica and mineral salts (calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and sulpher), this herb also helps with calcium absorption and utilisation for bones and connective tissues.
Celery seed – contains coumarins, apiol, and the minerals potassium, phosphorus, iron and sodium, which help the body maintain healthy levels of uric acid and have an alkalinising effect on the blood.
Rosehip – naturally high in antioxidant vitamin C.
Montmorency cherry – packed with nutrients, antioxidants and flavonoids, these sour cherries are considered a superfruit and have been used for centuries as a herbal remedy for pain relief by cultures such as the Native Americans.
Apple cider vinegar – containing pectin, which may help the body with absorbing and flushing out toxins, whilst the acids could help with detoxification. Due to metabolic waste being stored in connective tissue, some studies have linked joint pain and arthritis to toxins accumulating in joints, which apple cider vinegar may help with.
Papain– an enzyme found in papayas that assists with digestion, papain could also be beneficial for those who suffer with either inflammatory or non-inflammatory types of arthritis.
Nettle leaf – naturally high in vitamin C, the phyto-chemical chlorophyll, histamine, beneficial minerals (calcium, silica and iron), acetyl-choline and serotonin.
Ginger – rich in antioxidants.
Tumeric – the bright yellow pigment of this spice contains the active compound curcumin.
Kelp – a powerful detoxifier, kelp may be beneficial for those whose joint pain is a result of a build up of toxins in the body. It contains alginates that bind with toxins and pass them safely through the digestive tract.
Panax ginseng – a rich source of phyto-oestrogen and eleutherosides, which may help support the body’s ability to recuperate.
