Good for the joints
on January 19, 2014
Celadrin is a patented complex blend of special esterified fatty acids that's been proven in numerous clinical studies to promotes flexibility and healthy joint function w/o any adverse side effects. It's one of the newest, most effective natural anti-inflammatory compounds, and has been certified as safe after the administration of over 100 million capsules - the Scientific Acute Toxicity and Ames test screening have validated its safety
Celadrin works similarly to, but much more effectively than the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA from fish oils in joint health. Celadrin’s complex blend of esterified fatty acids; provide many vital and beneficial effects for the inflammatory responses in the body. Celadrin reduces cartilage breakdown in the joints by the anti-inflammatory changes in the body which occur at a cellular level.
Along with Omega-3 fatty acids I'm not really sure of anything that comes close to that level of safety with anti-inflammatory properties. You can take it internally - as in these 500 mg capsules, or you can also apply it topically - which is supposed to aid the joint w/in 1/2 hr of application.
Celadrin has been found to be superior to Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, SAMe and other combinations of these products which are marketed to aid, restore, or heal bone and joint health. In clinical trials glucosamine and chondroitin have never been proven to heal joints or relieve pain. On the other hand, MSM and SAMe both have considerable health benefits, and glucosamine in addition to Celadrin is of some additional benefit in rebuilding the cartilage.
From the site listed below:
"Celadrin® helps relieve the stiffened membrane caused by aging, inflammation and other assaults. Restoration and joint health begins with Celadrin® where it has immediate and cumulative benefits, with no negative side effects. Safety profile of Celadrin® is impeccable. With Celadrin® one is better off tomorrow and the next day than they are today – it just gets better every day as Celadrin® addresses causation not just the symptoms.
Celadrin® works on the cell membrane to allow rapid healing"... "Celadrin® provides the healing of the joint and surrounding tendons and tissues. One does not need the matrix of the bone to repair a broken arm - but with Celadrin® even that broken arm will be repaired faster - naturally.Celadrin provides restoration of a wide range of joint health conditions including sports injuries to joints, muscles, tendons and deep tissue."
That's pretty impressive!
Before I decided to try it I made sure there was solid science to back Celadrin up; it's been clinically studied several times through both the Journal of Rheumatology and the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. Both for oral and topical applications
Celadrin decreases inflammation and lubricates cell throughout the body, restoring fluids that cushion bones and joints to promote flexibility and mobility. Because of the reduction of inflammation delivered by using Celadrin, the joints and surrounding tissue have an opportunity to become healthier.
The capsules are a bit on the large side, and both the oral and topical administration have been proven to be equally effective - either way they're both absorbed a little over 95%. The topical form is delivered through a liposomal formulation.
I would strongly encourage anyone with any type of inflammatory process, like arthritis to give this a try. If you have questions or doubts, please read the following: [...]
And, no I have nothing to do with Celadrin, other than the fact that I use it, and am quite impressed with the scientific findings.
If you don't FEEL a difference after using this product for several months, don't give up on it! Know that this is working at a cellular level, and every 7 years you have an entirely new body - using Celadrin wil help you reduce inflammation, and restore joints as well as tissues from aging and damage.
