Joint Pain & Inflammation Relief

Joint pain and inflammation are inextricably linked. Most people experience joint pain to varying degrees at some point in their lives. This is completely normal considering the everyday wear and tear that we put our joints through. Yet, when this pain becomes persistent (chronic), then the condition is usually referred to as arthritis. The word ‘arthritis’ is originally from the Greek ‘arthro-’ (joint) and ‘-itis’ (inflammation). Contrary to popular belief, arthritis is not a new condition or one that is solely associated with old age. It can affect people of all ages and is possibly one of the oldest health concerns known to humankind.

Joint Pain & Inflammation Info

Most people experience joint pain to varying degrees at some point in their lives. This is completely normal considering the everyday wear and tear that we put our joints through. Yet, when this pain becomes persistent (chronic), then the condition is usually referred to as arthritis.

The word ‘arthritis’ is originally from the Greek ‘arthro-’ (joint) and ‘-itis’ (inflammation). Contrary to popular belief, arthritis is not a new condition or one that is solely associated with old age. It can affect people of all ages and is possibly one of the oldest health concerns known to humankind. Fossilised Neanderthal remains from over 100 000 years ago have been analysed and evidence of arthritic-like conditions were discovered in their skeletal structures.

There are many different forms of arthritis (nearly 100 have been identified to date). The most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis (inflammation occurring within the joint itself) rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation in peripheral joints like the hands,) psoriatic arthritis (affecting the skin around the joint). When a joint becomes infected, it is known as septic arthritis.

How ordinary joint pain progresses to arthritis is still not known, even after all these years of humans dealing with the condition. The pain from arthritis is due to inflammation that occurs in and around the joint itself. It is also believed that joint damage from previous afflictions and muscle strains caused by (often forceful) movements against stiff and painful joints are possible root causes of the condition. Hereditary factors may also play a role, and the majority of medical researchers agree that viral and bacterial infections appear to promote the inflammation associated with arthritis.

  • Thrilled with this product!

    star

    I have been taking Tumeric supplements for over a year now and this is the fourth brand I have tried. After only 1 month on 1580 complex I am noticing a real improvement in fingers, toes and ankle joint pain. I also sleep really well. This is the best product so far. I also appreciate the excellent service from Good Health team. Thankyou!

  • Recommended Glucosamine by GP

    star

    Started to get pain and 'bent' fingers. Went to see GP, he diagnosed onset of arthritis - and he told me of benefits of Glucosamine: advised obtaining from pharmacy or online, as he could not prescribe anything to help.
    Certain helped pain in fingers, but biggest difference was in knees - had felt stiff and hurt when jumping down - now hardly noticed at all!
    Postal delivery wonderful - virtually overnight service.
