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.

  • Effective, gentle product!

    I use this product whenever I have muscle strains (post gym). The first thing I noticed was the lovely light texture and subtle fragrance as I was applying it. I found it to make a significant difference in relieving my muscle aches and strains. My muscles felt relaxed and I definitely slept a whole lot better!
    Highly recommended. The price was fantastic, and super efficient delivery. Top notch Healthpost

    Having recently damaged some finger joints through playing sport I started taking these to help with the healing process.
    They have worked excellently as healing process was quicker, pain and inflammation were more manageable compared to a previously similar finger joint injury.
    I will highly recommend this product to anyone with joint issues

    This is a great product. My husband suffers from gout and joint pain, this is plant base, not shell fish. I take it also, notice a difference when we run out.
    So pleased that Health Post is stocking it again. Should have ordered two as they are out of stock again. Can't wait until its back in .
    Big thumbs up for the fast courier.
