Osteo-Fast is a synergistic blend of selected herbs that alleviate the symptoms of osteo and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteo-Fast keeps the cartilage in joints healthy, relieves pain and inflammation and help repair previously damaged cartilage.
Ingredients and benefits:
Cetyl myristoleate – (CMO) has achieved truly amazing results in alleviating the symptoms of osteo and rheumatoid arthritis and a host of other chronic conditions. It has widely achieved good results with many autoimmune conditions including multiple sclerosis, psoriasis and prostate problems. Success is further improved by following the dietary recommendations that help the CMO to be better absorbed by the body, and by products that help repair the previously damaged cartilage. CMO has been shown to improve the symptoms of and even put into remission: rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter’s syndrome, Behcet’s syndrome, Sjögren’s syndrome and psoriasis. It has also been found to relieve various types of back pain of undetermined origin (probably arthritis related). Cetyl myristoleate is fatty acid ester that appears to have the same characteristics as the essential fatty acids linoleic and alpha linoleic acids, except stronger and longer lasting. These fatty acids are referred to as “essential” because the human body cannot make them and we must ingest them in our diets. There is absolutely no doubt that CMO, the oral analogue of cetyl myristoleate, is beneficial to alleviating arthritis and host of other chronic ailments. There is clinical evidence, doctor’s reports and a large mass of users telling us that it has worked miracles to reduce their pain and improve their mobility.
Boswellia Serrata – Is derived from the gum resin from the bark of the Boswellia tree found in India. Boswellia reduces inflammation and treats rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis (OA) and bursitis symptoms. It may also be used to treat symptoms of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Boswellic acids – the active components – have strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. They also help prevent cartilage loss and inhibit the autoimmune process, making boswellia a potential therapy for RA in addition to OA.
In a 2004 study, boswellia was tested as a treatment for knee OA. Researchers recruited 30 people with knee OA and gave half the group a daily supplement of boswellia; others got placebo. People who took boswellia reported less knee pain, better mobility and an ability to walk longer distances than those taking placebo. A 2008 study in India, where boswellia is a traditional remedy, found that boswellia significantly improved OA pain and function within seven days and slowed cartilage damage after 3 months.
MSM – is a chemical found in plants, animals, and humans. MSM is used for chronic pain, osteoarthritis, joint inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, bursitis, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, musculoskeletal pain, muscle cramps, scleroderma, scar tissue, stretch marks, hair loss, wrinkles, protection against sun/wind burn, eye inflammation, oral hygiene, periodontal disease, wounds, cuts, and abrasions/accelerated wound healing. It is either taken by mouth or applied to the skin for these uses. MSM has also caused pruritus and increased allergy symptoms in some patients.
Salix Alba – is used to ease pain and reduce inflammation. Researchers believe that the chemical salicin, found in Salix Alba, is responsible for these effects. However, studies show several other components of Salix Alba, including plant chemicals called polyphenols and flavonoids, have antioxidant, fever reducing, antiseptic, and immune boosting properties. Some studies show that Salix Alba is as effective as aspirin for reducing pain and inflammation (but not fever), and at a much lower dose. Orally, Salix Alba extract can cause gastrointestinal adverse effects, but these appear to be less frequent than those caused by NSAIDs
Turmeric – A human study has determined that turmeric extracts are as efficacious and safe as (if not safer than) ibuprofen for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. In a separate study of osteoarthritis patients, those who added curcumin to their treatment plan, had reduced pain and increased mobility, whereas the control group, which received no curcumin, had no significant improvements. A past study also found that a turmeric extract composed of curcuminoids (plant-based nutrients that contain powerful antioxidant properties) blocked inflammatory pathways, effectively preventing the launch of a protein that triggers swelling and pain.
