Joint Freedom

Mar 20, 2008
There are millions of people who suffer from osteoarthritis - a painful condition where the cartilage between joints, which normally acts as a cushion, gradually wears away. The usual course of treatment involves non-steroidals (NSAIDS) and COX-II inhibitors to help control pain and inflammation.

Unfortunately, using prescription drugs often carries the risk of undesired side-effects - peptic ulcers, liver problems, heart disease and more. The recent withdrawal from the pharmaceutical market of drugs like Vioxx and Celebrex are a testament to that. And studies have repeatedly shown that long-term use of NSAIDS can in fact speed up the cartilage breakdown, rather than slow it down.

So millions of people want a viable alternative to pharmaceutical drugs, that also show promise of having an effect on the symptoms of osteoarthritis, but without the possible side-effects.

Recent studies have highlighted a couple of possible contenders: Glucosamine Sulphate has been shown to help maintain and restore cartilage tissue. Particularly when taken in conjunction with Chondroitin Sulphate, MSM and Vitamin C.

The good news is that these are all natural substances that can help maintain the structure and health of cartilage. They also seem to keep the cartilage well-hydrated, which increases its cushioning effect. Yet with none of the potential side-effects of drugs.

Although there are a number of supplements on the market that contain Glucosamine Sulphate, Chondroitin Sulphate and/or MSM, it's best to find a product that has been formulated to give you the most beneficial amount of each, and in the correct proportion to each other. The optimum dosage is: Glucosamine Sulphate (1500mg); Chondroitin Sulphate (1200mg); MSM (750mg); Vitamin C (250mg) per 120ml (4oz) serving.

The product I highly recommend (and use personally for my knees and my shoulder) is Forever Freedom. It has the perfect combination of all the ingredients you need, plus it's has the unique twist of being blended into an aloe vera drink. So it's easy to take, it gets to work immediately, and you get all the advantages and benefits of drinking pure aloe vera.

So for a practical and nutritious way to defend against the signs of joint wear and tear, give Forever Freedom a try. You'll be glad you did.
