    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease causing inflammation and deformity of the joints.

Conquering inflammation and pain: Viva! Acai™

By J. R. Rogers

Our bodies take a beating from injuries; repetitive stress; and, in particular we hurt our lower backs with improper lifting and bending. Of course, arthritis is a big problem for most of us.

However, chronic inflammation and the pain that follows can also be caused by the foods we eat. Much of modern research tells us that joint pain; heart disease; diabetes; and, many more illnesses can be attributed to poor diet choices.

The role of Viva! Acai™

The foods that cause chronic inflammation are some of our favorites. White sugar, all grains; trans fat in fried foods and saturated fats found in grain-fed meats. As well, acidic foods like sodas, high-fructose corn syrup drinks; and even meats and dairy products are factors.

Since we tend to ignore our eating habits, it is important to start doing so. That is, if you want to live a healthier and more pain-free life. I did it by getting myself out of the habit of eating fried foods and moving to more “health-friendly” ones like fortified cereals and fruits. Of course, fish and vegetables help too.

What is critical to gaining some control of chronic inflammation and the host of health problems that flow from it is using a concentrated, anti-inflammatory drink like Viva! Acai™. The staggering amount of antioxidants alone makes a huge difference. And, the results begin to show almost immediately. And, it only takes ¼ oz. a day. It is energizing and for arthritis sufferers, that is a big plus. When you have more energy, the important health component of exercising becomes a lot more fun and easier to handle.

Viva!acai™ is also an incredible source of (healthy) omega fatty acids and fiber as well. It is the perfect supplement for those who suffer arthritis and/or chronic pain issues of any kind. Of course, there are other health benefits associated with using it as well.

Complementing Syn-flex® liquid Glucosamine for arthritis with Viva!acai™ is a smart choice. After all, you do not have to suffer from chronic pain and inflammation. There are choices available to you.

See you next time.


Healthy Foods in Fighting Arthritis


The EatingWell Cobb Salad

Originally developed at a Hollywood restaurant, this classic salad has endured endless interpretation. Our version is fairly true to the original, although we've left the blue cheese optional. Make it a Meal: warm up a crusty baguette and pour a crisp, cold glass of sparkling wine to accompany this salad.

3 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons finely minced shallot
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
10 cups mixed salad greens
1/2 pound shredded cooked chicken breast (1 large breast half) (see Tip)
2 eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and chopped (see Tip)
2 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 large cucumber, seeded and sliced
1 avocado, diced
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (optional) Whisk vinegar, shallot, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl to combine. Whisk in oil until combined. Place salad greens in a large bowl. Add half of the dressing and toss to coat.

Divide salad greens among 4 plates. Arrange equal portions of chicken, egg, bacon, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado and blue cheese (if using) on top of the lettuce. Drizzle the salads with the remaining dressing.

TipsTo poach chicken breast:Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan and add lightly salted water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.To hard-boil eggs: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and run a constant stream of cold water over the eggs until completely cooled.
