Featured Content from The Arthritis & Glucosamine Resource Center

    1. Glucosamine Side Effects
    Unlike COX-II inhibitors and NSAIDs, glucosamine is a very safe compound. There are, however, two reasons why you wouldn't want to take glucosamine.
    2. Living With Osteoarthritis
    Osteoarthritis is the primary example of degenerative arthritis. It affects approximately 70 million people in the United States. The condition affects both men and women and occurs primarily in individuals over 40 years of age.
    3. What is arthritis in cats?
    Arthritis in cats is the progressive deterioration of joint (articular) cartilage. One or more joints can be afflicted with the condition. Another term commonly used to describe this condition is degenerative joint disease. When the term osteoarthritis is used, it usually refers to an extension of the changes into the bone underlying the cartilage layer.

Antioxidants and Joint Health

By J. R. Rogers

For those of you who are regular readers of our Chronicles, we have talked many times about the benefits of Antioxidants and the relationship to joint care. Free radicals in our bodies contribute greatly to the demise of healthy cartilage.

Coffee Drinkers Rejoice

For the past year or two I have read quite a few articles about coffee. The reason I did so was that I am a great lover of coffee. In fact, I drink it with great pleasure.

Years ago, there were always "cautions" about drinking coffee but no one seemed to say exactly why. Now, it seems that researchers are taking another look and deciding otherwise.

What the Latest News is on Coffee

The word now is that coffee may be one of the healthiest beverages in your diet today because it operates as a major antioxidant. According to researchers, coffee may assist in promoting a healthy heart; reducing the risk of Type II diabetes; and, it is said to reduce pain from exercise. There has also been some research into whether or not coffee may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Now, I should qualify some of what the researchers are saying. First of all, I do not think they condone drinking excessive amounts of coffee. In fact, the studies that I read said that "two cups a day" would likely bring these benefits to you.

For me, those other medical issues would be a great side benefit to the powerful antioxidant qualities of coffee. Of course, I am going to have to start to limit my use to two cups a day if the researchers are correct. For me, that may be a little bit of a challenge.

Joint Care

As the makers of Syn-flex®, we have added ingredients to our product that address this very important issue. There is no question that freeing our bodies of free radicals is part of the equation when it comes to joint care. (You can visit our website at www.pain123.com to get a complete list of ingredients and the role they play in joint care.)

I have no doubt that these researchers are dead serious about the benefits of coffee and I take that to heart.

As I said, if you are a coffee lover as I am, this is all good news.

See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.

This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.

If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.

The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
