Stiffness And Swelling Of Osteoarthritis… And Can
Even Ward Off Wrinkles
Osteoarthritis is a widespread joint disease that destroys cartilage and can lead to deformed bone growth, sometimes with crippling consequences. In elderly people, osteoarthritis of the knee is the leading cause of disability and if you are over 50, there is an 80 per cent chance that you have some degree of osteoarthritis in your joints. Doctors normally prescribe drugs like corticosteroids to control inflammation and non-steroidal anti- inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to relieve pain. Both drugs normally work in the short term but they can have adverse effects – corticosteroids can cause bone loss and the latter gastrointestinal irritation and bleeding. Not only that, but repeated courses of NSAIDs may actually increase the destruction of cartilage over time, and make your osteoarthritis worse. Because of the limitations and potentially harmful side effects of conventional drugs, more sufferers are increasingly turning to natural treatments, such as glucosamine, as a way of safely and effectively managing their arthritis. Discover how your joints and skin can benefit from extra supplies of a
substance your body naturally produces
Glucosamine is effective because, inside the body, it goes through processes that lead to the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) – a natural protein found in the extra-cellular space between the cells of your HA is a major component of synovial fluid, the thick liquid contained in the synovial membrane, which helps to form protective cushions between joints and is also vital to the health of cartilage (the tough, protective tissue which covers the surface of joints).1 In addition to cartilage, HA is also found in the fluid (vitreous humour) of your eye, and is especially abundant in your skin where it helps keep your skin naturally hydrated and improves its elasticity. HA is produced naturally in the body, but as we get older, we produce less HA, which can soon cause problems as low concentrations can result in your joints becoming stiffer and your skin drier and more wrinkled.2, 3 One of the drawbacks of taking glucosamine is that it can take two to three months to work and only a fraction of the glucosamine you take may actually end up being converted to HA in your body, as your stomach acid easily destroys it. Because of this problem of absorption, natural HA (extracted from rooster combs, or wattle) has been injected direct into the synovial fluid of arthritic joints.4, 5 But this method has distinct drawbacks as it can be an inconvenient and expensive treatment, can cause local inflammation or irritation of the skin, and is only effective in the short term.
Now, a breakthrough new formula appears to have finally solved the problem of delivering enough HA (Continued on page 3) 1. Goa KL and Benfield P: Drugs 1994, 47: 536-566 4.

NOTES FROM THE EDITOR. NOTES FROM THE EDITOR.
Dear Reader,If you are one of the 28 per cent of the UK population that suffers from seasonal allergic rhinitis – more commonly known as hay fever – this time of year can spell misery due to the high pollen count.
The condition involves an allergic reaction to pollen and spores. In response your body produces antibodies that release a chemical caused histamine, which triggers a range of unpleasant symptoms such as sneezing, streaming eyes and nose, itching nose and roof of mouth, coughing or wheezing and often headaches, tiredness and irritability too. Your doctor is likely to recommend antihistamine drugs (such as Benadryl or Zyrtec), which block the action of histamine but can cause drowsiness, dry mouth, headaches and indigestion. Nasal steroid sprays like Beconase, which reduce inflammation, are also available but they can have adverse effects like coughing, hoarseness, headaches, nausea, nasal irritation or dryness, sore throat and nosebleeds.
Fortunately, there is a safe, non-drowsy, fast-acting all-natural alternative called Nasaleze Allergy, which has been clinically proven in a number of studies to provide relief from allergy symptoms. This class 1 medical device shields and protects the sensitive lining of the nose against hay fever, dust mites and animal dander. Nasaleze allergy contains a revolutionary cellulose (the main component of cell walls in plants) powder, in addition to peppermint, to trap airborne allergen particles in the nasal cavity. The cellulose powder, which is applied in the nostrils by a simple puffer spray device, turns into a gel on contact with the moisture in the nasal cavity. This gel-like barrier prevents contact between airborne allergens and the mucosa, thereby preventing the release of histamine and the allergy symptoms it triggers. Relief from symptoms occurs in minutes for many patients or within less than three hours for others. In a recent study, Nasaleze Allergy was found to significantly relieve all seasonal allergic rhinitis symptoms during the grass pollen season from both upper and lower airways such as sneezing, runny/itchy nose and eyes as well as nasal inflammation (Int Arch Allergy Immunol 2014; 163: 313-318). Nasaleze Allergy has also been found to significantly reduce the need for drug treatment and other forms of rescue medication (Curr Med Res Opin 2006; 22(2): 275-285). For maximum relief, you should use Nasaleze Allergy before symptoms begin. Gently blow your nose, spray once or twice into each nostril three times a day (or more often if needed). It's important to re-administer the spray if you blow your nose to renew the protective barrier. Nasaleze Allergy has no known side effects and is suitable for children (under supervision), pregnant and breast-feeding women, and with other medication. Until next month, Rachael Linkie, EditorP.S. Another all-natural way to help alleviate hay fever symptoms in as little as 15 minutes a day is contained in the special report inside this month's issue. This revolutionary device not only takes on hay fever, it can also massively reduce asthma attacks and other respiratory problems such as sinusitis and bronchitis.
