Active & Fit Complex
Why Our Active and Fit?
Our Active & fit complex contains a unique and intelligent combination of ingredients to support healthy joints and mobility. Our product contains:
Glucosamine: Glucosamine plays an important role in the formation of fluids surrounding joints, tendons, and ligaments, by sending signals to prevent inflammation and cartilage breakdown and repair these tissues. Without it, everyday movements would be very difficult. With age, glucosamine production declines, and aging impacts the strength and mobility of joints, therefore a glucosamine supplement is the perfect aid.
Boswellia: Boswellia is know as an anti-inflammatory and research has shown can ease joint pain and increase mobility, and promote muscle and heart health. Boswellia blocks leukotriene synthesis by inhibiting the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (LOX). LOX plays a major role in inflammation-related problems in the body, particularly around the joints. By inhibiting LOX and blocking leukotriene synthesis, Boswellia may help fight age-related joint pain and inflammation.
Turmeric: Curcumin is a small molecule that gives Turmeric its yellow pigment, and is the most active phytochemical of the four curcuminoids found in turmeric. Research has shown curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory with antioxidant properties. It provides an extra boost for your immune system and can help reduce pain caused by joint-related problems such as arthritis.
Ginger: Ginger, especially as a concentrated powder, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger functions a similar way to COX-2 inhibitors; medicine which is used to treat inflammation and pain. Research has shown it to be effective as a potential treatment for joint and muscle pain.
Galangal: Galangal belongs to the ginger family and is used widely in Thai cuisine. Galangal has inflammatory substances that inhibit histaminic pathways. These anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce arthritis symptoms and ease discomfort.
Onion Bulb: Onions are one of the most widely used vegetables worldwide. Alongside making our food tasty, research shows they are also beneficial to our joint health. They may help reduce pain in inflammation around our joints, potentially because of their flavonoid content such as quercetin. Quercetin can help inhibit 5-Lipoxygenase, like boswellia, and lower inflammation around the joints.
