Antioxidants are the Key to Arthritis Treatment and Prevention

By: Kristy Russ, BScPharm

Taking an antioxidant supplement is the most important thing you can do for your health, especially if you need arthritis treatment. Scientists now agree that all the symptoms we normally associate with aging, as well as just about every disease you can think of (including arthritis) is due to the additive effects of free radical damage to our cells. Free radicals are highly reactive, damaging, microscopic particles that are constantly being produced in our environment (and our own bodies). Antioxidants change them into harmless molecules, so if you build up a good store of them by taking antioxidant supplements, the damage will be minimized.

The gold standard of arthritis treatment is anti-inflammatory medication. This is just a "bandaid" solution that doesn't deal with the underlying cause. Research shows that there are high levels of free radicals in the joints of those suffering with arthritis. This increases the damage to the joints and causes more inflammation, which leads to more pain. Taking an antioxidant supplement prevents further damage and helps the body to repair itself, which should be the focus of any arthritis treatment. The body has an amazing ability to repair itself as long as it is given the right "tools".

If you would like to try this for arthritis treatment, it is important to pick the correct antioxidant supplement. Antioxidants work synergistically, which means that they work better together than any of them alone. You won't get the same results (and sometimes it causes problems) if you take higher doses of just a few antioxidants, than if you choose an antioxidant supplement that has a large variety. Taking the right combination can promote the growth of protective cartilage as well as increase the cushioning fluid in the bursa (no more bone on bone).

After discovering this alternative to arthritis treatment, I recommended the antioxidant supplement regimen to some people, and all of them have had amazing results. They had all previously tried several traditional and alternative arthritis treatments with no success. One of these people no longer needs his other hip replaced, much to the surprise of his doctors, who have never seen such amazing damage reversal ever before in their careers. So I have seen it work first hand.

As a pharmacist, who is dedicated to helping people improve their health, I feel compelled to pass on this important information about arthritis treatment so that as many people as possible can end their suffering. Please feel free to contact me for this antioxidant supplement regimen.
