Bet­ter op­tion for joint dis­ease

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Bms Wellness -

THE most com­mon joint dis­ease, os­teoarthri­tis or OA, has long been viewed as re­sult­ing from age-re­lated wear and tear. Rheuma­toid arthri­tis (RA) con­versely, is the au­toim­mune at­tack on joints.

Med­i­ca­tion like painkillers (anal­gesics) to non-steroidal anti-in­flam­ma­tion drugs (NSAID) and steroids do not pre­vent or cure the prob­lem, yet has side ef­fects that can be life-threat­en­ing.

In 2011, a group of re­searchers from Stam­ford Uni­ver­sity dis­cov­ered the link be­tween OA and RA. (1)

They con­cluded that OA de­vel­op­ment trig­gers the au­toim­mune sys­tem to at­tack the joint lin­ing and car­ti­lage as it mis­takes the ex­posed col­la­gen in the car­ti­lage as a for­eign in­va­sive body.

The study re­vealed that early treat­ment of OA de­vel­op­ment can pre­vent arthri­tis. This new find­ing co­in­cided with the de­vel­op­ment of a nat­u­ral in­ter­ven­tion shown to pro­tect tis­sues in age­ing joints called un­de­na­tured type II col­la­gen.

A rev­o­lu­tion­ary un­de­na­tured type II col­la­gen process with­out side ef­fect from chicken ster­num called UC II Flaxi­cal has been shown to de­sen­si­tise the im­mune sys­tem and pre­vent pro-in­flam­ma­tory au­toim­mune at­tacks on age­ing joints.

Clin­i­cal stud­ies done by sci­en­tists at Har­vard Uni­ver­sity on RA pa­tients us­ing UC II Flaxi­cal showed a sig­nif­i­cant de­crease in the num­ber of swollen and painful joints. About 14% of them achieved com­plete re­mis­sion with no side ef­fect found. (2)

In a 90-day trial on the ef­fects of UC II Flaxi­cal on OA pa­tients, Har­vard sci­en­tists found sig­nif­i­cant en­hance­ment in daily ac­tiv­ity, sug­gest­ing im­prove­ment in the qual­ity of life. (3)

Flaxi­cal 3 in 1 is a sup­ple­ment us­ing three patented whole food in­gre­di­ent for joints, bones and in­flam­ma­tion.

As the bone is an in­te­gral com­po­nent of joint func­tion, cal­cium has be­come a pop­u­lar sup­ple­ment in the mar­ket to­day.

Con­sumers be­lieve that es­sen­tial for healthy bone build­ing and main­te­nance, pre­vent­ing bone frac­tures due to os­teo­poro­sis.

In stud­ies and tri­als, UC II Flaxi­cal has shown to help the body re­build joint car­ti­lage and pre­vent au­toim­mune at­tacks on age­ing joints while pro­mot­ing long-term joint health.

It also con­tains ginger ex­tract and ginger juice pow­der to help re­duce joint pain and in­flam­ma­tion.

Flaxi­cal 3 in 1 con­sumers will also en­joy cost sav­ings from a more ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion to their joint prob­lem with su­pe­rior qual­ity patented whole food cal­cium and mag­ne­sium.

Flaxi­cal 3 in 1 is avail­able in se­lected phar­ma­cies with five sa­chets free now with each pur­chase at RM148 per pack in­clu­sive of GST. The pro­mo­tion is in con­junc­tion with Mother’s Day and Fa­ther’s Day and avail­able, while stocks last.
