Cetyl Myristoleate – may help relieve rheumatoid arthritis symptoms by acting as a joint “lubricant” and anti-inflammatory agent.

Cetyl myristoleate (CMO) is the common name for cis-9-cetyl myristoleate. CMO was discovered in 1972 by Harry W. Diehl, Ph.D., a researcher at the National Institutes of Health. At the time, Dr. Diehl was responsible for testing anti-inflammatory drugs on lab animals. In order for him to test the drugs, he first had to artificially induce arthritis in the animals by injecting a heat-killed bacterium called Freund’s adjuvant. Dr. Diehl discovered that Swiss albino mice did not get arthritis after injection of Freund’s adjuvant. Eventually, he was able to determine that cetyl myristoleate was the factor present naturally in mice that was responsible for this protection. When CMO was injected into various strains of rats, it offered the same protection against arthritis. (1)

Hyaluronic Acid  –Studies have show that it may promote healthy joints and skin. As we age, our levels of this acid fall by as much as 50%. This acid is concentrated in the kness, hips and other moving joints. It’s a MAJOR component of both cartilage and the synovial fluid that bathes the joints.  It’s also considered a noninvasive therapy for arthritis sufferers.

MSM – is organic sulfur.  It’s the 3rd largest nutrient found in humans. Many think that we do not get enough sulfur in our diets and sulfur plays a critical role in detoxification. It also has ANTI-INFLAMMATORY  affects. MSM may help improve joint flexibility, reduce stiffness, improve circulation, reduce swelling and improve cell vitality.

Holy Basil –  Studies on animals have shows that that  holy basil has the same effect as a painkiller, a COX-II anti-inflammatory agent, an antioxidant and treatment for bacterial, fungal and viral infections.  Some people also use it for stress relief if they have high levels of cortisol.

Tumeric – Tumeric contains more than 24 anti-inflammatory compounds.  Enough said. 

Ginger – Anti-Inflammatory and antioxidant.

In fact, a University of Miami study concluded that ginger extract could one day be a substitute to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The study compared the effects of a highly concentrated ginger extract to placebo in 247 patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. The ginger reduced pain and stiffness in knee joints by 40 percent over the placebo.

“Research shows that ginger affects certain inflammatory processes at a cellular level,” says the study’s lead author, Roy Altman, MD, now at the University of California, Los Angeles. (2)

Green Tea – an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory with lots of research behind it.

Boswellia Serrata – s a traditional Indian Ayurvedic herb that people use for joint health.  Studies show it’s usefulness for treating osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and inflammatory bowel disease. (3)

Bromelain – Studied quite a lot for it’s usefulness as a powder anti-inflammatory.

A blinded study from Germany, researchers divided 90 patients with painful osteoarthritis of the hip into two groups: one half receiving an oral enzyme preparation containing bromelain for six weeks, while the other half received the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac (sold under the brand name Voltaren® and generic names). They found that the bromelain preparation was as effective as diclofenac in standard scales of pain, stiffness and physical function, and better tolerated than the drug comparator. The researchers concluded, “[the bromelain preparation] may well be recommended for the treatment of patients with osteoarthritis of the hip with signs of inflammation as indicated by a high pain level.”(4)

Skullcap –  Has been used in Chinese medicine to treat allergies, infections, inflammation and cancer. It may also have anti-fungal and anti-viral effects.

Trans-reservatrol is also referred to as Japanese Knotweed and use for those who have Lyme disease by physicians.  It’s considered a anti-inflammatory, protects the nervous system and has anti-microbial properties.

Berberine HCL – Some people claim this is useful for fungal, candida, yeast, parasites, bacteria and viral infections.   Extracts of berberine have shows antimicrobial activity against a wide variety of micro organisms.  It is also considered a potent anti-inflammatory, with research behind it. Has been proven to prevent inflammation in rats and prevent intestial adhesions (5)
