Ingredients: It’s time to stop treating the symptoms of arthritis and joint injury with painkillers that leave your stomach lurching. It’s time to stop sitting out your favourite sport and letting joint pain slow you down. It’s time to stop joint degeneration. Now. Even better, it’s time to start the revolutionary process of regeneration and repair. FACT: The Real Thing Joint Revolution won’t just halt degeneration in damaged joints. It will also help to enhance regeneration and repair. That’s why it’s revolutionising joint care. WHAT’S IN THE REAL THING JOINT REVOLUTION? This joint-juicing power pack is designed to protect your joints and counteract joint deterioration. It contains five inflammation-busting ingredients, optimally combined to defy the joint pain and stiffness caused by arthritis and injury. They are: 1. HYAL-JOINTTM Joint Revolution’s first line of fire is Hyal-JointTM, a natural extract containing the most active form of oral sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronic acid (HA), available today. The Real Thing scours the world to find only the best natural ingredients. And the search for the finest HA has led to Bioiberica, a cutting-edge company in Spain that specialises in joint care and chondroprotection. SMOOTH OPERATOR. Synovial fluid, made primarily of sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid, is the key to painless joint movement. That’s why Hyal-JointTM really lubes-up lagging joints. Synovial fluid, made primarily of HA, bathes the bones and cartilage linings that make up synovial joints like knees, elbows, hips and hands. This lubricating fluid is the key to quality of life when it comes to painless joint movement. Too little synovial fluid, and the joint becomes dry, stiff and inflamed. Friction and shock absorption around the joint worsen, and the protective cartilage layer can even wear away, exposing bone to bone. FACT: Joint Revolution is the ideal supplement for osteoarthritis sufferers, as this degenerative joint condition causes both cartilage damage and a decrease in the quality of synovial fluid in the joint capsule. Hyal-JointTM is a natural HA extract that works to restore the shock-absorptive and friction-reducing power of synovial fluid. Here’s how it will perk up your joints and pick up your pace… LESS WEAR AND TEAR. The improved quality of synovial fluid around joints will help reduce the erosion of cartilage and bones. LESS INFLAMMATION. More HA means less joint inflammation, which leads to more mobility and better joint function. LESS PAIN. Improved joint function can help reduce muscle inflammation, spasm and stiffness, as the pain that radiates from a troublesome joint is contained. WHAT DOES SCIENCE SAY? First-phase trials have shown that Hyal-JointTM is easily absorbed and effectively reduces inflammation – the higher the dose of Hyal-JointTM, the more effective the reduction in joint inflammation. Plus it stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid within the joint, which actively improves synovial fluid quality. RHEUMATOID RESCUE. Research has shown that Hyal-JointTM reduces the concentration of cartilage-destroying prostaglandins in joints affected by rheumatoid arthritis. In an impressive second-phase clinical trial, 20 subjects with osteoarthritis of the knee were given either Hyal-JointTM or a placebo, and their responses measured to gauge changes in quality of life. After just eight weeks of treatment, subjects taking Hyal-JointTM experienced the following: 33% improvement in pain scores 14% improvement in physical condition scores 16% improvement in emotional condition scores Overall reduced pain, better functionality and increased ability to perform daily physical tasks, like walking and climbing stairs. 2. HYDROLYSED TYPE II COLLAGEN Any organism made up of more than one cell just can’t do without collagen. And, because it’s found in connective tissues like bone, tendon and cartilage, neither can you. Type II collagen specifically is the kind found in joint cartilage, and when it’s hydrolysed it can be easily absorbed to help strengthen and nourish ligaments, tendons and joints. FACT: Hydrolysed Type II Collagen is the ultimate joint-building boost. Why? Because it provides the body with the material it needs to successfully build strong cartilage. Joints with sturdy cartilage layers are better equipped to deal with the daily rigours of repetitive movement, friction, compression and impact. Without it, joint injuries loom large, impact shock is poorly absorbed and muscles around the joint become asymmetrically fatigued and imbalanced. That’s why this ingredient is a favourite for athletes and sportspeople. 3. NATIVE TYPE II COLLAGEN A cousin in the collagen family of proteins, Native Type II Collagen consists of fibrils arranged end-to-end in stripy striations. This arrangement makes it extremely strong – mighty enough to resist the forces of muscle contraction and movement. Bioiberica’s stringent manufacturing process ensures that the heroic helical structure of this collagen is not damaged during its extraction. So it comes with all its super strength intact. FACT: Joint Revolution harnesses the force of Native Type II Collagen. This powerful protein protects joints from cartilage damage, inflammation, stiffness and pain. Plus it helps prevent ripple effects like muscle spasm, imbalance and even atrophy. WHAT DOES SCIENCE SAY? Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that comes with joint degeneration, pain and, often, joint deformation and restricted movement. But studies have shown that Native Type II Collagen supplementation has positive effects when used to treat rheumatoid arthritis in primates. This is because it helps make up for the collagen that’s lost through antibody attack. THE TREMENDOUS TWO: GLUCOSAMINE AND CHONDROITIN SULPHATE THE SIMPLE SYNERGY. When glucosamine sulphate and chondroitin sulphate are combined in a supplement they do more than just treat joint damage – they can also actively help to put the arthritic process in reverse. 4. GLUCOSAMINE This natural glucose-based compound is one of the body’s own anti-inflammatories. It’s found in all connective tissues, plus it stimulates the production of collagen, while inhibiting the breakdown of proteoglycans. So glucosamine is not only important for the synovial fluid, cartilage, tendons and ligaments surrounding joints, it’s also essential for healthy mucous membranes, eyes and certain valves in the heart. Despite its multifunctional mastery, glucosamine’s primary role is to maintain healthy joints. It’s used to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, and is an excellent supplement for athletes. This is because it works primarily at the level of articular cartilage – the cartilage at the articulating surfaces of synovial joints. RIGHT FOR ARTHRITIS. Osteoarthritis is a wear-and-tear driven, cartilage-killing machine. But glucosamine can help stop the carnage by stimulating cartilage cell growth, and the reconstruction of cartilage itself. 5. CHONDROITIN SULPHATE This second member of the Tremendous Two brings a double dose of strength and resilience. Firstly, it helps make joint cartilage tauter and tougher by promoting the production of proteoglycans. And secondly it exerts an anti-inflammatory effect by helping to reduce phospholipase A2, prostaglandin and nitric oxide levels. Chondroitin sulphate also helps to shield cartilage from destructive enzymes that cause cartilage breakdown and attracts water to maintain its osmotic pressure. This keeps the cartilage flexible and elastic, an essential requirement for effective articulation of joints. FIGHT FRICTION. Chondroitin sulphate comes with anti-inflammatory and cartilage-strengthening effects. The result? Less friction, which means less joint damage. In osteoarthritis sufferers, chondroitin sulphate can help to: Reduce inflammation Slow the process of cartilage destruction Increase the rate at which the body produces cartilage components Protect cartilage cells, or chondrocytes Decrease the degeneration of components that make up the cartilage matrix. WHAT DOES SCIENCE SAY? Glucosamine sulphate (GS) and chondroitin sulphate (CS) both occur naturally in joints. But when these tremendous compounds are combined in a supplement they do more than just treat joint damage. They can also actively help to put the arthritic process in reverse. And the scientific studies agree… FACT: In an impressive three-year clinical trial in Europe involving groups of over 100 subjects, glucosamine sulphate was shown to prevent the cartilage destruction characteristic of osteoarthritis. In 2000, a French study found that GS can be used to effectively treat patients with osteoarthritis of the spine. One of the trial’s findings was a significant improvement in subjects with pain and inhibited movement caused by spondylarthrosis. Plus, the results showed that these beneficial effects even continued after the subjects had stopped taking the GS supplement! CS has also been through the mill of scientific study. The EULAR Recommendations for treating osteoarthritis of the knee, published in 2003, state that oral CS has an evidence rating of 1A and strength recommendation of A as a treatment for sufferers of osteoarthritis of the knee. In 2005, a two-year, 300-subject trial confirmed this conclusion by showing that, while patients who received a placebo suffered progressive narrowing of joint spaces, the joint spaces of subjects who received CS did not change. In study results published in 1998, CS was also found to be effective in treating knee and finger osteoarthritis. And, as yet unpublished study results show that CS is beneficial for osteoarthritis of the hip. What’s more, it’s been found to be a safe oral supplement that’s totally side-effect free. ATHLETES LOVE IT. Joint Revolution can help sportspeople up their game. The joint-strengthening ingredients mean you’ll spend less time on the sidelines due to wear-and-tear or acute joint injury. WHO NEEDS JOINT REVOLUTION? Suffers of arthritis, injury and joint pain can get sucked into the risky NSAID cycle – they take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (or NSAIDs) to treat the pain, but in so doing they sidestep the problem. This cycle then spirals tighter: joint health doesn’t improve, so movement becomes more restricted, resulting in further joint pain and inflammation – and more NSAIDs. To make matters worse, studies have shown that NSAIDs can cause side-effects like stomach ulcers, blood-clotting problems and even possibly kidney damage. CUT TO THE CAUSE. The Real Thing Joint Revolution targets damaged joints and helps to rev up cartilage repair and regeneration. That’s why it can remove the need to take painkillers and help you escape the NSAID cycle. Clearly, The Real Thing Joint Revolution doesn’t simply stop degeneration – it actually improves the health of damaged joints. The five joint-building ingredients in this supplement will benefit anyone whose joints have taken a beating. But certain ingredients are geared for specific individuals… OSTEOARTHRITIS SUFFERERS score from the potent glucosamine sulphate/ chondroitin sulphate combo. These ingredients reverse the degeneration of cartilage that goes hand-in-hand with osteoarthritis. RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS SUFFERERS will reap the benefits of joint-strengthening Native Type II Collagen and Hyal-JointTM. ATHLETES & RECREATIONAL SPORTSPEOPLE will get all the ingredients their bodies need to maintain functional, flexible joints, lined with healthy cartilage and high-quality synovial fluid. The result: less time spent on the sidelines due to wear-and-tear or acute joint injury. ANYONE WITH JOINT INJURIES can count on Joint Revolution’s relief of inflammation, stiffness and pain. Hyal-JointTM in particular will also help to ease the injured joint, promoting smooth movement and support for the process of repair. WHY IS JOINT REVOLUTION THE REAL THING? QUALITY.
