Optimal Chronic for Joint Dysfunction
Fight arthritis, joint pain, headaches, "old" injuries and other chronic conditions with Optimal Chronic. Thousands of Americans live in pain, suffering from joint dysfunction. Day in and day out, they experience aching knees, throbbing shoulders, headaches or backaches. Many suffer the crippling agony of stiff and swollen joints in the fingers and toes.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 43 million Americans have been diagnosed with arthritis or other rheumatic conditions. It is estimated that another 23 million Americans experience chronic joint symptoms but have not been diagnosed. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability, limiting the activities of more than 16 million adults.
Individuals who experience on-going pain and discomfort know that covering the symptoms is not the solution. Taking NSAIDs (anti-inflammatories) and other over-the-counter drugs for pain relief may seem to alleviate the pain for a short time, but the pain comes back and is often more debilitating than before. There is a greater concern for prescribed arthritis medications potentially increasing the risk of cardiovascular events and gastrointestinal bleeding. Anti-inflammatory medications may reduce swelling, but they do not treat the root of the chronic problems or promote the healing of damaged tissues.
Healthy joints have evenly distributed joint space, smooth cartilage, and bone. Due to abnormal motion, overuse, injuries, or heredity, these joints begin to degenerate. Degeneration can occur over time with a gradual onset of symptoms. Damage to the joint can result in decreased joint space, damage to the joint lining, the formation of bone spurs, inflammation, stiffness and pain. Without healthy cartilage, the joints have nothing that acts as a "shock absorber", and they are more subject to wear and tear and to the resulting pain. Joints can become immobile and even deformed.
In order to receive long-lasting relief, it is necessary to utilize a safe and effective formula that not only diminishes pain but also supports healing. Optimal Chronic does just that by utilizing a powerful combination of ingredients including glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine HCl, and chondroitin sulfate for joint repair, yucca powder (the most researched and proven herb for chronic joint pain), MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane), a form of organic nutritional sulfur which aids the body in building flexible healthy cells, and patented organic magnesium, a highly absorbable form proven to help regenerate discs.
