5 Amazing Ingredients for Healthy Joints
This amazing frappe is overflowing with effective ingredients for healthy joints. Here’s how each supports joints, reduced inflammation, reduced pain, and overall wellness.
1. TURMERIC FOR INFLAMMATION AND HEALTHY JOINTS
Turmeric contains an amazingly strong compound called curcumins. While it’s still unknown exactly how they work to decrease joint pain, turmeric’s effects are well documented.
In fact, a recent meta-analysis of curcumin studies concluded that the curcumins in turmeric extract were effective in treating arthritic pain (1). What’s more, animal studies show that curcumins protect cartilage. (2).
Additionally, a study of 50 people who suffer from arthritis found a 58% decrease in stiffness and pain after 90 days with curcumin treatment. In fact, the participants’ C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation, decreased by 16-fold!
2. GINGER FOR PAIN AND JOINT HEALTH
The active medicinal ingredients in ginger are phytochemicals, known as gingerols and shogaols. Ginger has long been used as an herbal remedy to relieve many ailments from stomach issues like nausea and motion sickness to bacterial infections (3).
But when it comes to pain, gingerols’ anti-inflammatory action comes to the forefront to help.
In fact, studies, case studies, and anecdotal reports show that ginger is an effective pain reducer. In one case study from 2014, ginger effectively relieved osteoarthritis within 24 weeks, without any negative side effects (4). Another study from 2014 showed the effectiveness of topical ginger creams for joints (5). And, more studies conclude that gingerols possess anti-inflammatory and analgesic results (6) .
3. CINNAMON’S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES
Chronic inflammation in the body can lead to disease and illness over time, so consuming anti-inflammatory foods can help fight harmful inflammation.
A study from 2018 found that cinnamon supplementation resulted in a significant decrease of serum levels of CRP (an inflammation marker), improvements in blood pressure, and improvements in joint health (less tender or swollen joints) (7).
4. REDUCED JOINT PAIN AND INFLAMMATION WITH BLACK PEPPER
Piperine, the primary component in black pepper, is a strong anti-arthritis nutrient.
In fact, study after study has shown reduced pain, increased healing, and decreased pathology in arthritic animals and humans (8).
What’s more, piperine increases the absorption of another pain-fighting food, turmeric, by up to 10x. It does this by stimulating “transporters” in our intestines that are responsible for absorbing nutrients.
5. COLLAGEN FOR HEALTHY JOINTS
Hydrolyzed collagen is now well-accepted as an effective food that supports healthy joints and skin.
A 2016 study found type II collagen helped support knee health in those with osteoarthritis (10). Furthermore, a 6-month double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled 2012 study suggested collagen hydrolysate could help improve lower back joint pain (11).
Why Not Just Take Ibuprofen Instead?
While ibuprofen is routinely consumed by pain sufferers, over-consumption of NSAIDS is associated with altered gut flora, potential ulcers, and other digestive issues. In fact, many experts consider it dangerous when routinely consumed.
On the other hand, our whipped frappe contains ingredients that effectively support joint health while promoting full body wellness.
