Arthritis Sufferers Foods

As with most alternative medicine therapies, there is not yet sufficient research to conclude whether fish oil is truly efficacious in relieving the symptoms associated with arthritis. However, early research is encouraging.

In laboratory studies and trails it has been conclouded that fish oil structure of omega-3,is very usefull in reducing stiff muscles and joint soreness that so many people with arthritis seem to sufferer. But, what is not yet knowen is the appropriate dosage or the lenght of treatment for maximum effectiveness.

It has been found, by the researchers that there are possible side effects to taking fish oil supplementation. The main one being the increasing risk of the ability of blood to clot. For a few people, taking fish oil can affect the lenght of time it will take for their blood to clot. This being the case, if a person is taking medications that affect their blood, it is a very important issue.

Fish oil supplementation has also been shown to interact with blood pressure medications. Apparently, taking fish oil supplements while taking high blood pressure medications may cause their blood pressure to lower significantly.

Another possible risk of supplementing with fish oil is that fish can often contain significant levels of contaminants. Fish are often found to be unsafe because of their mercury level. Consuming fish oils could pose a risk, particularly to young children, and women who are pregnant or nursing. Fishes with the highest levels of mercury include swordfish, tuna, king mackerel, tilefish, and shark.

This risk must be avoided and the best way to do that is to call up the manufacturer and ask about their mercury levels.

The good news: beside these risks, consuming fish oils generally causes very few side effects. The side effects that do exist are relatively minor, and may consist of stomach disturbances and gas.

On the fringe of current arthritis treatment, Glucosamine and Chondroitin have not yet been proven by medical research to have health benefits for arthritis sufferers, so why have these two dietary supplements become all the rage?

The said boffins have done some work on these two supplements with animals and it has been found that anti-inflammatory properties are present in both.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are two dietary supplements that have become popular supplements for treating the symptoms of arthritis. Many faithful users have begun to sing the praises of these two dietary supplements.

The question, as always is : do they really work? Well here is some information to help you decide if these supplements are right for you at this time.

What is Glucosamine?

Glucosamine is beneficial to sufferers of osteoarthritis pain — both humans and pets.It is found naturally in the body and can be extracted from animal tissue( crab,lobster or shrimp shells ) Glucosamine has been proven effective in easing osteoarthritis pain, rehabilitating cartilage, renewing synovial fluid, and repairing joints that have been damaged from osteoarthritis.

This arthritis supplement is generally well tolerated. However, side effects can occur. The most commonly reported side effects of glucosamine and include:Nausea/Diarrhea/heartburn/increased intestinal gas and constipation

Like Glucosamine, Chondroitin (or Chondroitin sulfate) can also be found in the fluid surrounding the joints. It can also be found in cattle and sharks.

As for Chondroitin, it also appears to be safe for most people. Some medical researchers believe that Chondroitin can worsen pre-existing conditions, such as asthma, allergies, and certain cancers. The most common side effects of Chondroitin include nausea and stomach irritation.

Conclusion: The agreement among doctors is that Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements could well lessen pain in some patients with Osteoarthritis. Many now believe that there is value in trying these supplements for Osteoarthritis. They do appear to be safe, but doctors are warning patients that the quality and effectiveness of Glucosamine and Chondroitin varies because of the non-regulation. If you want to try them, buy high quality products and there is no better then Aloe Vera Freedom with a 60-day money back guarantee.

Know the Reasons why Calcium Is Vital

It’s well known that adequate calcium is essential for the maintenance of strong, healthy, bones and teeth, and indeed this is where around 99% of the approximately 1.2 kg stored in the average adult human body is to be found. But this is not in fact this vital mineral’s most important function within the body, because calcium is also needed in the blood in very precise quantities to ensure that certain vital physiological processes can carry on unimpaired.

These include the constriction and dilation of blood vessels – essential for the body’s internal temperature regulation, the transmission of nerve impulses, the release of energy for muscle contraction, the secretion of certain vital hormones such as insulin, and the clotting of the blood.

As evidence for the importance of these functions it is only necessary to observe that the body will strip the bones of calcium in order to maintain the necessary blood levels of the mineral should these be in danger of falling too low because of inadequate dietary intake. Since the bones, like all the body’s structures, are in a constant state of regeneration and repair, the potential consequences if this deficiency is allowed to persist over time can be catastrophic.

In extreme cases, deficiency in children and adolescents may lead to the weakness and malformation characteristic of the disease, rickets. In adults, especially older adults, the most obvious consequence may be the loss of bone density known as osteoporosis – a major cause of the greatly increased incidence of the serious fractures which are such a significant risk factor for the health of the elderly.

But there are other problems which may be associated with low intakes of calcium.

There is good evidence to implicate low calcium intake as a risk factor for the development of high blood pressure during pregnancy (pre-eclampsia) in those women who are susceptible to this potentially dangerous condition; and, interestingly, research has shown that supplementation with calcium to a daily intake of 1,000 – 1,200 mg a day may also be effective in reducing blood pressure in the general population. A number of studies have linked low levels of calcium with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and indicate that supplementation may help reduce the severity of these symptoms.

There is even now some evidence that low calcium intakes may tend to encourage the body to deposit more fat within existing fat cells. Although the relationship is not fully understood, it appears safe to say that a plentiful supply of dietary or supplemental calcium is essential for success in the pursuit of any weight loss program.

Given the importance of calcium in all these ways, it’s alarming to note that average intakes for most people in the developed world are known to fall well short of the suggested level, and the figures are particularly serious for adolescents whose growing bones who have the greatest need. Perhaps as many as 75% of boys and 90% of girls in this age group may be calcium deficient.

Dairy products are by far the best sources of dietary calcium and an 8 oz serving of milk or yoghurt, or 1 •½ oz of cheese, will provide around 300 mg of calcium. Leafy green vegetables, with the exception of spinach, are also a useful source, although you would need 3 – 4 servings of, for example, broccoli or kale, to match the calcium obtained from a single standard glass of milk. It should also be realised that The consumption of diets high in protein and salt, ie those characteristic of the affluent Western world, is known to increase the excretion of calcium and consequently the risk of deficiency and associated problems with bone strength and health.

Owing to this, and a number of other possible variables affecting the individual’s need for dietary calcium, the Food and Nutrition Board has set out figures for Adequate Intake (AI) of the mineral rather than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) which it commonly prescribes for vitamins and other vital nutrients. Babies and infants should begin with an intake of around 200 mg per day, rising to 800 mg by the age of eight. Children of nine and over, young people whose bones are still growing, the over 50s, and pregnant or breast-feeding women, will have higher needs and should aim to consume 1,200 -1,300 mg of calcium a day.

To maintain the health and density of fully formed bones, adults between about 20 and 50 should aim to consume 1,000 mg of calcium daily, through a combination of diet and supplements. In all cases, combining this supplementation with at least 400 IU of vitamin D will greatly assist with the absorption of the necessary calcium.

Calcium supplements should also always be taken with food; the recommended upper safe limit for total calcium intake being 2,500 mg, below which there should be no problems. However, since high calcium intakes can adversely effect the absorption of other essential minerals, notably magnesium, zinc and iron, it is recommended that supplementary calcium should always be taken as part of a comprehensive multi-mineral supplement.
