Glucosamine is a naturally-occurring substance that stimulates the body's self-healing abilities to rebuild the damaged cartilage and connective tissues. In tests, people who took at least one gram a day of glucosamine sulfate found a dramatic relief from the pain of osteoarthritis. Not only did they have less pain, but the studies showed that the connective tissues gained the ability of self-healing. When the patients stopped taking these herbs, the relief lasted for six to twelve weeks.
This combination also contains Una de Gato, also known as cat's claw, an herb which also treats inflammation of the joints. It's anti-inflammatory activity brings relief and healing to those suffering from arthritis. Una de gato works very mildly, without the painful side-effects of some arthritis medications.
This is a formula designed to help those suffering from arthritis. To effectively relieve the symptoms of arthritis, this formula combines diuretic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, digestant and alterative herbs.

Most disease causing substances in the body are foreign proteins. The white blood cells attack these foreign substances by excreting enzymes on to them. When there are not sufficient enzymes to work in the immune system, toxic buildups can occur leading to chronic disease such as arthritis and cancer. Enzyme supplementation has been helpful in combatting chronic disease and aging.
Proactazyme is a combination of several enzymes used by the body to break down foods. It contains protease, amylase, glucoamylase, lipase, petinase and cellulase.
Flax Seed Oil
Flax has a long history of use, but recently, scientists have been discovering the value of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids of the constituents of the oil made from its seed.
Flax seed oil is about 55% Omega-3 fatty acid and 20% Omega-6 fatty acid. Omega-3 is important in preventing heart disease because it thins the blood and lowers cholesterol. It also aids the production of prostaglandins which regulate many functions of every body cell including nutrient intake, division, pain sensations and blood clotting. This ability may help regulate arthritis. Omega-6 fatty acid tones the arteries.
