Arthritis and its associated aches and pains impacts the lives of millions of people around this country and the world. In fact, the US Center for Disease Control says that 1 in 5 US Adults has been diagnosed with arthritis. They go on to explain that there are over 100 types of arthritis with the most common being osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia and gout.
Arthritis is not just a disease that impacts the elderly, as many people believe. Around 65% of people with some form of arthritis are actually under the age of 65. Arthritis is a serious issue that more and more people deal with on a daily basis, but there is hope for those suffering with it every day.
Ways to Relieve the Pain of Arthritis
There are many ways that someone impacted by the regular pain of arthritis can combat the effects of the disease. The CDC recommends that people with the disease should start with being more physically active, which is good advice for all of us, but vital to prevent the pain from arthritis from getting worse.
We’ve spoken to many people suffering from the many different forms of arthritis, and they typically say that getting more exercise and physical activity into their life is just so hard to get started on when they are always in pain. If you’re already in pain, it doesn’t sound too appealing to go for a hike or hit the treadmill.
That’s where the amazing benefits of moringa can begin to help those afflicted with arthritis.
-Start with some our Moringa Ultimate Microfine Powder in a shake (like our favorite smoothie recipe) before you’re next workout or physical activity.
-Start slow with a 10-15 min walk and build up to more strenuous activity if you have not had any recent exercise. The natural boost of energy will help get you going and all the anti-inflammatory properties of our pure moringa powder help subdue the inflammation commonly associated with arthritic pain.
-Then, rub just a little bit of 100% pure, Extra Virgin Moringa Oil on any joints or areas that you experience chronic pain. The powerful combination will go to work to ease your inflammation, relieve your pain and free you up to get that vital exercise and physical activity.
Getting started with your first workouts and physical activity will put you on the right path for the second most important way to combat arthritis. The CDC recommends maintaining a healthy weight to avoid any unnecessary stress on your joints. We all understand that we should maintain a healthy weight, but the how is where most of us get lost. Adding moringa powder and oil into your daily routine and diet is one of the simplest ways to get on a sustainable path to healthy weight.
Now, Moringa is not a miracle weight-loss solution. You will still need regular exercise (which we now know is vital to treating arthritis anyways) and a healthy diet. Moringa powder and oil just pack more nutrients, vitamins, anti-inflammatories and amino acids than other food known to man, so they naturally compliment a healthier lifestyle. This means you get more of what your body needs with fewer calories. Certainly, that’s a great start to maintaining that healthy weight which is so important to alleviating your arthritic pain.
To be very clear, the CDC also recommends (and so do we) that you consult a doctor. If you have serious arthritic pain, moringa oil will not completely clear up all symptoms and pain overnight, and you should consult your doctor about any plans to treat the disease.
Moringa Linked to Exciting New Treatments for Arthritis in Recent Studies
The effectiveness and accepted use of moringa oil to treat the pain and inflammation of arthritis is backed up by lots of studies. We were most intrigued by the 2008 study that concluded there was significant value and evidence in the effectiveness of “the traditional uses of [Moringa oil] in the treatment of ailments, particularly those related to pain and inflammation.”
This ground-breaking study found significant evidence of anti-inflammatory activity that was dosage specific. In layman’s terms, this means the more moringa oil applied and used, the better the anti-inflammatory activity. It doesn’t mean dump the whole bottle of moringa oil on your sore joints. There are certainly diminishing returns to the anti-inflammatory benefits, so it does not help you more to use too much.
Moringa oil is actually best used in small doses. This study did show they could measure the effectiveness of moringa oil and that it had clear benefits for relieving inflammation. That’s exactly why moringa can help with arthritis pain.
One of the leading experts on arthritis, Dr. Howard Fisher, recently published an article where he sums up some of the best research available for treating arthritis. Dr. Fisher does state there is currently no cure for Arthritis, but that many new treatments are showing promise.
He begins his article by describing how exactly arthritis impacts the body, “The pain from arthritis is due to inflammation that occurs around the joint, damage to the joint from the disease, the daily wear and tear of joint (erosion of the joint capsule), muscle strain caused by continued movement through a functional range of motion against stiff, painful damaged joints and of course the subsequent fatigue to the muscles.”
Dr. Fisher goes on to say that he is most impressed with the results from a study conducted by Goldberg et al (2007) that directly links Moringa to reduction in joint pain for those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and dysmenorrhea. The study concluded that it was the high density of Omega-3 PUFAs that are most responsible for the anti-inflammatory benefits in moringa oil and powder.
The study added that, “When looking at arthritis from a diversity of perspectives, Moringa oleifera has been used to treat the pain and inflammatory conditions caused by arthritis, a disorder affecting more than fifty million Americans, and other degenerative diseases. Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids are found in Moringa oleifera and the ratio is disproportionately omega 3 fatty acids.”
So basically, the pain you feel from arthritis is mostly caused by everything around the joints becoming too inflamed, which in turn continues to put undue pressure on the joint itself. The perpetual cycle is far from enjoyable for those of us that battle it on a regular basis.
That’s exactly why we, at Green Virgin Products, are so excited about the continued focus on proving and legitimizing the use of moringa and its by-products to treat the pain of arthritis. Moringa has been proven in study after study to reduce inflammation and promote a healthier weight level for regular users. These are the two simplest and best reasons that you should be using our Moringa Ultimate Microfine Powder and Moringa Oil if you suffer from the pain of Arthritis.
