MHP Releve 60tabs. The RELEVE comprehensive joint formula is designed to attack joint stress in a more complete and scientific fashion, and addresses a number of fundamental causes of joint pain, connective tissue degeneration, and muscle soreness, including the underlying causes. RELEVE contains glucosamine to help restore joint health, but RELEVE's main mechanism of action in reducing pain and inflammation in joints is its patented COX-2 inhibiting ingredient IsoOxygene . In the last 10 years, the COX-2 paradigm has emerged as one of the most important biochemical systems of the 21 century. The COX-2 enzyme has become a primary model for understanding and treating numerous different diseases. This enzyme is one of the key building blocks that has helped to shed light on our understanding of such diverse pathologies as cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, and most notably arthritis.
• Relieve joint and muscle pain
• Help repair joints
• Help repair connective tissue
• Strengthen bones
• Inhibit COX-2
What are the benefits of RELEVE™: RELEVE employs a number of other benefits to help support joint health and bone health. RELEVE also contains substances that regulate the expression of enzymes in the cells that make bone. These are called osteoblasts, and they create or give rise to the musculoskeletal and connective tissue structures. As they mature, they are associated with the production of teeth and bone. Osteoclasts on the other hand, are responsible for the breakdown of bone, and effect the absorption and removal of bone. In other words, osteoclasts produce joint and bone degeneration. Under stress, various substances are produced in the body that result in swelling, soreness, and destruction of the cartilage in the joints. These substances are called mediators, but technically are known as cytokines and prostaglandin E-2 (PGE2). By inhibiting these mediators, RELEVE can help prevent bone destruction and resorption, or loss of bone and degeneration of connective tissue.
Information about products containing ISO Oxygene: RELEVE employs a number of COX-2 inhibitor botanicals. Most importantly, theRELEVE joint formula contains IsoOxygene, a proprietary, patent pending botanical COX-2 inhibitor that is the gold standard for natural COX-2 inhibitors. IsoOxygene is 20 times more potent and significantly more selective for the COX-2 enzyme than any other botanical currently tested. This means greater results for pain relief, and quicker onset of action. And, the duration of action for relief has been extended to last for hours as a result of the unique micro encapsulation and enhancement of this ingredient into a sustained-release, also allowing better absorption. By inhibiting COX-2, a whole series of diseases can be stopped in their tracks. Most importantly, the pain and inflammation of arthritis, or traumatic injury, can be arrested by therapeutic COX-2 inhibitors. And for athletes and body builders, who put a tremendous amount of stress and strain on their joints and cartilage, COX-2 inhibitors should be part of their daily routine. During and after every workout, damaging COX-2 is being created or induced. Daily use of COX-2 inhibitors can arrest this process, and provide for long lasting joint and overall body health in general. RELEVE's powerful COX-2 inhibiting effect makes it ideal joint formulas for athletes.
