Gut feelings: the gut and joint pain connection
We’ve all heard about how the gut influences our mood, our skin and our immune system. But did you know that your experience of pain could be linked your gut1?
Your gut lining is just one cell thick, and when it becomes compromised due to stress, diet, and an overly hygienic lifestyle, can let foreign materials from your digestive system into your bloodstream. This is called intestinal permeability (or “leaky gut”), and it has been linked to inflammation and chronic pain.
Both natural and conventional pain treatments have upsides and downsides:
- Over the counter (OTC) medication, although helpful for relieving pain in the short term, doesn’t do anything to treat the root cause of pain, can increase abdominal pain and discomfort and irritate the gastrointestinal tract lining.
- Glucosamine and chondroitin have mixed results—relief comes from a high dose over a long period, but includes side effects like heartburn, constipation, diarrhea and nausea.
- Mixed mineral formulas are poorly absorbed, may interfere with other medications, and don’t contain any proteins to support structural repair of your joints.
But there are two natural and effective whole food ingredients that can relieve pain quickly—while supporting a healthy gut!
Turmeric can reduce pain, joint stiffness, improve physical functioning, symptoms of osteoarthritis2 and reduce oxidative stress3, without the side-effects of OTCs4.
But studies show that turmeric’s active ingredients are hard to absorb, and benefits come from high, long-term doses.
That’s what inspired Genuine Health to maximize the absorbability and benefits of turmeric… using fermentation! We’re so fascinated by the benefits of fermentation, that we brought the first fermented supplements to market.
Fermentation doubles turmeric’s bioavailability, enhances its anti-inflammatory action, and amplifies its antioxidants by up to 27x5! Plus, the fermentation process can support healthy gut bacteria that in turn strengthen the gut lining.
To enhance fermented turmeric’s benefits even more, we combine it with the most effective and fast acting natural pain relief ingredient on the market…
Exclusive to Genuine Health, BiovaFlex® eggshell membrane is the strongest form of eggshell membrane that provides relief in just 5 days.
BiovaFlex® is higher in nourishing proteins that can get to the root of joint pain, by helping to rebuild and repair joints. BiovaFlex® is also the only eggshell membrane found to reduce C-reactive protein, a clinical marker of inflammation.
Those taking BiovaFlex® are 5x more likely to experience a 50% reduction in pain versus glucosamine, and 3x more likely to experience a 50% reduction in pain versus a leading prescription joint pain drug.
Plus, natural eggshell membrane can reduce gut inflammation and intestinal permeability6.
