I Have Found More People Complain About Their Bad Backs Than Their Bad Knees
I guess when you think about your back or your knees, they seem to be the most troublesome parts of our joint structure than most others. Many of our back problems begin with being obese or overweight, and incorrectly lifting heavy objects which can put a tremendous strain on our backs. There are a variety of nutrients that can support healthy joint structures including the back which I list here for your review. The components that I would consider to be the most valuable for healthy joint structure and function including the back, are curcumin, boswellia, devil’s claw and Indian Gooseberry. These four components all contribute to an anti-inflammatory effect and rebuilding of the joint structure. While many people who have listened to my radio show or read my newsletters know that I have a deep respect for curcumin and boswellia, but little has ever been said about Indian Gooseberry and devil’s claw. Indian gooseberry is a small, plum-like berry grown in India that has a powerful effect on immune enhancement correcting the management of cholesterol, and also is a fairly good anti-inflammatory fruit. It is the third most commonly used fruit in Indian medicine known as Ayurvedic. Devil’s claw is interesting in the fact it is a claw like root that is found in South Africa. It is highly anti-inflammatory and several good studies have proven it to be effective for supporting back structure and function. In Europe, devil’s claw is one of the most common herbs sold for both osteo and rheumatoid arthritis. Why I like these four herbs together for back structure and function and arthritis is because they are highly anti-inflammatory and Indian Gooseberry modulates an overactive immune system. If you’re struggling with an arthritic condition and/or a back condition, I would use the four herb combination as good nutritional support.
