“Supplement your diet with VBG Haskap capsules to feel your best”
Arthritis is a condition in which one or more of your joints are inflamed. This can result in stiffness, soreness, and in many cases, swelling. There are dozens of different arthritis types.
Arthritis is a chronic health condition that can affect your physical health and your mental wellbeing.
The inflammation of this condition can be painful and debilitating. It can affect your life and reduce your ability to do normal things, such as taking care of your responsibilities at home or work. You may start to feel guilty when you can't do what you believe is expected of you. To ensure mobility and quality of life, doctors often prescribe non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and diclofenac. Although these medications can reduce arthritic pain, they may cause bleeding and damage to the gastrointestinal tract. The normal processes that happen in your body everyday causes free-radicals, as a waste. Inflammation results from the affects of free radicals on the body.
With this in mind, the polyphenols present in fruit, such as the Haskap berry, have shown the ability to reduce inflammation by stopping the damage caused by free radicals. Haskap (Lonicera caerulea L.), also known as blue honeysuckle, or honeyberry is native to Siberia, China, and Japan and is fairly new to Canada.
Overall, the results suggest that polyphenols-rich Haskap berry has a potential to control inflammation that may reduce arthritis pain.
The pomace of the Haskap berry, which is highly concentrated in polyphenols, has been encapsulated by eCeuticals Incorporated. If taken two times a day, 30-90 minutes following meals, it may contribute to an overall lower level of inflammation in your body, contributing to better overall health.
