Health Concern:

Weak joints, poor flexibility, limited mobility caused by inflammatory arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, lupus), gout and ankylosing spondylitis (AS)

  • Inflammatory arthritis is characterized by pain, swelling, tenderness and warmth in the joints, as well as morning stiffness that lasts for more than an hour
  • In inflammatory joint pain, the immune system doesn’t work properly and releases inflammatory chemicals that attack joint tissue, may directly activate the nerves of the body and lead to pain
  • The resulting inflammation attacks joint tissues and can cause joint swelling, increased joint fluid, cartilage and bone damage, and muscle loss. Nerves in the joints are activated, causing pain
  • Targeting the inflammation is the best way to limit joint damage, pain and other effects of inflammatory, autoimmune types of arthritis
  • Long-term use of common prescription pain medications may lead to liver injury (DILI), kidney damage, stroke and opiods are addictive

What is shark cartilage?

Shark cartilage is a substance sourced from the skeletons of sharks. Shark cartilage contains several compounds purported to improve health, including proteins known as proteoglycans and glycoproteins. Shark cartilage also contains collagen.

The Shark Cartilage Complex found in Advanced Shark Cartilage contains 8% of glycosaminoglycan and chondroitin sulfate both of which have shown to support cartilage, tissues and joint health. Shark Cartilage is a tough elastic tissue derived from sharks. The cartilage is dried and ground into powder before the extraction. Chondroitin, although found naturally in body, reduces as we age. It’s an essential part of the cartilage and gives it elasticity by retaining water. Chondroitin can reduce the activity of enzymes and substances that break down collagen in the joints.*

Your Health Concern - Inflammatory Joint Pain [ Source – The Arthritis Foundation]

Extract - Inflammatory arthritis is the term used to describe conditions characterized by pain, swelling, tenderness and warmth in the joints, as well as morning stiffness that lasts for more than an hour. The most common forms are rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, lupus), gout and ankylosing spondylitis (AS).

In these diseases, the immune system doesn’t work properly and releases inflammatory chemicals that attack joint tissue. The resulting inflammation attacks joint tissues and can cause joint swelling, increased joint fluid, cartilage and bone damage, and muscle loss. Nerves in the joints are activated, causing pain. The inflammatory chemicals may also directly activate the nerves of the body and lead to pain.

Inflammatory pain may be caused by:

  • Synovitis. The thin membrane (synovium) lining the joints becomes inflamed, releasing chemicals that irritate nerves and increase fluid in the joint.
  • Bone erosions. Damaged, pitted bones in your joints cause pain.
  • Swollen joint capsule. Fluid builds in the joint from the inflamed synovium, causing pressure, stiffness and pain.
  • Ligament damage. The effects of inflammation can damage these bands of flexible tissue that support the joint.
  • Muscle weakness. Reduced muscle strength puts more stress on joints.
  • Joint fusion. Especially in ankylosing spondylitis, small bones that form the backbone (vertebrae) may fuse together, making it harder and more painful to move.
  • Centralized pain. The chronic (long-lasting) pain of inflammatory arthritis can in some cases cause you to become more sensitive to pain.

Early diagnosis and aggressive treatment that targets the inflammation are the best ways to limit joint damage, pain and other effects of inflammatory, autoimmune types of arthritis.

  • The local anti-inflammatory action of GlcN has clearly been demonstrated by many in vitro studies
  • A recent study showed that high intake of GlcN in rabbits with both articular and vascular disease, is able to diminish the general inflammation and reduce atheromatous plaques, suggesting that oral GlcN.S may exert systemic anti-inflammatory actions
  • A recent work shows that in patients suffering from knee OA, GlcN.S reduced pain and improved muscle strength with resistance training in a randomized placebo controlled trial. GlcN.S might also act at distance of the joint, in tissues where its concentration is high such as intestine and liver
  • Individuals with a history of traumatic joint injuries (i.e. meniscal tears, anterior cruciate ligament injury) or subjects engaged in high load ballistic sports with repetitive joint impact presenting a higher risk of cartilage degradation may be targeted. In this setting, GlcN may present a beneficial effect on joint structure since we hypothesize that oral GlcN is locally available into the joint and may favour cartilage repair. Similarly, individuals with early OA (doubtful stage 1 in the Kellgren-Lawrence classification system) could be a target for preventive treatment with GlcN. Ageing people without overt OA is also a potentially good population to target. Finally, individuals with metabolic syndrome constitute an interesting population to follow, since GlcN may demonstrate not only local but also systemic effects.
  • A recent study comparing soccer players (without knee pain and without radiological OA) to healthy but non-sporty young subjects, has shown that treatment with GlcN for 3 months decreases type II collagen degradation (as measured by urinary CTX-II levels) but GlcN did not affect the increase of type II collagen synthesis (reflected by CP-II serum level)

  • Twelve-week use of curcumin complex or its combination with boswellic acid reduces pain-related symptoms in patients with OA. Curcumin in combination with boswellic acid is more effective.

Useful reading - Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium L.): A systematic review [Source – National Institute of Health]

  • T. parthenium (L.) contains many sesquiterpene lactones, with higher concentration of parthenolide lipophilic and polar flavonoids in the leaves and the flower heads. The plant also contains high percentage of sterols and triterpenes in the roots. Flowers and leaves and parthenolide showed significant analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic activities, which confirmed the folk use of feverfew herb for treatment of migraine headache, fever, common cold, and arthritis, and these effects are attributed to leaves and/or flowers mainly due to the presence of sesquiterpene lactones and flavonoids.
