AIM Frame Essentials can help to maintain proper joint health.
T he human skeleton provides strength, stability, and a frame to support physical movement. The ends of your bones are covered in cartilage – smooth, tough, protective tissue that acts as a shock absorber between individual bones and reduces friction. This cartilage can become inflamed or begin to deteriorate as the result of many possible factors: an injury, an inherited defect in the protein that forms cartilage, the wear and tear of ageing, diet, lifestyle, or the onset of arthritis. The resulting pain can severely affect the quality of your life.
AIM Frame Essentials benefits can be attributed to four effective ingredients: glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, boswellia extract, and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). AIM Frame Essentials is the perfect choice for those with osteoarthritis, sports injuries, or tendonitis, as well as muscular aches. Give your skeleton the powerful support of AIM Frame Essentials – the ultimate health product to help maintain joint health.
Glucosamine, an amino sugar, is a component of carbohydrates that is incorporated into the structure of body tissue rather than being used as a source of energy. Glucosamine is important in the formation of cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluid, and it is involved in the formation of skin, eyes, bones, and heart valves.
Both glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine hydrochloride are derived from an initial source of shrimp shell, which undergoes a multistep extraction process to produce the final forms of glucosamine. Although most studies have used glucosamine sulfate, many health care practitioners have seen first-hand that glucosamine hydrochloride works just as well. AIM Frame Essentials contains a 1:1 ratio of these two forms of glucosamine.
Glucosamine has been the subject of more than 300 scientific investigations and more than twenty double-blind studies.
Its benefits for osteoarthritis are impressive. For relieving inflammation, double-blind studies have shown that glucosamine sulfate produces better results than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. All studies indicate that the longer glucosamine is used, the greater the benefits; therefore, glucosamine is suitable for long-term use.
In addition, studies show that supplemental glucosamine has benefited those with asthma, bursitis, Candida, food allergies, respiratory allergies, osteoporosis, tendonitis, vaginitis, various skin disorders, and arthritis.
The boswellia serrata tree, which is found in India and the Middle East, produces frankincense extract with longknown therapeutic value. Boswellia serrata has been used for centuries in Indian Ayurvedic medicine to maintain healthy joints. This is still one of its main uses.
Research has centered on boswellia’s triterpenoids, especially the boswellic acids, which improve blood flow to the joints and maintain the integrity of blood vessels. Boswellic acids have been known to reduce joint swelling, maintain mobility, and reduce stiffness in the joints.
A study of thirty patients with osteoarthritis of the knee showed that those receiving boswellia reported decreased knee pain and swelling, increased knee flexion, and increased walking distance. Another study involving eighty-one people with rheumatoid arthritis found significant reduction in swelling and pain over the course of three months.
Boswellia with anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, and analgesic properties has been shown to benefit patients with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, bursitis, Crohn’s disease, tendonitis, and ulcerative colitis.
MSM is a biologically-active form of the mineral sulphur. Sulphur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body and is found in every cell. Sulphur plays a particularly important role in tissue structure. As a form of sulphur, MSM contributes to healthy joints and adds to the benefits of glucosamine. MSM
is naturally present in the body and in protein foods such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, cheese, nuts, and legumes.
Research has shown that individuals with arthritis are deficient in MSM, and supplementing with MSM can reduce inflammation and repair joints and tissue.
In addition to joint and tissue repair, MSM may benefit in other areas. Over 12,000 patients with the following conditions have responded positively to oral MSM: allergies, arthritis (rheumatoid), acne, cancer (breast, colon), constipation, burns (thermal), brittle or soft nails, diabetes, lupus, and muscle soreness and pain.
Many people who suffer from joint pain from arthritis – or other causes – take medications that provide only symptomatic relief. According to the Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve™, and Voltaren™ appear to suppress the symptoms but hinder cartilage repair and accelerate the progression of osteoarthritis.
Recent reports show evidence that taking some prescription NSAIDS may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
