Orthobolic is the athlete’s joint health formula. It “cleans up” joints that have been whittled down by years of stress. No more creaky knees, achy backs, or bum shoulders.
A life spent pushing your body to the absolute extreme comes with incredible gains, but also some pretty nasty injuries too. Whether you’re a competitive bodybuilder or high-level sports athlete, taxing your body relentlessly day in and day out wreaks havoc on your joints and connective tissue. This life of hard training demands a hardcore recovery supplement. One that restores joint health, flexibility, and mobility to the days of your youth.
Palmitoylethanolamide (200mg) limits histamines, inflammatory cytokines, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) by reducing the activation of mast cells. Additional research notes that Palmitoylethanolamide it can bind to COX-2 (just like ibuprofen), which can help mediate pain and inflammation.
Cissus Quadrangularis (350mg) stimulates the metabolism and uptake of calcium by osteoblasts (bone cells) which increases fracture healing. Cissus Quadrangularis has also been shown to reduce healing time, decrease joint discomfort, improve functionality, and increase collagen synthesis in osteoblasts.
Boswellia Serrata (150mg) functions as a lipoxygenase-5 (LOX-5) inhibitor, blocking the conversion of fatty acids into leukotrienes like histamines or prostaglandins. Boswellia contains AKBA (3-O-acetyl-11-keto-boswellic acid) which has been shown to reduce joint discomfort and joint stiffness in as little as 7 days.
Curcumin (150mg) reduces expression of proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-6, TNF-alpha, NF-kappaB, COX-2 and LOX-5, which can destroy joint cartilage. Research shows this compound can decrease swollen joints and tenderness as well as increase anti-inflammatory activity by enhancing free radical scavenging.
UC-II (40mg) aids the body's natural process of removing damaged collagen/tissue and repairing damaged areas. Containing undenatured Type II collagen, UC-II also reduces perceived pain levels and the amount of OTC pain medication used by patients in a clinical study.
BioPerine (10mg) has been shown to increase bioavailability of curcumin by 2000% as well as enhance the absorption of numerous other compounds. BioPerine maximizes the uptake and efficacy of all the other joint support ingredients in Orthobolic for superior joint health and function.
