- Scientists have made a number of recent research advancements in the role of diet and nutrition for treatment of inflamed joints, commonly known as arthritis Today, we understand the connections among arthritis, diet, healthy body weight, immune function, and inflammation. Diets that are lower in fat, especially saturated fats, have been shown to put less “wear and tear” on the joints.
Maintaining a healthy body weight is an important factor in overall health and in fighting arthritis. Diets with a balance of all essential nutrients are important to maintain joint health. In particular, calcium and vitamin D are vital components of any nutrition plan, especially for people with joint problems. Some studies have shown that omega-3 and omega-6 fats are beneficial in the treatment of some forms of inflammatory arthritis (http://jointhealth.org/aboutarthritis-treatments-diet.cfm?locale=en-CA ).
The Nutrient Shake contains a balance of all essential nutrients and healthy fats (omega-3s and omega-6s) to support joint health, while promoting weight loss. Each serving contains 50% of calcium and 40% of vitamin D, the true joint vitamin.
