For persistent joint discomfort, you need more than just a quick fix. You need to help maintain a healthy inflammatory response in your body, to get to the underlying cause of joint discomfort. I developed my Joint Advantage Gold® + Turmeric formula to do just that.
No more waiting weeks or months for soothing relief. AprèsFlex®, the superstar of my formula, is clinically shown to lower markers of an inflammatory response while reducing joint discomfort and stiffness—quickly.1
In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, 59 individuals with stiff, achy joints took 100 mg of AprèsFlex or a placebo daily for 30 days. Three tests were used to measure discomfort, stiffness, and physical function—and in all 3, AprèsFlex came out on top.2
In other research, AprèsFlex was shown to reduce the level of 5 of the body’s top inflammatory markers. What’s more, AprèsFlex was more effective than the leading boswellia extract at reducing the 5-LOX enzyme that contributes to the body's inflammatory response. You get the full 100 mg research dose in Joint Advantage Gold® 5X + Turmeric.
For additional support, I’ve included the full 1,000 mg research dose of Meriva®, a highly bioavailable form of turmeric for joint relief. Clinically studied Meriva gets into your system fast, reducing inflammatory markers for lasting relief.
A study referenced in the Alternative Medicine Review found that the curcumin in Meriva is 45 times more bioavailable than ordinary curcumin! In fact, in 2 clinical studies, Meriva has been shown to decrease discomfort and stiffness by over 50% and significantly decrease inflammatory markers. One of the most exciting outcomes of the research on Meriva has to do with the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein (CRP).
Participants whose CRP levels were most elevated experienced a significant improvement in their CRP scores after 2 months, with a greater improvement at 3 months. Even better—these participants were tested again at 8 months and the results held.3, 4
