AIM Frame Essentials®
Details - NPN80006447
AIM Frame Essentials® is the ultimate health product to help relieve osteoarthritic pain.
The human skeleton, comprised of every bone in your body, provides strength, stability, and a frame for your muscles to work with to allow physical movement. Joints, made up of bones, are in constant motion. 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 aging, diet, lifestyle, or the onset of arthritis. The resulting pain can severely affect the quality of your life. AIM Frame Essentials® can help to relieve pain and build and repair damaged or eroded cartilage.
Many people who suffer with joint pain from arthritis—or other causes—take medications that provide only symptomatic relief. According to the Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve, and Voltaren, appear to suppress the symptoms, but hinder cartilage repair and accelerating the progression of osteoarthritis. Recent reports show evidence that taking some prescription
NSAIDS may cause heart attack or stroke. Drugs are synthetic and designed to mask disease rather than promote healing. The side effects of drugs can negatively affect an existing condition.
Medicinal Ingredients: (per capsule)
Glucosamine Sulfate 216 mg
Glucosamine Hydrochloride 216 mg
Glucosamine, an amino sugar, is a component of carbohydrates that are 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. Studies show supplemental glucosamine has benefited those with asthma, bursitis, candida, food allergies,
respiratory allergies, osteoporosis, tendonitis, vaginitis, various skin disorders, and arthritis.
Both glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine hydrochloride are derived from an initial source of shrimp shell, which undergoes a multi-step extraction process to produce the final forms of glucosamine. No allergies have been reported. Although most studies have used glucosamine sulfate, many health care practitioners have clinical experience that glucosamine hydrochloride works just as well. Frame Essentials contains a 50:50 ratio of these two
Glucosamine sulfate has been the subject of more than 300 scientific investigations and more than twenty double-blind studies with virtually no side effects. Its benefits for osteoarthritis are impressive. For relieving pain and inflammation, doubleblind studies have shown that glucosamine sulfate produces better results than nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. All studies indicate that the longer glucosamine sulfate is used, the greater the
benefits; therefore, glucosamine is suitable for long-term use.
Boswellia Resin 100 mg
(standardized to 65% boswellic acid)
The boswellia serrata tree, which is found in India and the Middle East, produces a resin with therapeutic value known as frankincense. 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 centred on boswellia’s triterpenoids, especially the boswellic acids, which improve blood supply to the joints and maintain the integrity of blood vessels.
Boswellic acids have been know to reduce joint swelling, maintain blood supply to inflamed joints, maintain mobility, and reduce pain due to stiffness in the joints without side effects.
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. Recent research also indicates that the major constituents of boswellia have anticarcinogenic, anti-tumour, and anti-hyperlipidemic (reduces high fat content in the blood) activities.
MSM (Methyl-sulfonyl-methane) 98 mg
MSM is a biologically active form of the mineral sulfur. Sulfur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body and is found in every cell. Sulfur plays a particularly important role in tissue structure. As a form of sulfur, MSM contributes to healthy joints.
It also 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.
Considered to be the father of MSM, Dr. Stanley W. Jacob (Oregon Health Sciences University) devoted over twenty years of his life to the study of this supplement. Right from the start of his research, he took MSM daily and noted, “Since I’ve been taking the MSM, I’ve not had a single cold or the flu. I can’t say with certainty it is the MSM that prevented my cold or the flu, but it is a fascinating observation.” Dr. Jacob’s observation attests
to the idea that natural health products work on many levels in the human body. 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.
Helps to relieve osteoarthritic pain.
Adults: 2 capsules twice daily. For best results, use for a minimum of 2 months. Take with food. Avoid taking at bedtime.
Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you have diabetes or if symptoms worsen. Do not use if you have shellfish allergies or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Q & A
Is glucosamine actually absorbed?
Yes, in one study on glucosamine sulfate (pill form), ninety percent of the glucosamine was absorbed.
How does glucosamine compare to products such as Tylenol® and ibuprofen?
There is no doubt that such products provide rapid pain relief. However, studies have shown that after four weeks of use, glucosamine is as effective or more effective than these products in providing relief from joint problems with no significant side effects.
