Understanding the cycle of pain, inflammation and more pain
When we injure ourselves or suffer inflammation from exercise or activity or suffer inflammation for another reason, like arthritis, the immune system makes a variety of chemicals that transmit pain signals to the brain. These chemicals include the prostaglandins, which are the immune system’s hormones, which are linked to numerous inflammatory diseases, including all of the arthritic conditions. Medical studies find high concentrations of prostoglandins in painful joints, suggesting that it contributes to pain as well as inflammation. Prostaglandins are notorious agents of pain. Inflammation is intimately tied to free radicals that inflammatory cells produce. There is the need for anti-oxidant therapy to combat the potentially harmful effects for excess free radicals. Upon injury or chronic inflammation, the Cox-2 enzyme is released. This enzyme targets the omega-6 fatty acids in our tissues and produces prostaglandins.
Currently, there are drugs on the market such as Celebrex and Vioxx that are Cox-2 enzyme inhibitors that block the formation of prostaglandins, which reduces pain. Unfortunately, these drugs do little to actually stop the inflammation and promote healing of the injured tissues. On the other hand, the ingredients in Joint Remedy Plus block the formation of prostaglandins and and help facilitate healing by guiding the inflammatory process, stopping it at the appropriate time, and facilitating the healing process.
