Are you a serious athlete? Are you injured and unable to train? Time to use Joint Rehab.
What Is Joint Rehab and What Does it Do?
Joint Rehab's active ingredient is called Kre-Celazine - a mixture of alkali-buffered creatine monohydrate and cetylated fatty acids in a dry capsule.
In a research study, Kre-Celazine human test subjects indicated mild to substantial pain relief based on where their pain was the most severe. It's been reported that creatine monohydrate and cetylated fatty acids act differently once inside the cell, meaning it's likely that pain and inflammation is relieved through more than one means.
What Causes Inflammation?
Let's take a moment and look at what inflammation is and what causes it.
This is visible as swelling, tenderness, tissue discoloration etc. at the injury site. This is considered a self limiting response – this response is limited to the injured area where damage has occurred. This kind of inflammation is tied into normal bodily repair which is essential to normal functioning.
But there are occasions where the immune system misinterprets a tissue (joint/ligament/organ/etc.) as an “injury”, the repair processes that occurred when you hit your thumb will now turn against healthy tissues. This is called non-self-limiting attacks, such as: arthritis or fibromyalgia, to name a couple. These can result in chronic pain and will eventually damage the tissue involved.
How Does Joint Rehab Work?
In research journals, it's been demonstrated that both creatine monohydrate and cetylated fatty acids have potent anti-inflammatory properties.
As an example, in test animals, it has been demonstrated that cetylated fatty acids are able to limit inflammation in joints and ligaments. In humans, inflammation was reduced in the knee/ligament areas. However how this works in humans is not known. Current theories are that they act as a biological “dampener” where the pro-inflammatory molecules are removed, an inhibitor of pro-inflammatory molecules by preventing access to cell membrane sites that are used by the inflammatory molecules.
Supplementing with creatine has been demonstrated to affect both cell permeability and cell surface reactivity. When creatine, or the phosphorylated creatine version, build up inside the cell, they help limit inflammation by preventing one or more pro-inflammatory molecules from connecting with their receptor sites. Research has shown that, increased creatine or phosphorylated creatine concentrations caused modification of cell surface adhesion and permeability.
