Joint Supplements now available of The Fenchurch Chiropractic Clinic
Nearly everybody can benefit from taking Joint Supplements. They help prevent the cartilage in your joints including your spinal discs from wearing down. This is known as osteoarthritis or degenerative joint/disc disease. The Fenchurch Chiropractic Clinic also recommends B Complex, especially B12, which is extrememly important for nervous system function, allowing messages to flow at their optimum through our nerves. At the clinic, we always recommend joint supplements, (except for pregnant women), there is a variety of supplements available at the clinic including:
Providing 700mg of Omega 3’s per capsule
These capsules contain a concentrated fish oil which provides a full 700mg of Omega 3’s per capsule (many 1000mg fish oil products contain just 350mg of Omega 3’s). This means that this product is one of the strongest available in the UK and is therefore widely recommended by practitioners. The fish oil undergoes a sophisticated purification process that ensures it is largely odour free, with levels of contaminants well below the strict EU maximum limits. The oil is then protected from oxidation while it is in the capsules by the inclusion of natural vitamin E. The most beneficial ingredients in fish oil are the two Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Research has shown that Omegas 3’s play a vitally important part in maintaining our health and wellbeing.
Flax Seed Oil 1000mg
A rich source of Omega 3’s Flax Seed Oil is an excellent alternative to fish oils as the oil is 50% by weight Alpha-Linolenic Acid and therefore contains almost twice as much Omega 3 per gram of weight than standard strength fish oils. Alpha-Linolenic Acid is converted by the body into the Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA according to its need. Alpha-Linolenic Acid is required in large amounts by the body but modern day diets are often low in this essential nutrient. Lamberts® Flax Seed Oil is cold pressed to ensure that the nutritive qualities are retained and to protect the ALA from oxidation we use opaque capsule shells and add vitamin E as an antioxidant. Tests on the degree of saturation (a measure of freshness) show that the precious ALA is stable during the shelf life of the product. Daily intake 1 to 3 capsules
Glucosamine with Chondroitin, MSM & Quercetin plus Ginger & Rose Hip Extracts
This is a high strength glucosamine and chondroitin formula that also provides potent levels of other nutrients. Each ingredient has been selected based on their different, but complimentary, functions and are presented at levels that are nutritionally relevant. Three tablets provide the full 1500mg of glucosamine sulphate, the level used in many studies, as well as 300mg of chondroitin sulphate (see note below) and 150mg of MSM per daily dose. The powerful bioflavonoid quercetin has been included at a potent 60mg, plus 1200mg of ginger (as a concentrated extract), as well as 400mg of rose hip. Few, if any, joint formulas provide these potencies in a single formula. Chondroitin mislabelling: Many companies use a preparation that is just 20% chondroitin but their label may declare this as if it is 100% chondroitin. Therefore a supplement declared as ‘400mg chondroitin sulphate’ is often just 80mg of chondroitin sulphate. Of course this Lamberts® supplement uses 330mg of a 90% chondroitin preparation (per 3 tablets) to provide the 300mg of pure chondroitin sulphate declared on the label.
Vitamin B-50 Complex
A balanced formula of the B vitamins
Lamberts® one-a-day Vitamin B-50 Complex is a high potency, comprehensive formula providing all the important B vitamins that came out top in an independent analysis. It is our most popular B Complex, with all the B’s presented at much higher levels than you will find in typical supermarket products. These higher levels are frequently recommended by nutritionists. Several of the B vitamins are known to contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system and immune system, and also psychological function. Others are recognised as contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue as well as the maintenance of normal skin.
