What Is It?
Joint Mediator (Inflammation Balance Formula) is designed to support a healthy balance of immune mediator activity, part of the body’s natural inflammatory response, to promote healthy joint function and comfort.*
Uses For Joint Mediator
Joint Health: Joint Mediatoris uniquely formulated to maintain the body’s natural mechanisms for upregulation and downregulation of immune mediators. Cytokines and prostaglandins are chemical messengers that influence cellular activities in a variety of tissues. Maintaining healthy cytokine and prostaglandin function helps to lessen occasional pain and to sustain healthy joint mobility and comfort. In a 4-week trial organized by Dr. Yanuck, three fourths of volunteers that were supplemented with Joint Optimizer experienced positive support, including the ability to resume physical activity. Dr. Yanuck credits this with the potential of the formula to help lessen the activity of immune mediators without suppressing them completely, which would create an undesirable reaction by the immune system on musculoskeletal tissues.*
The body’s natural inflammatory response is influenced by many factors, only some of which may be affected by the ingredients in this formula.
