CHF #1A and CHF 1B – Arth.
CHF 1A Arth. and CHF1B Arth. are two of our formulas that may help arthritis symptoms. These formulas are a powerful anti-inflammatory. The repair of damaged tissue by regenerating cells is very important. These formulas may help with the painful symptoms, but also may help to disperse damaged tissue, a type of detoxification process. Using either of these formulas may also help improve joint flexibility.
We have added Glucosamine and Chondroitin to our formula CHF1B Arth.. Glucosamine and Chondroitin are two molecules that make up the type of cartilage found within joints. Inside your joints, cartilage undergoes a constant process of breakdown and repair. However, to be properly repaired, the building blocks of cartilage must be present and available. The theory be- hind using the Glucosamine and Chondroitin in joint supplements is that more of the cartilage building blocks will be available for cartilage repair.
Some of the important herbs in CHF1A and CHF1B are Yucca, Aloe Vera, Horsetail and White Willow Bark.
Zuni, Navajo and other, Indian tribes of the Southwest use Yucca for a variety of health pur- poses. Yucca contains the natural steroid saponin, which has been known to be an anti- inflammatory. Yucca may help to block the release of toxins that interfere with the normal forma- tion of cartilage
It’s a wonder plant with health benefits so myriad and astounding that hardly any part of humanbody remains that is not influenced by its healing touch. Aloe Vera is a natural fighter against all sorts of infection, an efficient anti-oxidant that may help in all digestion related problems, arthri- tis, stress, diabetes, to being an enhancer of beauty. Aloe has been proved by research to be a plant of amazing medicinal properties. The medicinal value of the plant has been recognized for centuries for its remarkable properties.
The anti-inflammatory properties of the extract from Horsetail stems, is an effective remedy for Juvenile Arthritis. Horsetail is also known by some more names such as Bottle brush and cola de caballo. Galen, an ancient Roman physician, wrote that horsetail aided nosebleeds, arthritis, tu- berculosis, bleeding ulcers, ligaments and severed tendons. Physicians in ancient China used horsetail for arthritis, hemorrhoids, dysentery and wounds. Early North Americans and immi- grants made tea from horsetail for its diuretic qualities and for coughing.
White Willow Bark
It is used as an anti-inflammatory by many different Native American tribes. White Willow Bark is used like aspirin, treating infections, arthritis and pain caused by inflammation. Recent studies have shown that standardized doses of White Willow Bark may reduce pain about the same as a daily dose of Vioxx (prescription arthritis drug).
