If you're already taking Advanced Joint Support, you've probably already experienced significant relief from your pain. I know I have. I had three knee surgeries back in 1995 to repair the damage from a basketball injury. A couple years ago, it started to make a loud banging noise when I would walk. And, boy, did it hurt. Then I started taking Advanced Joint Support, the banging stopped and the pain went away. I was really impressed.
I still suffer from some swelling in the knee and a little pain from time to time. So I recently went looking for a way to reduce the swelling and intermittent pain. And a new study showed that the answer was right in front of me.
This study came out of Italy. The researchers followed 50 people for three months. All of them had x-ray-diagnosed osteoarthritis of the knee. And all of them were using standard medical treatment for their pain. The researchers divided them into two groups. One continued the standard treatments (the placebo), while the other continued the treatment and also took a curcumin-based supplement.
This wasn't just any curcumin supplement though. It was a preparation the researchers had optimized for better absorption. And the results were astounding.
After three months, those taking the curcumin had reported a 58% decrease in their overall pain and stiffness. They said their physical functioning improved as well. That was significant. But the researchers didn't stop there. They also used a test to determine the participants' emotional well-being. They wanted to find out if the lower pain made them happier. They found an amazing 300% improvement in the emotional well-being of those taking the curcumin.
What's more, the researchers also tested their blood for the inflammation marker C-reactive protein. They found the curcumin reduced C-reactive protein by 16-fold. That means it can help your heart while reducing the swelling in your joints, as CRP is a major marker for heart disease.
How about side effects? There was only one – the patients taking the curcumin were able to reduce the number of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs by 63%. Many stopped the drugs altogether.

So if you're looking to get rid of joint pain, start by taking Advanced Joint Support and then add Reduloxin if you need additional help. Both of these formulas contain Meriva, a form of curcumin that your body can absorb 29 times more effectively than normal curcumin. That means they can assist in reducing pain and inflammation better than most pain drugs – and without the negative side effects. What's more, they'll help your heart, your brain, and your whole body live pain free and without dangerous inflammation.
When I added the Reduloxin, it reduced the swelling in my knee and, as long as I keep taking it, I don't have any pain. My knee will never be as strong as it was before the injury. But it's great to get rid of the pain.
