Yoga Reduces the causes of Arthritis

Researchers have discovered a natural way to treat inflammation, which is the cause of many conditions, such as age-related macular degeneration, heart disease and arthritis. When researchers monitored the health of a group of professional women, they found that regular yoga practice could lower the levels of compounds in the blood (cytokines) that lead to inflammation.

Women who practiced yoga for at least two years had lower levels of compounds that cause inflammation in the blood. Levels, however, did not increase (as expected) when they underwent stressful situations. Although yoga seems to work, researchers at Ohio State University are not sure if this is due specifically to breathing, movement or posture.

103 million people across Europe suffer from rheumatoid arthritis condition. To reduce the intake of chemical anti-inflammatory drugs and to treat inflammation and pain, there are effective herbal ingredients that are renowned for their properties.

The first experiments in 1958 in Germany, showed that the rapeseed plant has strong anti-inflammatory properties: “Cortisone-like and without side effects”. The reason for the harpagophyte (Harpagophytum procumbens) and its two components, arpagoxith and β-sitosterol have anti-inflammatory properties.

Studies have shown over time that the use of the whole plant is more effective. It grows in the southern tropical zone of Africa, in conditions of great drought (for A. Vogel,. Its roots are collected at the end of the rainy season. Because the rapeseed plant also has strong detoxifying properties (treats inflammation throughout the body), preventive continuous its use in chronic diseases.

The therapeutic reputation of the rapeseed plant in cases of arthritis and myalgia has spread widely. In an open clinical study conducted in Switzerland by A. Vogel, patients with chronic arthropathy were monotherapy with Atrosan (Rheuma-Tabletten) for 8 weeks. At the end of the study 30% of patients were able to completely stop the synthetic anti-inflammatory drugs they were taking before the study. and 52% reduced the use of other analgesics to minimal and acute pain only.

The iridoid glycosides (grasshoppers, grasshoppers, pre-cobwebs) contained in the grape plant are responsible for its anti-inflammatory properties. More specifically, harpoons hydrolyze and convert to the potent anti-inflammatory arpagogenin and arpagide.
