Many athletes (especially as we get a bit older) have more and more joint-related issues. I know I certainly do! The Joint Health Protocol works to reduce inflammation, hydrate joint tissue (cartilage), and reduce joint pain. This is meant as an everyday maintenance protocol, if you have a more acute injury consider combining with the Injury Repair Protocol.
- SwissRX Joint Defense: Goes after joint pain and especially cartilage repair
- SwissRX Omega 3: Overall anti-inflammatory and great at reducing joint pain.
- SwissRX Turmeric: Powerful anti-inflammatory.
When to use it: Take the Omega 3 and Turmeric in the morning on an empty stomach. Take one Joint Defense in the morning, afternoon, and before bed. Ideally on an empty stomach.
When it comes to healing from cartilage damage, there's one ingredient that's key: chondroitin sulfate. It's a well-known supplement for joint pain and it works by embedding itself into the cartilage cap and healing your cartilage.
By drawing moisture into the joint tissues, it hydrates them and allows for compression when pressure is put on your joint. It then rehydrates the tissues when pressure is released...
However, in order to get the full benefit of chondroitin sulfate, there's a very important detail that's usually overlooked: chondroitin sulfate cannot be properly absorbed and utilized unless it's cut into tiny microscopic sizes (measured in daltons)
This means most supplements that contain this key ingredient, aren't going to be nearly as effective as they should be... BUT there IS one that has done the science and gone the 'spare no expenses' approach...
SwissRX's formulation is unique because it uses a patented Chondroitin sulfate made from a special technology which cuts it down into super tiny pieces that your body can actually utilize. This makes it one of the most effective chondroitin supplements in the world!
In fact, studies using THIS EXACT PRODUCT show that athletes receiving Chondroitin Sulfate had double the joint health benefits as a placebo. Another study showed that patients with joint discomfort had "significant improvements" in 4 weeks and the benefits lasted for two weeks after treatment was stopped.
Glucosamine sulfate is a naturally occurring, joint-supporting compound. As a precursor to the primary building blocks of joint tissue (glycolipids, glycoproteins, hyaluronate, and proteoglycans) it is an important starting point for cartilage synthesis.
As the major glycosaminoglycan associated with articular cartilage, chondroitin sulfate (CS) is designed to draw water into the joint tissues and hydrate them, allowing for compression when pressure is put on the joint and to rehydrate when the pressure is released. The chondroitin sulfate in Swiss RX Joint Defense is enzymatically processed to provide consistently small, highly absorbed chondroitin molecules.
Bromelain is a protease derived from pineapple stems that helps to maintain normal inflammatory balance by affecting both the kinin and fibrin pathways. Bromelain also increases the absorption of chondroitin sulfate.
If you want to train, race, and live your day to day life without worrying about pain and inflammation flaring up and slowing you down, then you want to learn about SwissRX Turmeric.
After knee surgery, I had a horrendous time recovering. I tried tons of different and expensive therapies, like PRP, Stem Cells, and Red Light therapy, I would get short term results but nothing worked long term.
I was close to giving up hope that I'd ever get back to normal. I couldn't run at all and my knee would throb and keep me up at night after even mild training.
But then I started the SwissRX Soft Tissue Complex (of which SwissRX Turmeric is 1 of the 4 components) and after 4 weeks the world changed. I could ride again and not have pain the next day. I even started running and weight training again and now 12 weeks later, I'm no longer worried about a hard workout pushing me over the edge and pain returning.
But I've taken Turmeric before and it didn't do much for me? So why did SwissRX Turmeric work when others did not?
SwissRX Turmeric uses the whole turmeric plant, not just an extract, and this is shown in a clinical study to reduce systemic inflammation by 88%.
If you've tried other turmeric/curcumin products with mediocre results, you'll be blown away by the potency of this formula. Simply put, it will knock out inflammation and take away related pain and you'll feel like your old self again.
It is also not just for pain, SwissRX Turmeric is the most potent supplement we have found to minimize systemic inflammation and maximize your next-day recovery.
It includes the whole turmeric compound, not just isolated curcumin...
Look, I know first hand this stuff is anti-inflammatory gold...
It's perfect for mild to moderate pain management and is a MUST HAVE for athletes. It's a healthy, safe alternative to chronic NSAID use (ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen) which are terrible for you as they can block recovery and lead to long term damage.
If you're recovering from serious injury or surgery like I am, you'll want to check out our soft tissue complex for a full spectrum recovery protocol, which includes SwissRX Turmeric.
For daily maintenance and management of inflammation post-workout, then you can use SwissRX Turmeric by itself with great results.
Ok, I'll admit that I really don't like eating fish. The only thing worse for me is taking a fish oil supplement and getting fishy burps or after taste. SwissRX is with me on this and has figured out how to have absolutely zero fishiness in their Omega 3s. I guarantee you'll never have a fishy taste with this Omega3!
What makes their Omega3 special (other than miraculously eliminating the fishiness) is what they call...
Swiss RX only uses sardines, mackerel, and anchovies (fish lowest on the food chain) in their formula, which are lowest in heavy metals. They also source their fish from the rural coast of Chile, which is one of the purest oceanic environments in the world.
Catch to capsule within three to six months means their Omega3 supplement is the freshest on the market (also why there is no fishy taste)
When Omega 3 is extracted from the fish it needs to be taken apart and put into supplement form. To do this, companies breakdown the Omega3 and then concentrate the EPA and DPA into a specific ratio. This is usually where most companies stop and put it into a capsule form. However, despite the great expense and effort, SwissRX takes the last step in the process and rebuilds each EPA and DPA fatty acid with its original Triglyceride backbone before putting it into the capsule. This makes their Omega3 bioidentical to the Omega3 found originally in the fish, which means it's 70% more absorbable!
The Three P process SwissRX goes through, especially the last step, is far beyond what any other Omega-3 supplements are willing to spend to make their product an. It's another great example of SwissRXs "spare-no-expense" approach that results in the highest quality product for you.
Omega-3 fatty acids counteract inflammation and reduce joint pain and tenderness. They also help to keep the lining of your arteries smooth and clear, which allows for the maximum amount of oxygen-rich blood to reach your working muscles (and your brain!)
One study showed that fish oil might work to reduce both whole-body and myocardial oxygen demand during exercise, without a decrease in performance. In this case, researchers evaluated 16 cyclists randomly assigned to receive 8 grams of fish oil per day or olive oil placebo.
We set out to find a supplement company we could trust for the world's top endurance athletes: a company that has the same obsession with quality and performance as our athletes do. Our quest led us to SwissRX. SwissRX takes a "spare-no-expense" approach to procuring the highest quality Pharmaceutical Grade Ingredients. Only 3% of supplement companies go through the rigorous testing required for pharmaceutical grade labeling, SwissRX happens to be one of them. But they don't stop there; whenever possible, they use the exact ingredients used in medical studies, the same ones that many other companies point to in research, but don't use due to their price. We love SwissRX because our athletes can rest assured knowing that they are getting the identical ingredients that were proven to be effective in previous studies.
Simply stated, SwissRX products work better because they contain better ingredients.
We know SwissRX is expensive, but you get what you pay for - especially when it comes to supplements. Other brands may be cheaper, but so are the quality of their ingredients. If you're anything like me, you'd rather pay a premium and KNOW you're getting the highest quality and most effective product possible.
We are 100% confident that SwissRX is the best supplement in the world, which is why we guarantee first time orders up to $100. If, for any reason at all, you're not THRILLED with your results after using this product for a minimum of three weeks, contact us within 60 days of your purchase and we will issue a no-hassle MONEY BACK refund in the form of Feed Credit for the purchase price of your product, up to a maximum value of $100.
