Show your joints some Love – for a life-long relationship

By Genuine Health

Think of your joints as door hinges. You take care to not slam them (too often, anyway) but you don’t tend to pay attention to actively caring for them until they start to make some noise.

Unfortunately the “squeaky wheel gets the grease” approach is one many take in regards to joint health, waiting until pain sets in to pay attention. Pain is the tip of the iceberg with joint health: pain signals underlying joint problems, including inflammation and damaged joint structure.

It pays to be aware of factors that can contribute to joint health issues before pain sets in. For instance, if you are very active, you are subjecting your joints to extra impact that takes a toll over time. Family health history can also reveal genetic determinants of vulnerability to inflammatory joint conditions. Just as any health professional would not tell you to wait until cardiovascular disease sets in to eat well – you need to be proactive about maintaining healthy joints.

There are a variety of ways to nourish and care for the structural components of joints. Diet and exercise are, as in all matters of health, hugely important factors. A wide variety of activities support balanced muscle tone that stabilizes joints for healthy movement patterns. Minimizing foods that fuel inflammation in the body – those that are refined, processed and high in sugar and unhealthy fats, and staying well hydrated are important for supporting joints and allover health.

Completing this trifecta of protective lifestyle factors is preventative supplementation – a targeted way to keep joints happy and healthy that is possible with BiovaFlex® natural eggshell membrane. The most potent eggshell membrane available, BiovaFlex® is the central ingredient in Genuine Health pain relief products – providing the joints with the materials they need to maintain adequate lubrication and structural integrity to ward off damage from wear & tear and inflammation. Just as whole foods in the diet are important, so are whole-food supplements – and BiovaFlex® exhibits an array of naturally occurring ingredients that provide structural components with nutritional support,  essentially “feeding” joint tissues with targeted naturally-occurring compounds, including:

Transforming growth factor

  • A protein that plays a critical role in tissue repair, cellular differentiation, and immune function


  • Fibrous protein critical to cartilage strength & elasticity


  • Protein that provides tissue with elastic tension and ability to resume its shape after stretching

Desmosine & Isodesmonsine

  • Two little known amino acids responsible for elastin’s elastic or rubbery properties

Glycoaminoglycans (GAGs)

  • Vital polysaccharides that serve as structural components of connective tissue, interstitial fluids and skeletal structures

If you play hard, are prone to inflammation, have been injured or have any arthritis in your family health history – supplementing  preventatively with FAST joint care+ could go a long way in keeping joints healthy and pain free. Pain relief products from Genuine Health are also convenient, and can be taken any time of day, with or without food, and for extended periods of time as BiovaFlex® is extremely safe – with no side effects.

Genuine Health pain relief products also include FAST arthritis pain relief+ for advanced joint pain or treating symptoms of osteoarthritis and FAST pain relief+, for general acute, or chronic pain including headache, and muscular pain. Preventative supplementation is now possible with revolutionary BiovaFlex® that gives you and your joints the protection – and nourishment – for a loving, healthy, life-long relationship.
