August 21 2017 Puzzle Piece - Inflammation, the cause of much pain and underlies many conditions

Inflammation, the cause of much pain and underlies many conditions

August 21, 2017 Puzzle Piece
August is Pain & Inflammation Month
For the month of August, Dr Brimhall, Doug Grant and OHS has grouped five choice products. The ingredients help relieve and remove the underlying causes of pain and inflammation.
Optimal Acute™
The first product ever created sparked from the founder and formulator’s need to find relief from acute back pain. Not only did NSAIDS not offer adequate relief, they also came with a mountain of health risks. In order to solve these problems Optimal Acute™ was born. But the journey didn’t stop there. Extensive research and testing went into the formulation, until the right combination of ingredients proved to provide quick, lasting pain relief by reducing inflammation. That same research has proven that it works faster than NSAIDS.
Acute is the safe replacement for NSAIDS. Not only does it lack the negative side effects commonly associated with them, like liver and kidney damage, you will heal faster. Research and testing has shown these ingredients to be extremely effective in the healing of gout and killing harmful bacteria and viruses while letting the good bacteria live, keeping you healthy.

Protease is where the magic happens in this formula. Its main function is to digest proteins. When

injury occurs, proteins break off from the injury site and float around. Protease increases blood flow and digests protein debris, which in turn reduces inflammation and pain.

Optimal Chronic™
This formula promotes real healing for those who suffer from chronic pain. Its lays down the nutrient foundation for healing and rebuilding tendon and joint tissue.
Major research has zeroed in on three key nutrients: glucosamine, chondroitin, and yucca. Glucosamine plays a major role in retaining joint health. Research has shown it’s capable of slowing degradation and the onset of osteoarthritis. Chondroitin is naturally found in cartilage around joints. Taking it as a supplement has shown to slow cartilage breakdown. Yucca is the most researched and proven herb for chronic joint pain, its largest benefit being its ability to ease arthritis pain, swelling, and stiffness.
All three ingredients, while beneficial, are hard to digest. Couple that with a body that’s sick or injured and it becomes even harder. This may be the leading reason why there’s conflicting information on the efficacy of these ingredients. That aside, the digestion hurdle only brings more light to how beneficial and advantageous our Opti-Blend predigestion process is. This patented plant enzyme predigestion process prepares the ingredients, making them ready for absorption and utilization as soon as they enter your system.
Optimal Joint Pak
Designed to be easy-to-use for both anti-inflammatory properties and rebuilding joint tissue, the Optimal Joint Pak pairs Optimal Acute™ and Optimal Chronic™ in convenient packets. You can keep them handy if you go on a hike, work extra hard on manual labor, power through a tough workout, and so on. Together, these formulas help reduce inflammation and repair tissue and disc degeneration. You can use them on a daily basis, along with take an extra packet when the need arises. The ingredients have been proven to be safer than NSAIDS and synthetic anti-inflammatories.
Optimal™ Muscle Rx
This is our No.1 selling formula when it comes to building and sustaining lean muscle. It’s not just for weightlifters. It is used by professional athletes, weightlifters, patients needing to repair muscle after injuries, and anyone in between working to achieve optimal health. It truly serves the dual purpose of regaining and building muscle.
With over 25 years of successful use, Muscle Rx’s formula is patented and contains five patented ingredients. It capitalizes on glutamine, the most abundant amino acid in the body, and the one used most to combat physical and mental stress. It helps get rid of acid buildup. This formula uses a patented form of glutamine called MGG, and it is the purest form available. It is the only stabilized form available and takes only minutes to start working.
The other patented ingredients are creatine (bound to magnesium), magnesium, BCAA, and chromium. This potent, powerful combination allows us to make the claim that our ingredients stop sarcopenia, the disease that causes age-related muscle loss. You can keep your muscle strength when pairing this formula with regular exercise.

Optimal™ Complete Nutrition Plus
This formula is the purest, cleanest blend of macronutrients on the market by far. It is hypoallergenic, free of gluten, dairy, and soy, and contains no GMOs. The eight most common allergens are milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans. This formula has made a point to NOT include any of those while still containing everything doctors recommend to ingest on a daily basis. It is also high protein and rich in antioxidants (over 15,000 ORAC units). It is complete nutrition at the highest level.

It may seem strange to pair a nutritional protein powder with our pain and inflammation promotion but this was no random choice. Protein plays a major role in pain and inflammation by rebuilding tissue.

One of our goals with Dr Brimhall’s “Six Steps to Wellness” and at OHS is to treat the cause, not just the symptoms. Pain and inflammation are symptomatic expressions of underlying causes. The cause isn’t just from injury or a disease process; it also comes from muscle loss, be it from aging or leading a sedentary lifestyle. While the symptoms do need to be addressed to make way for healing long term, it only happens if you strengthen the muscles. Regaining and strengthening muscle will make it easier for your body to keep bones healthy and in alignment, while preserving your range of motion.

Optimal™ Complete Nutrition Plus combines nine vegetarian protein sources in specific amounts. This ensures the amino acid profile your muscles need for recovery and strength are met.

There is a lot of information in this article and decades of research and clinical experience.  Please put these products to the test and reap the benefits.  No other products can compare.
