Natural Treatment for OA Proven to Reduce Pain

At last! A natural treatment for OA that has been properly tested with good science. It was published in Rheumatology which is the British Society of Rheumatology’s official journal. Best of all, the research shows it actually works!

It is a gel  and appears to reduce pain and improve mobility. I have always preferred gels and creams to pills because they go direct into the problem area rather than taking a roundabout route! This means I was particularly excited about this article in the Daily Mail about this amazing new natural treatment for OA.

In a nutshell it is a water based gel which contains phospholipids. To understand a bit why phospholipidsare important you need to know what an important role they play in body structure.

Cell membranes are made of phospholipids. The ‘heads’ on the outer layer are the phosphate end which is polar and the ‘tail’ inside are the fatty acid chains.

Phospholipids are lipids that in their simplest form are made up of of glycerol bonded to two fatty acids and a phosphate group. The resulting compound called phosphatidic acid contains a region (the fatty acid bit) that is fat-soluble along with a region (the charged phosphate group) that is water-soluble.

Don’t worry if you didn’t follow that  the important thing is this means that both fat soluble things and water soluble molecules can pass through them. This is very important and is why cell membranes are made of phospholipids. Vitamins and minerals are either fat or water soluble so the structure of the cell membrane must allow both types to pass through.

Why Are Phospholipids an Important Natural Treatment for OA ?

Although cell membranes are the most important and common role for phospholipids they can join up with another molecule to form something called phosphatidylcholine and this has been shown to have really good anti inflammatory effects. Other research shows it helps with Crohns disease (an inflammatory bowel disease)and has a protective effect for Hepatitis A, B, and C.

This anti-inflammatory effect is why it will help with the symptoms of OA. When you have OA the muscles, tendons and ligaments become inflamed so you get pain from them. In fact in the early stages I believe they are the ONLY painful bit as the cartilage, though thin, is not so thin that the bone is rubbing on the bone. This only happens in severe cases.

Will Flexiseq Work for Me?

In many cases yes it probably will. Most of us have inflammation when we have OA so it will reduce that and so reduce your pain. However it will not cure you so you have to be prepared to use it as an ongoing product as part of your complete management program.
