Celadrin – Celadrin consists of fatty acids that have been altered through a process called esterifying. Ester is the result of combining acid and alcohol with the exclusion of water (that is simplified explanation). Fatty acids are taken from beef tallow, oil that results when the beef is boiled. These fatty acids are then mixed with alcohol, esterified and combined with other proprietary ingredients to create the Celadrin. The entire process of esterifying the fatty acids is completed at more than 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and then screened for safety utilizing the Ames test and Scientific Acute Toxicity. The full process is patented and labeled proprietary.
The result from using Celadrin includes increase of the fluids that cushion and lubricate your joints. Through numerous research studies, the use of Celadrin® shows a reduction in inflammation, increase in joint health and improved mobility.
Menthol – Used topically for arthritic pain, itching and sore muscles.
Methyl Salicylate – This product is used to treat minor aches and pains of the muscles/joints (e.g., arthritis, sprains). Menthol and methyl salicylate are known as counterirritants. They work by causing the skin to feel cool and then warm. These feelings on the skin distract you from feeling the aches/pains deeper in your muscles, joints, and tendons.
Emu Oil – Manufacturers extract emu oil from the fat of the large bird Dromaius novaehollandiae, known as the emu. The oil’s pain-relieving and healing properties come from anti-inflammatory compounds. These compounds may be useful in soothing painful swelling associated with arthritis as well as pain from burns and wounds. The American Emu Association also claims that emu oil helps other pain-relief ingredients penetrate more deeply.
Benzyl Alcohol – Benzyl alcohol lotion is used to treat small insects that attach themselves to the skin. Benzyl alcohol is in a class of medications called pediculicides.
Butylparaben – A chemical compound that is used as an antifungal preservative.
Carbomer – A carbomer is any of a series of polymers of acrylic acid used as thickening agents and emulsion stabilizers.
Ethylparaben – Ethylparaben is an ethyl ester of hydroxybenzoic acid. Hydroxybenzoic acid compounds are more commonly known as parabens, which are used as preservatives to inhibit fungal growth.
Glyceryl Stearate – Used in skin care products for its emollient properties. It slows down the evaporation of water and humidifies the skin. It is also used to stabilize the ingredients in the product. It also reduces the greasiness of the product.
Isobutylparaben – Isobutylparaben is a less frequently used paraben and preservative, but is most often used to extend shelf life.
Lecithin – Lecithin is often put in skin creams to help the skin retain moisture. It is frequently used as an emulsifier.
Methylparaben – Methylparaben is an anti-irritant agent and water-soluble anti-microbial. It is an anti-fungal and it functions as a preservative as well as a bacteriostatic agent. Methylparaben is extracted from the benzoic acid that is derived from benzoin tree gum. It is considered both to be a phenol as well as an ester. A lot of times, methylparaben are used in skincare projects for rejuvenation purposes.
Olea Purpurea (Olive) Fruit Oil – Pressed from the pulp of fully ripe olives, this oil is high in oleic acid and is believed to be a good skin cell regenerator. It attracts external moisture to the skin while still permitting the skin to properly release sweat, shed dead skin and release sebum. This oil is good for treating mature, inflamed or dry skin.
PEG -100 Stearate – PEG-100 Stearate is made by combining natural oils (oftentimes palm or coconut) with Stearic Acid to form a water-soluble ester. PEG-100 Stearate is primarily used as an emollient, an emulsifier and a moisturizer.
Peppermint Oil – When used topically, peppermint oil can help relieves skin irritations such as hives and rashes. The active ingredient in peppermint oil is menthol, which provides the cooling sensation felt when peppermint oil is applied topically. Peppermint oil is used on the skin both as a pure substance and as a diluted tincture. Peppermint is especially effective for the temporary relief of the dry, hacking cough caused by dusty, dry conditions often associated with the closely confined stables.
Tea Tree Oil – The use of tea tree oil for horse scratches has been found to be extremely effective in healing scratches quickly and to prevent infection. Tea tree oil for horse scratches works well not only because of its powerful antibacterial properties that keep the wound clean, but also because it reduces inflammation.
Using tea tree oil for horse scratches also relieves pain so the horse doesn’t further bother the area; it speeds healing, and keeps flies and insects out of the wound.
Eucalyptus Oil – Eucalyptus Oil is administered to horses in influenza, to dogs in distemper, to all animals in septicaemia. It is also used for parasitic skin affections.
Phenoxyethanol – Petroleum based preservative. Used as a bactericide (in conjunction with quaternary ammonium compounds), as insect repellent, a topical antiseptic, a solvent for cellulose acetate, dyes, inks and resins, in organic synthesis of plasticizers, in germicides, in pharmaceuticals, in cosmetics and in preservatives.
Potassium Hydroxide – An alkalizer used in pharmaceutical preparations.
Propylparaben – It is used as a preservative.
Tocopheryl Acetate – This synthetic version of tocopheryl (vitamin E) is an effective antioxidant, protecting cellular structures against damage from free radicals and the by-products of fat peroxidation. It acts as a free radical scavenger to prevent the by-products of chemical-cell interaction that causes cell damage. Its moisturizing and restorative qualities make it an important component of skincare.
KEY ACTIVE IN OPTI RELIEF
CELADRIN SUPPORTING SCIENCE
Q – What is Celadrin®?
A – Celadrin® is one of the newest, most effective natural anti-inflammatory compounds that safely promotes flexibility and healthy joint function. Clinical studies have reported significant results without any side effects.
Q – What is Celadrin® made from?
A – Celadrin® is made from a patented complex blend of special esterified fatty acids, derived from bovine tallow oil.
Q – Is Celadrin® Safe?
A – Celadrin® is a very safe mix of fatty acids with no known or reported negative reactions or side effects. The esterification process takes place at extremely high temperatures (over 500 degrees Fahrenheit). Scientific Acute Toxicity and Ames test screening have validated its safety. Over 100 million Celadrin® pills have been distributed to date.
Q – How does Celadrin® work?
A – Celadrin® decreases inflammation and lubricates cell membranes throughout the body, restoring fluids that cushion bones and joints to promote flexibility and mobility. Over time, because of the reduction of inflammation delivered by using Celadrin®, the joints and surrounding tissue have an opportunity to promote healthy joints.
Celadrin® works similar to, but much more dramatically than the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA from fish oils. Celadrin’s complex blend of esterified fatty acids; provide many vital and beneficial effects for the inflammatory responses in the body. Celadrin® induces changes at the cellular level, in the cell membranes which positively affect the responsiveness of the cell membranes. This aids in the reduction of cartilage breakdown in the joints.
Q – Is their any science behind Celadrin®?
A – Celadrin® has been clinically studied at various times with results published in the prestigious Journal of Rheumatology for both oral and topical applications as well as the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
For oral application, Celadrin® was studied using a double-blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled trial (the most scientifically validated type). Sixty-four participants between the ages of 37 to 77 were given Celadrin® capsules and were evaluated at the beginning of the trial, at 30 days and at the end of the 68 day study. Compared to those given a placebo, those who were given Celadrin® had more flexibility, fewer aches, less pain and were able to walk further distances than the placebo group. The study therefore concluded that Celadrin®, when taken orally improved joint and mobility problems.
For topical application of Celadrin® cream, a study was conducted at the University of Connecticut, involving 42 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Participants used either Celadrin® or a placebo cream. Patients were evaluated before application of the cream, 30 minutes after, and then again following a 30 day treatment period during which the cream was applied twice a day, morning and evening. The researchers evaluated physical function, postural movement, pain and range of motion. The test included how long it took the patient to get up and go from a chair, stair climbing, endurance, and mobility of the knee. The group receiving Celadrin® had outstanding results with reduced pain and stiffness, improved balance and strength and better mobility. 100% of the patients in the study showed significant benefit compared to the patients on the placebo. Even more exiting was that patients experienced a dramatic improvement in all aspects tested after only 30 minutes of applying the cream with cumulative benefits occurring after 30 days.
An additional study, as an extension of this original study, confirmed earlier research showing improvement in elbow, wrist and knee mobility and significant reduction in pain.
Q – Which is better, Celadrin® cream or Celadrin® pills?
A – Both oral and topical applications were shown to be equally effective in a separate study, where it was proven that the Esterified Fatty Acids (EFAC) found in Celadrin®, could be absorbed by either method (95.1% absorption rate proven through a University of Minnesota labeled study) into the body.
Q – How would you compare Vioxx and other Cox 2 – Inhibitors to Celadrin®?
A – Vioxx works as a Cox-2 inhibitor, which causes numerous side effects – including upper and lower G.I. bleeding amongst other even more serious side effects. The whole class of Cox-2 inhibitors raises doubts about their safety. These drugs were supposed to offer the pain killing features of aspirin without damage to the stomach lining.
When taking Vioxx or other Cox-2s one only receives pain relief for a short period of time. Celadrin® helps relieve the stiffened membrane caused by aging, inflammation and other assaults. Restoration and joint health begins with Celadrin® where it has immediate and cumulative benefits, with no negative side effects. Safety profile of Celadrin® is impeccable. With Celadrin® one is better off tomorrow and the next day than they are today – it just gets better every day as Celadrin® addresses causation not just the symptoms.
Celadrin® works on the cell membrane to allow rapid healing – you don’t even need glucosamine to repair cartilage, Celadrin® provides the healing of the joint and surrounding tendons and tissues. One does not need the matrix of the bone to repair a broken arm – but with Celadrin® even that broken arm will be repaired faster – naturally.
In summary, all Cox-2s inherently have serious and numerous side effects – particularly when taken daily.
Q – How does Celadrin® compare to other natural joint health products?
A – Celadrin’s beneficial effects have been proven superior in results to Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, SAMe and other natural joint health products.
Celadrin® provides restoration of a wide range of joint health conditions including sports injuries to joints, muscles, tendons and deep tissue.
Q – Can Celadrin® work well in conjunction to taking Glucosamine?
A – The cause of wear on the joint area can be attributable to inflammation as well as insufficient lubrication and cell membrane fluidity. Glucosamine assists in the rebuilding of cartilage & the overall structure of the joint and has shown moderate effects on people with osteoarthritis. Celadrin® provides continuous lubrication and allows the cell membrane to repel inflammatory chemicals. Celadrin® stops the cascade of inflammation and the assaults on the membrane which cause it to stiffen. Celadrin ® empowers glucosamine to perform faster and more efficiently in building joint cartilage as well as accelerating and promoting joint health. The dual action of Celadrin® and glucosamine provide rapid joint cushioning, quickly alleviate inflammation, build cartilage and restore the entire joint area.
Q – Does Celadrin replace fish oils?
A – Although Celadrin is a fatty acid it does not replace the need for Omega 3 fatty acids from fish oils or flaxseed oil. They are complementary and can be taken together; each having their own beneficial action.
Q – Does Celadrin work like Vioxx and Celabrex?
A – No synthetic Cox-2 inhibitors are very specific. In addition to producing inflammatory agents in the body, Cox-2 is required in the manufacture of prostacyclin a very positive prostaglandin. Because Cox-2 uses up this protective prostaglandin this is likely the reason behind its negative effects. Celadrin does not affect prostacylcin and therefor provides a safe, non-toxic anti-inflammatory action.
Q – Can I take Celadrin with Coumadin (Warfarin)?
A – The most common question received by the Celadrin website is about the use of Coumadin or Warfarin and Celadrin. Celadrin is a combination of fatty acids. The Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR) provides the following advice regarding herb and nutrient consumption while taking Coumadin or Warfarin. As you can see from the information directly from the PDR, fatty acids are not included in the list of nutrients to be avoided. The list of those that should be avoided or not to be started once you are on anti-coagulant drugs includes bromelain, coenzyme Q10, danshen, dong quai, garlic, Ginkgo biloba, ginseng and St. John’s Wort and vitamin E and vitamin K. As per the PDR none of the fatty acids (fish oil, Evening Primrose oil, Borage, Cetylated fatty acids, olive oil, are not included.
