Finally Two Guaranteed Products That Manage Pain and Rebuild Joint Cartilage

Dear Friends,

We have developed a clinically tested natural pain management product combined with a new joint product that has been clinically proven to re-grow cartilage and naturally manage pain. Wow what a breakthrough! We have named these two products Health Masters’ Proprietary Joint Rebuilding Formula and Proprietary Herbal Joint Relief Formula.

But, there is one thing I have got to tell you. You all know that I don't eat pork or shellfish but there are exceptions to products made from them. An example being thyroid extract from pork and insulin from pork.

Joint Pain

Both of these products have been real life savers. So when we started working on the joint product I was hesitant to use green mussel extract. In the initial research we did not want to include the extract. The problem is the results including it have been nothing short of miraculous. This product really works! So again, to me it falls into the categories of insulin and thyroid extract with the same incredible results. It is kind of like soy. I can’t stand it and won’t eat it but in some of our products the highest quality source of vitamin E is derived from soy. You know I tell you not to eat soy but the vitamin E from soy is great. That's the way the green mussel extract works. I don’t eat shellfish nor would I ever willingly do so but I do use and endorse this product.

My mother in law is 74 years young. She loves the product and what it has done for her joints. My wife Sharon is an active 52 year young mother of four. We exercise together 6 days a week and both of us have experienced joint improvement using this product. It has literally been a miracle for my wife's joints. Many of you may not know this but my wife is a black belt in Karate. She even won the weapons competition in the US open which is a world martial arts competition. Well to be blunt, she really messed up her shoulders, elbows, and wrists during her years in martial arts. Guess what? These two products have completely gotten rid of all her joint pain. Combining these products with H~G~H Stimulate has literally turned back the hands of time. She has even started doing pull-ups. The other day while watching her do pull-ups I reminded her that she was 52. She smiled and said I feel like I am 20 years old. Age is just a number. Then she continued doing more pull-ups. I must say God has really blessed me with an incredible wife. We have been married for 25 years. 24 of those years have been great. As I have written before one year was ruff when she started menopause. But after we discovered a hormone stabilization program she was back to normal. It’s exciting to me I have a wife who looks 30, works out like a teenager, is an incredible mother and wife, and who eats right and has written multiple bestselling books. Wow, I feel so blessed. Well enough of all the mushy stuff. I must tell you it was my privilege to develop a product that has fixed her joints.

So here is my commitment to you. Use these two products for 90 days as directed. If you do not have the same incredible results that Sharon, myself, my mother in law, and the clinical trial participants have experienced keep the product and I will give you a full credit in my office for the full purchase price of your order up to a three months supply. Plus, you don’t even need to return the unused portion. Since you are already getting my newsletter, I trust you. You see, I have already run the clinical trials. I know the results that you’re going to get. I can’t make a better offer than a no-risk-trial. I know that many of you want the clinical research behind these incredible products. Well here it is. I hope you enjoy reading the technical stuff. I find it very fascinating especially the part that compares it with other pain management products.

The results of this study demonstrated that Proprietary Herbal Joint Relief Formula (27% activity) has moderate anti-inflammatory activity. In this model, naproxen (36% activity) and aspirin (36% activity) had strong anti-inflammatory activity whereas, celecoxib (23% activity) and phenylbutazone (23% activity) had moderate activity.

Proprietary Herbal Joint Relief Formula

Proprietary Herbal Joint Relief Formula, a member of Health Masters’ Exclusive and Patented (”EP”) line is the result of Health Masters’ partnership with Biotanika™, a Canadian company that develops evidence-based natural pain management products. The formulation of Proprietary Herbal Joint Relief Formula began with investigation of the potential of the lowest possible doses of traditional herb extracts to act additively or synergistically to reduce inflammation and pain. Biotanika used three recognized models of inflammatory diseases for its pre-clinical test protocols. These protocols resulted in formulas benchmarked with current standards of care used in western medicine.

The primary goal of the first clinical trial of the two formulas was to assess the safety and efficacy for the relief of pain in fourteen patients with either low back pain, joint (knee, shoulder, or hip) pain, or muscular or articular pain (the majority had moderate-to-severe pain). These patients had been seeking alternative therapies to NSAIDs or surgery. As is most often seen in patients scheduled for knee replacement surgery or who have had knee replacements, benefit was nil. However, all patients with low back, hip and shoulder pain demonstrated significant benefit.

  • Devil’s Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) exerts anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects possibly by suppressing COX-2 and iNOS expressions,[1] reducing leukotrienes,[2] inhibiting TNF-alpha and reducing the production of metalloproteinase MMP-1, MMP-3 and MMP-9.[3]
  • Black Currant (Ribes nigrum) decreases joint tenderness and pain.[5] Prodelphinidins, the major compounds isolated from Ribes nigrum leaves, were shown to inhibit PGE2 synthesis through the inhibition of COX enzymes.[6]
  • Green-Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus), a native New Zealand shellfish contains 20% omega-3 fatty acids, as well as other pharmacologically-active material that appears to abolish inflammatory mediators and inhibit prostaglandin biosynthesis[7,8,9] thereby reducing joint pain.[10,11,12]
  • Willow Bark (Salix alba) may relieve joint pain [13,14,15] by inhibiting COX-2-mediated PGE2 release and to a lesser degree, release of TNF-alpha, IL-1beta and IL-6. [16]
  • Feverfew (Tanecetum parthenium) contains the active component, parthenolide that produces a dose-dependent inhibition thromboxane B2 and leukotriene B4 synthesis and inhibits secretion of TNF-alpha, IL-1 and IL-6. [21]
  • Meadowsweet (Spirea ulmaria) and has been used for centuries for analgesia. It contains salicylate derivatives and possesses high antioxidant activities. [23]
  • Birch (Betula alba), traditionally to heal sores and relieve pain, [24,25]contains salicylic acid and has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and diuretic properties.

Proprietary Joint Rebuilding Formula

Proprietary Joint Rebuilding Formula, a member of Health Masters’ Exclusive and Patented (”EP”) line is the result of Health Masters’ partnership with Biotanika™, a Canadian company that develops evidence-based natural health products for pain management. It is among a group of formulas that also includes Proprietary Herbal Joint Relief Formula. The formulation of Proprietary Joint Rebuilding Formula began with researchers at Biotanika investigating the potential of traditional herb extracts to act additively or synergistically to reduce inflammation and pain using the lowest doses of each herb. Biotanika used three pre-clinical test protocols that are recognized by the scientific community as good models for inflammatory diseases. These tests resulted in formulas benchmarked with current standards of care used in western medicine.

The primary goal of the first clinical trial of the two formulas was to assess the safety and efficacy for the relief of pain in fourteen patients with either low back pain, joint (knee, shoulder, or hip) pain, or muscular or articular pain (the majority had moderate-to-severe pain).

As is most often seen in patients scheduled for knee replacement surgery or who have had knee replacements, benefit was nil. However, all patients with low back, hip and shoulder pain demonstrated significant benefit.

  • Glucosamine Sulfate, a chondro-protective agent occurring naturally in all human tissues, appears to stimulate the manufacture of cartilage components and the deposition of sulfur into the cartilage. In combination with chondroitin sulfate it may be effective in patients with moderate-to-severe knee pain [1,2,3].
  • Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally-occurring, sulfur-containing, water-soluble compound (AKA DMSO2) has been demonstrated to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties [4,5].
  • Chondroitin Sulfate, a primary proteoglycan in the body, attracts and retains a significant quantity of water guaranteeing cartilage resistance and elasticity. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties. [7,8].
  • Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan in synovial fluid, helps create a viscous environment, cushion joints and maintains normal joint function. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties [9,10]
  • Vitamin C and Manganese- Vitamin C is essential for synthesis of collagen and for maintaining its integrity. Manganese is important in the growth and development of normal bone and in the synthesis of cartilage [11]. Studies in rats, rabbits and humans have demonstrated a joint supportive, anti-inflammatory effect of a combination of glucosamine, chondroitin and manganese ascorbate. [21,22].

Scientific Facts

Arthritis: a chronic degenerative disease of the articulations (cartilage); its evolution limits the mobility of the articulations and causes pain, swelling and loss of joint flexibility.

Arthrosis: is the most frequent form of arthritis; a disease associated with stress/injury to the articulations; it progresses in acute phases; often associated with age or old accidents/injuries to the articulations.

Advancements : better understanding of the mechanisms involved in the degeneration of cartilage and the development of alternative treatments that are less damaging to the GI tract.

Benefits: improvement in the quality of life such as better joint flexibility and mobility and reduced pain.
