Rheumatoid Arthritis results from the immune system attacking the lining of the person’s own joints – resulting in inflammation, swelling and pain. Sadly, Rheumatoid Arthritis affects the entire body and is a chronic, progressive, painful and disabling autoimmune disease.
Recently, in The Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, doctors reported that people with rheumatoid arthritis were found to have lower levels of common antioxidants in their blood – often for years before the arthritis is diagnosed. These studies have not determined if the lower level of antioxidants is the cause of, or simply something that affects, the development of Rheumatoid Arthritis. But either way, an antioxidant deficiency plays a role in the development of the disease.
However, fulvic acid – when administered in a supplement – is proven to regulate the immune system, and to work as a potent antioxidant & anti-inflammatory agent. Fulvic acid supplements have been shown to relieve joint swelling. Additionally, Fulvic acid been shown to bond to the body’s collagen fibers to aid in repair of damaged tendons & bone. In fact, tendon strength has been shown to increase by as much as 75% in people taking Fulvic Acid Supplements!
And since Fulvic Acid supplements are made from 100% natural plant-based sources, they should not interfere with any Rheumatoid Arthritis drugs. (Always consult your physician before taking any supplement if you are being treated for Rheumatoid Arthritis.)
