New help for joint stiffness and pain

Do you suffer from joint pain or stiffness? Are you concerned about the health of your joints or connective tissues? If so, today’s blog about a little known supplement could be just what the doctor ordered – literally.

Recently, I spoke with Dr. Douglas Kiburz, a practicing orthopedic surgeon. In the interview, Dr. Kiburz discussed how a patented form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is literally stealing away would-be surgical patients by greatly enhancing the health of their joints.  A fact that has him thrilled! More on that in a minute, first I’d like to share a little background on hyaluronic acid.

We’ve known about hyaluronic acid since the 1940s. It’s essentially a fancy sugar that’s found in every cell of the body and is largely responsible for lubricating our joints, eyes, discs in the back and skin. The body makes HA every day and breaks it down every day. According to Dr. Kiburz, as we age, we break down more than we produce leading to stiff cracking joints that begin to lose their natural shock absorbing ability. For years, doctors have been injecting HA directly into joints with results that can last six months or more.  More recently, oral supplements have appeard on the market.  Like many things, some people report good results while others report little to no benefit.

That’s where, according to Dr. Kiburz, Baxyl™ comes in.

Baxyl is a unique patented form of HA clinically demonstrated to provide four major areas of improvement: first, it improves joint mobility by alleviating pain and reducing inflammation.  Second, it promotes the repair, maintenance, and protection of cartilage and joint tissues. Third, Baxyl can stimulate bone formation by increasing bone mineral density and finally, it supports tissue health and function in the lining of the stomach, intestines, and bladder.

What makes Baxyl so different from other forms of HA is it’s high molecular weight. Through a patented fermentation process, Baxyl more closely resembles the HA produced by the body than any other form available. That’s why Dr Kiburz believed believes it’s so successful.  In fact, in a recent study with 50 of his patients, 84% reported good to great results after only 30 days!

If you are concerned about the health of your joints, I highly recommend you consider giving Baxyl a try.  I did, and am happy to report I noticed a difference the first week. For me, I’ve started to experience some pain and stiffness after exercise. For example, I’d do 30-minutes on the elliptical and then find my joints aching later when I walked up stairs. After only a week on Baxyl, I noticed a dramatic decrease in both pain and stiffness.  You can hear about my results and listen to the full interview with Dr. Kiburz here.

  • I received a question on our facebook page, that I wanted to answer here too.

    “Mike, are you REALLY recommending Baxyl for joint pain? Not that I believe you would lead anyone astray, but I have major knee pain. One knee is post surgery (replaced ACL in 2000) and the other knee just hurts like hell after exercise. I am actually to the point where I may not be able to jog anymore because my knees hurt so badly and it is … See Morebumming me out that I can’t run much anymore. I would love to give something a try if you think one thing is better than another. I am not a ‘supplement guy’ so I am natural a bit reluctant to try something new like this. Any info you may have would be appreciated. Thanks. ”

    Here’s my response –
    Good question Jason. Honestly, it’s probably worth a try. Here’s the deal – I can’t make promises but based on the conversation I had on my podcast with Dr. Kiburz, an orthopedic surgeon, it could help.

    When you look at arthritis, (and other connective tissue issues I suppose) you’re talking about two major issues: the health of the joint and the associated inflammation and pain that the degrading joint causes. Thus, there are two major approaches – pain/inflammation relief and helping to support the health of the connective tissue. We often recommend both but they really are different needs. Obviously, a natural pain relief (two great products are Zyflamend and Curamin) product helps to reduce inflammation but does not do anything for the health of the joint.

    Over the past decade+, glucosamine/chondroitin have been the #1 choice. While there are quite a few studies showing it helps, more recent studies are starting to call into question the effectiveness of these supplements.

    That’s where Hyaluronic Acid has come into the picture. HA is the main component of synovial fluid (the “blood” of the joint) and helps keep the joint moisturized, pliable etc. It has been injected into animals and humans since 1997, but more recently has been used orally. According to Dr. Kiburz, this patented form of HA has significantly helped his patients. Note – if you have any bone on bone issues, I wouldn’t expect much. Also note – Baxyl uses a patented form of HA that is pre-hydrated. It’s a tasteless, thick (like egg whites) fluid.

    So again, I can’t make any promises but if I were in your shoes I would definitely try it. I’ve started to develop minor knee pain and I do think it’s helped me. I’ve started working out harder and I still get some tweaks here and there, but I think it’s better.

    Did you get a chance to listen to the podcast? http://podcast.vchoice.com.

    I hope I answered everything without rambling too much. Suffice it to say, I’m convinced there are natural products that could help,and I think Baxyl is a great place to start.

  • Keep in mind that this really is only a precaution to cut back the discomfort that’s felt in the area and cannot give alleviation to the already impacted joint without having medicine. You will find numerous points that you can do to avoid the condition of elbow discomfort combined. It’s important that you simply consciously test to cut back the stress on the elbow joint since the normal joint use is less most likely to cause harm to the joint.

    Trying new is nothing wrong but trying without knowing is wrong. Until and unless your Rheumy or orthopedic doctor suggest, trying knew medicine will be risky. Baxyl is seems to be great medicine but without knowing the history, nobody should use.
