ACK! Joint Health Support
Terminalia chebula – 10:1 concentrate
ACK! contains Terminalia chebula, also called Haritaki and Myrobalan. Considered the “King of Healing” in Tibet, Terminalia chebula is a prime Ayurvedic ingredient. Collected in the Vindhya mountain region, it is valued for its healing and rejuvenating powers. The main traditional use is to provide joint health support for joint stiffness, joint pain, inflammation, and other joint health issues. It is widely used to help strengthen and nourish the joint tissues. Highly revered in India, it is believed to increase energy, intelligence, and awareness.
Joint and connective tissue integrity, comfort, and function are critical for optimal performance in exercise, recreational, and occupational activities. The fruit of Terminalia chebula has been used extensively in many traditional health systems for different ailments, including those that affect joint health. Recent studies suggest that using Terminalia chebula as a dietary supplement can improve joint mobility, comfort, and functional capacity.
A recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study suggests Terminalia chebula extract may be effective at providing joint health support and decreasing joint discomfort. Studies in healthy subjects report that use of Terminalia chebula as a dietary supplement can increase the reported pain threshold related to range of motion and duration of joint activity. In other words, the subjects of the study were able to be active longer and to bend joints further before reporting the activity as painful.
Terminalia chebula is generally recognized to support a healthy lifestyle approach related to issues with joint health, joint pain, and joint stiffness. There is good reason to believe that a lifestyle-related approach to optimal health will benefit from support with Terminalia as a health supplement. Get moving, and say goodbye to the ACK!
