People have been seeking a “miracle cure” for inflammation for many millennia. The earliest doctors identified the signs much the same way as we do today…swelling, pain, redness, and loss of function. While there were some rather odd ideas of how to reduce inflammation in the body back then, there are literally hundreds of different treatments to be found online. So, if you’re a woman who suffers from chronic inflammation, stiffness, or soreness from overdoing it at the gym, or if you’re recovering from a sports injury, how do you sort through the abundance of remedies to find a long-term solution that truly works?
Modern medicine has revealed that chronic inflammation may be linked to bigger risks of developing long-term health issues, such as arthritis, that if left untreated, can sometimes lead to more serious conditions: autoimmune disorders, certain cancers, bowel conditions such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. The good news is unhealthy inflammation can be controlled – and the even better news is now it can be done naturally.
Mend™, a life sciences and biotechnology company, creates nature-powered products that provide revolutionary new ways to maintain your daily health. Their approach bridges the gap between mainstream medicine and nature, by reducing inflammation and helping to hasten the healing process. The science team at mend™ has identified and meticulously researched the most bioavailable sources, ensuring each of their products is carefully formulated with the perfect balance of natural ingredients.
One of the premier offerings from mend™ is Perform. An excellent way to lower chronic inflammation is to start using a product powered by nature, that contains superstar ingredients, which are well-known for how they can help to reduce inflammatory markers. Perform by mend™ is a potent blend of natural nutrition which supports smoother, easier movement by naturally managing inflammation to ease aches, strains, stiffness, and soreness. Made with turmeric, ashwagandha, and other micronutrients, Perform includes additional supportive, natural ingredients, such as ginger root and tart cherry.
Turmeric is widely known for supplying unparalleled amounts of bioavailable curcumin, while ashwagandha has a long history of promoting healthy effects on physical response and joint health. Organic extracts of tart cherry and ginger root are traditionally known for properties that enable the body to have an enhanced healthy response to inflammation.
Taking Perform daily will encourage a quicker recovery for the body, enabling a faster return to peak performance. This combination of ingredients is clinically shown to be efficacious in supporting healthy inflammatory response and healthy joint function.
The story behind the development of Perform and the other nature-powered products offered by mend™ is one driven by personal experience and modern science. The four co-founders realized early on that their own experiences with healing had served to identify gaps in the healthcare system, which they knew needed to be improved. A clear example was a prolonged healing process from an injury, which caused Eziah Syed, one of the mend™ co-founders much personal pain and frustration. Through that lived experience, he was inspired to find a better way to treat the daily wear and tear that comes with living.
With a shared commitment to the power and impact of natural ingredients, they joined together to create mend™, a company that advocates a natural approach to healing and living well through nutrition. Their primary motivation is a strong belief in the power of healing, and recognition that any breakthroughs they make have the potential to benefit anyone, anywhere. That said, it’s easy to integrate a product like Perform into your daily routine.
Perform and the other mend™ products are put through a rigorous series of user-reported clinical trials to ensure safety and efficacy. This enables physicians to provide their patients with recommendations for natural nutrition solutions to help enhance and expedite their recovery and their overall well-being post-surgery. The mend™ team continues to monitor the latest research, working with a network of advisors, partners, and clients to identify emerging needs.
Utilizing evidence-based clinical nutrition drives improved outcomes for injury, surgery, illness, aging, and human performance. For anyone who wants to repair, recover, and return to their daily lives faster, these nature-powered products can help to optimize your diet, while managing inflammation, so you can feel better every day.
It should be noted that inflammation is not always a bad thing and is sometimes your body’s natural way of protecting you from viruses, bacteria, or infection. Acute Inflammation, the normal response to illness or injury, is generally short-term, with increased blood flow, the build-up of white blood cells, and heightened permeability of the blood vessels. It’s crucial to know the difference between those circumstances, and the times when despite the fact that there’s no real threat to your health, your immune system triggers inflammation anyway. The immune system has the capability to become overactive and at that point, it engages in a futile battle with innocuous agents or even within your own body, in which case it has the potential to develop into a disease. One of the most common examples of this sort of inflammation is evident in a person who suffers from arthritis.
Depending on the site of the inflammatory response, it has the frightening potential to cause damage to your heart, brain, or digestive system, to name a few. People who deal with chronic inflammation often experience achy, stiff joints, which can be debilitating as they age. This is why it’s important to proactively combat inflammation as soon as it’s diagnosed. The old proverb, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” reminds us that it’s easier to stop something from happening in the first place than to attempt to repair the ensuing damage.
Whether you make the decision to start taking a natural product as a preventative measure or your doctor has recommended it to hasten healing, post-surgery, remember that it’s essential to take it at regular intervals on a daily basis. By reducing inflammation and helping to accelerate the healing process post-surgery, products such as Perform have a proven effectiveness in expediting repair and recovery.
