Omega-3 Supplement - A New Approach in Osteoarthritis Treatment

Did You Know? Taking a glucose based supplement in combination with oil from fish commonly known as Omega-3 supplement, can tremendously reduce pains in people suffering from a joint-pain ailment known as osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a type of inflammation in bone joints caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of cartilages (firm, rubbery tissue that cushions bones at joints) of one or more joints.

Joint Pain Treatment

To relief joint pains a natural supplement with a combination of glucosamine sulphate and omega-3, found in fish: commonly known as GlucOmega is more effective than supplementing with only glucosamine sulphate alone.

Glucosamine occurs naturally in human bodies but as people age; it becomes harder for them to produce more reserves. Glucosamine has been shown to play an important role in joint health, as it is an integral constituent in the structure of cartilage and ligaments and is essential for the smooth working and re-building of connective tissues.

The importance is supported further by a number of studies which show that the supplement can slow down or even prevent the need for total joint replacement.

According to medics, osteoarthritis is primarily related to aging. As one ages, the water content of the cartilage increases, and the protein make-up of cartilage degenerates. Eventually, cartilage begins to degenerate by flaking or forming tiny cracks. In advance cases, there's a total loss of cartilage cushion between the bones of the joints. Repetitive use of worn-out joints over the years can irritate and inflame the cartilage, causing joint pain and swelling.

Joint Pain Causes

Loss of the cartilage cushion causes friction between the bones, leading to pain and limitation of the joint mobility. Inflammation of the cartilage can also stimulate new bone outgrowth to form around the joints. Osteoarthritis occasionally can develop in multiple members of the same family, implying a hereditary basis for this condition.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis

This condition is often thought to be critical and disabling. However, experts dispute this. they say that symptoms vary greatly from person to person, and between different affected joints. Signs vary between the amount of damage to the joints and the severity of the symptoms. For example, a joint may be severely damaged without causing symptoms, or symptoms may be severe without affecting the movement of a joint.

There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but symptoms can be eased by using a number of different treatments. Mild symptoms can often be managed through exercise or by wearing suitable footwear.

How farmers can double their bean yield production

"As Jack slept, the beans germinated in the soil, and by morning a big beanstalk grew in their place. When Jack saw the great beanstalk, he immediately decided to climb..." This is a classic scenario of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' fairy tale. The same is true for Kenya's bean variety that climbs and spreads on sticks producing double the yield of local varieties.

Due to subdivision of land in Kenya, farmers are not able to produce enough beans to feed the 38.6 million people living in Kenya.This is mainly due to shrinking land sizes. This is the reason why high yielding varieties of beans that only need a small area to grow has been developed. These new varieties of beans require support with stakes (sticks) to climb on when they are growing.


The beans can grow up to a height of 3.5 meters. The long stems of this variety of beans enable it to produce more pods as compared to the normal bean varieties (bush bean).   With good management climbing beans can produce u…

Herbal Plants used for Alternative Medicine with no side effect

In a sad note, most indigenous informants keep herbal knowledge, especially the actual preparation methods, strictly secret. Luckily, an aged medicine man from Gatundu in Central Kenya, whose great knowledge of medicinal plants facilitated the write-up of this article.
In part one of this article, plants are grouped according to their medicinal use. According to the aged medicine man, simply boil the leaves, roots or the bark; add honey or milk or soup to sweeten the concoction. He recommends taking a glass in the morning and in the evening for preventive measures. 
He cautions on their medicinal uses which should be considered as neither preparation methods nor dosage prescription are provided. This is a topic that would require much more time and I have decided to leave it for part two of this article.
