What Is It?

Joint Optimizer (Inflammation Balance Formula) is
designed to support a healthy balance of immune mediator
activity, part of the body's natural inflammatory response, to
promote healthy joint function and comfort.*

Joint Optimizer was formulated with Dr. Sam
Yanuck, D.C, P.A. Dr. Yanuck is a graduate of
Cornell University and Palmer Chiropractic
University. He completed postdoctoral training
in functional neurology and has an extensive
background in nutritional biochemistry.
Dr. Yanuck has authored articles on functional
illness and treatment in the International
Journal of Neuroscience, is a periodic guest
lecturer at local universities and hospitals
and has lectured in the U.S. and abroad.
He has been in practice for 16 years and is
located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Uses For Joint Optimizer

Joint Health: Joint Optimizer is uniquely formulated to
maintain the body's natural mechanisms for upregulation
and downregulation of immune mediators. Cytokines and
prostaglandins are chemical messengers that influence
cellular activities in a variety of tissues. Maintaining
healthy cytokine and prostaglandin function helps to
lessen occasional pain and to sustain healthy joint mobility
and comfort. In a 4-week trial organized by Dr. Yanuck,
three fourths of volunteers that were supplemented with
Joint Optimizer experienced positive support, including
the ability to resume physical activity. Dr. Yanuck credits
this with the potential of the formula to help lessen the
activity of immune mediators without suppressing them
completely, which would create an undesirable reaction
by the immune system on musculoskeletal tissues.*

The body's natural inflammatory response is influenced by
many factors, only some of which may be affected by the
ingredients in this formula.
