Zwell has picked REFLEXIR™ as the best natural product to address joint pain, and the stiffness and inflammation that are commonly associated with arthritis and overuse. Why settle for temporary relief of pain when you can get to the root of the problem?

Unlike other joint and arthritis products, Zwell Joint Health (Reflexir™) attacks the root cause – inflammation. Pain relief isn’t enough because it’s only temporary - you need to attack the underlying problem. Most people don’t realize that the key is inflammation around the joint. Zwell Reflexir® is different from the usual joint and arthritis products, because not only is pain relieved, but the underlying cause (inflammation) is addressed as well. Why settle for temporary relief of pain when you can get to the root of the problem?
Inflammation not only increases the pain, but it also blocks medications from getting through, preventing the body from activating its own natural functions which will actually help to repair the joint. Zwell Reflexir® combines two completely natural and research proven ingredients, Maca root and Cat’s Claw, to silence the genes that trigger inflammation, and activate the repair process in the joint.
Zwell has chosen REFLEXIR™ as the best natural product available for joint pain and related conditions due to its excellent formulation, product quality and purity, and proven track record with joint pain sufferers.
Zwell Reflexir® contains scientifically backed ingredients that effectively treat joint pain and inflammation. The history of the ingredients lies in two of the Amazon’s greatest gifts: Cat’s Claw (Uncaria Tomentosa) and Maca (Lepidium meyenii walp) the combination of these two plant extracts have produced a very potent product for joint pain, stiffness and immobility associated with arthritis and overuse.
Cat’s Claw Extract
Cat’s Claw is a large, woody vine that derives its name from hook-like thorns that grow along the vine that resemble the claws of a cat. It’s native to the Amazon Rainforest and is considered sacred by the local Indians. Ashaninka Indians have used both the bark and roots of the vine for generations to treat numerous health problems. More recent studies have proven that Cat’s Claw also contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Although Cat’s Claw is well documented as a very effective antioxidant, it’s believed that constituents in Cat’s Claw block the production of substances such as prostaglandins and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha, which are involved in inflammatory pathways. (Aliment Pharmacol Ther 12, 1279-1289). One study showed it provided significant pain relief and increased joint mobility within a one week period. (Inflamm.res, 50 (2001) 442-448).
Maca is a root vegetable that grows only in the Andean highlands zone of Peru, at altitudes of 4,250m. above sea level (approx 14,000 ft) Maca planting was domesticated about 2,000 years ago by the Incas and used ever since by the people as part of their daily diet. It has long been used as an adaptogen herb to help restore vitality and increase sexual health by stimulating the body’s systems. Recent research has shed a light on how and why Maca has also been used as a treatment for arthritis.
One study showed Maca can activate the gene for Insulin Growth Factor -1 (IGF-1) in local tissues independent of other stimuli. This gene is normally suppressed during inflammation.
In combining the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of Cat’s Claw with Maca’s ability to restore joint health, these two plant extracts have yielded some significant research and clinical results for addressing joint pain and repair.

In this century, the world will have more people living into their 80s and 90s than ever before, with the number of people 80+ set to quadruple between 2000 and 2050.
Increased life expectancy is largely due to improvements in public health, and healthy ageing is linked directly to health in earlier stages of life.
Although it is natural for biological processes to decline with age, the rate at which our body’s decline is impacted by many controllable lifestyle factors such as how we eat, how we move, and how many toxic substances we are exposed to.
