The Intersection of Two Trends
With the graying of the population, joint problems have become epidemic in the United States. According to Johns Hopkins, a startling one in three American adults (or 70 million people) suffers from inflammation of the joints. At the same time, there is an increasing interest in safe, natural, and side-effect-free options to manage joint stiffness and discomfort. Celacor™ stands at the intersection of those two trends.
Celacor™ is a clinically tested, proprietary standardized extract of celery seed, an herb whose medicinal use dates back to the Greeks and Romans. Celery seed is cultivated in India, where it was used in the ancient system of Ayurveda to resolve a variety of health concerns, including joint discomfort. Celacor is manufactured in a GMP-certified facility through a proprietary process that retains the highest levels of celery seed active constituents. Head-to-head studies have shown that Celacor is more efficacious than commodity celery extracts, making it the novel ingredient of choice for joint health relief.
- Proprietary standardized extract
- Clinically shown to significantly reduce joint discomfort
- Manufactured through a proprietary process
- Retains the highest levels of celery seed active constituents
- More efficacious than commodity celery extract
Celacor™ reduces joint inflammation and supports joint mobility without gastrointestinal side-effects.
According to herbalist Dr. James Duke, celery seed contains 25 anti-inflammatory compounds. Not surprisingly, Celacor reduces joint pain by decreasing the production of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, most likely through the inhibition of COX enzymes. However, it does not cause the gastrointestinal side effects seen with other COX inhibitors. Additionally, Celacor™ has diuretic properties and flushes out uric acid crystal deposits.
Celery seed has been the subject of extensive in vitro and in vivo animal studies, and further explored in human clinical research. In vitro analysis verifies that Celacor™ contains the highest levels of celery seed active constituents. Research in rats with joint pain found that Celacor™ has inhibitive properties that rival or beat those of other remedies.
Human clinical trials conducted on Celacor™ have shown the ingredient significantly reduces joint pain — up to 75% — without causing any side effects.
In another clinical trial, investigators used the McGrill Pain Index to evaluate 14 diagnosed arthritic patients. Their results demonstrated that after 12 weeks of twice-daily treatment with a celery seed extract equal to 680 mg of seed, the usual pain level of the patients was reduced on average 52%, while the present pain level was reduced by 45%.
Celery seed extract is insoluble in water, but partially soluble in alcohol. Packaging requires a high density poly bag that is heat sealed, and HDPE containers are to be stored in a cool and dry environment. The containers should be kept tightly closed as the product is hygroscopic. Celery seed extract is chemically stable at normal temperature and pressure, and does not react with solvents and gas. If possible, avoid dust generation and excessive heat, where the flash point is +100° C.
