Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum)



Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus)



Arthriblend ®



(Combination of Glucosamine Sulfate, Boswellin®, Curcumin C3 Complex ® and Bioperine ®






Reishi contains constituents – including lanostanic triterpenoids – from the fruit bodies of this remarkable specie have been shown to be anti-inflammatory in the treatment of arthritis.  Concurrent with the well-known anti-inflammatory properties of Reishi is the production of interleukin 2, 6 and interleukin 9 which are typically associated with an inflammatory response in the immune system.  This apparent contradiction – an immune enhancer being an anti-inflammatory may be further explained in that the effects of Reishi can be bi-directional at different dosages.  The end result of many studies is that Reishi is an anti-inflammatory agent and yet an immuno-enhancer. 


  • Adverse reactions are extremely rare, but using reishi for three to six months continuous my result in dryness of the mouth, throat and nasal passages; stomach upset; or nosebleed.  These complications appear so seldom that their exact causes are not known.
  • If taking blood-thinning medications such as warfarin, use Reishi only under a doctor’s supervision.
  • Reishi might have hypotensive activity, so avoid using with antihypertensive medication.

Lion’s Mane

Not only does Lion’s Mane have neuro-protective effects, but it also acts as an anti-inflammatory.


Glucosamine Sulphate

Glucosamine is an amino sugar, which is a constituent of cartilage proteoglycans.  Glucosamine is required for the synthesis of glycoproteins, glycolipids and glycosaminoglycans.  These carbohydrate-containing compounds are found in tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial fluid, mucous membranes, structures of the eye, blood vessels and heart valves. 

In osteoarthritis, glucosamine stimulates metabolism of chondrocytes in the articular cartilage and of synovial cells in the synovial tissues.


Boswellic acids, active components of boswellia, deactivate the hormonal triggers for inflammation and pain in osteoarthritis.  These acids effectively shrink inflamed tissue by stimulating the growth of cartilage, increase blood supply to inflamed joints, enhance the repair of local blood vessels damaged by inflammation.

Curcumin C3 Complex

Curcumin C3 Complex® enjoys a special place among curcumin extracts. The name C3 Complex has reference to its three main chemical compounds – Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin and Bisdemethoxycurcumin – collectively known as Curcuminoids.

The volatile oil in turmeric can ease acute pain caused by a number of mechanisms.  Curcumin fight atherosclerosis by deactivating platelet-activating factor (PAF). 

Curcumin relieves the discomfort of bursitis and carpal tunnel syndrome by deactivating immune cells that may cause inflammation, without harming other parts of the immune system essential to fighting infection.

Intense clinical studies have shown the following health benefits of curcuminoids:

  • Prevents tissue damage from free radicals
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Boost immunity
  • Support healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels
  • Blocks platelet aggregation
  • Prevents liver from toxic compounds
  • Stimulates macrophages to clear the central nervous system from Alzheimer’s disease associated toxic oligomer.
  • Specifically inhibit virus replication in tested viruses.


Bioperine® is a standardized extract from the fruit Piper nigrum L (black pepper) or Piper longum L (long pepper).  It contains 95% piperine. It significantly enhances the bioavailability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption.

 How does it work:

The metabolic process that generates energy at the cellular level in the human body is called thermogenesis. Though thermogenesis has been identified as a key factor in maintaining weight loss, it has also been identified as playing an integral role in utilizing the daily food and nutrients that the human body consumes.  Its sets in motion the mechanism that lead to digestion and subsequent gastrointestinal absorption

Adverse reactions and interactions:

  • Do not use Antiflamcare if you are taking any blood-thinning medication such as warfarin.
  • Glucosamine sulphate seems to have little or no effect on the control of blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes.  Do not use Glucosamine if you have a shellfish allergy as it is derived from the exoskeletons of shrimp, lobster and crabs. Allergic reactions in people with shellfish allergy are caused by IgE antibodies to antigen in the meat of shellfish, not to the antigens in shells and no documented reports of allergic reaction in shellfish has been reported.  Glucosamine might also exacerbate asthma by an unidentified allergic mechanism, use cautiously.
  • Boswellin stimulated blood circulation, do not use boswellia during pregnancy.  A few side effects have been reported such as occasional allergic reaction – diarrhoea, skin rash, or nausea.  Not recommended for young children, pregnant of nursing women, or those with severe liver and kidney disease.


Maintenance Dose:  Take 1 to 3 capsules daily with meals.

Therapeutic dose:  Take 2 capsules three times daily with food.
