Arthritis is a general term that means inflammation of the joints. Arthritis is characterized by redness, warmth, swelling, and pain in the joints.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of chronic joint inflammation that usually occurs in joints on both sides of the body, such as hands, wrists, or knees. This symmetry helps distinguish rheumatoid arthritis from other types of arthritis.
In addition to affecting the joints, rheumatoid arthritis may occasionally affect the skin, eyes, lungs, heart, blood, or nerves.
Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include:
- Joint pain and swelling
- Stiffness, especially in the morning or after sitting for a long time
Rheumatoid arthritis is different effect on each person. In some people, joint symptoms develop gradually over several years. Whereas in some others, rheumatoid arthritis may develop rapidly. and there also may have rheumatoid arthritis for a certain period and then entered a period of remission.
What Causes Rheumatoid Arthritis?
The exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not known for sure, but suspected the disease is caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and hormonal. In rheumatoid arthritis, there are some things that trigger the immune system to attack the joints and sometimes other organs. Some theories suggest that there is a virus or bacteria may alter the immune system, causing the immune system to attack the joints. Another theory suggests that smoking can lead to getting rheumatoid arthritis.
Research has not fully determine exactly what role genetics play in rheumatoid arthritis. However, some people seem to have a genetic or hereditary factors increase the susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis.
How Rheumatoid Arthritis Affects Our Bodies?
Once the immune system is triggered, immune cells migrate from the blood into the joints and joint-lining tissue, called synovium. In these places, the immune cells produce inflammatory substances that cause irritation, erode cartilage (cushioning material at the end of the bone), as well as swelling and inflammation of the lining of the joints. As the cartilage erodes, the space between the bones narrows. If the condition worsens, the bones could rub against one another.
Inflammation of the lining of the joints causing excess fluid to the joints. Along layer expands, then this may erode the adjacent bone, resulting in damage to the bone fastener.
All of the above cause the joint to become very sore, swollen and feels warm to the touch.
How Rheumatoid Arthritis Diagnosed?
Diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis bernacam based on a combination of factors, including:
- Location and symmetry-specific joint pain, especially the joints of the hands
- The existence of joint stiffness in the morning
- Lumps and nodules under the skin (rheumatoid nodules)
- The results of x-ray test that shows the presence of rheumatoid arthritis
- Rheumatoid factor positive results of blood tests performed as well as other blood tests
Most people are affected by rheumatoid arthritis have an antibody rheumatoid factor (RF) in their blood. But sometimes there are people who do not have these antibodies and rheumatoid arthritis affected because there are other diseases that can cause rheumatoid factor to be produced in the blood. Therefore, the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis is based on a combination of joint disorders and blood test results.

How to Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis?
There are various ways to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Treatments include medications, rest and exercise, and surgery to repair damage to the joints.
The type of treatment used must depend on several factors, which include among which age, overall health, medical history, and severity of arthritis.
The new blood test and more specific for rheumatoid arthritis is cyclic citrulline antibody test, also called the anti-CCP. The presence of anti-CCP antibodies showed a general trend to a more aggressive rheumatoid arthritis.
People with rheumatoid arthritis may have mild anemia. Blood tests can also reveal the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or increased levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), which is a marker of inflammation.
Some people with rheumatoid arthritis may also have positive results on tests of antinuclear antibodies (ANA), which indicate the presence of autoimmune disorders, whether these disorders rheumatoid arthritis or other autoimmune diseases.
Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Be Cured?
Although there is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, but the early and aggressive treatment has been shown to help prevent disability.
[ TESTIMONIAL ]
Crohns and Arthritis
At age 24 I was diagnosed with Crohns disease and also suffered from rheumatoid arthritis. The medical world does not have good answers for autoimmune diseases. I was treated with steroids, anti-inflammatory drugs and a chemo-like poison was suggested. When I got some relief the drug side-effects were frightening and life threatening. Then along came Shaklee’s Vivix. I took it for only a few weeks when it was again time to try to wean me off the meds to see if I could live without them. It had never worked before.
This time, Crohns did not flare up again and I am free from arthritis symptoms. It has been 11 months of good health. I have never felt better! In addition to my everyday teaspoon of Vivix, I take Easy Gest, Omega Guard, and Vitalizer. Using gene-silencing, Resveratrol switched off genes involved in the initiation and progression of disease.
Q. What is Vivix™?
A. Vivix is a patent-pending, powerful, and exclusive polyphenol blend with ingredients shown in laboratory research to positively impact four key mechanisms of cellular aging, including helping to protect and repair DNA damage, positively influencing genetic regulators of cellular longevity, promoting mitochondrial energy production, and slowing formation of AGE proteins.*
Q. Who can benefit from Vivix?
A. Any adult concerned with cellular aging and optimal well-being.* Vivix is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women, or anyone younger than 18 years old.
Q. What is resveratrol?
A. A natural compound found in some plants, fruits, seeds, grapes, and grape-derived products such as red wine. Resveratrol has polyphenolic and antioxidant activities that have been found to potentially improve health and well-being in laboratory studies from around the globe. In addition, emerging laboratory research has found that resveratrol fights cellular aging. These studies also found that resveratrol activates genetic regulators of cellular longevity pathways, which may have positive effects on DNA, cellular health, and metabolism.*
Q. How much resveratrol does Vivix provide?
A. Vivix delivers 100 mg of resveratrol per serving. The resveratrol extract has a natural resveratrol content of 98% and the amount of resveratrol in Vivix is guided by the latest scientific studies and emerging research. Vivix goes beyond resveratrol by combining it with a patent-pending blend of additional polyphenolsmade from the only grape in nature with an extra chromosome. Laboratory studies have found that this unique combination is able to positively impact the four key mechanisms of cellular aging and is 10 times more effective than resveratrol alone in slowing AGE protein formation.*
Q. What are polyphenols?
A. Polyphenols are a group of phytochemicals that are plant-derived compounds with both potential antioxidant and cellular anti-aging benefits. In fact, emerging research has reported that polyphenols may elicit multiple biological effects consistent with sustained and improved human health.*
Q. Is Vivix an antioxidant product?
A. Vivix has polyphenol ingredients that have been shown in laboratory studies to positively impact the four key mechanisms of cellular aging and therefore goes well beyond providing antioxidant support.*

– One teaspoon of Vivix delivers the equivalent amount of the resveratrol found in 100 glasses of red wine.
– In laboratory studies, the ingredients in Vivix have been shown to impact the four key mechanisms of cellular aging.*
- DNA Damage. Every day, every cell in your body is bombarded by up to a million DNA-damaging assaults. These assaults can damage the cell’s genetic database, creating a “typo” that may compromise cell function and longevity. Vivix ingredients help protect and repair cellular DNA.*
- Genetic Regulators.Genetic regulators contribute to age-related cellular deterioration. Vivix ingredients positively impact genetic regulators* which help turn down cellular aging.*
- Declining Cellular Energy Production. Mitochondria in our cells create energy we can’t live without. As mitochondrial efficiency decreases, cell function declines. Vivix ingredients promote mitrochondrial biogenesis*
- Accumulation of AGE Proteins. Excess accumulation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGE) can cause cellular damage that can compromise cell integrity and longevity. Vivix ingredients are 10x more powerful than resveratrol at slowing AGE protein formation.*
