Health Alert: Vioxx Pulled From Market; Shaklee to the
The Journal of the American Medical Association has linked
the popular and heavily marketed arthritis drug, Vioxx, to
dangerous blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes. In
response, the company has pulled the product from the
This popular 5-year old pain medication accounted for 2.5
Billion in sales last year! Vioxx has been prescribed
heavily for arthritic pain complaints. As a Cox-2
inhibitor, it was considered the “safe alternative” to the
use of NSAIDs like Aleve. This is the last in a long line
of pain relief preparations that have turned out to cause
serious health risks.
In 1998 the American Journal of Medicine reported that
approximately 107,000 patients are hospitalized annually
for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-related
gastrointestinal (GI) complications and at least 16,500
NSAID-related deaths occur each year among arthritis
patients alone. (1) This number of deaths is equal to the
number of dead there would be from three jumbo jet plane
crashes a week!
The good news for those suffering from arthritic (or other)
pain is Shaklee’s trio of pain relief products. They work,
they are safe, and they are guaranteed by Shaklee -- the
most-respected supplement manufacturer, bar none!
Shaklee Pain Relief Complex is for the treatment of
arthritic pain. The primary ingredient, Boswellia extract,
has been used in India for a long time to reduce joint
pain. It possesses good anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic,
and analgesic activity. A recent study on patients with
osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee using Boswellia found
decreases in knee pain, increased knee flexion and
increased walking distance. The frequency of swelling in
the knee joint was also decreased. Other studies have also
found it effective for the treatment of chronic and
ulcerative colitis! This product promises to be a great
benefit to those with the arthritic pain. For more
information on Shaklee Pain Relief Complex and/or to order
it online go to: http://www.shaklee.com/product/20667
Shaklee’s Joint and Muscle Pain Cream is a topical cream
that provides quick penetrating relief from the muscle and
joint pain associated with overuse during exercise. The
active ingredient is menthol, which is found in many other
sport rubs. However, Shaklee’s Joint and Muscle Pain cream
has improved on that concept by improving the delivery,
with a patented liposome delivery system. This makes it
fast acting and provides prolonged release! For more
information on this product and/or to order it online go
Shaklee’s Joint Health Complex features the active
ingredient Glucosamine Hydrochloride. The research on
Glucosamine goes back to the early 1980’s and has
demonstrated not just the reduction of symptoms, but also
improvements in the health (and in 25% of cases) the
thickness of articular cartilage! People experience
noticeable results in flexibility in as little as a week!

and/or to order it online go to:
For those suffering from the pain and disability of
osteoarthritis, a combination of Joint Health Complex and
the new Pain Relief Complex is recommended. For those who
experience the aches and pains of daily over-activity (like
from prolonged computer usage, or weekend sports
activities) then the Joint and Muscle Pain Cream should be
just what you need!
