Share this article Why Should I Take Lurong Living Essential during the Challenge

LuRong LivingEssential is velvet deer antler, a whole food without extracts or infused components.  It exists in nature, and we did nothing to invent or create it.

Lurong Living Essential takes advantage of the fast growing properties of this specific tissue.  The proof is in the 2000 years of use in Chinese medicine and supportive western research.  Among its positive effects include:  increased energy, decreased joint pain/stiffness/muscle ache allowing for increased strength, increased endurance, and decreased recovery time.  The uniqueness of the product is the naturally occurring glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid; they also happen to be the building blocks of cartilage. There are studies that show that glucosamine and chondroitin can be chondroprotective, maintaining the synthesis (production) of cartilage and there is evidence that they can aid in chondromodulation by decreasing the rate of cartilage degeneration.

Along with those building blocks of cartilage, there is also a combination of associated minerals, growth factors and co-factors, which together can promote cartilage and joint health.  There are also anti-inflammatory properties, which can “cool” an irritated joint and prevent a potentially harmful inflammatory reaction, aprocess that can degrade joint tissue.  

A few words about IGF-1 (insulin growth factor), which is in Lurong Living Essential; IGF-1 is a cytokine, which in essence is a signaling molecule; it is not a hormone.  It has been shown that IGF-1 plays a significant role in the repair of cartilage by signaling the healing pathways, which may ultimately slow down theformation of arthritis.  When used in physiologic doses, IGF-1 is safe, and plays a major part in injury recovery.

In short, LuRong Living Essential is a whole food with unique properties not currently found in our diet today. The fact that that these amazing properties were not altered or synthesized is paramount in helping to signal the body to absorb, utilize and heal.  Lurong Living Essential supports your short-term performance goals while providing you with the necessary nutrients essential for your long-term joint health.
