Improved Joint Mobility Associated with Reduced Inflammation Related to Consumption of Nopal Cactus Fruit Juice: Results from a Placebo-Controlled Trial Using Digital Inclinometry to Objectively Document Mobility of All Major Joints

Objective To evaluate the effects of daily consumption of Nopal cactus fruit juice (NFJ) on joint mobility in a population experiencing chronic pain but otherwise in good health. Study design A double-blind, placebo-controlled study design was used to enroll 40 people after written informed consent, randomized to consume 3 oz/day […]

Consumption of dried apple peel powder increases joint function and range of motion.

Abstract The goal for this study was to evaluate the effects of consumption of dried apple peel powder (DAPP) on joint function and range of motion (ROM). Additional in vitro and clinical testing was performed to suggest specific mechanisms of action. An open-label clinical pilot study involved 12 healthy people […]

Increased antioxidant capacity and inhibition of lipid peroxidation in healthy adults consuming an acai (Euterpe oleracea) fruit-based juice.

Abstract: The in vitro and in vivo properties of an açai based juice blend (MonaVie Active®, Salt Lake City, UT) were evaluated. Initially, a phenolic profile was determined for the beverage, and a cell-based antioxidant protection (CAP-e) assay (Honzel et al., 2008) was performed, which showed that the antioxidants in […]

Pain reduction and improvement of range of motion after consumption of MonaVie Active, an Acai-rich fruit/berry juice blend.

Abstract The objective was to evaluate the impact of consumption of an Acai-rich fruit/berry juice blend on pain and range of motion. An open-label clinical pilot study was performed by recruiting 14 study participants with some limitations in range of motion associated with pain and affecting their activities of daily living. The […]
