If you hear someone talk about joint pain – like rheumatoid arthritis – you probably think of the elderly, right?

Unfortunately, this is a common myth that gives many people a false sense of security.

The truth is anyone can get joint inflammation at any age. It’s not just for when you get older, and the cause of joint pain isn’t just from wear and tear and old age.

Joint inflammation occurs when your immune cells accidentally mislabel your own tissues as invading pathogens and start attacking them. This can happen to anyone and can cause significant joint pain.

But let’s take a step back and assume it does only occur with the elderly. Would you just wait until you got older and pray you don’t get it?

No! The best thing you can do is take preventative measures for now and in the future.

One of the strongest contributing factors is coded into our DNA: many genes and variants have been associated with joint inflammation.

Luckily, with the revolutionary technology of a gene-based tool like SelfDecode, you can unlock the answers within your DNA.

I’m super excited to announce our Joint Inflammation DNA Report! This report will help anyone experiencing joint inflammation find the perfect diet, supplement, and lifestyle changes to naturally decrease inflammation and reduce your pain!

It also plays a key role in providing you with suggestions to take preventative actions to optimize your health so that you’ll never have to deal with it in the first place!

Vitamin E, TNFAIP3 Gene, and Joint Inflammation

Vitamin E is one of the key players in determining your risk of suffering from joint inflammation.

What’s the link with your DNA?

The TNFAIP3 gene helps reduce the activity of an inflammatory protein involved in the development of joint inflammation issues like rheumatoid arthritis.

The negative variant is underactive, so it doesn’t work as well as it should.

Vitamin E helps increase TNFAIP3 activity, so low Vitamin E levels means increased inflammation and an increased risk of developing joint inflammation issues.

If you have the good variant of the TNFAIP3 gene, low Vitamin E levels will still negatively affect your susceptibility. But if you carry the bad variant, it’s even worse!

This is a good example as to why understanding YOUR genes is the key to building a personalized regimen that will optimize your health and help you with your joint problems!
