Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Celadrin?

Celadrin® is one of the newest, most effective natural anti-inflammatory compounds that safely promotes flexibility and healthy joint function. Published clinical studies have reported significant results without any side effects.

What is Celadrin® made from?

Celadrin® is made from a patented complex blend of special esterified fatty acids oil.

Is Celadrin® Safe?

Celadrin® is a very safe mix of fatty acids with no known or reported negative reactions or side effects in clinical studies. The esterification process takes place at extremely high temperatures (over 500 degrees Fahrenheit). Scientific Acute Toxicity and Ames test screening have validated its safety. Over 1 billion Celadrin® pills have been distributed to date.

How does Celadrin® work?

Celadrin® decreases inflammation and lubricates cell membranes throughout the body, restoring fluids that cushion bones and joints to promote flexibility and mobility. Over time, because of the reduction of inflammation delivered by using Celadrin® the joints and surrounding tissue have an opportunity to promote healthy joints.

Celadrin® works similar to, but much more dramatically than the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA from fish oils. Celadrin’scomplex blend of esterified fatty acids; provide many vital and beneficial effects for the inflammatory responses in the body. Celadrin® induces changes at the cellular level, in the cell membranes which positively affect the responsiveness of the cell membranes. This aids in the reduction of cartilage breakdown in the joints.

Is there any science behind Celadrin®?

Celadrin® has been clinically studied at various times with results published in the prestigious Journal of Rheumatology for both oral and topical applications as well as the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. For oral application, Celadrin® was studied using a double blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled trial (the most scientifically validated type). Sixty-four participants between the ages of 37 to 77 were given Celadrin® capsules and were evaluated at the beginning of the trial, at 30 days and at the end of the 68 day study. Compared to those given a placebo, those who were given Celadrin® had more flexibility, fewer aches, less pain and were able to walk further distances than the placebo group. The study therefore concluded that Celadrin® when taken orally improved joint and mobility problems. The clinical trial was published in the prestigious and internationally acclaimed Journal of Rheumatology. For topical application of Celadrin® cream, a study was conducted at the University of Connecticut, involving 42 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Participants used either Celadrin® or a placebo cream. Patients were evaluated before application of the cream, 30 minutes after, and then again following a 30 day treatment period during which the cream was applied twice a day, morning and evening. The researchers evaluated physical function, postural movement, pain and range of motion. The test included how long it took the patient to get up and go from a chair, stair climbing, endurance, and mobility of the knee. The group receiving Celadrin® had outstanding results with reduced pain and stiffness, improved balance and strength and better mobility. 100% of the patients in the study showed significant benefit compared to the patients on the placebo. Even more exciting was that patients experienced a dramatic improvement in all aspects tested after only 30 minutes of applying the cream with cumulative benefits occurring after 30 days. An additional published study, as an extension of this original study, confirmed earlier research showing improvement in elbow, wrist and knee mobility and significant reduction in pain.

Which is better, Celadrin® cream or Celadrin® pills?

Both oral and topical applications were shown to be equally effective. In a separate study, it was proven that the Esterified Fatty Acids (EFAC) found in Celadrin® could be absorbed by either method (95.1% absorption rate proven through a University of Minnesota labeled study) into the body.

Can I take Celadrin with Coumadin (Warfarin)?

One of the most common questions received by the Celadrin® website is about the use of Coumadin or Warfarin and Celadrin®. Celadrin® is a combination of fatty acids. The Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR) provides the following advice regarding herb and nutrient consumption while taking Coumadin or Warfarin. The list of those that should be avoided or not to be started once you are on anti-coagulant drugs includes bromelain, coenzyme Q10, danshen, dong quai, garlic, Ginkgo biloba, ginseng and St. John’s Wort and vitamin E and vitamin K. Fatty acids (fish oil, Evening Primrose oil, Borage, Cetylated fatty acids, olive oil) are not included.

“ This stuff is amazing! I woke up this morning with such a stiff neck I could hardly move my head let alone lift it off the pillow. In desperation I reached for the tube of Flexdrin which just happened to be under the duvet at the bottom of the bed. Rubbed a goodly dose on and lay back listening to the news. When I was ready to get up I could hardly believe the difference in my neck! No less than amazing...better take a few tubes along for the Q4Q ride!”
