Your Essential Guide to Vitamin K2 with Meredith Warner, MD

Daily Support For Improved Brain, Bone & Heart Health

Dr. Meredith Warner’s Vitamin K2 + Olive Oil Softgels are formulated to promote strong bones through improved calcium absorption and increased bone density. Vitamin K2 and extra virgin olive oil are also super heart-healthy in their ability to clear clogged arteries and improve circulation.

Vitamin K2 naturally occurs in domestic farm animals like poultry, dairy cows, and pigs. This essential nutrient was inadvertently removed when these animals were moved from pastures into industrialized feedlots. Thus, most people are deficient in Vitamin K2, which has caused a serious impact on our health.

  • Bone Health: promotes bone density and strength, reduces the risk of osteoporosis and fracture risks
  • Heart Health: reduces arterial calcification and reduces the risk of heart disease and overall mortality
  • Calcium Support: activates osteocalcin to promote calcium binding to the bone mineral matrix
  • Arterial Blood Flow: improves blood flow and circulation and keeps arteries more flexible and responsive
  • Blood Sugar: improves insulin resistance and reduces the risk of type-2 diabetes
  • Brain Health: recent studies highlighted Vitamin K involvement in brain cells development and survival and promote proper brain function.

“After the age of 50, unfortunately, your bone breakdown happens faster than your bones can form. Vitamin K, specifically the Vitamin K2 present in our Bone & Heart Health Supplements, is essential for osteocalcin synthesis, which promotes calcium binding to your bones, while also activating GLA proteins that inhibit that calcium from accumulating in your vascular structures.”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Why does your supplement combine Vitamin K2 and Olive Oil?

A: Vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin. We combined K2 with Olive Oil to increase its ability to absorb in the body. Olive Oil is also a heart-healthy fat that has anti-inflammatory substances that reduce CRP inflammation markers.

Why You Should Start Cooking With Olive Oil

Q: Should I take Vitamin K2 with a Calcium supplement?

A: Vitamin K2 assists your body in absorbing and putting calcium where it is needed. Calcium likes to accumulate on blood vessel walls. Vitamin K2 can block calcium from entering and adhering to the blood vessels.

Osteoporosis 3 Stages on white background

Q: Does Vitamin K2 really increase bone density?

A: Yes! Vitamin K2 is essential in osteocalcin synthesis in the body. Osteocalcin promotes the binding of calcium to your bone mineral matrix structures to increase bone density.

warfarin tablet packs

Q: Can I take Vitamin K2 if I’m on Warfarin (Coumadin)?

A: Those taking the medication Warfarin (Coumadin) should only consume Vitamin K2 supplements after consulting with their healthcare provider as it can decrease the effects of the medication.

Q: What Are MK-4 and MK-7?

A: MK-4 (Menaquinone-4) and MK-7 (Menaquinone-7) are both natural forms of Vitamin K2. They can be found naturally in eggs and dairy products like milk and cheese.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Why does it contain caffeine? I’ve heard caffeine is bad for you.

A: Overall, caffeine has a number of positive effects on the brain, including increased alertness and improved cognitive function. Additionally, caffeine may help protect against neurological disorders. However, it’s important to note that caffeine can also have some negative effects, such as anxiety, disrupted sleep, and addiction. The effects of caffeine may last up to 12 hours.

If you’re a regular consumer of caffeine, it’s important to be aware of both the potential benefits and harms of caffeine. If you find that caffeine is causing negative effects, such as anxiety or disrupted sleep, it may be helpful to reduce your consumption, or change the timing of that consumption. https://www.thewelltheory.com/what-does-caffeine-do-to-your-brain/

Q: What is a nootropic and why should I care?

A: Nootropics are a class of supplements, drugs, or other substances that can potentially enhance cognitive function , such as memory, attention, and motivation. Many natural and synthetic substances fall under this category. However, some nootropics have been shown to improve memory, attention, and creativity, making them an increasingly popular choice for those looking to boost their cognitive abilities. Managing brain fog is one of the primary reasons many turn to natural nootropics.

Your Essential Guide to Tart Cherry Extract with Meredith Warner, MD

A Powerhouse Supplement For Muscle Recovery & Inflammation Support

Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Meredith Warner, LOVES TART CHERRY! She developed these tart cherry supplements for those looking for natural pain relief without NSAIDs and recovery for overused muscles and joints.

Daily Recovery For Joints, Muscles & Inflammation.

  • Pain-Relieving: promote muscle health and recovery with daily supplementation
  • Antioxidant-Rich: increase antioxidant capacity and fight off free radicals
  • Inflammation-Reducing: block the same anti-inflammatory enzymes as over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Gout? Arthritis? Intense Workouts?: This is your go to supplement for relief and recovery
  • Support Exercise Performance: Helps promote healthy blood flow

Tart Cherries are packed with anthocyanins! Anthocyanins possess antioxidant properties and offer powerful support for promoting rapid muscle recovery. These are completely natural molecules found in some colorful fruits that provide amazing benefits for the human system.

“I learned about Tart Cherry a decade or more ago. Tart Cherry is an awesome basic anti-inflammatory and it reduces oxidative stress. Today, most of our chronic diseases in the Western world - Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Connective Tissue Disorders, Autoimmune Disorders, Pain, and Osteoarthritis - a lot of these are really caused by the lifetime accumulation of low-grade chronic inflammation and oxidative stress.”


I started waking up with swollen fingers on both hands. I could hardly bend my fingers. I don’t know what suddenly caused this. I read about the Tart Cherry Extract and decided to give it a try. I am no longer experiencing swelling in my fingers. I take one capsule in the morning after breakfast and one in the evening before bedtime. I’m a believer!

-Deb P.

I have extensive arthritis throughout my body- but especially bone on bone knee pain. I have been through the gamut of treatments the Dr’s can give me, with them calling for knee replacement. But since Taking the Tart Cherry the pain, knee giving out, and swelling have disappeared. I actually went off it for a few months just to see what would happen- and of course eventually all the disabling facets re-presented themselves, and once again disappeared once I began taking the Tart Cherry again. I will never be without it again! It makes all the difference in my mobility and quality of life. My disabling hand arthritis issues have disappeared as well.

-Jacqueline C.


I use both of these supplements for osteoarthritis in my hip which has become increasingly more painful and limiting my mobility. The pain was throughout my hip, groin, leg and foot making it difficult to walk very far or sleep. After 2 months of these products, the pain in my leg is gone and my mobility is better. I will stop my prescription anti-inflammatories and continue with these supplements.

-Sandy R.


I love it. It really helps my inflammation.
After 3 months. I went to my dr. Had my inflammation levels tested.
They were down to a good level. He was pleased. I’m sad But,I just can’t afford it on a regular basis. Great product.

-Jacqueline G.

Helping with inflammation in the lower legs. Helps keep Gout away. I love it for that reason.

-Debra C.


So far it has been good. Bought it mainly for help with inflammation; I have not had to take as many aspirin or painkillers since I started on it. The greater thing about it though is I’m sleeping so much better! Have stopped my melatonin completely and am getting a good night full of restful sleep!

-Catherine S.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Is Tart Cherry Like An NSAID?

A: Tart cherry extract acts on the COX2 enzymes, but it is not an NSAID. It acts like an NSAID, but does not have the same side effects as NSAID pain relievers. These natural medications work in a more gentle manner and without the large and aggressive single molecule effects of an NSAID.

An NSAID is a synthetic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory.

COX2, which tart cherry acts upon, is just an enzyme along the inflammatory pathway.

Q: How Much Can I Take Each Day?

A: There is no known upper limit for Tart Cherry. Dr. Warner recommends taking 1-2 capsules a day (1500-3000mg). It’s best to pay attention to how your body responds. As always, check with your physician if you have specific questions about your body.

Tart Cherry Being Poured Into Hand

Q: Can’t I Just Drink The Juice Or Eat The Cherries? Is there Really A Difference?

A: To consume about 80mg of anthocyanins (the plant compounds in tart cherries that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects) you would have to consume about 100-120 cherries. This is typically supplied by 16 to 24 ounces of a tart cherry juice blend, one ounce of liquid tart cherry juice concentrate, or 400 mg of tart cherry juice concentrate in tablets or capsules. To get the same amount of anthocyanin intake from a concentrated product, like our capsules, you only have to consume about 400mg of tart cherry extract. Drinking fruit juice exposes you to very high levels of concentrated fructose and this should be avoided.

Our Tart Cherry extract capsules contain 1500 mg of extract!

cherries and cherry juice

Q: How Does Tart Cherry Help With Gout?

A: Cherries and cherry juice relieve gout, which is caused by uric acid crystals in the joints; the same uric acid that may can cause kidney stones. Tart cherry juice is high in potassium, antioxidants and anthocyanins, chemicals that prevent uric acid from forming into crystals. The anthocyanins allow the mitochondria to function more efficiently and remove fructose from the bloodstream prior to its conversion to uric acid. The flavonoid also reduces the activity of xanthine oxidase, an enzyme in the pathway to create uric acid.

Q: Does Tart Cherry Really Help With Sleep?

A: Tart Cherries are a natural source of melatonin, a popular natural sleep aid. Our Tart Cherry Extract Supplement contains about 0.1mg of melatonin per serving.

Pain Relief & Recover Cream Jar with Dr. Meredith Warner

Dr. Meredith Warner’s Pain Relief + Recovery Cream was specially formulated to deliver fast, targeted results to painful joints and muscles. Relax and recover myofascial tissues and improve your range of motion with this unique combination of powerful ingredients. 

  • PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide)
  • Menthol Crystals
  • Turmeric
  • Rosehip Oil
  • Essential Oil Blend

This cream includes skin-nourishing ingredients like shea butter, aloe vera juice, hyaluronic acid, myristyl myristate, and witch hazel. 

“What all of these essential oils and PEA do is get you out of that hypercycle of constant self-attack, let things calm down, treat the pain and then let your body heal itself. At the end of the day, everything we do is just to help the body heal itself, which is of course my mission - to let the human body do what it was designed to do.”


This Product works

If my lower back is bothering me due to some arthritis and I’m having a hard time getting to sleep, I just rub some of this cream in and it really helps reduce the ache and allows me to fall asleep.

-Jenny J. 


Daily ritual

I absolutely love the pain relief and recovering cream. I started off using it every morning and now I have began using it every night as well. It provides much-needed relief! Although it is a small jar the cream surprisingly lasts.

-Sarah P.

Great product

I have tried so many creams. This is the only one that actually works!! Love it!

-Anonymous


Game Changer!

I’m very active with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and outdoor activities, so when I began to suffer from plantar fasciitis, it was crippling to say the least.  I was lucky to find and try The Healing Sole sandal which I found to be great in relieving the pain. However, it was not until I combined it with the pain relieve cream that my recovery skyrocketed. Getting out of bed and taking those first very painful steps are no longer an issue. I have my life back. I owe it all to the pain cream and sandal. I’m always recommending the pain cream to my friends who suffer any joint, ligament, and muscle pain and stand by this produce and that it works!!

-Sonny S.


Awesome pain reliever !

I have used this cream for osteoarthritis of the knees and back pain. It is awesome. It provides great relief . I also put the jar in the refrigerator and applying it cold provides further comfort. I never allow myself to be without this product.

-Edith D. 

Pain Relief Cream Extra Strength brings relief

I use the Extra Strength Pain Relief Cream on the tops of my feet after I get home from work. I’m a teacher and am on my feet all day. I wear custom orthotics, compression socks, and good athletic shoes. Even the tops of my feet hurt by the time I get home. I rub the cream in and sit with my feet up for about ten minutes to let it soak in and has helped every time I’ve used it!

-Deborah T. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: What Is PEA?

A: Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a natural and powerful way to manage pain, inflammation, and damage from oxidative stress. PEA is made in a similar way in humans and in plants, and it can be isolated from peanuts, soy, egg yolks, and other food sources. It’s also made within your body to naturally regulate pain and inflammation. PEA is considered part of the endocannabinoid system.  

It calms pain and sensitivity when massaged into the affected area. Its anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving properties encourage fast-acting, natural recovery from muscle, joint, and ligament pain.

Pain Relief & Recover Cream Jar Open & In Hand

Q: How long does one jar last? 

A: Each jar contains 1 oz of product. We recommend applying a pea-sized amount of the cream once or twice a day to relieve your symptoms. On average, our customers who use a typical amount of cream a day can expect it to last about a month. Of course, this depends on the amount you apply during each application, how many times a day you apply it, etc.

Pain Relief & Recover Cream Jar Open & On Hand

Q: Does the cream have a scent?

A: Yes, the Menthol and essential oils we include in our Pain Relief Cream formula do have a scent. We included these ingredients for several reasons. 

Menthol cools on contact to alleviate sensitivity and reduce joint and muscle pain. It also works to hydrate and calm skin irritation, while lessening the appearance of dark spots.

Our blend of essential oils includes Peppermint, Frankincense, Bergamot, and Wintergreen. These oils relieve pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, and skin irritation, and they also offer aroma-therapeutic properties. 

Q: Will this cream dry my skin? 

A: Dr. Meredith Warner incorporated skin-nourishing ingredients in the Pain Relief + Recovery Cream, so you’re benefiting your skin while reducing joint and muscle pain! Shea butter, Aloe Vera Juice, Hyaluronic Acid, Myristyl Myristate, and Witch Hazel help to hydrate and soften your skin, while reducing irritation.

The Turmeric included can also reduce surface-level scarring, while Rosehip Oil hydrates the skin, lightens scars, and provides antioxidant protection. This cream benefits your health from the inside and out!

Pain Relief & Recover Cream Applied to Foot

Q: How often can the Pain Relief + Recovery Cream be used?

A: Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream is very safe to use! It can be used daily, whenever you find it necessary to reduce inflammation or pain. Dr. Warner may use it several times on a surgery day – so feel free to use this topical pain reliever as needed. Other over-the-counter pain-relief creams don’t have the same entourage effect that these unique ingredients provide.

So, apply this cream with confidence, knowing that it’s formulated and used by Dr. Meredith Warner. We of course, always recommend consulting with your treating physician prior to adding any new supplements or topical creams to your routine.

IT WORKS!

I bought this for my husband to try. In December 2021 he finally went to the doctor to find out what was causing extreme pain and swelling in his fingers and wrists. Advanced osteoarthritis was the diagnosis. Prescription Celebrex and turmeric were suggested, but not very effective. I saw the ad for the special blend of turmeric in this product and ordered it. After one month, the pain and swelling has significantly reduced! Thank you!

Keeps Me Playing Pickleball

I’ve only been using Turmeric w/ PEA for about 4 months. But, I feel it is already helping with my knee pain. I’m 68 years old and I play 4.0 pickleball tournaments. I feel Turmeric w/PEA is helping me stay on the court!

-Dee K


Very Helpful

I have been able to tell the difference in less aches and less difficulty getting up and down from a chair.

-Marilynda L


First timer – it Works Great

Never tried any turmeric product before. The reviews made me want to try. I had been suffering from sciatic nerve pain for 2 years and it was getting worse. I did not want to use ibuprofen for what I thought was a long term problem, so I tried your joint therapy with the tumeric and ginger. The pain diminished within an hour and steadily decreased with everyday use and now 3 months later it is gone. I am continuing with it to avoid a return of my symptoms.

-Landa C


Now I am sure….

When I did my first review, I said I wasn’t sure if the product was effective because I hadn’t been on it very long and didn’t want to stop taking it to see. Now I am sure – it is a GREAT product! I got lax, then forgetful about taking it and it wasn’t very long, and I was in more pain than I had been when I took them regularly. The restful sleep I was getting was gone and I had more pain and mobility issues during the day. Won’t let that happen again!.

-Darlene M


Joint Health

Excellent. I suffer from liver and kidney disease so I can’t use standard pain meds for my severe osteoarthritis. After seeing your reviews I decided to try the ginger and turmeric joint health. Along with the CBD multivitamins you sent with my order, my OA symptoms have greatly improved. I shared my experience using your product with my kidney doctor and he has suggested that other patients use it too. Thank you for developing these great supplements. I was a Hospice nurse for 35 years and wish I had access to your products for my patients. I believe many disease processes and various types of pain could be managed with your products without the side effects of narcotics.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: What Is The Daily Recommended Amount of Turmeric?

A: Most research suggests that daily doses of 500-2000 mg are effective. Dr. Warner chose a daily dosage of 1000mg as a moderate dosage for long-term use. This dosage is most compatible with most people due to turmeric’s tendency to cause stomach upset. This is why our formula also includes piperine to increase turmeric absorption and ginger to mitigate stomach upset and heartburn.  We recommend taking the Joint Health Multi with some sort of fat (milk, egg, yogurt). 

Q: Does Turmeric Cause Stomach Upset?

A: It is possible! Dr. Warner recommends taking the Joint Health Multi with a meal! Taking medicines, supplements, and multivitamins with meals helps reduce the possibility of stomach irritation that can lead to indigestion.

Curcumin is a fat-soluble substance found in turmeric. If you just take it with water, you probably are not absorbing the full dosage intended.

Taking our Joint Health Multi with a full meal that includes some form of fat will help your body absorb the turmeric and curcumin more efficiently. Whole or reduced-fat milk or yogurt are great items to provide such fats in your meal!

Q: Does The Joint Health Multi Help With Arthritis Joint Pain?

A: This multi contains turmeric, piperine to help bioavailability, ginger, and PEA for a powerful anti-inflammatory boost. Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a natural and powerful way to manage pain, inflammation, and damage from oxidative stress. PEA is made in a similar way in humans and in plants, and it can be isolated from peanuts, soy, egg yolks, and other food sources. It’s also made within your body to naturally regulate pain and inflammation.  Most people simply lack enough PEA to control inflammatory pain.

Q: Does It Fix Bone-On-Bone Arthritis?

A: For bone-on-bone arthritis, the ingredients in our Joint Health Multi will not regrow cartilage – your best option for that would be adult stem cell therapy, PRP injections, and other regenerative medicines.  That said, the pain from being ‘bone on bone’ can absolutely be managed with methods like natural supplements.  If the pain is managed, the clinical entity of ‘bone on bone’ becomes much less relevant.  

Additionally, we would suggest our article about bone on bone health, where we’ve included a video from Dr. Warner addressing surgery concerns.

Our product helps reduce inflammation and pain in and around the joints, and may slow the loss of cartilage by doing so – but only regenerative medicine, or transplants,  can repair lost cartilage. We would recommend seeking a second opinion if you are concerned about having surgery, and work with a physician to explore your best options for restoring function in your joint. Our products can work alongside these measures to holistically reduce pain and improve range of motion! 

Q: Does Turmeric Affect Kidney Function?

A: Curcumin/turmeric is generally safe to consume and would not cause any damage to the kidneys. However, for a person who is prone to develop kidney stones, eating a lot of turmeric may increase the chances of developing kidney stones.  But isolated curcuminoids do not have the same effect for kidney stones.  

The reason for this being the high amount of oxalate present in turmeric. The oxalates are soluble in nature which means that they bind with calcium which results in the development of an insoluble form of calcium oxalate which deposits to form stones in the kidney.  Generally, there is little or no oxalate in a curcuminoid extract. Our Joint Health Multi is a 95% curcuminoid extract.  

People who already have kidney stones or are susceptible to developing kidney stones are recommended to keep their turmeric intake to the utmost minimum.  That means eating less curry, but taking an extract with simply the active ingredient should be OK.

Q: Is Turmeric Okay If I Have Liver Problems?

A: In certain doses, these supplements containing turmeric or curcumin (the primary active ingredient in turmeric) may be beneficial for liver detox and improved function. In cases of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, curcumin supplementation has been shown to reduce liver fat content. There aren’t any consistent cases displaying liver damage as a result of appropriate turmeric supplementation. 

Turmeric supplementation is rarely cause for concern. These rare cases of turmeric supplementation associated with liver damage or other concerns, are the result of extremely high doses of turmeric, over long periods of time. This is simply not the case with our Joint Health Multi, which falls within a safe range for daily use (take as suggested). A beneficial amount of turmeric lands between 500-2,000 mg per day.  Tolerable doses have been documented as high as 12 grams per day for 3 months.  Our Joint Health Multi contains 1,000mg of turmeric per daily serving. Actually, our Multi is 95% curcumin, which is the active ingredient of the turmeric root.  Even so, it was formulated with safety in mind.

Curcumin inhibits nuclear factor-kappa-beta (a pro-inflammatory modulator).  Curcumin is also a potent antioxidant.  Curcumin is thought to actually attenuate the liver damage associated with toxins, iron overdose, gallstones, etc.  Curcumin has been studied many times with regard to how beneficial it is for liver cancer, liver damage, heavy metal liver damage, etc.  As always, if you have liver damage, you should speak with your treating physician prior to taking any supplements to augment your current treatment plan.  We are happy to note more and more work is being done in the basic science of how curcumin helps the liver.

What Causes Muscle Cramps?

What Causes Muscle Cramps?

Easy + Natural Ways To Reduce Spider Veins

If you’ve experienced a muscle cramp before, you know it can be painful and disruptive. Often, muscle cramps can make it feel impossible to move or function.  

So, what causes muscle cramps and can we prevent them? 

What Causes Muscle Cramps?

Muscle cramps are an involuntary, often sudden muscle contraction. They typically occur in the legs, and sometimes the contraction can even be visible or felt as a lump under the skin.

Muscle cramps, sometimes referred to as a charley horse, typically go away on their own and aren’t serious cause for concern. However, they can be a cause for concern if they occur frequently, don’t get better with self-care, or cause muscle weakness.

Typically, muscle cramps are caused by overexertion, strain, or dehydration. They can also be common during pregnancy or as you age, due to a decrease in muscle mass.   

Those who exercise regularly may experience muscle cramps, especially when outside in the heat, or when they haven’t had a sufficient amount of water. 

They can also be caused by underlying conditions like poor blood flow, nerve compression or a mineral deficiency.

Man Post Workout

If your arteries narrow while you’re exercising, this can reduce the blood supply to the muscles in your legs, putting you at greater risk for a cramp. Hypothyroidism is associated with cramping.  Low levels of electrolytes are also a cause of muscle cramping.  Some medications and alcohol can also lead to muscle cramping.  Many cramps occur at night and these are called sleep-related leg cramps.  These generally affect the foot and calf muscles and they are benign.   

When it comes to mineral deficiency causing cramps, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting plenty of potassium, magnesium and calcium. Certain medications, like diuretics can make it more difficult for you to maintain these nutrients. If you’re experiencing muscle cramps, we’d recommend consulting with your physician, and asking them to test for mineral deficiencies.  This is especially true if the cramping is associated with weakness. 

Reduce Your Risk For Muscle Cramps

You can reduce your risk for muscle cramps by staying hydrated, stretching after exercise, and ensuring you have enough essential minerals to support your needs. 

Well Theory’s Essential Joint & Tissue Support is a daily multivitamin that supplies you with magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, vitamin C and PEA. The vitamins and minerals in this multi help you establish a healthy foundation, while the PEA can alleviate inflammation and pain. 

Tart Cherry Extract is another Well Theory supplement that helps with inflammation and muscle recovery. It promotes a healthy blood flow, while providing antioxidants that neutralize free radicals.

How CoQ10 Can Promote A Healthy Lifestyle And Optimal Aging

At Well Theory, we believe in living a full and active life, for as long as possible. That’s why we’re here to address small steps you can take to help achieve this goal. 

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an essential part of all living cells and their biological processes. It sounds like a scary chemical, but is actually in nearly every cell in your body naturally.  But what is it exactly, and how does it help? 

What Is NAD+?

NAD+ is a coenzyme that’s involved in many of your metabolic processes, making it vital to energy production and cell health. It can be found throughout the body, especially within the mitochondria, cytoplasm and nucleus of cells. It’s essential for two major functions for our bodies:

  • Converting food into energy
  • Regulating cell functions

Within the body, NAD+ helps two protein groups referred to as PARPs and Sirtuins. These proteins need NAD+ to function appropriately. Sirtuins specifically help regulate cellular homeostasis, making it vital for healthy cellular function and longevity. PARP plays a critical role in the DNA repair pathway.

As vital as NAD+ is for the body, it naturally decreases as we age.

This is why it’s important that we find ways to increase our levels of NAD+. This will allow us to maintain a greater cellular function, preventing a decline in health throughout the body.

Supplementing For NAD+

You can increase your levels of NAD+ by supplementing with a precursor molecule to NAD+, like nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN). 

Supplementing with NMN has been shown to improve mitochondrial function, preventing cell damage and death. 

It’s also been shown to reduce age-related conditions by suppressing gene expression changes, increasing energy generation, insulin sensitivity, and lipid metabolism.  NMN has also been shown to be helpful for improving eye function, immunity, and bone density.

Supplementing with NMN has also been associated with a decreased risk for neurodegeneration and metabolic diseases, while improving the overall health span.

These are some of the reasons that Dr. Meredith Warner wanted to include NMN in Well Theory’s Longevity Series. Alongside Berberine and Resveratrol, NMN can improve cellular health and possibly slow down or reverse aging at the cellular level.

Easy Exercises For Arthritis Pain

Easy Exercises For Arthritis Pain

Female Yoga Meditation

If you experience arthritis pain, then even the thought of exercise may seem impossible. However, it’s a vital aspect to living actively, improving joint health and reducing pain. 


Studies show that those with arthritis actually experience less pain when they implement exercise into their routine.  This may seem counterintuitive to you and your doctor may even be telling you to avoid exercise.  Allow us to plug the benefits of exercise for you. 

Ways Exercise Helps Your Joints

Exercise helps your joints in a number of ways, likely without causing your condition to worsen. There is a common misconception that you’ll irritate joint pain through activity. However, it’s actually a lack of exercise that  (more commonly) can exacerbate arthritis, making your joints stiff and painful. 

When you exercise consistently you can:

  • Improve muscle strength around joints
  • Maintain bone strength
  • Improve balance to prevent falling
  • Increase your energy levels
  • Get deeper, restorative sleep
  • Maintain your weight to prevent excess strain on joints
  • Maintain your weight to reduce inflammatory cytokines that damage joints
How Exercise Can Relieve Brain Fog

When you strengthen the muscles around your bones and joints, you’re actually relieving some of the strain placed on them throughout the day, helping to reduce pain.  

Exercises For Arthritis Pain

If it’s been a while since you’ve exercised, you’ll want to ease into your routine to avoid injury. Before you start exercising, you can apply heat with warm towels for about 20 minutes to warm up your joints and relieve pain so you’re better prepared to start. 

We’d also suggest taking gentle and slow movements to avoid injury. Let yourself warm up for about five to ten minutes before moving onto the main portion of your exercise, whether it’s strength training or aerobic in nature. 

You’ll also want to stick to low-impact exercises to reduce the amount of stress placed on your joints.

Range-of-motion exercises can help you improve joint movement and flexibility by taking them through the full range of motion. Some examples of this include, extending your arms over your head and rolling your shoulders either forward or backward. These can be helpful when reducing stiffness and even used to help warm up the joints.

Low-impact aerobic exercises are a great way to improve joint health, cardiovascular health and maintain your weight. Some low-impact aerobic exercises include swimming, walking, and bicycling. Exercising for about 150 minutes a week is ideal for maintaining your health. 

The Mental Benefits Of Regular Exercise

We know that 150 minutes can sound like a lot, but when broken up across five days it’s only about 30 minutes a day. When you’re first starting out, you can even break this time down further. Walking for 10 minutes after each meal is a great place to start when you’re building up to an exercise routine.

Strength training is also important for what we noted earlier about building strength in the muscles that surround your joints. You’ll want to take it slow to start, while you learn proper techniques and your body gets used to your new routine.

Group of People Exercising

As with any exercise, it’s important to rest properly between workouts. You don’t want to overwork parts of your body without giving yourself time to recuperate. 

For exercise that improves balance and flexibility, you might also be interested in yoga. Yoga can promote balance, flexibility, core strength, relaxation and mindfulness. It’s also low impact and can be done at varying skill levels. We do recommend visiting a yoga studio and practicing with a yogi who can teach you safe and proper techniques for different poses. 

Reducing arthritis pain and inflammation can be a lot of work, and you might be used to taking anti-inflammatories to reduce pain. However, NSAIDs can produce painful side effects, especially in the long-term.

At Well Theory, we have several supplements that can reduce inflammation and joint pain. Our Arthritis Bundle features two of our most popular supplements, Tart Cherry Extract and our Joint Health Multi.

Tart Cherry Extract is an antioxidant supplement that works in the same way as NSAIDs to reduce inflammation, but in a more gentle manner. Our Joint Health Multi is a unique combination of turmeric, ginger, piperine, and PEA. When taken together, these supplements work synergistically to reduce arthritis associated pain.

Know The Risks: Risk Factors Of Gout Attacks

Know The Risks: Risk Factors Of Gout Attacks

Senior Holding Foot in Pain

Do you suffer from gout? Does it feel like flare-ups can appear suddenly or out of nowhere? 

We understand that this can be frustrating, so we want to explain some risk factors associated with gout and high uric acid levels.

What Is Gout?

Gout symptoms typically appear at night and can include intense joint pain, a limited range of motion, redness and tenderness, as well as persisting discomfort. 

Gout flare ups are usually more painful within the first twelve hours and commonly affect the big toe. However, they can impact other parts of the body as well. This includes your fingers, wrists, ankles, knees and elbows.

Gout attacks are caused by high levels of uric acid in the blood, which lead to urate crystals that accumulate within your joints.

Uric acid is produced by the body as a result of breaking down purines. Purines are found naturally within the body, but also in certain foods. Typically, your body is able to break down uric acid through the kidneys, however sometimes it’s not able to. This causes the urate crystals to form around joints.

Runner with Foot Pain

Another less well-known, but perhaps more important and common, source of uric acid overload is from fructose consumption.  The metabolism of fructose leads directly to uric acid.  There are a complex series of fast reactions that happen with fructose metabolism that result in increased purine degradation.  This then leads to the increased uric acid levels. 

Risk Factors For Gout

It’s important to know what causes this build up of uric acid in order to avoid gout attacks. Risk factors include:

  • Your age and sex play a role in your risk for developing gout. Women typically tend to have lower levels of uric acid until later in life. Men on the other hand, are more susceptible to developing gout earlier in life. If a woman develops gout, it’s more common after menopause. 
  • Obesity can also lead to gout, because it’s more difficult for your body to eliminate the higher levels of uric acid associated with excess weight.   Likewise, obesity is associated with higher intake levels of fructose. 
Healthy Diet
  • In the same vein, your diet also plays a key factor in mitigating gout attacks. You’ll want to avoid foods that contain a lot of purines like red meats, certain seafoods, alcohol and sugary foods. Fructose should be avoided as well. Dr. Warner recommends the Mediterranean Diet to most of her patients for its anti-inflammatory benefits, which can be helpful in the case of gout as well. It steers clear of processed foods, and instead focuses on whole foods and meals enjoyed socially.  Limiting the animal protein levels even in this diet may be required.
  • If you have untreated medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease or heart disease, you’re also at greater risk for gout. You’ll want to establish a treatment plan with your primary physician and make positive changes toward healing in order to reduce gout flare-ups. 
  • When working with your physician to treat these conditions. You’ll want to avoid certain medications as well. This includes low-dose aspirin, anti-rejection drugs for organ transplant, and some medications to control hypertension.  Please check with your physician.  
  • Surgery or trauma can also trigger gout attacks in some cases. 
Tart Cherry Extract Supplement for Connective Tissue & Anti-Inflammatory: Jar

Tart Cherry Extract can help you reduce the painful symptoms associated with gout. The anthocyanin antioxidants in tart cherries can help balance uric acid levels. Tart Cherries are also able to reduce inflammation in a similar way to NSAIDs in a more gentle manner.

Can You Reverse The Signs Of Aging In Your Joints?

Can You Reverse The Signs Of Aging In Your Joints?

Couple Cuddling Together

We understand that poor joint and bone health can have painful consequences. You may worry about your future activity and comfort levels. 

Thankfully, there are ways you can improve the status of your joints and bones through consistent lifestyle choices.

Tips To Improve Joint & Bone Health

Resistance Training is one way to improve joint and bone health. Weight-bearing exercise on the bones can increase their strength over time. Exercise can also lubricate the joints while reducing inflammation and pain. It’s important to practice safe exercise habits to prevent possible injury. That’s why working with a professional, like a physical therapist, can help you establish a workout routine that’s beneficial and safe for your bones.

Stretching helps lubricate the joints, therefore reducing pain and improving joint flexibility. Stretching should also be incorporated in your exercise routine to prevent injury. 

Pair of Runners Stretching & Warming Up

Yoga is a great option for stretching and contributing to your overall health. We recommend visiting a studio where you can learn various poses and routines from a yogi. One review not only saw a reduction in pain for those with arthritis, but an improvement in mental health as well.

Calcium is a common nutrient associated with bone strength, but for good reason. As you get older, the amount of calcium in your bones may be insufficient to maintain their strength. Calcium supplements can help reverse signs of aging in your bones by improving bone density and contributing to heart, muscle and nerve health. Taking Vitamin K can help the efficacy of calcium by helping it bind to your bone mineral matrix. This helps improve bone density and reduce the risk of fractures and osteoporosis.   Vitamin K has the added benefit of helping to control atherosclerosis.

Reducing Inflammation is an essential part of joint health and pain relief. You can reduce inflammation by maintaining a healthy diet that avoids sugars and processed foods. 

Olive Oil

Dr. Meredith Warner recommends the Mediterranean Diet to most of her patients for this reason. It focuses on nutrient-dense, whole foods like fruit, vegetables, legumes, fish or seafood, nuts and healthy fats like extra-virgin olive oil.

You may lean toward NSAIDs when you’re experiencing pain, but we’d like to show you that there are natural ways to reduce inflammation without the negative side effects that NSAIDs are well-known to cause.

Natural Supplements To Reduce Joint Pain

Omega-3 Dietary Supplement for Joint, Brain, & Mood Health

Omega-3 is an anti-inflammatory that also promotes brain and mood health. It can help reduce the stiffness and swelling in your joints.  This is a powerful tool that we believe you should use to reduce pain and improve a sense of flexibility.

Joint Health Multi: Turmeric, Ginger and PEA

Our Joint Health Multi features turmeric, ginger, piperine and PEA for powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s a unique combination that provides natural pain relief alongside antioxidants that encourage cell health.

Tart Cherry Extract Supplement for Connective Tissue & Anti-Inflammatory: Jar

Tart Cherry Extract is another antioxidant supplement that reduces pain and inflammation. Its anti-inflammatory benefits rival that of NSAIDs, working in a more gentle manner. It also promotes muscle recovery, so if you’re implementing a new resistance training routine, this supplement can benefit you in both ways.
