Feeling rejuvenated with increased mobility and flexibility
In this new newsletter, we have chosen to address the topic of stiffness with you, as our recent survey has shown very significant improvement figures for Atremoplus users.
Stiffness is a phenomenon characterized by a significant loss of flexibility, which can even lead to a stooped posture and an early sensation of wear and aging. Stiffness is also a major characteristic of Parkinson’s disease. Experiencing significant stiffness makes daily life difficult for once simple tasks.
Therefore, we are delighted to share with you the results of our recent survey on stiffness improvement among participants, with the numbers speaking for themselves.
Firstly, it is interesting to note that 57% of individuals reported being significantly affected by notable severe stiffness before taking Atremoplus.
The good news is that following the intake of Atremoplus, this category of individuals most affected by severe and notable stiffness saw a decrease of 41.5%, now only affecting 15.5% of users!
Furthermore, only 7% of survey participants reported no improvement in terms of stiffness.
So evidently, the active principles of the Vicia faba plant, based on our dietary supplement, have a strong impact on the stiffness phenomenon.
It is worth noting that some users only take 5 g/day of Atremoplus, which is 2 well-filled scoops, the minimum recommended daily dose.
However, we regularly receive testimonials from individuals who, after increasing their dose to 10 g per day (4 scoops), felt a further noticeable difference, visibly improving their flexibility and mobility.
In this newsletter, we will further explore this stiffness phenomenon.
Where does stiffness manifest in the body?
In Parkinson’s disease, stiffness can manifest in different parts of the body.
The most commonly affected areas are the arms and legs, where muscle stiffness can be particularly pronounced. However, stiffness can also affect other parts of the body, including the trunk, neck, and even facial muscles, giving the impression that the person is wearing a mask with a closed, or even depressed, expression. Even smiling requires effort.
This stiffness can result in a total or partial loss of movement specific to a joint, called ankylosis, or a sensation of muscle tension, making movements more difficult and less fluid.
It is interesting to note that stiffness is often more pronounced on one side of the body.
What are the consequences of this stiffness for people with Parkinson’s?
Stiffness leads to a series of related problems, the main ones being:
- Difficulty moving freely: Muscle stiffness makes movements more difficult and less fluid. Daily activities such as getting up from a chair, turning, eating, walking, getting into a car, or getting dressed can become major challenges.
- Muscle fatigue: Constant tension in the muscles can lead to increased muscle fatigue, making physical activities more exhausting.
- Pain: Muscle stiffness can be painful, especially when associated with cramps or prolonged muscle contractions.
- Reduced range of motion: Stiffness limits the range of motion, making gestures smaller and less precise.
- Difficulty maintaining an upright posture: Stiffness can lead to a stooped or inclined posture, which can cause back pain and posture problems.
- Speech problems: Muscle stiffness can affect the muscles of the throat and mouth, which can lead to difficulties in pronunciation and swallowing.
- Reduced flexibility: Stiffness limits the flexibility of muscles and joints, which can lead to decreased mobility and agility.
- Balance impairment: Muscle stiffness can disrupt balance and coordination, increasing the risk of falls and injuries.
Emotionally, frustration and loss of self-confidence can result from struggling with this persistent stiffness.
These problems can have a significant impact on the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s, and we are pleased that the situation has been significantly improved by Atremoplus users.
Why do people become stiffer?
In reality, science has not yet fully elucidated the precise mechanisms underlying this stiffness.
From a mechanical point of view, stiffness is often caused by dysfunction of the dopaminergic system in the brain, which regulates movements and coordination. A dopamine deficiency disrupts signals sent to the muscles, resulting in increased muscle tone, causing stiffness and difficulty in performing smooth movements.
Although the exact mechanisms are not yet fully understood, we are already excited about the mobility improvements reported by Atremoplus users.
There is growing scientific evidence that noradrenaline also plays a role in movement coordination and dyskinesias. Therefore, noradrenaline levels are worth observing regarding stiffness.
What can be done against stiffness?
Below, you can find some tips to maintain and improve your flexibility:
- Physical therapy: Physical therapy can help improve muscle flexibility, strength, and balance, which can reduce muscle stiffness and improve mobility.
- Stretching exercises: Regular stretching exercises can help maintain muscle flexibility and reduce stiffness.
- Therapeutic massage: Massages can help relax tense muscles and reduce muscle stiffness.
- Heat: Applying heat in the form of heating pads, hot baths, or warm compresses can help relax muscles and reduce stiffness.
- Yoga, tai chi, and deep breathing: These disciplines can help improve flexibility, balance, and coordination, which can contribute to reducing muscle stiffness. Deep breathing can promote muscle relaxation and reduce stiffness.
- Adequate hydration: Drinking enough water can help prevent dehydration, which can contribute to reducing muscle stiffness.
- Stress management: Stress can worsen muscle stiffness, so it is important to practice stress management techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, or yoga to help relax muscles.
- Adequate rest: Adequate rest is essential to allow muscles to recover and relax, which can contribute to reducing muscle stiffness. A good mattress with support points can be a valuable aid in this regard.
What underlying mechanisms could explain the significant flexibility improvement scores of Atremoplus users?
As we do not know the exact mechanisms of stiffness, we cannot provide a complete answer to this question. However, several interesting clues could contribute to explaining the significant improvement observed in individuals who participated in our survey.
- Firstly, it is important to mention the efficient metabolism of natural L-Dopa and its transport to the brain areas where it is needed, thanks in particular to components that inhibit the rapid conversion of L-Dopa into dopamine, such as carbidopa and polyphenols. (see our newsletter below for the link)
- Furthermore, the natural components present in AtremoPlus could influence brain plasticity factors and growth factors (BDNF), thus playing a crucial role in improving mobility. (see our newsletter on this subject below for the link)
- The aspect of natural epigenetics, with enhanced methylation, could favor the production of higher-quality proteins, thus improving gene expression and structure. (see our newsletter on this subject below for the link)
- Active principles such as flavonoids or vitamin E, known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, should not be overlooked in explaining the sensations of increased mobility in AtremoPlus users.
- AtremoPlus active ingredients significantly increase noradrenaline levels, which could also explain an improvement in mobility.
- Finally, our survey also highlighted an improvement in sleep quality and a decrease in pain, promoting better cell regeneration, increased mobility, and flexibility. (see our newsletters on this subject below for the link)
In conclusion, we are pleased to share some testimonials from individuals who have been taking AtremoPlus for several months or years, perhaps you will recognize yourself?
“The feeling of being trapped in my own body has faded away.”
“When I go shopping, I realize that my movements are smoother, I look more natural.”
“Getting out of bed is no longer a chore, I stand up without difficulty.”
“I feel more agile climbing my stairs.”
“I get into my car much more easily because I can bend and stoop more.”
“I feel more mobile and energetic than I had lost, it puts me in a good mood for the day!”
