Arthri-D is a natural supplement that is advertised by the Arthri-D people as a product to provide arthritis and joint pain relief. When you point your browser to the Arthri-D sponsored website there are several claim stating what the product is supposed to do but what does it actually do? The is not enough information at this point, to support claims that Arthri-D can meet it’s claims.

Arthri-D Review is looking for information pro and con about the product.

Arthritis (from Greek arthro-, joint + -itis, inflammation; plural: arthritides) is a group of conditions involving damage to the joints of the body.

There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form, osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease) is a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection.

The major complaint by individuals who have arthritis is joint pain. Pain is often a constant and may be localized to the joint affected. The pain from arthritis occurs due to inflammation that occurs around the joint, damage to the joint from disease, daily wear and tear of joint, muscle strains caused by forceful movements against stiff, painful joints and fatigue.

Arthri-D claims it helps to regulate and control the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus. It also claims that Arthri-d aids in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the small intestine. The Arthri-D website makes the claim that it affects the rate at which these minerals form and maintain bone. The Product Description says Vitamin D helps regulate and control the metabolism of Calcium and Phosphorus by aiding in the absorption of these two minerals. The ingredients listed in Arthri-D are:
Vitamins C and D, NAG, Evening Primrose Oil, Magnesium, Yucca, Turmeric, Rice Flour, Boswella Serrata, Ashwagandha, Bromelain, Chondroitin, Green Lipped Muscle and Hyaluronic Acid

Under the direction of conductor Thomas Wilkins, musical highlights include Rossini’s Overture to Semiramide, Alard’s La Traviata (Fantasy for Violin and Piano, op. 38), and Verdi’s “Caro nome” from Rigoletto. Following a typical program of this orchestra and its contemporaries, a dramatic reading will also be presented—Victor Séjour’s “La Retour de Napoléon (The Return of Napoleon).”

 Good Morning Nola!  It’s a busy day for me.  Lots to do today. It’s cold this morning but it is only partly cloudy.  You will need jackets and coats first thing but for you hot blooded people you will probably be carrying them by lunch time. It will be a gradual warming up today with highs in the upper fifties. We just might edge over but I don’t think we will see sixty degrees.  Lows for this evening will drop back into the forties with a ten percent chance of rain.  More sun expected for tomorrow and I can’t wait. I will be outside and much prefer a sunny day to the cold and damp days we’ve seen lately. We need to enjoy the next couple of days.  Take care of your outside activities before the rain turns up again on Sunday.  Have a great Thursday and I’ll see you in NOLA!

New Orleans Saints Offseason Update Quarterbacks

New Orleans Saints Offseason Update Quarterbacks

There is no one who thinks Drew Brees is not currently ranked in the top tier of quarterbacks in the NFL. This post is not questioning whether or not Drew Brees should be the starting quarterback for the New Orleans Saints next year. The question that should be asked is who should be the quarterback of the future and the current backup quarterback for the New Orleans Saints.

Is Chase Daniel the quarterback of the future for the New Orleans Saints? This is a question that needs to be asked. Drew Brees has done a fantastic job for the New Orleans Saints. Still he is not immortal. There will be some point when Drew Brees will retire or become injured and will not be able to play for a period. So can Chase Daniel step in and fill Drew Brees shoes as the quarterback for the New Orleans Saints even for a little while. There is not enough evidence to give a quality answer. Daniel played the position for the New Orleans Saints in the preseason. His rating was 89.7 which is not bad unless you take into account he was probably playing against second and third stringers.

So if I’m the New Orleans Saints I would look for a little insurance and I should be prepared if a quality quarterback falls into my draft pick.

The draft this year has several quarterbacks who would be mid round selections. There will also be some who will fall through the draft into free agency. The means that the New Orleans Saints can wait until after they take care of more pressing needs before they look at the available quarterbacks. This is not a pressing need but more of a long term need, that if quality falls in your lap you have to be prepared.

Next we will take a look at the wide receiver position for the New Orleans Saints.

Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees

The Magic Kingdom Philharmonic Band came marching down Main Street, U.S.A., this morning behind New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. He was riding in a pewter convertible with Mickey Mouse, waving to cheering fans. But he earned the ride and the adulation Sunday night by marching the Saints to a 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami. The New Orleans Saints won their first Super Bowl in 2010. They had never made it to the final game of the NFL season in their history.

Drew Brees has been selected to the Pro Bowl five times in his career – with the Chargers in 2004 and the Saints in 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010. Drew Brees was named the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year in 2004, the Offensive Player of the Year in 2008, and the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV. Drew Brees was also selected by voters to appear on the cover of Electronic Arts’ Madden NFL 11. Sports Illustrated named Drew Brees as its 2010 Sportsman of the Year.

Drew Brees joined the New Orleans Saints after the Chargers refused to increase their offer, Drew Brees met with other teams. The New Orleans Saints and the Miami Dolphins were interested. New Orleans made an offer that included $10 million in guaranteed money the first year and a $12 million option the second year. Miami was unsure if Drew Brees’ shoulder was completely healed and did not offer the money Drew Brees was seeking. The Dolphins ended negotiations and traded for Minnesota Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper instead. Drew Brees signed a 6-year, $60 million deal with the Saints on March 14, 2006.

Drew Brees has embraced the city of New Orleans and the city has embraced Drew Brees. This is a love affair that could last for several years.

Drew Brees was voted the MVP in his first Super Bowl.

The high is sixy four, so another damp day in store. The good news is the forecast for tomorrow shows a beautiful sunny day with only a chance of isolated showers for Thursday.  The weekend looks good and will be here quick with this short work week for some of you.  Enjoy your day and I’ll see you in NOLA!

New Orleans Saints Offseason Update Running Backs

During the next days and weeks I’m going to look at the New Orleans Saints team as a whole and what I think the status of each position is and what direction I think the team should take. I’m going to start with the running backs position for the New Orleans Saints.

The big question is Reggie Bush, and will he stay. That is a question that got some clarity added to it this week. Reggie Bush made it clear this week that he is willing to restructure his 2011 contract with the New Orleans Saints. Since Reggie Bush is scheduled to make $11.8 million as a base salary in 2011 that is a good thing for Reggie Bush and the New Orleans Saints.  Here are Reggie Bush’s stats with the New Orleans Saints

Reggie Bush has not had played a full season for the New Orleans Saints since 2006.

This does not say a lot for his durability. Reggie Bush is a great asset as a decoy, a receiver out of the backfield and a return man for the New Orleans Saints. That however does not mean he is worth an $11.8 million hit. Reggie Bush said ”I’m open to whatever is going to help me stay here.”  This means that Reggie Bush realizes he is not going to get that type of money anywhere else. He is not a durable back and will not fit into every system out there. Still if you watch when he is on the field, he usually occupies two defenders when he moves to the slot as a receiver. This opens up opportunities for Drew Brees in the passing game. But is Reggie Bush our best option to continue at running back? That depends on who much he costs. In my opinion he should be paid like other specialists. The other thing is he is not our only running back. Let’s take a look at Pierre Thomas.

Pierre Thomas had a difficult season with the New Orleans Saints in 2010. He hurt his ankle in week 3. In hindsight he probably should have sat and rested until the playoffs. As always hindsight is 20/20. The rumors of trade talks never materialized. Thomas stayed and now with the collective bargaining agreement up in the air so really is his status as a free agent. Here is what Thomas has done for the New Orleans Saints over his career:

The stats are not bad for 2009. Thomas was a work horse for the New Orleans Saints. When he is healthy he can do the job. The question is how severe the injury to his ankle is, will it require surgery and if so what are the prospects after rehab. Based on current reports, surgery seems likely.

Thomas said he has been told that surgery is likely. But he’s hoping that Anderson might prescribe rest. Either way, Thomas said he’s just eager to have a final verdict on what’s wrong and how it can get better. This will affect Thomas’s chances as a free agent. There are times where the free agent market is not as impressed with the player is with himself. Two examples are, Moore and Sharper who found out that the New Orleans Saints were really their best option.

There is also Chris Ivory:

Ivory ended the season on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury to his foot which is a very serious injury for a running back. This is going to require surgery and a six month rehab so Ivory will not be 100% for training camp. This is the type of injury that could cause problems even after the surgery and only time will tell.

So what happens from here? The New Orleans Saints have learned that there are some great running backs in the lower rounds and in undrafted free agents. The New Orleans Saints have Lynell Hamilton, P.J. Hill, Joique Bell, and Deshawn Wynn who are all under 5 years in the league and could step up and fill a role. So while this is an area of concern, I would not spend a high round draft pick on a running back. Next we are going to take a look at the quarterback position for the New Orleans Saints.
