Dr. Susan Lark, women’s health expert, creates a new nutrient formula exclusively for women to improve joint health

POTOMAC, Md., August 12,

2003—Susan Lark, MD, one of the foremost authorities in the

fields of preventive medicine, clinical nutrition and women’s

health, has created a new natural-health product called Daily

Balance Joint Answer for Women, designed to address the

joint health of women as they age. Dr. Lark’s joint-health

formula is available exclusively through Doctors’ Preferred,

Inc. (DPI), a subsidiary of Phillips Health, and one of the largest

North American direct-mail supplement distributors.

“Statistically, more women experience joint

discomfort than men,” says Dr. Lark. “Although there are

several one-size-fits-all natural approaches on the market that

address one or two joint concerns, including MSM, glucosamine, and

chondroitin, none of these supplements, I believe, address the particular

joint issues for women.”

Dr. Lark explains that after the age of 40, a woman

produces less estrogen, and it is her belief that estrogen levels

may influence the regeneration of cartilage, which acts as a joint-protecting

“shock absorber,” especially critical in heavily used

joint areas like the knees and hips. Additionally, declining estrogen

may have a drying effect on many of a woman’s natural lubricants,

including the synovial fluid that cushions the space around her

bones to keep joints comfortable and moving freely. Dr. Lark is

confident that future research will confirm the role of estrogen

in promoting overall joint health in women.

Daily Balance Joint Answer for Women

includes a unique nutrient combination to support joint health in

women by relieving aches and pains associated with normal wear and

tear, increasing joint mobility, flexibility, and function, promoting

a normal inflammatory response within joint tissue, maintaining

healthy joints, and promoting the building of joint tissues and

estrogen balance.

Daily Balance Joint Answer for Women

provides all the nutrients women’s joints need, in the forms

and combinations that have been shown to be effective. After extensive

research, Dr. Lark identified several key nutrients that work together

to offer women comfort, mobility, and health in their joints, including:

Celadrin, a fatty acid complex; White Willow Bark Extract, a phytonutrient

made in Germany and the only brand of white willow bark preparation

studied in several clinical trials; Essential Fatty Acids; Polygonum

Cuspidatum (Japanese Knotweed), a plant-based estrogen; and Glucosamine.

For her formula, Dr. Lark scanned the world to

find sources whose manufacturing processes would result in the purest

and highest quality natural ingredients available anywhere. As a

physician who educates others on the benefits of natural approaches

to health, Dr. Lark is uncompromising when it comes to the dietary

supplements she recommends.

Her monthly newsletter, The Lark Letter,

with a circulation of more than 130,000 subscribers, and her web

site,, are dedicated to educating and

empowering women to make the best choices for optimum health. Online

visitors may also sign up for Dr. Lark’s free biweekly e-newsletter,

which presents breaking health news along with lifestyle tips, easy

recipes and simple exercises for health and well-being.
