Taken as 3 caplets per day on an empty stomach, it delivers chicken collagen along with a botanical blend, a phytonutrient blend, Syrian Oregano and a systemic enzyme blend including bromelain and proteases, and is designed to support normal joint function and mobility and to support healthy metabolism in connective tissue.

For additional joint and tissue support, FYI contains:

  • lipase (a potent fat-digesting enzyme).
  • amylase (a starch-digesting enzyme).
  • cellulase (an enzyme that breaks down plant fiber).
  • Syrian oregano with antioxidant compounds and essential oils.
  • Cat’s Claw, a traditional Peruvian herb to support the body’s ability to fight off free radicals.
  • turmeric root, an antioxidant shown to support normal joint function.
  • young leaves of Rhododenron caucasium, traditionally used as tea that contains a unique form of highly available polyphenolic antioxidants.

Arthritis and Inflammation

According to the American Arthritis Society, the term arthritis refers to more than one hundred separate conditions. More than 40 million Americans (one in six) have inflammatory conditions and by the year 2020 the Center for Disease Control and Prevention projects that the prevalence of arthritis will increase to 60 million Americans (almost 20% of the population).

Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in America with women being affected more than men. Gout, an inflammatory disease that causes sudden and severe attacks of pain, tenderness, and swelling in joints affects more than one million Americans.

The traditional treatment for arthritis involves the use of pain killers such as NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as aspirin, Motrin, Feldene, Naprosyn, or COX-2 inhibitors such as Celebrex. These medications may temporarily help to relieve the symptoms of pain but do nothing to eliminate or combat the disease itself.

In fact, studies show that continual use of NSAIDs and prescription medications can actually accelerate the deterioration of the joints and worsen arthritis or other inflammatory conditions.

The following conditions involve high levels of inflammation:

  • Crohns and Colitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scleroderma
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Bursitis
  • Lupus
  • Psoriasis
  • Sports Injuries

Product Questions

  1. The Science of Whole Food

Your body was created to eat, process, and derive its nutrition from food—real, healthy food.  So, when we create our products, we start by looking at food. What is the “good stuff” in the highest quality food that we are missing in our diets? Which of those foods have the greatest potential to impact—and empower—extraordinary health?

  1. Clean is healthy

We start with what goes IN our products—true, whole food ingredients. But we don’t stop there. We also pay very close attention to what we keep OUT of them.  And once again, we look at food—real nutrition food. When is the last time you picked up an apple, turned to read the ingredients, and saw a list of chemicals?  If it’s not in your food, then we don’t want it in our supplements.  We use the following third-party (never self-affirmed) certifications to prove we are clean!  Click on them below and see.

  1. Traceability

Traceability is key to what makes Garden of Life’s products so special. Traceability starts with knowing where each and every ingredient in our products comes from and getting to know each and every source: where it’s grown; the farming practices; how they pay and treat the farm workers—everything.

That’s why it’s so important to start with Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified fruits and vegetables that are grown without these chemicals. We want to get the good stuff from foods that are grown without any of the bad stuff.

We do it because it’s the only way we know to deliver on our promise of Empowering Extraordinary Health

The synergistically balanced whole food, herbal, and enzyme blend in Garden of Life's FYI formulated by Jordan Rubin, consists of cartilage building proteins and mucopolysaccharides from chicken collagen type 2, systemic enzymes, and specific whole foods and herbs chosen for their proven anti-inflammatory abilities. Not only may the nutrients in FYI help to control and prevent inflammation, they have no side effects whatsoever and may, often times, prevent the occurrence of unwanted side effects caused by prescription medications. These specially selected whole foods and herbs in FYI contain powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties.

FYI from Garden of Life is carefully blended using the Poten-Zyme process to enhance absorption and improve assimilation.

Systemic Enzyme Blend:

Protease Blend:

A blend of protein digesting enzymes including 5 different proteases which distinguish themselves for their ability to function in a wide rang of pH environments and temperature conditions. These enzymes have shown to posses valuable therapeutic actions as anti-inflammatory agents.

Bromelain:

A powerful protein digesting enzyme from pineapple contains valuable anti-inflammatory and therapeutic agents. Bromelain is helpful in reducing the pain, swelling, and tenderness associated with injury.

Papain:

A well balanced mixture of protein digesting enzymes isolated from Papaya. Papain is valuable as an anti-inflammatory agent as well as the ability to reduce the tissue irritation and joint inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis.

Lipase:

A potent fat digesting enzyme helpful for chronic inflammatory conditions and joint pain and swelling.

Amylase:

A carbohydrate digesting enzyme may be beneficial for treating joint immobility.

Cellulase:

An enzyme that breaks down plant fiber is known for its use in alleviating chronic pain syndromes.

Chicken Collagen Type II:

Contains anti-inflammatory properties and has been clinically demonstrated to decrease pain and discomfort stemming from joint disorders. The compounds inherent in Chicken Collagen Type II provide the structural support of healthy joints by promoting new cartilage synthesis and by reducing oxidative damage to the joints. Chicken Collagen Type II contains naturally occurring chondroiton and glucosamine sulfates which help to bring water, shape, and cushioning back to the cartilage.

Wild Oregano Concentrate:

Contains thirty-one known anti-inflammatories, twenty-eight antioxidants and four known potent COX-2 inhibitors. With its thirty - one anti-inflammatories, oregano has more of these compounds than any other herb in the USDA Phytochemical database.

Poten-Zyme Ginger Extract:

Ginger has multiple constituents that inhibit COX-2 inflammation. It balances production of inflammatory prostaglandins PGE3 and PG12. Ginger's constituents safely restore healthy platelet function by inhibiting the formation of an eicosanoid group called thromboxanes (one of the main functions of aspirin.) Ginger reduces prostaglandins that sensitize pain receptors at nerve endings, thereby demonstrating powerful analgesic (or pain reducing) effects. Ginger has 180 times more protein - digesting enzymes than papaya. Ginger is commonly used as a natural treatment for ulcers.

Pote-Zyme Cat's Claw Extract:

Has been extensively used by Peruvian Ashaninka Indians to treat a wide range of illnesses including asthma, urinary tract inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, rheumatism, and bone pain. Cat's Claw contains potent phytochemicals called Quinovic Acid Glycosides. Studies indicate that some of it's constituents can inhibit inflammation from 46% to 69% in various in - vivo and in - vitro tests.

Poten-Zyme Turmeric Extract:

An Indian spice that demonstrates powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is a potent antioxidant. It is widely used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for the stimulation of beneficial liver action to relieve digestive inflammation.

Poten-Zyme Alfalfa Extract:

Provides over 90 biologically active minerals as well as eight unique enzymes. Alfalfa helps to alkalize the body which may reduce acidic deposits associated with inflammatory conditions. The alfalfa contained in FYI is a full spectrum extract of the alfalfa leaf and is therefore safe for use by those with autoimmune conditions.

Rhododendron Caucasicum Extract:

Known as the snow rose grows high in the Caucasian mountains of the Republic of Georgia. The smaller antioxidant molecules found in Rhododendron extract showed higher antioxidant values, compared to extracts containing OPCs such as pycnogenol and grape seed extract. The cardio - protective properties of Rhododendron caucasicum includes elimination of capillary fragility and hemorrhoid bleeding, as well as regulating blood pressure. Rhododendron has proven to be effective in ameliorating the symptoms associated with gout. In a clinical trial of over 170 volunteers with sever gout, the extract proved effective in just a few hours by relieving the painful symptoms associated with gout.

Laminaria and Ulva Extract:

Edible brown and green sea vegetables which contain large amounts of protein, vitamins, and polysaccharides. These sea vegetables contain Glucuronic Acid which is an important component of chondroitin sulfate. They also contain appreciable amounts of proline and ascorbic acid required for collagen synthesis.

Bayberry Bark Extract:

Contains large amounts of myricetin, a potent antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. Myricetin is a COX-1, COX-2 and 5-LOX inhibitor. It has been used for centuries for the treatment of infections such as dysentery and was reported to be an effective fever reducer.

Phytosterols:

Have been shown to modulate the immune response in autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and prevent damage caused by inflammation. Plant sterols have been shown to positively affect allergic rhinitis, sinusitis and asthma.
