We are excited to share the news that Tamer Elsafy, our Flexcin CEO, was interviewed for an article in The Huffington Post to share his grandmother's story of cooking with arthritis! We hope this article will be of great use to each of you as you battle the fatigue and pain associated with preparing your daily cuisine and it helps you find joy again in the art of cooking as it did for Tamer's grandmother.
As many of you may know, Tamer's late grandmother was the inspiration behind Flexcin. He wanted to find a safe, effective way to naturally help her eliminate her arthritis and joint pain. Since she was known for her cooking during the holidays until arthritis kept her out of the kitchen, her story and the evolution of Flexcin grabbed the attention of Dietitian Ashley Koff and was recently included in her posting Is Arthritis Keeping You Out of the Kitchen?.
Check out the full article posted on The Huffington Post for tips from the Food Network's dietitian, Ellie Krieger as well as some tips from Amye Leong, the author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide To Arthritis". Both women share great ideas to help make kitchen duty less painful.
Here's an excerpt from the story of our CEO's grandmother:
"Tamer Elsafy's late grandmother was known for her cooking during the holidays until arthritis kept her out of the kitchen. Tired of watching her deteriorate from prescriptions or remedies that either didn't work or ones that brought unwanted side effects, Tamer, with a background in dietary supplements, created his own nutritional product that helped her ease the pain and get back to her love of cooking. The key: CM8 — Cetyl Myristoleate — discovered by Dr. Harry Diehl at the NIH in several decades ago. Elsafy included this ingredient in the first batch of a product (today known as Flexcin) for his grandmother, and waited to assess her results. When he didn't hear for weeks, he jokes "I was worried I had killed her," but when we finally spoke she said she'd been too busy gardening and doing all her favorite activities to check in. Her one request: "Please send me some more of that stuff, I am doing great." Today Elsafy's business is helping more than just grandmothers as the product appears to work on those with arthritis as well as pain from sports injuries."
