is a specifically balanced formula of organically bound and clinically tested selenium compounds contained within the cells of brewer’s yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and RRR-alpha-tocopherol, the most biologically active form of the vitamin E complex. In addition RRR-alpha-tocopherol is the natural form of vitamin E and the only a-tocopherol isomer found in nature. Each bottle contains 60 softgels, a 30 day supply. Rarely are more than two bottles needed, and often only one is sufficient.
The RRR-alpha-Tocopherol in Oscon reacts with free radicals 1000 times faster than they are propagated. Chemicals such as radical oxygen species and lipid peroxyl radicals are effectively deactivated. There are some resultant breakdown products (hydroperoxides) formed as the free radicals are destroyed. These peroxide by-products are attacked by the higher levels of glutathione peroxidase enzymes created within the body from the organic selenium compounds in Oscon. This process controls inflammation and subsequent edema (excess fluid associated with swelling). Children generally heal rapidly in the absence of conditions which inhibit healing. Results are usually seen within the first week!
Oscon contains no 2-ambo or all-rac isomers as are found in synthetic vitamin E, all of which have less vitamin E activity in the body. Oscon comes in hermetically sealed soft gelatin capsules that are easy to swallow, made to the highest pharmaceutical GMP standards, and has been proven to work since 1987. Many years of using a variety of ingredients at varying dosages has developed a product that is appropriate and safe. It should appeal to children, and their parents, because it is safe, economical and easy to take. Last, but not least, it can help reduce pain and get children back into the sports and social activities that they undoubtedly miss. Severs Disease is especially found in children who excel in athletic endeavors. In other words, those bodies that are most well equipped to perform in athletic competition. The paradox here is that the extra strain that these talented children are able to put on their musculo/skeletal framework is the very cause of their pain!
Each Oscon softgel provides safe amounts of RRR-alpha-tocopherol and SelenoExcell™ 100% organic selenium compounds. Other ingredients are natural color, gelatin, purified water and glycerin. Oscon dissolves rapidly in the digestive tract.
Oscon may be the most significant advance yet in the treatment of these types of injuries. Based upon two common micronutrients, which are actually essential for health, it offers rapid absorption, beneficial effect, high safety and efficacy, low cost, and easy administration. Lack of compliance has been the main cause for more than one course of therapy. In thousands of cases, side effects and drug interactions have never been reported.

Sorbothane® Polymer Heel Pads
Medical research has proven that when a heel hits the ground the body can suffer “heel-strike” shock, which can cause painful foot, leg and back symptoms and aggravate existing problems such as Severs Disease. Exciting new breakthroughs in medical science have made it possible to develop a space-age polymer material, Sorbothane®, which absorbs up to 90% of shock! The results? Sorbothane® diverts shock waves sideways instead of up through the foot and leg. Because Sorbothane® has a perfect memory; it recovers in time to cushion every step, over and over again. No wonder it is used daily by physicians, athletes and pain sufferers all over the world for soothing comfort and relief from their foot, leg and lower back pains. Available in three sizes. See the order page to make the correct choice.
Sorbothane® Polymer Heel Cups
The purpose of the Sorbothane Heel Cup® is to more fully protect the heel anatomy. It has a specially designed cup with an integrated heel pad that cushions the bottom of the heel while it protects the calcaneal area most affected by Severs Disease. It acts as both a shock absorber and as a protective appliance. These Heel Cups are clinically designed for maximum comfort and relief, are lightweight and shock-absorbing and are bio-mechanically designed to help alleviate foot, knee, hip and back pain. Available in two sizes. Order the Medium for shoe sizes up to 7, and the Large for sizes over 7. Can be trimmed for a customized fit if necessary.
