Joint Pain and Collagen
Most of us are affected by some form of joint discomfort every now and then no matter what your age is. If you are age between 10-20 who is active in sports, you are using a lot on your joints. Age 20-40 working adults, we tend to sit or stand a lot due to the nature of work. This puts a lot of pressure on our joints as well especially our lower back. Age 40 and above, when our stamina starts to deteriorate, still active in sports and work, we tend to use up our collagen fuel in our body. Last but not least, all of us no matter young or old loves to travel! Travelling opens the mind and relaxes the soul. You would not want to be restricted to where you wanna go when you grow older, am I right?
So! Maintenance is key to keeping your body and joints healthy!
Collagen is the main building block for healthy blood vessels, flesh, cartilage, bones, tendons and connective tissues. After we reach the age of 25, the rate of collagen production starts to fall. When this happens, you experience cartilage degeneration, which may lead to joint deformities and osteoarthritis.
Do I need to take Collagen for Long Term?
We always ask this question. We have been so active in life and of course eating well is one of the main focus to good health. The same goes for our joint health as well. If you have been using your body and joints a lot, and they have been giving you signals (like soreness, pain, stiffness, or any form of discomfort), it’s time to take care of them! No matter what age you are at! It’s your body now that is doing the talking.
As we perform our daily activities, our body uses up our body collagen fuel. So where does the collagen fuel comes from? Yes our body produces collagen and boosted by the food that we eat! So when you are using more than what you have taken in, what happens next? The collagen warehouse will be short of collagen. Your body will give you signs of aging: skin (wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation); joints (crackling sound, joint pain, joint stiffness, joint swelling, lower back pain, neck pain).
So the signals that were given by our joints are very dependent on the area which is used most. For example is someone with neck pain, usually has problem with posture, lower back pain affected by people who sits and stand long hours, knee pain most people will experience some form of knee pain in their life as we walk everyday, shoulder pain etc. Some will go off after resting but some don’t. And age does affect the rate of healing of joint pain by its own. As our body age, our healing mechanism slows down, hence this result.
What is Joint Collagen?
Joint collagen or Bioactive collagen peptides (BCP) – type of collagen of short-chain protein peptides with 18 proteinogenic amino acids. These amino acids aid in nourishing body tissues, cartilages, bones, tendons, ligaments, hair, nails and skin. BCP is obtained by enzymatic hydrolysis from clean and safe bovine sources, commonly known as hydrolyzed gelatine. BCP is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) to improve bones and joints health.
The extremely low molecular weights (approximately 3000 Daltons) of BCP give excellent solubility. It is easily digested and absorbed into your body to reach targeted joint and bone area effectively to aid in regeneration of cartilage and collagen-containing tissues. This is to support and maintain healthy joint functions and to improve joint flexibility.
How does Rosehip Extract help in Joint Pain?
Rose hip (cynosbati) extract is a natural ingredient known for its natural anti-inflammation properties. Rose hip extract contains polyphenols and anthocyanins, which are believed to ease joint inflammation and prevent joint damage. Its rich Vitamin C content with anti-oxidant properties prevents tissue damage.
