Facts About Joint Injury/Trauma (Rheumatism), Osteoarthritis (Joint Degeneration) and Rheumatoid Arthritis
life our activities wear on various body joints and a general multiple-joint degeneration will occur. Clinical studies show the benefits of Type I Collagen found in Glucosamine Sulfate and Chondroitin Sulfate in providing nutritional support for maintaining or improving "normal wear and tear" joint health.
When a specific joint has been traumatized through sports, accident, surgery, etc., a specific localized chronic joint problem may result which includes flaring up of rheumatism in the joint. This rheumatism is a body immune-system complexity that blocks the bioabsorption of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate and the joint repair benefits of Type I Collagen.
For reasons not yet defined, Type II Collagen found in Chicken Cartilage is able to bypass this immune system barrier and provide positive improvements in joint pain and functionality.
Both Type I and Type II Collagen are compounds known as
mucopolysaccharides, which are necessary for the formation of healthy cartilage, collagen
and synovial fluid. These mucopolysaccharides also increase joint lubrication through
their water-holding capacity.
Type II Collagen was thoroughly tested and proven effective in a major double-blind controlled study at Harvard Medical School Click here for Excerpts
