Part II: Why take Recogen®?
Our joints undergo a tremendous amount of stress over their lifetime. The pressure on our joints makes them prone to damage over long periods as the cartilage is lost and worn out. This "wear-and-tear" of the joints eventually leads to arthritic conditions such as osteoarthritis.
A survey conducted by MOH and NUS in 2001 revealed that arthritic conditions and rheumatism were among the top 5 leading conditions for which Singaporeans sought in clinics.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease which inevitably occurs as the population ages. Factors such as lack of exercise and being overweight are also associated with an increased risk of osteoarthritis. Modern dietary trends, including fast food, vegetarian diets, and low-fat & lean meat diets, also suggest that a large part of the population has an inadequate collagen intake.
Despite years of research, there is still no cure for osteoarthritis. At best, analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs can relieve pain and suppress related inflammatory reactions. A therapeutic approach is to focus on either providing means to slow down cartilage degradation or stimulate cartilage cell biosynthesis.
More and more scientific evidence suggests that Recogen® Bioactive Collagen Peptides stimulate the growth of Type II Collagen, which is essential for forming joint cartilage.
