How does Recogen® help with osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is considered a degenerative disease which inevitably occurs as one age. Despite years of research, there is no cure for osteoarthritis. At best, analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs can relieve pain and suppress related inflammatory reactions. Another method is to focus on stimulating the biosynthesis of cartilage cells or inhibiting cartilage degradation.
Recogen® products contain Bioactive Collagen Peptides that stimulate Type II Collagen's growth. Type II Collagen is essential for forming joint cartilage, which benefits people with osteoarthritis.
Two independent investigations, one conducted by Harvard Medical School and Tufts Medical Center and the other by Kiel University and scientists at Kiel-based Collagen Research Institute (CRI), have also confirmed the effectiveness of Recogen in stimulating cartilage regeneration in a presentation at the congress of the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARS) in 2009.
Is Recogen® a steroid or pain killer?
Neither. Recogen® is a food supplement, not a drug.
Recogen® has no known side effects and is proven safe for long-term consumption.
In 1999, U.S Food & Drug Administration Department granted the GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status to Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP), proposing it to be safe for consumption. An example of GRAS substance includes common salt, sugar and vitamins.
Does vegan collagen exist?
Collagen exists naturally only in animals. "Vegan collagen" is an extract of vegetables like legumes whose protein structure differs from that of humans.
Since collagen peptides of warm-blooded animals correspond to our body's collagen building blocks, our body recognises them as naturally produced proteins and can easily absorb and utilise them. For this reason, Recogen® insists on using collagen-containing tissue from the bovine hides of healthy animals to facilitate protein absorption and production.
Does Recogen® cause “heatiness”?
No documented studies showed that Recogen® cause “heatiness”, but this varies among individuals. If you feel the “heatiness” after consuming Recogen®, we recommend splitting one sachet into two doses and consuming one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
Does regular consumption of Recogen® result in weight gain?
Recogen® is a protein-only product comprising mainly amino acids, water, and minerals.
Since it does not contain fat, carbohydrates, or preservatives, consuming Recogen® will not result in weight gain or dietary imbalance.
What type of Calcium is added to Recogen® Calcium?
We use plant-based calcium lactate that is water soluble and flavourless for our Recogen® Calcium.
May I consume Recogen® together with glucosamine?
Yes, you may take them together.
However, to better identify the product's efficacy, we recommend taking Recogen® by itself for at least 1-3 months.
I'm taking medications for osteoporosis. Can I consume it with Recogen®?
Yes, you may do so.
Recogen® is a food supplement without known interactions with other food, drugs, or side effects. Nevertheless, we recommend you talk to health professionals before using this product if you have an existing medical condition.
Can someone with Parkinson's and/or suffering from kidney stones consume Recogen®?
There is no evidence that the substances in Recogen® interact with Parkinson's or kidney stones. From a scientific point of view, Morbus Parkinson's is caused by a lack of dopamine, whereas urine concretions result in kidney stones.
Recogen® do not contain any uretic proteins that may cause kidney stones. Nevertheless, we advise customers with any existing illnesses to consult their medical doctor before starting on any food supplements.
Can pregnant women, children and even diabetic patients consume Recogen®?
There are no restrictions on its use. Anyone without protein metabolism problems or other rare diseases may take Recogen® as a supplement to healthy lifestyle.
Can I consume Recogen® if I have gout?
Yes. In fact Recogen® Gold and Recogen® Total contains rosehip extract that helps reduce inflammation and relieves pain caused by uric crystals.
I took Recogen® for a few days yet I’m experiencing more pain in several areas of my body. Should I stop taking Recogen®?
No, Recogen® is a food supplement that does not cause pain. Several clinical studies have also proven the effectiveness of Recogen® against osteoarthritis.
The pain you experienced is likely caused by the “ups and downs” of pain in osteoarthritis or by other underlying reasons, such as the body adapting to a sudden surge of collagen production. If you experience continual pains which you suspect are not related to osteoarthritis, please talk to health professionals before taking Recogen®.
How long does it take to see results after consuming Recogen® products?
Depending on the severity of symptoms, some consumers feel the difference after consuming the product in just 2 - 4 weeks. Do note that results vary across individuals.
Nevertheless, we recommend taking our product for at least 6 months for those with severe and prolonged symptoms.
If you feel like you are not benefitting from Recogen®, here's a checklist:
☐ Confirm you have osteoarthritis. Recogen® don't work well for muscular aches, damaged nerves etc.
☐ Consume the recommended dosage of 10g every day
☐ NEVER mix Recogen® into hot and/or caffeinated beverages (Eg. Coffee and tea) as this may inhibit the absorption of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin D and calcium. Always consume Recogen® with cold or warm beverages for best results.
I don't feel pain in my joints, can I still take Recogen®?
Yes, you may.
Our joints go through wear and tear throughout our lifespan. Consuming Recogen® helps slow the wear and tear process and lowers the risk of osteoarthritis as you age. To achieve a healthy lifestyle, we highly recommend incorporating Recogen ® into your daily diet for healthier joints and bones!
