This Sachet contains collagen peptides, glucosamine sulphate potassium chloride and vitamin c ,which help maintain a healthy cartilage, hence fit joints. Combination can help prevent osteoarthritis (OA) progression and may also help favorably modify the structural and function degradation of the joint cartilage which are normal as we age. Daily intake of sachet will help rebuild cartilage, help improve flexibility and mobility in people affected with OA. Those who have high risk of developing OA may also consume this sachet regularly for prevention .
What is cartilage?
Cartilage is a firm rubbery tissue that normally forms a soft protective layer (cushion) between the ends of the bones. These allow bones to move smoothly over one another at the joints and are designed to absorb shock at joints and are designed to absorb shock at joints during activities.
What is collagen?
Collagen is the main component of cartilage which plays a very important role in maintaining elasticity and cushion like nature of cartilage. A failure of this would result in increased hydration of the cartilage tissues, softening the surrounding supporting structures, and eventual degradation or break of the cartilage.
Where collagen is found?
Collagen is found not only in the cartilage, but also in most of the body organs, hence it is of various types. It is essentially the "glue" that holds the body tissues together , connecting and supporting body tissues of the skin ,tendons ,muscles ,cartilage ,bones and even the teeth .Collagen plays an important role in the skins architecture and elasticity. The quality and amount of the collagen in the skin is a major determinant of one's appearance.
What is osteoarthritis?
In osteoarthritis (OA) there is gradual loss of cartilage covering the joint surfaces .This causes pain, swelling and stiffness. It mostly affects the joint that bear weight. Most commonly it occurs in the knees and hips. However, it can also affect ankles, feet, finger, wrists, shoulder and spine. OA can occur at any age, but it is more commonly seen in people over 45 years. The main causes of OA are an imbalance between regeneration of the cartilage.
Can osteoarthritis become worse?
Combination stimulates proliferation and production of tendon cells and Collagen Type I respectively. This facilities the fibrillar cross linking and Glycosaminoglycan synthesis. It has been observed and documented that administration of this combination in cases of tendinopathies helps maturing the tendon fibers to its normal tensile strength the fiber organization.
What are the frequent signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis (OA)?
âStiffness and pain in the joint that are affected. Changes in weather, especially cold and damp, may increase this pain.
âJoints may have limited movement and less flexibility throughout and may feel stiff ,particularly in the morning .
âSwelling in the affected joints, such as knee.
âCrackling or grating sounds in the joints .
Who are at the risk of getting osteoarthritis (OA)?
âAge: 50% of people over age 60 have some signs of OA.
âObesity and being overweight may cause rapid progression of OA.
âActivities that stress joints (e.g., dancers, football, players, instruments musicians).
âInjury to the joint.
âFamily history of OA.
How to prevent osteoarthritis (OA)?
It is now well known that bioactive collagen peptides can help maintain bone and joint health to prevent OA. Collagen productivity declines with age. Natural collagen decline can be dramatically expedited by poor health choices such as smoking and drinking. Part of preventing OA is getting to a healthy weight and maintaining the weight .keeping fit by including exercise without excessive stress on joints ,weight controlling measure and rest may be included in daily routine for prevention of OA .
How does combination work in osteoarthritis (OA)?
Sachet Combination helps in formation of collagen fibers which form the ground material for healthy cartilage tissues .It stimulates the regeneration of cartilage tissue, provides strength and maintains the elastic properties of cartilage.
It helps keep cartilage packing materials intact, appropriately hydrated and well organized. It keeps joints movable, healthy, flexible and helps maintain activity.
What are the role of bioactive collagen paptides, glucosamine and vitamin c in Sachet?
Oral administration of bioactive collagen peptides has been shown to be beneficial and safe in patients with arthritis. The collagen provides strength to the cartilage and maintains its elastic properties resulting in flexibility of the joints.
Vitamin C is critical for normal health of bone and cartilage. In OA, oxidation is a potential cause of cartilage degradation .Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, which prevents cartilage degradation ,help form collagen fibers and mucopolysaccharides out of glucosamine in the cartilage tissue .
Glucosamine is very important for the proper functioning, structure and formation of cartilage. Glucosamine is naturally present in the joint cartilages. As age advances, the level of glucosamine comes down and normal cartilage regeneration reduces .Scientific studies have shown that glucosamine sulphate helps preserve cartilages. Glucosamine produces important glycosaminoglycan in the cartilage substance and thus this help cartilage regeneration and prevents cartilage degeneration. Experiments have shown that glucosamine specifically and significantly prevents breaking of collagen fibers. Current research also has shown that glucosamine can help arrest the progression of established OA by slowing down of cartilage decay. Moreover, Glucosamine has a proven track record all over the world showing favorable or beneficial effect on OA.
Sachet is suitable for diabetics and overweight individuals as it is free from sugar and fat.
