OSTEOARTHRITIS OF THE KNEE

Osteoarthritis is one of the most disabling diseases in the world, causing joint pain & restricted joint function. The degenerative joint condition can seriously impact mobility– currently, 80% of those affected suffer limitation in movement. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of fifty experience an osteoporotic bone fracture.

OSTEOPOROSIS OF THE BONE

Osteopenia is the first stage towards developing osteoporosis. With osteopenia rates increasing, particularly among postmenopausal women, preserving healthy bones is vital to avoid unnecessary fractures and to maintain mobility while ageing.

UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE OF COLLAGEN & YOUR BONES

Bones are in a constant state of flux. The maintenance of the bone matrix and minerals is dependent on a process called bone remodelling, or bone turnover, which replenishes the cells and matrix which form our bones.

Bone turnover replaces approximately 15% of bone mass in healthy adults each year. Imbalanced rates of bone resorption and formation, leading to more bone loss than formation, are indicators of osteopenia, a bone mineral density deficiency.

Collagen provides the structural framework on which calcium and other minerals are anchored. Research has shown that a daily intake of collagen can assist in maintaining collagen levels and can help preserve bone health.
