You can both treat and prevent

If you are a chicken eater and have often
thought to yourself, that you throw too many
grams of carcasses in the trash, which could
otherwise be used as food, then there might
be a glimmer of hope.
A company has come up with the idea to
use the chicken’s collagen for human-appropriate
food, so we can maintain healthier
cartilage for longer.
And yes, this is not just an article for people
with old worn down knees, but to a greater
extend an opportunity to play your favourite
sport every day of the week and maybe even
for the rest of your life.

Given reasons, which we do not fully understand, are there
families that develop osteoarthritis easier and to a greater
extent than others. They appear to live healthy lives with
adequate amounts of exercise, they don’t have jobs where
unilateral movement patterns create poor elbows, wrists,
hips, or knees, and there are no apparent outward signs
that their body should have any difficulty forming enough
cartilage, which is necessary in all our true joints and not
just the joints which are mentioned most frequently, like
our hips and knees. We have two types of joints, the true
joints and the false joints, and it is with the true joints that
problems can arise with the joint fluid, which for different
reasons can be challenged and cause the formation of
cartilage, for instance in the knee, to come under pressure.
This can cause cracks or simple wear and tear, leading to
osteoarthritis. With rheumatoid arthritis, which is a completely
different kind of disease, is it also the joint fluid that
is under pressure, but here is it the immune system, which
is acting undesirably. Research suggests that Moveflex can
make a difference for both types of joint afflictions.
Aiding the body’s own production opportunities to
maintain healthy joints, will always be more optimal than
adding the wanted components by injecting them directly
into a joint.
Recent studies seem to indicate that a solution has been
found, that by using very small tablets (measured against
the size of other tablets used when treating the cartilage)
can stimulate the intestine’s immune system, the so-called
Peyer’s patches, to create a chain reaction in the body.
When Moveflex enters the small intestine and passes by
the small aggregated lymphoid nodules, which are present
all the way down the lower intestine and with the “headquarters”
around the appendix, will the lymphoid tissue
screen our food – our dietary supplements – and all kinds
of non-food – for what might benefit the body and thereby
let it be absorbed by the intestine, into the bloodstream.
If we look specifically at Moveflex, researchers have seen
that a relatively small amount of undenatured type 2 collagen
is accepted by the body and in transit will one of
the body’s large immune systems, the T-cells, be activated.
When the collagen meets the T-cells, will the TRAG-cells be
signaled, which will activate the next part of the chain reaction,
where an array of different inflammatory prohibiting
cytokines will be activated, such as TGA-beta, interleukin
(IL-4) and (IL-10). Now we are almost at the finish line,
because it’s these immune components, which can prevent
the joint fluid from being pressured or strained and thereby
create poor conditions for cartilage formation in the true
That the process is at all possible with such a small dosage
of collagen, is due to a method where you avoid that
the stomach acid gets a chance to brake down the collagen
on it’s way through the digestive system.
Research on ordinary people with knee pain
A clinical study published in 2013 showed, that the
group of participants, who were given the active substance,
had a significant improvement in their knee
mobility, compared to the placebo group. All 55 participants
had been divided into two groups by drawing
of lots and neither the doctor that administrated
the capsules, nor the participants knew what the results
were until the 120 days of the experiment had
passed. It wasn’t just the ability to move the knee
more freely, which was measured, there was also
measured a higher endurance, where it for instance
took a considerably longer time, before knee pains
arose, when the participants, under controlled conditions,
used a step-machine to mimic walking on stairs.
love to hear from you, when you gain some experience
with the product, and we look forward to seeing more
research done on the collagen product.
