Can Collagen supplements and Collagen capsules help you become more beautiful and also 'rejuvenate' a painful body? Collagen is a protein, and its use is increasing as its benefits in providing relief from joint pain, rejuvenating the skin and other beauty benefits are becoming more well-known.
Science has discovered that osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are caused by the body launching an autoimmune attack against exposed fragments of cartilage. Studies have documented that undenatured type II Collagen is effective in providing pain relief caused by osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis by acting against these autoimmune reactions that can initiate joint pain and degeneration. Taking this kind of collagen by mouth desensitizes the body's immune response, thus blocking the body's T-cells from attacking its own exposed cartilage (1).
Clinical trials of undenatured bio-active type II collagen demonstrated this type of collagen to be more efficient than glucosamine and chondroitin for supporting issues of osteoarthritis of the knee (2), and concluded that undenatured type II collagen promoted a 'significant enhancement in daily activities suggesting an improvement in their quality of life' (2).
Remedy's Type II Collagen features undenatured type II collagen. Remedy's Type II Collagen also contains Vitamin C, which has been documented to support the body's own production of collagen. Collagen is most effective for pain relief and beautification of the skin when taken before bedtime, at a ratio of 1000 milligrams (1 Remedy's capsule) per 70 pounds of body weight.
Currently, medical treatment of OA may feature exercise, heat/cold therapy, joint protection (supports), losing weight, therapy and/or medications. Common medications include acetaminophen and NSAIDs. These drugs are effective for pain associated with OA but do not reverse the disease, and there are considerable side effects associated with these drugs. Type II Collagen is a 'functional food' that may be taken along with medications for pain (always consult with your physician first) to support better joint function. Remedy's Type II Collagen may also be taken by those currently using Glucosamine or Chondroitin. Remedy's Type II Collagen is an ideal replacement as well for those who cannot take Chondroitin due to shellfish allergies. For nutritional support of OA and RA, consider adding home-made whole chicken soup and an 'apple a day' (be sure to eat the rind, where the beneficial polyphenols are) to your diet.
