Goodbye to joint troubles
EMMA Samuel, 49, has been caring for her 73- year- old mother. Her mother suffered from bad joints, which impeded her movements.
She planned to take her mother and family on a holiday but her mother insisted on staying at home.
Emma knew her mother’s painful knees would stop her from enjoying the trip.
Having tried various glucosamine supplements and even acupuncture, Emma is at a loss in offering more freedom in life for her mother.
Scientists have found that joint problems are caused by an imbalance in the body due to an enzyme in the joints, known as Matrix Metalloproteinases ( MMP enzymes).
When MMP enzymes are triggered by high impact sports, injury or genetics, joint problems develop fast, bringing about inflammation, pain and swelling.
MMP enzymes exist in a balanced state within joints, but when the body starts producing too much, the joints break down faster than they can rebuild.
Joint damage and inflammation ensue, leading to pain and in time, bone spurs that limit joint movement
Targeting the source
The discovery of MMP enzymes was an important step in finding a solution against joint problems, but drug prototypes have serious side effects, hampering efforts.
Scientists recently uncovered and verified a natural substance active against MMP enzymes, which has been around for more than 30 years.
The anti- arthritic New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel extract called Biolane is the world’s first and only MMP inhibitor proven to be able safeguard joints against its selfinflicted damage by MMP enzymes.
Biolane also has anti- inflammatory, antioxidant and marine mineral healing actions, making it a unique solution to address the various pathology indicated in joint problems.
It makes it possible to restore troubled joints of the knees, shoulders, neck, back and fingers, giving the joints a newfound capacity to revert to normal functionality.
Time to heal
Biolane has been clinically tested in patients to deliver a 70% success rate, though patients need to undergo a treatment course of at least three months at the right dose before effects are felt.
Additional advantage is Biolane’s stomachprotecting properties when taken together with painkillers, reducing gastric lesions by more than 50%.
In the long run, patients might not need painkillers any more.
Biolane is probably one of the most enduring joint products in the world today. In 2005, the Australian Centre for Complementary Research and Education ( ACCMER) awarded Biolane the Ideal Anti- Arthritic Agent accolade.
It is used by medical prescribers in more than 25 countries worldwide and available in leading pharmacies and clinics in Malaysia.
Back to travelling
Emma learnt from a pharmacist about Biolane and was assured of its efficacy and drawn by it being a natural product.
She persuaded her mother to try and almost three months later, her mother came up to her unaided by her usual walking stick.
Now half a year on, Emma’s mother no longer needs to rely on herbal ointments or painkillers. She is also no longer troubled by gastritis problems.
The family made a trip to Cameron Highlands with her now- active mother in tow.
