Overcoming joint troubles TARGETING THE SOURCE
COLIN Sta Maria, 55, has been active in sports since his school days. Many Malaysians still remember him as the good-looking hockey player who represented the country in various national and international events including the Olympic Games back in 1982.
Although Colin has faced injuries in his sporting days, he always recovered so he could get back on the field. Never did he imagine that by his late 40s, he would suffer from pain and immobility due to arthritis in his knee. While the former sportsman no longer plays competitive hockey, he does appreciate an active lifestyle but can’t even go up a flight of stairs. He has tried various glucosamine and chondroitin joint formulas but to no avail. With recent advancements in biotechnology, scientists have uncovered a natural substance that acts against MMP enzymes. Biolane, the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel extract was found to be an effective MMP enzyme with particular ability to inhibit the primary degenerative enzymes MMP-1 and MMP-13.
The majority of joint supplements focus merely on cartilage re-building efforts by providing nutrients to the joints. Meanwhile Biolane is able to inhibit the damaging MMP enzymes from continually damaging cartilage which is being built.
Besides its MMP-inhibitory actions, Biolane also has antiinflammatory, antioxidant and marine mineral healing actions, making it a multi-benefit formula which is able to address the various pathologies involved in joint degeneration.
Although there are various New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel supplements in the market, only Biolane confers activity against MMP enzymes as its unique manufacturing process successfully preserves the active components required to do this. It is able to restore troubled joints of the knees, shoulders, neck, back and fingers, giving the joints of the body a new found capacity to revert to normal functionality. It is also known for its stomach-protecting properties. When Biolane is taken together with painkillers, it leads to a reduction in gastric lesions by more than 50%. In the long run when MMP enzymes are in balance, patients will find that they need not rely on their painkillers any more.
