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.
