Lubricate your dried-up joints
THE Global Burden of Disease 2010 study estimated that 251 million people suffered from knee osteoarthritis (OA) worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 524 million people were aged 65 or older and this number is expected to triple by 2050, affecting 16% of the world’s population. Studies have also revealed that a growing number of younger people are now suffering from early stages of this disease. relief include injection to replenish the joint lubricant (hyaluronic acid) or going for joint replacement surgery.

B2cool, a native type II collagen extracted from chicken sternum cartilage has demonstrated clinical effect at low doses in different joint problems – rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and joint discomfort by reducing joint swelling and pain, and improving knee function. It has a special mechanism of action and oral tolerance absorbed in the gut and initiates cell-signalling cascades that uses the body’s natural repair mechanisms. It is tested safe and only a low dose needed. “As the disease progresses we need to move to a more targeted natural therapy that can be taken orally and easily digested, without having to go through any pain, needles or surgeries,” said Bioiberica international scientific manager Marta Masides Olagarta.
She added, “this special combination is clinically tested to help sufferers with just one capsule a day for eight weeks to replenish joint (synovial) fluids to lubricate joints by increasing joint hyaluronic acids by 10 folds, and to rebuild the joint cartilage repairing process and regain strength, naturally.”
A Community Oriented Programme for Control of Rheumatic Diseases (COPCORD) survey which was conducted in Malaysia back in 2007 found most osteoarthritis sufferers in Malaysia have knee osteoarthritis, which correlated with another study conducted in Hong Kong. The study also found that most Malaysians aged 55 years complained that the rate of pain increased to 23% whilst a 39% increase of pain rate was found in those over 65 years.
“Early treatment can help to alleviate the symptoms and slow down the progression of this disease. There are many younger people who wants to be active in sports but can’t due to early stages of joint degeneration. Their issues are not severe enough for surgery but painful enough to limit their ability to continue in sports,” said Olagarta.
