Your cartilage is made primarily of collagen. So are your tendons and ligaments. The amount, and condition, of collagen is by far the largest determinant of the health of all three. The University of Washington medical journal cites: “The material strength and biological properties of articular cartilage depend heavily on its uniquely and extensively cross-linked collagen network.” That’s “medical speak” for healthy collagen equals healthy cartilage. In a separate clinical trial, the active ingredient, choline-stabilized OrthoSilicic Acid (ch-OSA), is proven to generate collagen. With cs-OSA, you can now attack the root cause of joint discomfort – not just mask the symptoms.
Masking the symptoms may make you feel temporarily better, but it allows joint problems to get even worse. Cartilage “fragmentation” is the root cause of joint pain. Cartilage is the “front line” defense against joint pain. Cartilage “buffers” the ends of the bones that meet. Think of it as a “spongey” shock absorber. Cartilage literally “covers” the ends of bones preventing them from rubbing together when you move. But due to injury, or aging, cartilage can begin to “fragment.” These cartilage fragments then lodge themselves directly in the joint. This is when you feel pain and experience loss of flexibility and diminished range of motion. When enough cartilage degrades, bones begin to rub against one another causing osteo-arthritis.
In a double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial, ch-OSA is proven to inhibit the fragmentation of cartilage in men, relieve joint discomfort, increase flexibility and create greater range of motion (see complete clinical trial results). In a separate clinical trial ch-OSA, is proven to generate collagen, exactly what tendons, ligaments and cartilage are made of. Finally, men have a bona fide solution to joint problems that deals with the root cause, not just attempts to mask the symptoms.
