New Hope For Joint Pain Sufferers
Date:8/16/2010

, 24 weeks and 48 weeks, showed patients had significant re-growth of damaged cartilage.

The year-long trial reported that while the cartilage in the placebo group deteriorated over the weeks, the groups taking the supplement collagen hydrolysate (Flexeze Fortify) experienced regeneration in cartilage. 

The cell-study results compliment those of researchers at the Kiel- based Collagen Research Institute who reported to the congress of the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (ORSI) in Montreal.

They noted that the bioactive collagen peptides formulation in Flexeze, were found to stimulate cell metabolism in knee-joint cartilage and promote the regeneration of cartilage tissue.

Dr Andrew Carson, a GP who is Associate Dean, GP Education, Birmingham and Solihull and Medical Advisor to the NHS Executive in the West Midlands said: "These two studies show real promise. 

"I am not aware of any other product which has been shown to regenerate articular cartilage.  

"The best that other products have achieved in the past is a reduction in the speed of disease progression and a subjective improvement in pain sensation.

"The improvements seen in the growth of the articular cartilage in the study group achieved statistical significance.

"I would recommend anyone taking glucosamine and chondroitin to consider this option which is a natural product with no known side-effects."

Pat Jones, 68, a former Olympic hurdler and now a dog agility trainer from Woking, Surrey, said: "When I was in my teens I was very sporty and realised my sporting dreams by being chosen to represent Great Britain in the hurdles at the 1968 Mexico Summer Olympic Games. 

"I've always valued being healthy and active and my work as a trainer of agility dogs keeps me on the go all the time. 

"Unfortunately my hip and knee joints are now paying the price and I have been diagnosed with arthritis.
