HYALURONIC ACID: BEYOND BEAUTIFUL SKIN
Water is essential for good health. Our body is made up of 60% water and serves a number of important functions in our body. We need water to flush out waste from the body, to regulate our body temperature, to keep our skin hydrated and one very important function that many of us tend to overlook – to keep our joints lubricated. Different people have different percentages of water in their body. In general, women have a lower body water percentage compared to men. The water percentage will start to decrease as we age, thus it is very important to maintain healthy hydration in the body.
OSTEOARTHRITIS IN MENOPAUSE
84% of menopausal women have joint discomfort, that result in joint deterioration and pain. The main reason is due to the decline of oestrogen during perimenopause and menopause. This affects hyaluronic acid synthesis and increases its degradation in the body, leading to joint dehydration and osteoarthritis, eventually.
VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION FOR JOINTS WITH HYALURONIC ACID
Joint function relies heavily on the hydration level in the body. In the joint cavities, there is synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is a thick liquid in between the joints that lubricates the joint and allows for ease of movement. It also acts as cushioning within the joints. It is made up of two main components – water and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the body but begins to deplete as one grows old. Hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge and holds water to provide the right amount of hydration to the joints and viscosity to the synovial fluid.
In osteoarthritis, hyaluronic acid in the affected joints gets to be thinner and is broken down more quickly than in healthy joints. Hyaluronic acid injection is usually given to add on to the body’s natural supply. This injection is referred to "viscosupplementation”. Viscosupplementation is a procedure where hyaluronic acid is given to the joints via injection or oral route. Conventionally, most hyaluronic acid treatment is given via injection because oral consumption of hyaluronic acid is difficult to be absorbed into the body. It is usually recommended to osteoarthritic patients who do not get better with painkillers, glucosamine and chondroitin supplements or non-drug treatments like physical therapy. With viscosupplementation, the lubricating properties of synovial fluid and cartilages will improve, which ultimately reduce the pain, improve mobility and provide a more comfortable level of daily activities.
Many people have the fear for injection especially with the idea of having a huge needle poking into their knees. The injection may need to be repeated frequently, on monthly or quarterly basis, depending on the severity of the condition. A repetitive injection is required usually, to optimize its effect. The procedure can be uncomfortable especially if the joints are swollen. It is costly too. After the injection, there should be no hard weight-bearing activities for a day or two. The injection also comes with multiple side effects such as pain, rashes, swelling and possibility of infection. In some rare cases, the injected joint may flare up with increased inflammation.
KORDEL’S HYALURONIC ACID WITH COLLAGEN: WORKS AS WELL AS INJECTABLE HYALURONIC ACID MINUS THE PAIN
Most people would prefer oral supplementation of hyaluronic acid as the experience is less traumatic as compared to injection. However, oral hyaluronic acid, in general, is hard to be absorbed by the body. Kordel’s Hyaluronic Acid with Collagen is an innovative product formulated using Mobilee and B2Cool.
Mobilee is a patented natural ingredient that contains high concentration of hyaluronic acid and is well absorbed by the body. It also contains other natural components such as collagen and polysaccharide that act synergistically to enhance its effect. Mobilee has been scientifically proven to increase the level of hyaluronic acid by 10 times, therefore producing a potent lubrication for the joints. It not only helps to improve joint mobility, reduce pain and inflammation, but also increases muscle strength. The strength of muscle is important, particularly in women who suffers from osteoarthritis. In addition, Kordel’s Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen also contains B2Cool, a Native Type II Collagen that works via a unique mechanisme to reduce inflammation in the joints by protecting them against break down of endogenous collagen through modulation of the immune response.
YOU CAN NOW BE PRETTIER WITHOUT THE PAIN
Women, in particular, will benefit more from oral hyaluronic supplements to improve their joints’ hydration during menopause. Kordel’s Hyaluronic Acid with Collagen increases hyaluronic acid production, keeps your joints hydrated and young. It works as well as injectable hyaluronic acid minus the pain!
