Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease. Millions of people need an effective treatment. The demand for treatments, both traditional and non-traditional, will continue to grow as the population ages.
According to published studies, oral intake of gelatine hydrolysate (collagen hydrolysate) has been shown to be absorbed intestinally and to accumulate in cartilage. Collagen hydrolysate ingestion stimulates a statistically significant increase in synthesis of extracellular matrix macromolecules by chondrocytes ( p < 0.05 compared with untreated controls).
These findings suggest mechanisms that might help patients affected by joint disorders such as OA. Four open-label and three double-blind studies were identified and reviewed; although many of these studies did not provide key information – such as the statistical significance of the findings – they showed collagen hydrolysate to be safe and to provide improvement in some measures of pain and function in some men and women with OA or other arthritic conditions.

Consumption: 3 teaspoons a day, can be taken anytime, before or after meal. Dissolve in 250 ml of warm water (30°C - 40°C).
Try for 1 month. If there is no positive progress, you may stop taking and seek medical advice.
If positive progress is observed, suggest to continue for 3 to 12 months, depending on individual condition.
Upon attaining satisfactory results, may take 1 teaspoon regularly for maintenance purposes.
Recovery should be progressive. Blood test, X-ray or MRI is good for reference.
Reduce intake of spicy, fried or roasted foods.
Drink more water i.e. 2000-2500 ml per day to facilitate metabolism.
If wheelchair-bound but still able to stand up and move about, muscle-strengthening activity is required (muscle and tendon may be wasted due to long-term use of wheelchair).
May occur to certain people within the first 2 weeks. The reactions are normal and will disappear gradually, and one will feel more relieved thereafter.
Feeling tired or sleepy.
Itchiness in joints.
High level of uric acid can lead to inflammation, causing more pain especially in the first week if certain foods are not avoided and water intake is inadequate.
