What do you know about osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common health conditions of modern times, which afflicts millions of people worldwide, causing pain and mobility problems. Suffice it to say that in Greece alone, OA undermines the quality of life of more than 2.5 million people.
It occurs when the articular cartilage, which cushions the ends of the bones in the joints to facilitate movement and reduce friction, gradually deteriorates causing inflammation of the synovial membrane that surrounds the joint. OA occurs on the joints as a result of normal wear and tear.
Is there any solution for those suffering from this chronic condition?
Until recently, the solutions proposed have been aimed at treating the symptoms, such as pain and stiffness, in an attempt to control the damage of the joints, while in special cases, medical interventional solutions, such as surgical procedures and corticosteroid and hyaluronic acid injections, are chosen. The most commonly used treatment solutions are simple analgesics, Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), and various medications that often lack documented effectiveness.
Of course, where necessary, doctors may recommend the decrease of body weight with the aim of reducing the pressure exerted on the affected joints, or the use of supportive devices such as special orthopedic insoles and splints. In cases of increased joint stress due to exercise, knee pads and wristbands are recommended for shock absorption and control of the range of motion.
Unfortunately, however, all of the above solutions that are –until now– available to healthcare professionals do not satisfactorily address the sufferers’ needs. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are among the most effective medicines for treating acute pain, are not recommended for long-term use due to their gastrointestinal and cardiovascular side effects.
New innovative patented technology – NEM®
The revolution in the treatment of joint pain has been brought about by a new technology, globally known as NEM® (Natural Eggshell Membrane), which derives from a patented, high-tech special processing method of the eggshell membrane. NEM® is a unique combination of naturally occurring chondroitin sulfate, collagen, hyaluronic acid and glucosamine, in the appropriate form and quantity in order to be effectively usable by the human body.
NEM® has been studied extensively through several clinical studies solidifying its beneficial effects on joint health. It significantly contributes to pain relief, even leading to a reduction in the use of analgesics, as also proven by studies.
At the same time, it helps reduce stiffness, notably increasing the range of motion.
NEM® has already seen great success in the United States but also in many European countries, such as the United Kingdom, Belgium and Spain, while its unique benefits are now also available in Cyprus through the innovative natural food supplement SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID.
SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID also contains 100% of the Recommended Daily Intake of Manganese, an essential trace mineral that contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and the normal formation of connective tissue.
The systematic use of the nutritional supplement SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID, by taking a single capsule a day, helps contribute to healthy cartilage and joints, maintaining their flexibility and ease during daily movement. The first results are visible within 10 days, while in a 90-day clinical study, a continuous improvement was observed after systematic use of the product.
With an excellent safety profile due to its natural origin and non-interaction with other medicines as well as its ecological production process, free of chemicals in GMP plants in line with strict FDA specifications, SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID promises a new era for the treatment of joint pain.
A significant advantage is the fact that it is a unique, alternative solution for people who suffer from cardiovascular and gastrointestinal disorders and need to avoid the use of NSAIDs due to adverse effects.
Osteoarthritis can occur in anyone of us either due to strenuous sports and exercise, overweight, genetics, menopause or age. Today, however, we are lucky to have SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID, the effective solution that helps us protect our quality of life and daily routine.
