We’re not all as lithe and nimble as we want to be – so if you’ve noticed a creak in your joints or (bones) of late, you’re not the only one. Up to 600,000 New Zealanders suffer from joint pain caused by arthritis, and that’s not counting those who experience pain and damage caused by exercise, or simply plain old creaky joints. That’s where Good Health Joint Active with UC-II® can help to save the day – and your joints – with its unique triple action formula that preserves joints, regenerates cartilage and supports bones, both providing comfort and help to repair and protect.
Using UC-II®, a natural form of collagen that forms the primary structural component in cartilage, Good Health Joint Active with UC-II® works with the immune system to deactivate the cells that attack joint tissue, thus allowing the body to reduce inflammation and repair cartilage. Clinical studies including Harvard Medical School Research have shown that UC-II® works up to 2.5 times faster than well-known joint supplements glucosamine and chondroitin, and has shown to be more effective in overall pain relief. *
This unique formulation makes Good Health Joint Active with UC-II® highly effective in assisting with symptoms associated with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis, which have both been linked to heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in New Zealand, characterised by an inflammatory synovial response that leads to joint wear and tear and can be attributed to age, weight, acidity (pH), injury, and biomechanics among other factors. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease and New Zealand’s second most common form of arthritis, which causes the body’s own immune system to turn against itself and killer T-cells to attack the joint cartilage, resulting in inflammation and joint destruction. Many of the biochemical markers and symptoms associated with Osteoarthritis inflammation are also associated with Rheumatoid arthritis inflammation, and UC-II® helps to suppress and repair inflammation in both forms of arthritis.
In addition, Good Health Joint Active with UC-II® has been shown to assist those suffering from knee pain and stiffness, joint pain and inflammation, cartilage and joint damage caused by general wear and tear, exercise and ageing. Studies have shown that 26 per cent of New Zealanders suffer from joint pain and inflammation in the fingers, knees, hips or spine, yet just 39 per cent of those are receiving treatment for their condition. It even assists those who don’t have any pre-existing conditions – taken following exercise, Good Health Joint Active with UC-II® can help athletes and people with healthy joints to speed up joint recovery.
Good Health Joint Active with UC-II® comes as a small, easy-to-swallow capsule and contains no seafood, shellfish, added gluten, egg, dairy or soy, making it suitable for people who find it difficult to consume large supplements or those who have allergies. While it provides enough support to be taken on its own, it can also be taken with other existing joint products if desired.
Good Health Joint Active with Key Ingredients:
UC-II® is a patented form of natural Type II undenatured collagen, which is the main component of cartilage. It works with the immune system to help preserve joints and support the regeneration and maintenance of healthy cartilage, and works up to 2.5 times faster than common joint supplements glucosamine and chondroitin. Being undenatured, which means it is unprocessed at high temperatures, allows its biological activity to remain active, whereas regular collagen doesn’t work with the immune system. If heated and processed, it loses its immune modulating ability and the ability to protect, rebuild and repair joints. UC-II® also contains ‘epitopes’ which interact with the immune system to help trigger the deactivation of the collagen specific T-cells that cause inflammation.
Boron is a vital trace mineral that is essential for healthy bones. People with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis usually present as having a deficiency of boron.
Vitamin D3 supports optimal cartilage production. Joints receive nutrients through adjoining bones, therefore healthy bones are key for healthy joints.
*Clinical research shows that one 40g capsule per day provides significant support for joint comfort and cartilage regeneration.
