So what is osteoarthritis and which are the best collagen supplements available in Kenya, that will help reverse this condition?

Facts, symptoms, and remedies

Osteoarthritis(OA), commonly known as wear and tear or degenerative arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis. It is associated with a breakdown of cartilage in joints and can occur in almost any joint in the body. 

In a healthy joint, a coating of tough but smooth and slippery tissue, called cartilage, covers the surface of the bones and helps the bones to move freely against each other. Joint cartilage has the major function of reducing friction in the joints and serve as a “shock absorber.” This shock-absorbing quality of normal cartilage comes from its ability to change shape when compressed (flattened or pressed together). Now did you know that cartilage is primarily composed of collagen? 

When a joint develops osteoarthritis, part of the cartilage becomes worn out or damaged and the surface becomes rougher and the joint doesn’t move as smoothly as it should. All the tissues within the joint become more active than normal as the body tries to repair the damage leading to;

Extra bony growths called osteophytes may form at the edge of the joint. They may be visible especially on the finger joints as firm knobbly swellings. Lining of the joint capsule (called the synovium) may thicken and produce more fluid than normal, causing the joint to swell.

Risk factors

Age – It’s most common in women above the age of 40 though a number of men are also affected.

Genetic factors – those with a family history of osteoarthritis are at a higher risk of being affected.

Joint injury – athletes who have knee-related injuries may be at higher risk of developing osteoarthritis of the knee. In addition, people who have had a severe back injury may be predisposed to develop osteoarthritis of   the spine. People who have had a broken bone near a joint are prone to   develop osteoarthritis in that joint.

Obesity – increases the risk for osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and spine.


·         Tenderness or inflammation over the joint

·         Creaking or grating of the joint – known as crepitus

·         Bony swelling

·         Excess fluid

·         Weakness or thinning of the muscles that support the joint.

·         Stiffness

Osteoarthritis worsens over time, often resulting in chronic pain. Joint pain and stiffness can become severe enough to make daily tasks difficult. Depression and sleep disturbances can result from the pain and disability of osteoarthritis.

Lifestyle and other remedies

· Exercise – that strengthen the muscles around the affected joint,   providing it with greater support and helping it stay healthy.

· Weight loss – Weight control in those who are overweight is one thing you   can do to improve symptoms and even slow progression

· Massage therapy – The massage therapist lightly strokes or kneads the sore muscles, which can stimulate blood flow and make a stressed area   become more warm and relaxed.

· Eating anti- inflammatory foods like whole grains, fish and other healthy   fats.

Best collagen supplements for joints in Kenya: Collagen with Magnesium

The question that comes to mind therefore is, how do the supplements work? Cartilage is mainly composed of  Collagen. Our bodies have the capability to repair the worn out cartilage over time. However, we don’t produce enough collagen to facilitate this process as we age. This leads to wear and tear (degeneration) commonly referred to as Osteoarthritis, with the above outlined symptoms.

By replenishing your collagen levels, you give your body the tools to start the repair process of the worn out cartilage naturally. As the cartilage regenerates, the pain reduces and the joint starts to be more and more flexible. So why are these the best collagen supplements for you? They include Magnesium, which increases the body’s ability to absorb collagen. Other benefits of Magnesium include its anti-inflammatory properties, reducing insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes as well as fighting depression and migraines.

Patients taking our 2 in 1 Collagen with Magnesium, usually report significant improvement (reduced pain and improved movement in the affected joint after 2 to 3 weeks of taking. Total recovery depends on the severity of an individual case but it can be as early as one month.
