joint discomfort and pain (osteoarthritis)

HYGEE CH+ is particularly suitable as a nutritional supplement for the prevention and treatment of diseases associated with the wear and tear of articular cartilage.

Human joints are composed of cartilage, joint capsule, synovial fluid and ligaments. Articular cartilage is mainly composed of collagen fibers (59%), proteoglycans and chondrocytes.

Cartilage is a smooth, elastic tissue, like a resilient rubber pad, that covers and protects the joints at the caudal ends of long bones. It is a kind of elastic connective tissue formed by chondrocytes using collagen, protein and sugar. Collagen is the main protein component in cartilage connective tissue.

Collagen can bind substances in body tissues and help stabilize the structure. Like a scaffold, it is important for maintaining the stability of cartilage structure. When articular cartilage is lost through injury, aging, or long-term inflammation, the collagen matrix of the cartilage decreases and deteriorates. It becomes thinner, loses its elasticity and strength, and ceases to perform its shock-absorbing function. This means joint movement can cause friction between bone surfaces. Friction can damage bones and lead to lesions such as osteoarthritis, which can cause pain and discomfort.

HYGEE CH+ provides immediate and readily available specific nutrients (amino acids inherent to collagen) that are used by the specialized chondrocytes that give rise to this tissue (chondrocytes) to carry out their functions. Scientific studies have proven that the presence of collagen hydrolyzate stimulates chondrocytes, which regenerate cartilage tissue by synthesizing (producing) joint collagen and other cartilage components (proteoglycan and hyaluronic acid).

Clinically, this leads to a significant reduction in joint pain (osteoarthritis), which usually occurs between 1 and 3 months of taking 10 grams of HYGEE CH+ per day. The benefits of taking collagen hydrolyzate for joint cartilage are backed by rigorous clinical trials and other scientific studies which can be viewed on this website.
