The Problem with OA (Osteoarthritis) by morgan | May 27, 2019 | Products | Arthritis is a major health problem amongst a countless number of people. One of the most common forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis, is more commonly found in adults aged over 40 years. This disease on average has an impact on the lives of every one in six people worldwide. Although anyone of any age can develop arthritis, it is more likely for people who are middle-aged to develop it. The prevalence of osteoarthritis is rising due to the number of people growing older. There is also an increase in osteoarthritis sufferers caused by other factors. For example, obesity. According to the United Nations, by 2050 people aged over 60 will make up for more than 20% of the world’s population. That is a large portion of people. Of that 20%, an estimate of 15% will have symptomatic osteoarthritis, and one-third of these people will be severely disabled. This is alarming news. Osteoarthritis can affect nearly every different joint in your body. It can have an impact on people in a number of ways, but the usual symptoms include: Swelling Inflammation Pain Stiffness Decreased range of motion. It is interesting to note that veterinarian scientists after lots of studying and research, were able to prevent and eliminate arthritis in animals. But human doctors, on the other hand, are still unable to find a suitable cure for people suffering from arthritis. It all comes down to having healthy bones and joints. The bones and joints in your body are living and growing tissue which is made from protein collagen, bone cells and minerals. There are two things that your bones are doing constantly and that is absorbing cells and then creating more bone. Throughout your life, your body is continuously repairing and creating new bone. Every 10 years, you literally become a new person. This is because it takes around 10 years for your bones to have fully rebuilt and repaired themselves. As you get older, this process may take longer. As long as your body is able to keep repairing and creating new bone, they will remain healthy and strong. The purpose of the cartilage in our joints is to act as a shock absorber. It also allows for smoother bone movement. When someone develops osteoarthritis, the cartilage in our joints breaks down and is less resistant to shock and can break down leaving the bone unprotected. In order for us to keep regenerating healthy bones and joints, we need to have the following vitamins and minerals in our body: Calcium Magnesium Phosphorous Copper Zinc Vitamin D3 In order for us to get these vitamins and minerals, we should turn to supplements as it can be hard to find these in foods nowadays. What causes our bones and joints to fail? To simply put it, our bones and joints fail due to loss of strength. It is not caused by our bodies growing from old age or whatever. It is usually because we aren’t putting the right fuel into our body in order for our bones and joints to replicate. It is like a car in a way, if you don’t oil the engine, it will seize up sooner or later.
