Musculoskeletal disorders are among the most common diseases affecting the world and especially athletes or the elderly.
What is the musculoskeletal system
Musculoskeletal system consists of muscles, bones, joints, tendons and ligaments and its physiological role is movement and stabilization of body. Modern lifestyle, inadequate exercise, accidents and autoimmune diseases that lead to weakening of the musculoskeletal system, result in various pathological conditions that reduce quality of life and health of individuals. Among the most common diseases are:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Muscle fractures
Joints are made up of bones, cartilage and synovial fluid, which reduce friction and optimize joint movement.
In particular, cartilage is a soft elastic film that covers bones involved in joints and it can be compressed, absorbing high loads and severe vibration at the joint moves. It consists of collagen, water, chondrocytes, elastin and proteoglycans. Around the cartilage there is the synovial fluid, which consists of hyaluronic acid, collagenases, proteinases and lubricin. Reduced production of synovial fluid or damage in cartilages leads to inflammation and difficulty in movement due to friction and damages.
Joints and muscular system
However, joints need also a strong muscular system, in ordwer to function properly. People who have been forced to be immobilized for a certain period of time or even older people who do not move or exercise enough, may have sarcopenia. Sarcopenia is the reduction of muscle mass and strength, that leads to reduced functionality and mobility.
Kinisis Progen is a nutritional supplement that contains all the necessary elements that strengthen cartilages, tendons and joints, while also strengthen musculoskeletal system.
It contains a complex of hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate (HC15 complex), bioactive peptides of collagen, uric acid and vitamin C.
The HC15 complex provides hyaluronic acid to the joints that enrich synovial fluid in a way that maximizes hyaluronic acid absorption. Chondroitin sulfate enhances the production of cartilages from the joints while also helps body cells to produce hyaluronic acid.
Bioactive collagen peptides stimulate the synthesis of collagen in articular cartilage, ligaments and tendons that are affected by degenerative diseases or injuries.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin with anti-inflammatory effects, which contributes to normal collagen production in the body while enhancing bone health.
Finally, ursolic acid, which is natural ingredients found in fruits and herbs (apples, berries, plums, basil, oregano, thyme), has been proven to stem the genes involved in muscle atrophy, boosting muscle mass and strength.
In Vita4you you can find Kinisis Progen in order to strengthen your musculoskeletal system.
