Joints are responsible for our mobility. Hence we should take care of our joints. They are connective tissue between bones. If you feel pain in joints, it means that it will reduce mobility. If you do not take care, it will develop into a big problem.
Those who suffer from joint pain are usually overweight people, injury-laden people and older people. According to Webmd, conditions that cause joint pains are: strains, gout, sprains, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis and other injuries.
How To Treat Joint Pain
Some studies say that the best way to prevent joint pain is to consume gelatin on regular basis. Gelatin is a protein that is obtained by boiling down animal products and contains collagen, that also helps from cartilage and bone.
Collagen allows the bones to be elastic as it is a fibrous protein that helps to strengthen the body’s connective tissues.
During the aging process, your body reduces the production of collagen, so individual collagen fibers become increasingly cross-linked with each other.
However, Gelatin has the capability to treat osteoarthritis and osteoporosis and aid in the recovery of stress-related injuries due to its collagen content.
Chris D’Adamo, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore and an integrative medical specialist, suggests that “gelatin reduces arthritis pain, probably because it’s just ground-up cartilage.”
A study,One 2000 conducted on 175 patients and found that gelatin helps to improve some conditions. People who suffer from
osteoarthritis were given supplements of gelatin on daily basis, such as calcium and vitamin C.
Researchers found that gelatin supplementation helped patients to improve stiffness in joints, reduce pain levels and mobility.
According to Sean S. McCarthy, MS, from the Center for Clinical and Lifestyle Research in Shrewsburry, Mass: “This suggests that gelatin supplementation has the potential to improve knee function during activities that cause high amounts of stress on the joint”.
