Arthritis 關節炎


What is arthritis?
It's usually affect area around joints, such as muscles and tenons. Some can even affect other part of body, including the skin and internal organs. There are many types of arthritis. Most forms of arthritis are chronic, which means they may last a lifetime.

Symptom of arthritis...
It's varies from person to person. Some people, may have only a few joints affected with small impact. But in other people, some may affected the entire body system.
The joints of the body are sites of much of the action in arthritis. Many types of arthritis show signs of joint inflammation : swelling, stiffness, tenderness, redness or warmth. These joint symptoms may be accompanied by weight loss, fever or weakness.

Pain from arthritis may be caused by swelling, joint damage, muscle tightness or spasm and it can be ongoing or can come and go.
* Occurs when you're moving or after you have been still for some time.
* May feel stiff and difficult to move
* Hard to do those daily tasks that you used to do easily, such as climbing stairs or opening a jar
* Pain and stiffness may be severe during certain times of the day or after you've done certain tasks

Causes of arthritis?
Most of the causes is unknown, as there are more than 100 different types of arthritis. According to research and studies, the major factors can play in certain types of arthritis which includes:
* Genetic factors
* What happens to you during your life
* How you live
* Overweight





Types of arthritis?
Arthritis most commonly affects areas in or around joints. Joints are parts of the body where bones meet, such as your knees. The ends of the bones are covered by cartilage, a spongy material that acts as a shock absorber to keep bones from rubbing together. The joint is enclosed in a capsule called the synovium. The synovium's lining releases a slippery fluid that helps the joint move smoothly and easily. Muscles and tendons support the joint and help you move. Different types of arthritis can affect one or more parts of a joint. This often result in a change of shape and alignment in the joints.

i) Osteoarthritis
*Most common type
*Affects many of us as we grow older
*Sometimes called degenerative arthritis because it involves the breakdown of cartilage and bones.
  Usually affects the fingers and weight-bearing joints including the knees, feet, hips and back
*Affects both men and women, and usually occurs after the age 45
*Causes pain and stiffness

ii) Rheumatoid arthritis
*A fault in the body's defense or immune system causes inflammation or swelling. Inflammation begins in the       joint lining and then damages both cartilage and bone              
*Often affects the same joints on both sides of body. Hand , wrists, feet, knees, ankles, shoulders and elbows  can be affected.
*Commonly affects woman

iii) Gout
*Results when the body is unable to get rid of a natural substance called uric acid.
*Uric acid forms needle-like crystals in the joints that cause severe pain and swelling.
*Usually affects the big toe, knees and wrists
*Commonly happen on men than women

iv) Low Back Pain
*Result from a back injury
*occurs at any age in both men and women


How "Naturion Collagen" benefits for arthritis?
New scientific research found out that increment of hGH level in our body will enhance the formation of collagen of our body including the skin and joints. As we know, the level of hGH will decrease when we get older, but with the help from 18 Amino-acids, we can enhance the releasing of hGH in our body and to improve arthritis problem.

L-Alanine
*Increase the muscular strength and power
*To boost the anaerobic in a person and make the person strong and improves the ability to exercise well without getting fatigue early.
*It's helps to reduce the cholesterol
*When deamination of alanine occurs, it results in production of alkyl free radical which has lead to its use in the radiotherapy.

L-Arginine
*Enhances the release of hGH
*It also helps in increasing the production of collagen

*Repair muscles, regulate blood sugar and provide the body with energy. It also increases production of growth hormones, and helps burn visceral fat.
*Increased glucose supplies prevent the body's cannibalization of muscle for energy during intense workouts.
*Healing of bones, skin, and muscle tissue after traumatic injury
*Helps to regulate blood sugar by converted to glucose produces symptoms similar to those of hypoglycemia, which may include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, depression, confusion and irritability.

L-Lysine
*Enhances the release of hGH
*Help in collagen formation
*Help body absorb calcium and decreases the amount of calcium that is lost in urine.
*Regular taking lysine may prevent outbreaks of cold sores and genital herpes. It has anti viral effects by blocking the activity or arginine, which promotes HSV replication.

L-Methionine
*Enhances digestive system and removing heavy metals from body as detoxifying from the liver
*Helps to heal depression, arthritis pain as well as chronic liver disease

L-Phenylalanine
*It has been proposed to treat depression, symptoms of phenylalanine deficiency include confusion, lack of energy,decreased alertness, memory problems and lack of appetite.

*Strengthens joints, tendons, connective tissue, cartilage and heart muscles

L-Serine
*Help to rebuild metabolism of fat, tissue growth and the  immune system
*It's a constituent of brain proteins and nerve coverings and is also important in the formation of cell membranes

L-Threonine
*Important for formation o collagen and elastin

L-Tyrosine
*It is a precursor of the neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine, all of them extremely important in the brain and transmits nerve impulses and prevents depression. Dopamine is also vital to mental function and seems to play a role in sex drive.
*Help inn suppressing the appetite and reducing body fat, production of skin and hair pigment, the proper functioning of the thyroid as well as the pituitary and adrenal gland

L-Valine
*stimulate muscle metabolism, repair and growth of tissue and maintaining the nitrogen balance in the body


Arthritis Q & A :


Why do joints make popping and cracking noises?
Joints can make different noises, as some are serious and some are not.
Some people learn how to "pop their knuckles". By pushing or pulling a joint in a certain way, an air bubble can suddenly appear in the joint with a "pop". Once the bubble is there the joint cannot be popped again until the air has been reabsorbed.
Some joints crack as the ligaments and tendons that pass over them slide past bumps on the bones. Individuals who "crack their neck" make noise in this way.
Joints that are arthritis may crack and grind. These noises usually occur each time the joint is moved. This noise is due to the roughness of the joint surface to loss of the smooth cartilage.

Can cracking knuckles cause arthritis?
There is no evidence that cracking one's knuckles can cause arthritis directly. However, repeated injury of a joint or repeatedly causing it to swell can injure the cartilage and potentially lead to degenerative joint disease.

關節炎問與答

為什麼關節
會發生彈出打擊的聲音
關節會發打擊的聲音因為有些嚴重,有些則不是
有些人學習如何“彈出自己的關節以某種方式聯合或拉氣泡突然出現“砰砰”聲音一旦泡沫聯合不能被彈出,直到空氣重新吸收
有些關節打擊超過他們過去的顛簸骨頭上的韌帶和肌腱通過噪音
關節炎關節可能打擊研磨這些噪聲通常每個關節移動發生這種噪聲由於關節面光滑的軟骨損失粗糙度


開裂關節導致關節炎
沒有任何證據,打擊一個人的關節可以直接導致關節炎然而,反复損傷聯合多次造成膨脹傷害軟骨可能導致退行性骨關節病
