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.

* 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

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.

*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.

*Enhances the release of hGH
*It also helps in increasing the production of collagen
*As a component of collagen, it can assist with would healing, skin problem, arthritis and connective tissues problems
*Found in high concentrations in the connective tissues, arginine is a component of collagen that plays a vital    role in the production of new tissue and bone cells

L-Glutamic Acid
*Used therapeutically for arthritis
*Helps transportation of  potassium across the blood-brain barrier, for future treatment of neurological conditions, ulcers, hypoglycemic come, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, Parkinson's and mental retardation. 
*The fluid produced by the prostate gland also contains amounts of glutamic acid, and may play a role in the normal function of the prostate.

*Supplies additional creatine to muscles and is used to construct DNA and RNA. It functions in the skin, connective tissues, the central nervous system and prostate.

*It is needed for treatment of allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, anemia and in the production of RBC and WBC
*Aids in tissue repair in the joints, where it helps to maintain flexibility
*Helps to protect body from damage caused by radiation and removing heavy metals from the body
*People with a shortage of gastric juices or suffering from indigestion, may benefit from this nutrient

*Helps to treat osteoporosis, arthritis and sport injuries. 
*hydroxylysine hastens the growth of reparative tissue and and ubrication of joints. Additionally, it supports *Helps muscle growth, hair health and weight management

*Hydroxyproline is necessary for the construction of the body's major structural protein, collagen.
*Defects in collagen synthesis lead to easy bruising, internal bleeding, breakdown of connective tissue of the ligaments and tendons, and increased risk to blood vessel damage.

*promote muscle recovery after physical exercise and on its own it is needed for the formation of hemoglobin as well as assisting with regulation of blood sugar levels as well as energy levels.
*Involved in blood-clot formation.

*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.

*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.

*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

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

*Aids in the production of collagen and heals cartilage
*Strengthens joints, tendons, connective tissue, cartilage and heart muscles

*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

*Important for formation o collagen and elastin

*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

*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.
