Osteoarthritis is a chronic condition in which the cartilage, a protective material that cushions the joints at the ends of your bones, wears out and breaks down. This causes the bones to rub directly against each other, causing inflammation and pain.
The usual first-line therapy by modern medicine such as analgesics and painkillers only provides symptomatic relieve for osteoarthritis and doesn’t address the root cause. Furthermore, it can cause the following side effects in the long run:
People tend to resort to glucosamine but is has limited effectiveness due to very poor absorption. If glucosamine enters the body, is converted into hyaluronic acid (HA) and then into proteoglycans for cartilage regeneration and lubrication. This is why you are given HA injection and there is no such thing as glucosamine injection.
The idea of using hyaluronic acid to treat osteoarthritis was originally proposed 70 years ago by Hungarian scientist Endre A. Balasz. In 2006, a team led by Nicholas Bellamy, MD, of the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, reviewed 76 studies examining the use of hyaluronic acid for treating knee osteoarthritis. The review, the largest and most comprehensive of its kind, found that pain levels in the average patient who receives these injections are reduced by 28 to 54 percent.
Hyaluronic acid injections are one treatment option doctors may offer when a patient is no longer able to control osteoarthritis pain with ibuprofen or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or the patient can’t tolerate these drugs (which can cause side effects such as stomach bleeding and kidney problems). The treatment regimen for hyaluronic acid usually involves receiving one injection in the affected joints per week for three to five weeks.
Over the course of the injections, you may notice that you have less pain in your knee. Hyaluronic acid does seem to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties which may last for several months. If the injections are effective they may be repeated after a period of time, usually between 3-6 months. The big drawback is the pain, discomfort and the high cost.
ALTERNI have worked with Palma Biotech, a leading European company in research, development and manufacturing of liposome to develop transdermal hyaluronic acid gel called AUXIFLEX.
This patent pending technology ensures high concentration of hyaluronic acid is delivered through the skin to lubricate the joints and relieve osteoarthritic pain.
No more painful and expensive HA injections! No more glucosamine capsules that may cause stomach irritation, gastritis, nausea and increase blood sugar level!
