Can Chicken and Pig Feet really help on Joint Health?

When you have the problems of joint stiffness, pain or swelling, especially when walking stairs or waking up in the morning, these may be the signals of getting joint degeneration. Joint degeneration is not limited to seniors, young adults may also be in the high risk group, especially for those who are obese, blue-collar workers, long-time squatting or standing at work, or having joint injury before. If you want to maintain good joint health and still be energetic in your later life, you have to protect your joints from this day onwards. 


Are Chicken and pig feet good for joint health?

Collagen supplements are well known that help maintaining joint health. Collagen exists in different forms throughout the body, Collagen Type 1 is widely found in ligaments, skin, blood vessel walls, teeth and hard bones; while cartilages are mainly Collagen Type 2 that helps to maintain the elasticity and structure of cartilage tissue. Therefore, adequate intake of Collagen Type 2 can repair cartilage, and maintain high tensile strength to avoid erosion or destruction of joints.

Some people may consider chicken feet and pig feet as collagen supplement. Although animal skin is rich in collagen, they are not exactly collagen Type 2 and mostly they contain high saturated fat and high cholesterol, salt content is also very high after cooking. Frequent consumption of chicken feet and pig feet may increase the risk of suffering from 3-High and excessive calories intake can easily result in obesity. In fact, sea cucumbers, Jew’s ear, yam, sea-tangle are also rich in collagen and they are healthier choices. Meanwhile, fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamin C which can assist collagen synthesis in body efficiently.


Regular exercise delays joint degeneration

In addition, adults should carry out 30-minute moderate aerobic exercise 5 times a week e.g. swimming, jogging, cycling, dancing, etc., Exercise not only helps control weight, but also helps strengthen muscles and bones, especially the leg muscles. Maintaining good tensile strength and stability in joints can delay joint degeneration. Those who suffer from degenerative joint problems are recommended for swimming to reduce pressure in joints when exercising.

Common nutrition for joints

In addition to collagen, there are different nutrients that also help maintain good joint health. It is recommended that natural, clinically proven active ingredients should be chosen for improving joint health.

1. Cetylated Fatty Acid

An unique fatty acid complex presents in animals. It relieves pain, swelling and joint discomfort and also help restore synovial fluid, reduce erosion of cartilage and alleviate joint degeneration.

2. Chondroitin

It can activate the production of cartilage in joints and also help reduce the activity of cartilage degrading enzymes to slow down erosion. Depolymerized Chondroitin can be effectively absorbed by the body.

3. Hyaluronic Acid.

It reduces synovial fluid losses and stimulates regeneration of joint lubricating fluid and cartilage protection to delay joint aging.

4. Ocean Fish Oil

Omega 3 can reduce joint pain and discomfort. Fish oil from unpolluted small ocean fish (such as anchovies, mackerel, sardines) should be chosen.

5. Glucosamine

Glucosamine Hydrochloride has a higher absorption rate than Glucosamine Sulfate for better maintenance of joint structure.
