Latest osteoarthritis research findings: Objective visual evidence that Recogen® promotes the regeneration of cartilage tissue. 


This has been confirmed by the results of two independent investigations which were presented in September 2009 at the congress of the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) in Montreal.  

A clinical trial performed by Harvard Medical School and Tufts Medical Center demonstrated the efficacy of Recogen® on the basis of magnetic resonance images (MRI). Working in collaboration with Kiel University, scientists at the Kiel-based Collagen Research Institute (CRI) then gathered experimental evidence of the effects of consumption of Recogen® on cartilage cells. 

Using an objective imaging technique, the Tufts researchers, led by Dr Timothy McAlindon, found a significant regeneration of the cartilage tissue in the Recogen® group, compared to normal cartilage degeneration progression in the placebo group. The CRI’s cell experiments indicated that Recogen® induces the increased synthesis of aggrecan (an important component in cartilage) and Type II collagen (which plays a key role in cartilage elasticity).

The role of Recogen® in the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis
The administration of Recogen® can prevent joint degeneration and counteract load-induced wear of the articular cartilage. Compared to other substances which focus on providing short-term pain relief, Recogen® tackles the root causes of osteoarthritis and cartilage degeneration. Previous clinical trials had already shown that the substance promotes mobility and reduces pain.

Classified as a safe nutritional product by the FDA, Recogen® is easy to synthesize. Furthermore, thanks to its neutral taste and odour, Recogen® can be easily added to the individual’s daily diet. Positive health effects can be achieved even with low doses. Recogen® is suitable for all age groups with particular benefit for athletes (competitive and amateur), elderly persons and all health-conscious individuals who want to prevent cartilage degeneration at an early stage.
