background reading

Helping the body to make cartilage
A large range of motion and the demands of constant use can damage the cartilage of the joints. Age, sports and accidents can lead to similar damage. Repetitive motions and everyday wear-and-tear contribute to joint problems. If stress and inflammation continue long enough, blood vessels will penetrate the cartilage and further weaken the joint tissue.

Cartilage is very tough and resilient, but it is even slower than bone in its rate of repair and replacement. It is also important to recognize that relieving the symptoms of injury to cartilage may not be synonymous with repair. The use of aspirin, ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) will relieve the inflammation, but these do nothing to encourage joint repair. In fact, NSAIDs can actually accelerate the degenerative process.

Damage to joint cartilage is more likely to lead to long term problems than is damage to muscle tissue. This is largely because the cartilage does not have a direct supply of blood and cannot be quickly repaired. Joints are particularly vulnerable because the needs for their repair often outstrip the body’s ability to produce new cartilage.

Chondrocytes are cells responsible for the repair and regeneration of cartilage tissues, both its removal when damaged and its synthesis.
Enzymes produced by the chondrocytes tear down cartilage, just as proteoglycans synthesized by the chondrocytes renew cartilage.
Both steps are necessary for joint health and a balance needs to be maintained. On one hand, the destructive process is accelerated by inflammation and injury. On the other hand, the process of synthesis is heavily dependent upon adequate nutrition, which is slowed with advancing age.

The key limiting step on the synthetic side is production of glucosaminoglycans (GAGs), for which glucosamine is the basic building block. Glucosamine is often referred to as a “chondroprotective agent.” This means that glucosamine protects cartilage.
Glucosamine, however, does not act alone. Other nutrients must be available in adequate amounts if it is to be used efficiently in the synthesis of cartilage.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a biological form of sulfur that has generated broad anecdotal support for its benefits in promoting a healthy inflammation response.
Sulfur is required for the repair and maintenance of joint tissues and the construction of connective tissues more generally. This is also one mechanism often given for the use of glucosamine sulfate as the preferred form of glucosamine for optimal joint support. Sulfur, moreover, is especially important for the body’s production of the chondroitin sulfates, which act to maintain the proper water levels and, therefore, the cushioning properties of cartilage in joint tissue.
Supplementing with MSM ensures that the body has adequate amounts of sulfur for promoting healthy joint tissues.

Many years ago this trace mineral was suggested as being useful for joint integrity due to its ability to improve the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans, i.e., mucopolysaccharides. By the time the Sixth Edition of Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease was published in 1980, it had been established that manganese occupies a primary role in mucopolysaccharide production in the body. It is important for the production of synovial fluid as well as for the production of cartilage.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin, effectively moves into the synovial fluid and helps control reactive oxygen species and free radicals. This is not the only use of vitamin C in the joints. The synthesis of procollagen from collagen requires both vitamin C and manganese for its completion. Both glucosamine and procollagen are precursors for the body’s synthesis of the GAGs. Since moving from procollagen to true collagen requires the presence of vitamin C, vitamin C acts in conjunction with glucosamine and manganese to support cartilage health.

Vitamin D3
The inclusion of an active form of vitamin D in Jarrow Formulas Joint Builder® is intended to help normalize calcium levels and improve the integrity of the bones to which the cartilage is attached.

After banning HCQ and ivermectin, Big Pharma now wants to ban NAC as well? 

Much to my amazement, I was approached by a US citizen a bit over a week ago with the question whether we still had N-A-C in stock, and whether she could buy it from us. Unknown to us, the sale of N-A-C as an OTC supplement had been quietly banned by FDC in the USA with the result, it couldn't be found anywhere. Within a few days, we sold out every single bottle of the more popular choice, the sustained release NAC Sustain. 
I soon learnt this ban could be implemented thanks to the former status of NAC as a prescription drug in the 1960s which was lifted in the 1990s when it became available as a nutritional supplement.  
Why on earth can this simple low-cost amino acid be of interest to the pharmaceutical industry? 
The first thought that came to my and other people's mind was that it must have to do with the increased popularity of NAC during the COVID-pandemic. 
It was obvious to everyone who closely followed the information that was put out by the good doctors at Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care in which they showed that the research done to discredit two dirt cheap drugs HCQ and ivermectin was flawed in an effort to ban cheap drugs that would hinder the process to develop a highly profitable vaccine. 

Can vitamin D help combat infectious diseases like COVID-19?

Most people know how important vitamin D is to maintain good bone health, but less well known is how it improves immune health. 
Until recently that is, when a study was published about hospital patients with COVID-19 were treated with a special form of vitamin D (calcifediol, which is how vitamin D looks like once it is converted in the liver, which may take up to a week).
The difference in outcome was quite remarkable: there was only one casualty among patients that were treated and far fewer had to be transferred to intensive care. Since then there's been a vastly increased interest for vitamin D supplementation.
We decided to dig a little further and found compelling evidence for its efficacy. Actually the evidence has been around for several years already, but was slow to trickle down to the general public (or physicians). 
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many people are wondering how to keep themselves healthy. You know that social distancing, working from home and staying inside in general is one way to protect yourself, but are there other measures you can take?
Boosting your immune system is one of the best things you can do because it is your body's key defense when it comes to fighting a virus. Even if you are exposed to a virus, the coronavirus COVID-19 or others, if your immune system is strong, you have a better chance of not getting sick. 
Vitamin C is a popular choice for supporting immunity, but another key nutrient for your immune system is vitamin D. 
It turns out that vitamin D, is every bit as important as its vitamin C or other antioxidants whenever the immune system is under attack, like during a cold or flu.
Here’s how this underestimated vitamin can help boost immunity and fight viral infections.

Plastics in our body

Only fairly recently we have become aware of the dangers of plastics in our environment.
For a long time we thought these plastics would not be of any concern to us. However, invariably, most plastics end up somewhere in the environment: they sit at the bottom of the sea, mix into beach sand, and blow in the wind. They’re also inside us.

It's possible that humans may be consuming anywhere from 39 to 52 thousand microplastic particles a year. With added estimates of how much microplastic might be inhaled, that number is more than 74 thousand.
People who drink only bottled water ingest an additional 90 thousand particles.

When researchers from Johns Hopkins looked at the impact of eating seafood contaminated with microplastics, they too found the accumulated plastic could damage the immune system and upset a gut's balance.

Scientists are scrambling to understand the dose at which microplastics start to have noticeable health effects. Like air pollution or harmful construction materials, those who have more exposure or pre-existing conditions may be less able to tolerate plastic.

Is 5G safe enough?

In the last few months, we've been bombarded with news about whether or not to cooperate with Huawei in the creation of a 5G-network, due to fear of being spied upon by the Chinese government.
However, it is rare to see concerns being spoken about the possible health effects of introducing a 5G-network, which is necessary in order to create the ability for the 'Internet of Things' (IoT).

What is 5G?

5G, also known as 5th generation mobile networks or wireless systems, is considered the next phase in mobile technology. These wireless systems are the transmitters that carry signals to our cell phones and other wireless devices.

While the public isn’t operating on 5G yet, it’s anticipated that over the next decade, most wireless carriers will shift to 5G technology. This transition is expected to bring better coverage, lower battery consumption, faster Internet connection speeds, and the ability to support a growing market of products other than phones and tablets that feature wireless integration.

Return to sports after knee surgery, is it possible?

Whether you are a top athlete or an amateur, it will happen to you do one day or later: you will have a sports injury.
One of the most common dramatic sports injuries is a torn anterior cruciate ligament, abbreviated to ACL.

When you tear your anterior cruciate ligament or ACL your knee swells with blood. When the knee swells, that triggers a cascade of events which causes you to lose quadriceps strength. In addition you will notice that your thigh looks a lot smaller than the other one. That is due to atrophy of the quadriceps which occurs after an ACL injury.

In addition to the loss of quadriceps strength and atrophy which accompanies an ACL tear you will also notice loss of motion and in most cases a fair amount of pain.

Many athletes choose to have ACL surgery to improve their chance of returning to the same level of performance as they had before.
The sad reality is that many athletes can not return to sports after ACL surgery. The reasons for this vary. As such, there is a lot of research taking place to improve your chance for a successful return to sports after an ACL reconstruction.

But first the question whether ACL surgery should be done.

Glucosamine for healthy joints and gut

Glucosamine is a compound naturally found within the cartilage of our joints, made from chains of sugars and proteins bound together. It acts as one of the body’s natural shock-absorbents and joint lubricants, allowing us to move around without joint, bone and muscle pains.

Glucosamine possesses natural anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. One of the most popular supplements taken by people with bone and joint pain, glucosamine aids in treating common symptoms of age-related disorders like arthritis and osteoarthritis.
It can also help improve digestion and gut health, mobility, range of motion and general joint health, even in healthy people who have no chronic joint or bowel disorders.

Without glucosamine, everyday movements and tasks would be very difficult and painful. The body needs glucosamine for the synthesis of certain proteins and fats that form various important tissues, especially cartilage. This plays an important part in the construction of our joints, tendons and ligaments. In addition, it helps form the (synovial) fluids that surround joints and provide lubrication.
Glucosamine also serves an important role in microbial health. It helps form connective tissue that make up parts of the digestive tract, a system that helps the immune system function.

Why are we so much less flexible when we age?

We cannot stop but smile at how adorable babies and toddlers look when they move: they may be clumsy but their little bodies can bend as if they have no bones to stop their amazing range of motion. The reason is these toddlers have a very high amount of collagen in their joints.
