Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis


Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. It is a degenerative disease commonly referred as “wear and tear” arthritis. It occurs most frequently at the weight-bearing joints such as the knee, hips, and the hands.

With OA, the cartilage within a joint begins to break down and the underlying bones begin to rub, leading to wear and tear. These changes usually develop slowly and get worse over time.

There are four stages of osteoarthritis:

Stage 1-MinorMinor wear-and-tear in the jointsLittle or no pain in the affected area
Stage 2- MildMore noticeable bone spursIntermittent pain and stiffness
Stage 3 – ModerateCartilage in the affected area begins to erodeModerate pain and stiffness. May begin to affect mobility and daily routines.
Stage 4 – SevereThe patient is in a lot of painSevere pain, stiffness and, in some cases, inflammation. Some may no longer be able to do daily tasks or work.

A check-up with your physician for detailed diagnosis is recommended if you are concerned.
Osteoarthritis is most common with aging, obesity, professional sports, injuries, stress and overwork.

Pain-relieving medications

Most common medications include Acetaminophen, Capsaicin, menthol and others.
Steroid treatment and or Surgery may become necessary for severe cases.
Most existing treatment methods for osteoarthritis are however palliative (providing temporary relief only)

Urah Micellar Joint Health plus Omega3 is recommended for Minor to Mild stages of osteoarthritis.
Urah Micellar Joint Health plus Chondroitin is recommended for Moderate to Severe stages of osteoarthritis.

What is Osteoporosis?

The word “osteoporosis” is from the Greek terms for “porous bones”. Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disorder characterized by low bone mass, micro-architectural deterioration of bone tissue leading to bone fragility, and consequent increase in fracture risk. It is the most common reason for a broken bone among the elderly

Osteoporosis is caused by the imbalance between the natural process of new bone formation and old bone loss. Bone density decrease is a result of insufficient or low bone formation compared to the natural rate of bone loss.

The leading cause of osteoporosis:

  • hormonal imbalance, particularly estrogen in women and androgen in men.
  • Menopause is accompanied by lower estrogen levels
  • Inadequate intake of calcium and vitamin D
  • Lack of weight-bearing exercise

Prevention & Palliative Measures

  • Eating dairy products like milk, cheese and yoghurt in addition to regular physical activity
  • Nutrients in dairy foods including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, protein and
  • Vitamin D work together to help build and protect bones

Why You Need To Avoid Calcium Supplements

Many research reports have shown that those who took oral calcium supplements regularly were more likely to have a heart attack than those who did not.

High oral calcium intake does not necessarily lead to bone formation, but rather concentrates in the blood and gets excreted in the urine, increasing the risk of kidney stones.

Calcium is best absorbed from dietary sources because dietary calcium normally comes with the necessary vitamins and elements in suitable proportions for synergistic bio-formation of bone cells.
