Men, Joint Pain, and Collagen

As any guy can tell you, joint pain becomes a feature of everyday life as you age. So many of the sports and physical activities that used to be easy aren’t quite so simple anymore. So what’s going on in your late 30s, 40s and 50s? Moving around isn’t a pain-free experience anymore; do you even remember what life was like before joint pain?

Even fit, active men might not remember the last time they didn't groan when crouching down or think twice before getting down on their hands and knees to find that missing sock under the bed. At some point, whether you truly noticed or not, the fun of rec league sports, or the joy of kicking the ball around with your kids might have become less attractive due to the pain and strain on your joints. Suddenly those ridiculous gardening knee pads are looking less and less absurd every season.

So why is this happening?

Your joints aren't quite as resilient as you age, especially after 35. And after a lifetime of sports, yard work, and perhaps carrying around an extra 30 pounds, the cartilage in your joints might not be up to that much constant shock and pressure. It’s called wear and tear.

One of the main reasons for your joints throwing in the towel is osteoarthritis - a degenerative and inflammatory joint disease. It’s the most common form of arthritis around the world and usually effects your hands, knees, hips, and spine; you know, those body parts you use to do basically everything.

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in your joints degenerates, causing your bones to rub against each other. This causes inflammation, which causes pain, stiffness and immobility.

Cartilage is your body's shock absorber. Without it, every step would be excruciating and lifting your arm over your shoulder becomes a distant memory. 

DeepMarine Collagen can help.

Feel the end of your nose. That's cartilage. It’s firm, durable and flexible, right? It's tough stuff and your body keeps it strong by producing a huge amounts of a protein called collagen. Collagen isn't just for resilient, smooth skin; collagen is what creates the structural framework for almost all of your body's tissues. Your body makes more collagen than any other protein. In fact, in a 70 kg man, 2.2 kgs of the body mass will be collagen. The problem is, as you age, your natural collagen production declines and that’s why tissues weaken.

Studies have shown that taking marine collagen peptides, like those found in DeepMarine Collagen, helps to increase your natural collagen production inside your cartilage tissues. This regenerates lost collagen molecules and restores your joint movement. With a proper joint structure in place, there’s nothing to cause throbbing joint pain.

But even before DeepMarine begins to regenerate your cartilage, it gets to work reducing inflammation.

One of the major structural parts of a collagen peptide is something called Glycine. Glycine is an amino acid with anti-inflammatory properties. If you’re dealing with inflammation anywhere, from your joints to your bowels, Glycine will help with that.

DeepMarine peptides are three to five times smaller than all other collagen supplements available. Smaller peptides are more easily and efficiently absorbed by your body, getting to where they’re needed faster, and in greater numbers.

The causes and symptoms of aging are something science is learning more and more about every day. In the past, we may have resigned ourselves to our pain and pain killers, or to corrective surgery. But DeepMarine Collagen offers another way. With DeepMarine supplements, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, you won’t hesitate before bending down to pick something off the floor.

Imagine, getting back to pain-free movement again.
