formula combines the positive effective of Collagen Type II therapy
with the amino acid L-proline. It is not one of Lakota's legendary,
traditional Native American formulas, but a cost effective, modern
day formulation from for those of you suffering from joint cartilage
The Lakota Rheumatoid
Osteo formula was specifically desiged to address the needs of
those suffering primarily from rheumatoid arthritis, but people
suffering from osteo arthritis should also think about using Collagen
Type II for their joint health.
What is Collagen
Type II ? Collagen Type II is derived from chicken sternum
cartilage and has been scientifically proven to help arthritic
(especially rheumatoid) patients rebuild damaged joints, cartilage
and tendons. Collagen Type II is far more effective for rebuilding
joint cartilage than Chondroitin Sulphate which only contains
Collagen Type I. Furthermore, Collagen Type I does not work near
as effectively on immune-system-related forms of arthritis (i.e.
rheumatoid arthritis) as Collagen Type II does.
What is L-proline
? L-proline is the primary amino acid found in cartilage.
It aids in maintaining and producing cartilage and helps strengthen
joints, cartilage, connective tissue and tendons.
How does Collagen
Type II Work ? Collagen Type II naturally stabilizes the body’s
immune system and helps neutralize the production of abnormal
molecular structures thought to be a major cause of joint misery,
deformation, and stiffness, ESPECIALLY in rheumatoid arthritis
Collagen Type II
also provides the raw materials for human cartilage which can
be beneficial for both osteo and rheumatoid arthritis. Unlike
many pharmaceutical products that offer only symptomatic relief,
Collagen Type II not only reduces pain and inflammation, but also
directly combats arthritis by aiding in the normal repair and
regeneration of cartilage, ligaments and tendons, as well as helping
to improve connective tissue elasticity and cushioning.
Are there any
side effects or stomach discomfort associated with Collagen Type
II? No significant side effects or discomfort of any kind
have been reported from Collagen Type II users.
Is there research
that validates the positive effects of Collagen Type II ?
Yes. Collagen Type II was thoroughly tested in a major double
blind controlled study at Harvard Medical School. The results
of this study were published in the prestigious medical journal,
Science. The article was entitled, Effects of Oral Administration
of Type II Collagen on Rheumatoid Arthritis. This study proved
conclusively that Collagen Type II improved all of the major clinical
symptoms of severe joint misery in those suffering from RA.
Can I take
Collagen Type II with my other medications ? Yes. Collagen
Type II is completely safe and natural and should not interfere
with other medications you may be taking. However, Lakota recommends
that you inform your pharmacist or physician before starting Collagen
Type II therapy if you are being treated for chronic health problems
with prescription medications.
How long does
it take for Collagen Type II to work ? The effects of Collagen
Type II therapy are cumulative and long lasting. Many users report
joint relief benefits within 14 days. For others it can take up
to 6 weeks before they experience significant results. Collagen
Type II helps the body heal itself, so the time it takes to experience
results will vary with each individual.
