COLLAWELL Collagen Hydrolysate Complex Powder
10g x 30 sachets containing Collagen Hydrolysate, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C.
How COLLAWELL works
COLLAWELL's combination of Collagen Hydrolysate & Hyaluronic Acid works on the following:
Collagen Hydrolysate stimulates cell growth in joint cartilage. This natural substance induces the formation of new cartilage tissue and restores cartilage degradation resulting from sports activity, work-related stresses and the natural aging process. People suffering from joint problems can regain mobility and enjoy a much-improved quality of life.
Collagen hydrolysate is obtained by means of enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen, the dominant protein in mammals (from skin, bone, cartilage) to facilitate easy absorption into the blood stream.
Hyaluronic Acid helps joint problems by increasing the natural cushion within the joints and other tissue material. It works on restoring water retention for cushioning in joint and muscle tissue, and improving lubrication. With better water retention and cushioning in joints, tendons and ligaments your flexibility and mobility greatly improves and helps to recover from pain of inflammation quickly.
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG), which is a substance that attaches to collagen and elastin to form cartilage and can be derived from multiple resources and foods. HA not only helps keep the cartilage that cushions joints strong and flexible, but also helps increase supplies of joint-lubricating synovial fluid.
Both combination has extensive research and clinically studies to show that daily consumption is adequate for joint comfort and mobility.
Vitamin C is a necessary co-factor in collagen synthesis and is known to increase the production of collagen and promote the synthesis of new, healthy collagen in the body.

Do you have joints pain?
Some of the initial signs of joints pains includes:
- Swelling at the joint
- Joint stiffness
- Ache or tensions around the joints
- Grinding sound at the knee when standing up
- Difficulty moving the joint when exercising
- Joint pain during exercise
There are many causes of joint pain. Almost everyone will experience some form of joint pain or inflammation in certain period of their lives. Joint pain is a discomfort that arises from the point where two or more bones meet. Both small joints, such as those in the fingers, and large joints, such as the knee and hip, can be affected. Joint pain can be mild, causing some soreness each time you move your joint. Or joint pain can be severe, making it impossible to use your joint.
Types of Arthritis
According to The National Arthritis Foundation (NAF) in Singapore, Arthritis means the inflammation of joints. An inflamed joint is usually red, swollen, warm and painful. Arthritis is not a single condition. There are more than 120 different types of Arthritis, which may affect one or more joints in the body. Arthritis is not an old age disease. Anyone from as young as 6 months old may develop Arthritis.

Arthritis can be broadly classified into 2 main groups:
Osteoarthritis (OA) or degenerative joint disease
Inflammatory arthropathies - Rheumatoid arthritis, gout or spondyloarthropathies
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition that is caused by the combination of several factors. While it is often called 'wear-and-tear' arthritis or degenerative disease, this condition is due to more than just wearing away of the joint surface. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It usually causes pain and limited motion, and is most common in the knee joint and hip joint.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic, autoimmune condition that causes the body to attack its own soft-tissues and joints. Rheumatoid arthritis most commonly affects the joints of the hands and feet, but can also cause elbow, shoulder, and neck problems. Joint swelling is often quite pronounced in rheumatoid arthritis.
The diagnosis of RA is based on clinical examination of symptoms, patient history, as well as some blood tests. RA cannot be confirmed or excluded by any one test. The most common test is rheumatoid factor (RF). The other supporting tests are: anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (Anti-CCP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and X-ray."
Methotrexate (MTX), a DMARD (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs) has been traditionally used to treat RA. It is also the most used form of treatment in rheumatoid arthritis, especially with generic forms available. Currently, combination therapies between DMARDs and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are commonly practiced.
Among the above two types of arthiritis, Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. A form of degenerative or ‘ageing’ disease, it is more common among the elderly although young people may also suffer from it, especially if they have had a significant injury to the joint.
