Which Gender Should Worry More About Joint Protection, Men or Women?

by On Jan 18, 2018

The battle of the sexes? It’s been on since Adam first gave a rib to Eve. But when it comes to joint health, there’s nothing equal about risk factors. Kordel’s BiovaFlex® Egg Membrane to the rescue!

Which Gender Should Worry More About Joint Protection, Men or Women?

According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, “Women have more knee ligament injuries than men due to geometry, not gender.” Geometry? You read that right; it’s a matter of bone length over gender and plenty of research studies prove that the length and shape of women’s knee bones are the genetic culprits.

In fact, women suffering leg-related ligament injuries can compound them by using improper running techniques, wearing the wrong shoes or simply by changing direction too swiftly during extended training sessions. That’s all it takes to trigger joint issues that, if left unattended, can short circuit any woman's running career.

Sadly, women also suffer ACL injury rates “two-to-five times greater than that of men," says Dr. Audrey K. Chun of the Mt. Sinai Health System. "A single incident is enough to trigger re-injury and a lifetime of discomfort." To add insult to injury, says Chun, “women account for nearly 60% of arthritis sufferers.”

Does this mean men get a pass on joint health issues? Hardly. But biology is destiny and since God won't re-engineer women's skeletal and ligament systems anytime soon, they must take extra precautions to care for their joints and bones. That's why women can add Kordel’s BiovaFlex®Egg Membrane, a 100-percent natural product, to their diets.

In addition to the powerful egg membrane that’s packed with bioactive ingredients to improve joint functions, Kordel’s BiovaFlex® Egg Membrane is infused with a natural plant extract called Boswellin®. Extracted from Frankincense plant (Boswellia serrata), this aromatic gum resin contains Boswellic acid that has been used for centuries in Asian medicine to treat inflammatory illnesses.
