“Time to keep moving”

If there’s one good thing that resulted from the year-long lockdowns or community quarantines that came at various levels, it was to prevent the further spread of the dangerous SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes the Coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19.

Though it may have helped achieve some success in controlling the virus’ spread, it somehow contributed to having a sedentary lifestyle in many. This is because many were forced to stay home to work and learn, hence the Work From Home or Learn from Home environments. Many were not allowed to out of their homes except on emergency or essential situations.


By staying at home, working and learning while spending long hours in front of computers and digital devices, many suffered from lack of mobility or exercise that created serious impact on joints. Many were too focused on working and learning that they tend to overlook the physical aspect of their being. If mechanical stress can take its toll on the joints or specific body part of athletes and active individuals, what more on those who don’t move too much, or don’t move at all?

Even the elders were affected. Because of the lockdowns, they can’t go out for their usual morning exercises, thus contributing as well to lack of mobility of their already weakening joints.

By leading an inactive lifestyle, fewer calories are burned that may lead to obesity. It may also lead to losing muscle strength and endurance because the muscles are not used too frequently as it should, making the bones go weak and even lose mineral content that can contribute to weaker joints. Imagine not being able to, or have difficulty, climbing the stairs as you normally should, or walk along the street and experience pain that is not experienced before.

Despite the lockdown, which still continues to this day, try to allot some time to move around even if space is a bit limited. Stationary jogging, stretching of arms and legs, simple sit-ups, brisk walking around the house (or even around the dining table if there’s no lawn or backyard) can help. Just make sure to do it safely.

And to help restore and maintain healthy joints while doing mobility exercises, regenerate cartilage and collagen in the joints by taking Recogen, a safe and natural food supplement that both the young and the elderly who want to maintain healthy joints, or if suffering from joint pains, can take daily to help regenerate cartilage and collagen in their body tissues. Daily consumption shows that Recogen can promote joint cartilage regrowth and improves cartilage tissue within 48 weeks.

It contains 100-percent pure and Short Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP) from Germany. Collagen peptide are amino acids that provide structure to the body’s bones, skin, tendons and ligaments that is naturally produced by the body to connect our joints. It also contributes to improving skin elasticity and joint health, including development of muscle mass and growth.

The BCP found in Recogen contains low molecular weight to make it easily digestible and absorbed quickly into the small intestine and the bloodstream, thereby providing more benefits quickly, especially for the elderly, whose nutrition absorption is not as efficient as younger adults.

It also dissolves easily, odorless and tasteless, no sugar, contains no artificial flavors or preservatives. It is perfectly safe, with no known adverse effects and is completely allergen free.

Recogen is recommended for those suffering from osteoarthritis, skeletal deformity and abnormal joint position, inflammatory joint diseases, crystal-induced arthritis, for individuals with traumatic injuries or those who are overweight.

Best of all, Recogen is convenient and easy to drink. Just mix with water or any favorite drink (except coffee or tea because of its caffeine content) and you’re good to go and enjoy Recogen’s many benefits.

Recogen is distributed in the Philippines by Dyna Drug Corporation and available at goodwill.market/ for Php.2,900 for 30 sachets. For more information about Recogen, Dyna Drug Corp. and its other products, visit www.dynadrug.com.
