Committed to cultivate healthy eating habits among kids, BiO-LiFE took the initiative to introduce the importance of eating variety of food to 3,000 pre-schoolers at 30 kindergartens in Klang Valley.
The messages were conveyed through story-telling session with giant story book and jigsaw puzzle game. The programme were conducted in a fun mode while educating the pre-schoolers with some simple tips to practice healthy eating.
Lastly, we hope this initiative would encourage the participated pre-schooler to start practice healthy eating in their daily life. Healthy Kid, Smart Kid.
Cartilage is made up of specialized cells called chondrocytes, and it does not have any blood vessels, nerves or lymphatic. These chondrocytes produce large amounts of extracellular matrix composed of collagen fibers, proteoglycan, and elastin fibers. In normal cartilage, it is highly hydrated, being 70% - 75% water. Collagen and proteoglycans account for the remaining dry weight.
Type II collagen represents the largest group of collagen in the cartilage, which account for 90% to 95%. It helps to maintain the tensile strength of the cartilage or resist stretching force on the cartilage.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are usually found covalently linked to protein in the form of proteoglycans. The functions of proteoglycan include maintaining the hydration of the matrix, stabilizing the collagen network, and resisting the compressive forces. The main groups of GAGs which covalently attached to proteoglycan includes chondroitin sulphate, keratin sulphate, dermatan sulphate, heparan sulphate and hyaluronan.
In order to have a healthy cartilage, it is very important to maintain the correct composition of water, collagen, and proteoglycan in the cartilage. We can get sufficient of collagen and GAGs through various food and nutritional supplement intake.
