Keeping people pain-free and boosting recovery time after exercise, especially in middle age, is a crucial battle in the fight to promote healthy ageing among Asia Pacific’s rapidly ageing population.

That was the key takeaway from the video interview with Gencor MD RV Venkatesh, filmed at our recent Healthy Ageing APAC Summit in Singapore.

In the video, Venkatesh highlights the inflammation and recovery benefits of its curcumin HydroCurc products, as well as the anti-inflammatory credentials of its Levagen palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) ingredient.

PEA is  an endogenous fatty acid produced by the human body as a first responder to stress and injury. It is known as an anti-inflammatory compound and pain reliever that protects against muscle deterioration.

Venkatesh reveals how in a recent study,  researchers administered either a 300mg or 600mg dose or placebo to osteoarthritis suffers daily for eight weeks.

Subsequently, the supplemented participants saw significantly greater pain relief than thosewho has undertaken 24 or 42 week studies where they took chondroitin or glucosamine.

Watch the video to find out more about the firm’s forthcoming research priorities, and how it strives to help its customers communicate the need for consumers to take healthy ageing seriously from a young age.
