Q: Is EVA effective in relieving joint pain? 

A: According to the Arthritis Society there are more than 100 types of arthritis, the most common of which is osteoarthritis (OA).  By age 70, about 8 out of 10 Canadians will have OA.  OA is a result of the weakening and/or wearing down of the joint.  The cartilage cushion between bones becomes thinner and doesn’t protect the ends of the bones as well as it should.  Joint fluids are not present like in a healthy joint.  The result is a rubbing together of bone wearing the bone down even more.  The complex mix of ingredients found in elk velvet antler work together to lubricate the joints and aid in pain relief.  top^
