5 Proven Tips For Healthy Joints
It’s a part of life.
As we mature (I like that better than the ‘O’ word:)) our joints become stiffer and less flexible.
Cartilage deteriorates and joints become painful, inflamed and sore
Don’t give up though, there is still hope!
Here’s 5 tips on keeping your joints healthy and moving:
Nourish with Collagen-
Apart from water, collagen is the most abundant substance in the body. In regards to our joints and tendons, it's what helps hold them together, preventing them from rubbing against each other.
As we age, the amount of collagen our body produces starts to decline which often results in joint pain due to weaker or decreased cartilage.
2. Dose up on Vitamin D
Vitamin D helps calcium absorption, so if you’re loading up on calcium, take a vitamin D supplement like D3 Plus to help your
body absorb it.
3. Get Fatty
Omega 3 fatty acids are champions at fending off inflammation and can be found in flaxseed, salmon and EFA Krill.
4. Get a Massage
If you feel that you can’t justify spending money on a massage then here’s your out. Massage is the perfect way to reliever tense muscles and achy joints.
5. Move It!
Just as you need your joints to move, your joints need you to move if they’re to stay strong and flexible. Try walking, swimming, a little dancing, nothing too strenuous.
Give these 5 tips a go and see how they can improve your joint health:)
