Strong joints through all ages

No matter your age or daily activity level, it’s vital to take care of your joints for strength, mobility and flexibility. Joints are a part of your body that can cause serious pain and health issues if they’re not cared for.

Produced naturally in healthy joint tissue, glucosamine and collagen act as building blocks for healthy joint cartilage. Glucosamine helps produce compounds that form the joint and assist with joint repair, while collagen provides strength and structure to cartilage. When a joint is injured, and as you age, your body’s natural glucosamine supply is reduced, which can lead to joint deterioration.

So, is there anything you can do to keep your joints healthy, or is joint pain simply inevitable? Ask yourself these questions to see if you’re making the right choices for your joints and overall wellbeing.


Am I a healthy weight?

Research shows that with every pound gained, a person puts four times more stress on their knees! Those who are overweight often have problems in the knees, hips and back – their weight-bearing joints. Aerobic activities strengthen joints and keep your weight in check. Opt for low-impact activities like swimming, walking or yoga if you’re hesitant.


Do I drink enough water?

The joints of your body depend on water to enable the blood to deliver much-needed nutrients and escort toxins away. Also, cartilage is anywhere from 65 to 80 per cent water, so drinking enough water is important for joint health.


Am I moving right?

In day-to-day life, particular movements can support or weaken joints. Maintaining a good posture by sitting and standing straight protects joints from your neck to your knees. When lifting, bend at your knees rather than at your back.


How’s my nutrition?

A healthy, balanced diet is fundamental to healthy joints. Incorporating key joint support ingredients through diet and supplementation can help address joint issues. Oily fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines are rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids, which support healthy joints. Ginger and turmeric both offer cells powerful antioxidant protection from free radicals. Celery supports fluid balance in joints and elimination of toxins from the body. Copper, boron, zinc, manganese and selenium support the development of strong, healthy joint tissue.


Is my body aligned?

Misalignment of vertebrae in the spine can come from sleep, poor posture, toxins, illness, stress or injuries. Realignment from a chiropractor, osteopath or massage therapist may ease daily life and prevent joint deterioration.
