People don’t think too much about their joints when they are young and healthy and everything is working as it should, so if you’re under 30, you may not realize just how vital healthy joints are to your overall quality of life. We use our joints for everything from walking, to typing, to bending down to pat the family dog, and as we age, this constant daily use takes its toll on our bodies. Most people begin to notice cracks in their knees and stiffness in the morning as they move into their 30’s and 40’s and there are other factors like weight, diet and occupation that also play a role in how quickly joints begin to show signs of wear and tear.
There is good news, however! Whether you are 20 or 70, there are plenty of things you can do to support healthy joints as you age and it’s never too soon or too late to start. We’ve put together a list of 4 ways to maintain healthy joints, to help you stay active and pain-free well into your wiser years, including Joint Vitality. This powerful supplement uses a scientific, multi-pronged approach to joint health and with its unique formulation of ingredients, it’s a great way to reinforce good joint health no matter your age or stage in life.
Maintain a Healthy Weight
It stands to reason that the more pressure you put on weight-bearing joints like your knees, hips and ankles, the more they have to work, and the more they work, the faster they will become fatigued. It’s important to maintain a healthy weight so that your joints are not constantly overtaxed as this can lead to premature damage to the cartilage. Remember, you don’t have to be a supermodel or an athlete to achieve a healthy weight and the goal with any weight loss should always be to keep your body fit and active for as long as possible. If you think you might be overweight, some basic nutritional changes to your diet could help you, and your joints, stay mobile for many years to come.
Exercise not only helps with weight loss and maintenance, it can help keep your joints flexible and pain-free too. Some research (1) suggests that aerobic exercise may reduce joint swelling that causes pain and discomfort. If you do suffer from joint issues, avoid high impact exercises like running and aerobics and instead try swimming, biking or the elliptical. Be sure to get plenty of rest and start slow. It’s always better to ease your body into a new exercise routine than to push too hard too fast and risk injury.
Some research suggests that supplements like Selenium (2) and vitamin D (3) may help to prevent the development of rheumatoid arthritis and The Arthritis Foundation recommends taking Turmeric/Curcumin (4) to help reduce joint pain and swelling because of its anti-inflammatory properties. While these powerful vitamins and herbs can be found in foods like brazil nuts, eggs, and fatty fish like tuna, mackerel and salmon, it can be hard to make sure that you are getting enough of these joint supporting ingredients in your daily diet. A simple tablet like Joint Vitality can help. Joint Vitality offers a comprehensive and complete solution for joint health and contains a specially formulated blend of ingredients including Selenium, Vitamin D, Turmeric/Curcumin, Deer Velvet and more, to make sure that your joints are getting all of the nutritional reinforcement they need.
We all know by now that it’s important to stay hydrated. Getting all the water you need can help improve everything from your mood to your appetite, but did you know that it also helps your joints stay healthy? About 80 percent of your joint cartilage is made up of water and if your body isn’t getting all the water it needs to function, it pulls from areas like your cartilage which can be a big problem for your knees and hips. Be sure you’re getting your 8 glasses of water per day and listen to your body. Keep a bottle of water in your car and one by your desk so you always have some on the go.
In order to stay mobile, active and pain-free well into old age it’s vitally important to take care of our bodies and it’s never too soon or too late to start. Remember to eat a healthy diet, stay active, drink plenty of water, and for extra joint support try a supplement like Joint Vitality, specially formulated to take the guesswork out of supporting healthy joints and bones.
