Aging And Joint Health For The Prevention Of Injury & Inflammation

Getting older definitely has some drawbacks. Lets look at one in particular. Your joints; the connection between two bones. As you age, the smooth joint tissue and it's specialized lubricant called synovial fluid. Over time the area in the joint degrades, the tissue weakens and the surrounding synovial fluid looses effectiveness. This can damage can lead to a common and painful condition called arthritis. Here are a few ways to act now to protect your joints now so you can be more active with less discomfort as you age.

  • Watch your weight: Extra weight places unnecessary stress on joints, you body isn't designed to carry too much extra weight and operate at optimal levels. [Try Our Free Weight Loss Meal Plan]
  • Exercise for strengthening. 3-5 times a week for 30 min is all it takes.
  • Build muscle: Stronger muscle supports the joint area better and reduces injuries in that sensitive area.
  • Core: Building up your core strength gives you stronger abs, back muscles, creates better balance, supports a healthy gate and prevents falls, this all helps the joint area.
  • Know your limits - don't push yourself hard enough to cause injuries.
  • Gear up: Regardless of your sport or activity, ensure you're using proper safety equipment to avoid injuries.
  • Eating right: Insure your eating well, getting in ample amounts of calcium, fiber, water, Vitamin D and antioxidants. Double-down by eliminating all those unhealthy foods that cause undue inflammation.
  • Supplements: Cover your bases with proper supplementation. Invest in a quality organic multi-vitamin like Complete Multi + Liver Detox Support with CoQ10, anti-inflammatory like Inflam-Arrest and a joint care product like PerfectAminoessential amino acids.
