We all know that 30-minutes a day of heart-raising exercise, limiting alcohol and eating a balanced diet can help towards living a healthy lifestyle. As we work towards fulfilling this goal, keeping your joints well-oiled is a must, especially as we get older, suffer from inflammation and/or cartilage damage.
How do I achieve healthy joints?
Knees, hips and shoulders are key to joint mobility, and can be supported with natural products manufactured to specifically help joint health.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are natural substances found in the body, particularly in the joints and cartilage. They're often taken in supplement form to support joint health and reduce joint pain and stiffness. Glucosamine is an amino sugar which is a natural part of the cartilage, which acts as a cushion for your joints.
What exercise is best for healthy joints?
Carrying out physical exercise depends on your fitness ability and level of discomfort if you suffer from joint pain. We recommend you seek expert advice before undertaking any type of fitness, especially if you are recovering from surgery or replacement of any joints.
Maintaining a natural lifestyle and incorporating movement is key to a lifetime of joint health. Here are three easy ways to stay mobile:
- Aerobic exercise - which is easy on the joints like walking, swimming and cycling
- Weight-lifting - for building muscle mass and bone density
- Stretching - to prevent stiffness oil your joints with your body’s natural fluids, try yoga and pilates to achieve this
Also know when to time out - it’s essential for your body and mind to rest and recover.
What should I eat for healthy joints?
Eating a balanced diet is essential for a healthy, happy life. Incorporating key vitamins and minerals in your diet can also help you to have healthy joints:
- Green tea – known for its anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce swelling and prevent the reduction of collagen
- Eat your greens – leafy greens and broccoli are packed full of absorbable calcium which benefit bone health
- Fish oil is made up of omega-3 fatty acids – consume fish at least once a week as a natural solution to joint pain and relieving stiffness
- Turmeric – is becoming increasingly popular either and an addition to recipes or taken in tablet form
