  • Natural Remedies For Joint Health

    As you get older, have you started to notice some of your joints becoming stiff or achy from time to time? I certainly have, and I suspect that I’m beginning to develop a little osteoarthritis – most people do experience it to some extent as they age.

    NATURAL REMEDIES FOR JOINT HEALTH NATURAL REMEDIES FOR JOINT HEALTH

    Staying pain-free and remaining flexible and mobile is important to me, both now and in the future, so here are some of the supplements I take to help support my joint health.

    GLUCOSAMINE AND CHONDROITIN FOR CARTILAGE AND JOINT SUPPORT

    Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are two of the most popular natural treatments for arthritis   , and with good reason: the body uses both these substances to help maintain and repair the structure of the cartilage that lines the joints.

    Taken together for periods of at least 1-2 months, glucosamine and chondroitin may assist in the management of osteoarthritis and the associated pain, swelling, inflammation and stiffness, while simultaneously helping to increase the flexibility and mobility of affected joints.

    Glucosamine sulfate may also be of benefit in cartilage damage caused by sporting injuries, when it may assist with joint function, tissue repair and pain relief.

    OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS: NATURAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

    If you’re affected by arthritis, you’ve got even more reason than everyone else to make sure you’re getting enough fish in your diet. The omega-3 fats found in fish oil (as well as in krill and flaxseed oils), have anti-inflammatory actions in the body, and may help relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.

    DON’T FORGET YOUR OTHER VITAMINS AND MINERALS

    Besides glucosamine, chondroitin and the omega-3 fats, a wide range of nutrients are involved in the maintenance of healthy connective tissue and cartilage. In particular, be aware that vitamin C is needed for cartilage production and growth, and that manganese is a cofactor in the production of the building blocks of cartilage.

    ROSE HIP RELIEVES ARTHRITIS PAIN

    Rose hip oil is well known for the benefits it has when applied topically to the skin, but did you know that other parts of the rose hip also have health benefits? In particular, compounds found in rose hips called galactolipids can aid in the management of osteoarthritis by helping to relieve arthritis pain and improving joint mobility . In clinical studies involving patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, rose hip has demonstrated benefits for osteoarthritis when taken in doses of 5 grams per day over several months.
