What Joint Care Supplements Are Suitable For You?
As we age, our joints become less flexible and thus, less able to handle the daily wear and tear of physical activity. For active individuals like athletes, joint care is important for injury prevention and maintaining optimal performance. Joint pain is a common problem experienced among seniors, and can significantly affect their quality of life.
Read on to find out which NutriLife joint care supplement can help improve joint flexibility and help you find relief from pain.
Ingredients To Look Out For
Glucosamine and Chondroitin
These are the two most commonly used ingredients in joint care supplements. They are often taken together as they work synergistically to support joint health. Glucosamine is a natural compound found in the body. It helps build and maintain cartilage. Chondroitin is a substance found in cartilage and helps prevent the breakdown of the cartilage. Together, these two ingredients have been shown to reduce joint pain and stiffness in individuals experiencing osteoarthritis specifically.
Collagen is a protein found in connective tissues throughout the body, including joints. It not only provides structural support, but helps maintain the elasticity in our joints. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to joint pain, reduced flexibility and stiffness. Supplements containing collagen support joint health by promoting collagen production and have also been shown to reduce joint pain in osteoarthritis.
A spice commonly used in many Indian cuisines. It contains a compound called curcumin, which has strong anti-inflammatory properties. As inflammation plays a role in the development and progression of many joint conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, turmeric can help alleviate joint pain and reduce stiffness.
Also known as devil's claw, harpagophytum is an herb with anti-inflammatory properties and has been traditionally used for ailments such as joint pain and inflammation. The active compounds in harpagophytum have been shown to have analgesic, or pain-relieving, effects. Additionally, harpagophytum increases blood flow, which helps deliver essential nutrients and oxygen to the joints, promoting healing and reducing inflammation.
Calcium + Vitamin D3
As we age, our bones become weaker and can become more susceptible to injuries like fractures. This can be problematic for individuals with osteoarthritis, as weakened bones can put additional stress on the joints. Calcium will help improve bone strength and reduce the risk of fractures and other bone-related injuries. Vitamin D3 is also necessary for calcium absorption and many calcium supplements will contain vitamin D3.
