Arthritis: How To Protect Your Bones And Joints

Whatever your age or level of fitness, your bones and joints can cause you problems. Knowing how to protect your bones and joints can help to maintain and even improve their health throughout your life. Not protecting them properly can lead to stiff, inflamed, and painful joints.

What Is Arthritis And Joint Pain?

Arthritis is an umbrella term for conditions associated with joint pain and inflammation. It happens when the cartilage in joints wears thin and causes the two bones to come in contact.

Osteoarthritis is one such condition, which can become severe and affect any joint in the body. While there are many risk factors for Osteoarthritis, the onset of the condition is normally down to a number of factors which all play a role together. These are:

  • Age – (particularly over the 40s) collagen levels decrease as we age
  • Obesity – extra weight on joints increases osteoarthritis risk
  • High impact sport
  • Genetic factors
  • Joint injuries

How To Protect Your Bones And Joints

Arthritis is a condition that can’t be cured. But with the right treatment, it can be improved and stopped from getting worse.

For at-home treatment try:

  1. Regular exercise
  2. Maintaining a healthy BMI
  3. Stay hydrated
  4. Consume vitamin D3
  5. Add bandage supports to painful joints
  6. Have lots of Calcium
  7. Wearing supportive footwear
  8. Increase antioxidant intake
  9. Eat more fatty acids

Regular low impact exercise helps to keep your bones and joints supple and flexible. Try regular stretches, yoga or walking to maintain flexibility and tone, without creating pressure or discomfort to the joints. Keeping your weight at a healthy level for your age and height will also prevent excess pressure on joints. Keeping hydrated will also make sure that joints have a plentiful supply of synovial fluid, which are the liquid the cushions in between bones.

Supplements For Joints 

Your nutrition is also important in trying to improve and protect your bones and joints. Vitamins D3 and B12 can help to maintain bone density and strength, while essential fatty acids, like omega-3, have their anti-inflammatory properties. Antioxidants, such as Vitamin A, C, and E, can help to prevent the effect of free radical, which are the biggest cause of joint deterioration.

After extensive research into the most fundamental components of healthy bones and joints, we have developed with the most effective and most convenient supplement. Containing a unique blend of antioxidant Vitamin C, MSM, Turmeric Extract, and essential fatty acid Flaxseed Oil, Joint Effort helps to reduce inflammation, increase collagen formation, and contribute to the healthy functioning of cartilage.

  • Flaxseed Oil  – found to help ease arthritis symptoms.

“Worth Every Penny”

“I’ve been looking for a joint support multivitamin now for a couple of weeks having started to suffer from knee pain post sports. After a week to 10 days of taking this product I really started to feel the benefits. The pain I’ve been feeling has subsided significantly since and I will definitely be purchasing regularly. Quirky name also which is different to most bran,ds I’ve seen whilst shopping around. Would recommend to all.”
