Tips for Maintaining Healthy Joints
Adapted from Max Living
Healthy joints allow you to run, walk, jump, play sports, move comfortably, and do all the other things you love to do.
Did you know? - Women are more likely than men to have joint problems including osteoarthritis.
Fortunately, you can prevent deterioration and maintain healthy joints with the right approach.
These five strategies can relieve pressure, reduce stiffness, lighten the burden on your joints, and maintain joint health at any age.
Keep your ideal weight. For every pound you lose, you reduce pressure on your knees by 4 pounds.
Focus on anti-inflammatory foods. Wild-caught fish, walnuts, and flaxseeds are among the foods richest in omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce inflammation that can impact your joints.
Spice your meals with turmeric. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Drink plenty of water. Also try adding collagen to your water! Collagen is the primary component of cartilage.
Increase your movement. The more you move, the less stiff you’ll be. Change positions often even when you’re working or watching TV. Movement all adds up!
Taking care of your joints now can make life easier for you with age!
