Why is it important to support our joints?
It is important to look after our joints in order to ensure ease of mobility and avoid complaints as we grow older. As we age, our joint movement can become stiffer and less flexible due to the amount of lubricating fluid inside our joint decreases and the cartilage around joints becomes thinner. Our ligaments also tend to shorten as we grow older and can lose some of their elasticity and flexibility, which can make our joints feel stiff and uncomfortable. We tend not to think about our joints until they become uncomfortable or are causing pain, but it can be beneficial to support our joints sooner rather than later. Some steps you can take to support your joints include:
- Regular exercise to help strengthen the muscles around the joint
- Consuming a healthy and varied diet that includes plenty of vitamins, particularly vitamin D
- Practise good posture ensuring you sit and stand up straight and do not slouch
- Try supplements to support a healthy diet
What is turmeric?
Turmeric is a plant that belongs to the ginger family and can be found in Southeast Asia. The spice extracted from the plant is commonly used in cooking and traditional medicine and has been used in India to traditionally treat skin conditions, joints and digestive system. The active part of turmeric is called curcumin which is thought to have a range of benefits including antioxidants that may help to keep the body healthy and can act as an anti-inflammatory.
What is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine is an amino sugar that is naturally found within the body. It helps to form the building blocks that form the joints, including ligaments, tendons cartilage and synovial fluid. It is commonly derived from shellfish as an ingredient for supplements, but it is also possible to source it from fermented corn for vegan-friendly supplements.
How can Healthspan Joint Support help to maintain healthy joints?
Healthspan Joint Support contains Healthspans patented Optiflex Glucosamine HCI which is sourced from a sustainable corn-base, so it is free from shellfish and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. The capsules include turmeric extract and Boswellia serrata which is a highly concentrated and stomach-friendly way to gain the active boswellic acid which has been suggested to be helpful for symptoms of joint conditions. The formulation is enhanced with calcium, vitamin C and a vegan form of vitamin D to create a premium supplement for healthy joints and bones
