Healthy Joints are Essential to an Active Lifestyle

Sore, stiff joints can discourage activity and exercise, and inactivity can make the problem even worse. Our joints keep us moving and keeping them healthy means movement and nutrition.

October is Bone and Joint Health National Awareness Month, which gives us all an opportunity to focus on our joints – which too many of us can take for granted.

Often we don’t think about our joints unless we feel pain. Joint concerns may develop as we age and the fluid around our joints dissipates, leading to friction and erosion of cartilage. Being overweight, having poor posture and even wearing shoes that don’t fit properly can add more stress to our joints.

Those who exercise regularly should be tuned into their joint health too. Fitness routines mean greater physical demands – and may bring additional stress to our joints.

Over the years, joints that are not properly exercised and nourished can feel stiff, sensitive and sore. Movement and nutrition keeps joints lubricated and exercise keeps the muscles around joints strong.

Glucosamine and chondroitin are part of our cartilage, which acts as a cushion in our joints between bones. Over time, cartilage can erode and this loss may be a cause of joint pain. Leading joint health supplements, such as the Osteo Bi-Flex brand, contain glucosamine and chondroitin and are designed to help strengthen our joints naturally. You can find these leading joint health supplements at stores near you and leading online retailers.

We’re observing Bone and Joint Health Awareness Month with a terrific giveaway to encourage more movement, exercise and proper joint nutrition.
