Give Joints The Attention They Deserve

World Bone and Joint week takes place from 12 to 20 October 2017, offering the opportunity to give your joints the attention they deserve.

Joints are the connections between the bones that allow you to bend, walk and sit. Therefore making sure that your joints are kept in tip-top shape should be a priority.

“Joints should be tendered to as importantly as every other part of our body,” says Akash Beecum from OsteoEze®. “We only tend to look after our joints when something goes wrong and when we feel pain, but we should be making the effort to look after our joints during our daily lives.”

Beecum offers 5 tips on how to look after your joints:

  1. Maintain a healthy body weight

Looking after your weight is also looking after your joints. By carrying excess weight you are putting added strain onto your joints.

  1. Keep active

Exercising daily improves joint mobility and can help alleviate joint pain. The pain and stiffness in your joints can get worse if you don’t exercise, as this gets the joints moving. Remember to stretch before and after you exercise, it is important to warm-up and keep your joints warm.

  1. Reduce stress

When you are stressed your body produces the stress hormone cortisol, which drives down the production of collagen which is needed for healthy joints.

  1. Supplement

OsteoEze® Gold is formulated with high dosages of glucosamine and chondroitin to help build healthy cartilage, improve joint mobility and reduce stiffness and swelling.

  1. Don’t ignore pain

Pain is there for a reason and it is important that you understand that you wouldn’t be hurting if there wasn’t something wrong. Many people continue to exercise through the pain, and only cause more damage to the joint. If you experience recurring pain, see your doctor. Also, consider OsteoEze® Acute, a herbal anti-inflammatory with boswellia, curcumin and ginger, which reduces pain and inflammation.
