Best Nutrients to Support Healthy Joint Function

We use our bodies every day, and the stress and strain that our bodies are able to endure is amazing!

Joint Information

Joints are created where two bones meet and are made up of a bunch of parts that work together to allow us to bend, twist, and more.

Many people suffer from joint pain as they grow older, or if they put too much strain on their joints at a younger age. Whether you suffer from joint pain with an unknown cause, or you put too much stress on your joints, there are natural nutrients known to reduce inflammation and promote healthy joints.

Joint Health Studies

Promoting healthy joints can taste great. Foods containing omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, walnuts, and flaxseed have been studied for their effects on maintaining healthy joint function.[1]* Certain spices, such as ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon have also been studied for their effects on promoting joint health. [2] *

 Promoting Joint Health through Cooking

Cooking a great joint health supporting meal has never been easier. Start by lightly sprinkling turmeric over a beautiful slab of salmon. Bake it, squeeze some lemon on it and serve with baked yams. For the yams, you can steam the yams with cinnamon (my favorite)! Fill a saucepan with an inch of water, and chop the yam into thick circular pieces. I load the cinnamon on top and let it steam until a fork can cleanly poke through the yam pieces. Then, I mix them up like mash potatoes (skins included).

 Promoting Joint Health through Movement

As a trainer, my main objective is to keep clients moving, increasing stability and strength in their muscles and joints. Keeping your weight in a healthy range, decreases the amount of stress put onto your joints, as the knees and back take in a huge portion of your body weight when you move around. If aerobic exercise is too hard for you to do, try low impact exercises; swimming, walking, cycling, etc.

Keeping our joints healthy and happy will in turn help keep you moving around your life and continuing to do the things you enjoy.
