Tips for Supporting Joint Health

Joint HealthYou might think joint stiffness and discomfort is just part of growing older, but there are some simple natural ways to preserve your joints that can enhance your life in other ways, too. Here are some ways you can help your joints stay flexible and strong.

  • Cut back on — or eliminate — grain-derived processed foods and sugar. A large body of research has found that these foods may be the cause of inflammation that can make your joints hurt, and negatively affect your health in a multitude of other ways.

  • Get plenty of sleep. Sleep is when the body repairs itself. At least seven to eight hours of restful sleep is necessary for optimal maintenance of body parts.

  • De-stress. The world is saturated with stress. Continually “running from the tiger” inhibits normal repair functions in the body and allows tissues to break down. It’s important to stay active, but don’t overdo it. Regular physical activity stimulates repair functions in the body and helps maintain healthy joints. Excessive physical stress, however, accelerates wear-and-tear.

  • Practice yoga. Yoga stretches ligaments and enhances joint support without increasing damage to your body. The gentle, flowing poses can be less stressful on sore joints than other types of movement, according to the Arthritis Foundation. In fact, some studies show that yoga, which has its roots in ancient India, can reduce arthritis-related pain, improve joint function, build strength and promote relaxation.

  • Get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids. Maintaining a healthy omega-3 ratio may help reduce cartilage erosion and help thicken the synovial membrane.

  • Eat a healthy diet. Support your joint health by eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits, healthy fats that include omega-3 fatty acids such as those found in salmon and mackerel, avocado and olive oil. Not only will you support your joint health, a diet full of whole foods that are rich in nutrients has been shown to protect your overall health.

  • Support your joints with natural substances. Research shows that natural substances such as turmeric, boswellia and glucosamine, among others, may support joint comfort and mobility
