Can you imagine not being able to do the things you love to do? For example; long walks, a favorite workout routine, or even walking up the stairs? It all starts with healthy joints. Now, joint health probably isn’t something you consider on the daily, but it’s time to give it some thought. By taking good care of your joints you’re setting yourself up for years of an active lifestyle.
So, what can we do to promote healthy joints?
Invest in high quality products like those from Joint Juice®. From ready-to-drink supplements to highly concentrated Joint Juice® Easy Shot™, Joint Juice® is the perfect supplement for supporting healthy joints on-the-go. We know you’re careful about what you put in your body – so Joint Juice® only uses safe ingredients that are proven to support joint function and mobility.
Of course a supplement isn’t the “be all end all” to joint health. Lifestyle changes also help. Simple things like sitting, walking up stairs and high-impact exercises deeply influence the flexibility, mobility and overall health of our joints. It’s how we do these activities that will keep joints strong and healthy. So, naturally, we reached out to our partner Joint Juice® for the best tips and tricks.
As Isaac Newton said, a body at rest stays at rest, and a body in motion stays in motion. It’s also the golden rule of joint health. Regular movement helps maintain flexibility in your joints, and staying mobile will help reduce stiffness. We know it’s hard to keep moving, especially when our lifestyle includes a lot of immobile activity like driving or working at a desk. Whether you’re watching TV, working or reading, change positions often or get up and walk around. Even small efforts like this can make a big difference!
Maintain a Healthy Weight
Weight can have a huge impact on joint health. Extra weight adds pressure to the joints – especially the knees, hips and feet. Losing weight will relieve some of that pressure and help your joints remain healthy, mobile and flexible. Of course, it’s not up to us to determine a healthy weight for you. Speak with a healthcare provider to determine a target weight for your unique condition.
Make Safety a Priority
Playing volleyball? Rollerblading? Going for a bike ride? Keep yourself safe from a fall or collision and make sure you’re armed with proper joint protection. We suggest investing in a durable helmet plus padding. The most important areas to protect are your elbows and knees. We know it might look a little silly, but better safe than sorry, am I right? Not only are you keeping your own joints safe, you’re instilling safe and healthy habits for your kids, friends or bystanders!
Warm Up & Stretch
We recently asked our community how much time they devote to stretching after exercise. The results were astonishing! Many people only take a few minutes to stretch – or skip it entirely. We have advice for you: don’t skip your stretches! When we exercise, we’re putting added pressure on our joints and tendons. It’s imperative that we work these areas via stretching and some type of warm up before working them too hard. This increases flexibility and conditions our joints to stay healthy while enduring exercise.
