Winter can be troublesome for the joints. With just a little know-how, joint issues and a range of other problems that come with are actually manageable. We present to you some tips for better joint health.
There are some basic lifestyle tips that you can follow to take care of your joint health this winter.
- Regular exercise. Less movements during the winter causes our joints to become stiff and painful. Therefore, exercising regularly helps to avoid this. The good news is you don’t have to do strenuous workouts. Walking daily or doing some gentle yoga can all help to keep you healthy and your body limber.
- Take Omega-3’s.Omega-3’s decrease symptoms of stiffness or tender or swollen joints. They are commonly found in fish oil or flaxseed. Omega-3 fatty acids known as DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) increase blood flow throughout the body. Thus, they help decrease inflammation and the progression of osteoarthritis.
- Take Serrapeptase. This digestive enzyme can dissolve inflamed tissue within the body. While it safely eliminates inflammation, it also leaves the healthy tissue intact. As a result, it is highly effective for relieving symptoms of joint pain, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, amongst others.
- Maintain a Balanced Diet. Eating a a well-balanced diet with wide abundance of food choices is imperative for anyone suffering from joint pain. This includes foods that are rich in Vitamins C and K. Colourful vegetables such as cabbage, orange, spinach and tomatoes are known to be ‘superfoods’ that can help to promote relief from joint pain. In addition, consider taking sulphur in your diet because this plays an important role in the energy factories of cells. It helps reduce fatigue and chronic pain.
- Drink plenty of water. Dehydration can have an impact on joint health. Because water makes up two-thirds of the human body, it plays an important role in lubricating the cartilage between joints. Water helps ensure that our joints are smooth and as a result, they maintain the right amount of friction. It is vital to drink 6-8 glasses of water with a pinch of bicarbonate of soda a day for best results.
