Yay! “Spring has sprung”, as the saying goes. We have been waiting with baited breath to welcome the warm weather after a long winter! As we “spring” into action around outdoor activities, a word to the wise is to take care of our joints. When we start walking, running and cycling in earnest again, and start our gardening and yard clean up, be mindful! When we increase these types of repetitive movements incrementally, we support our joint health, and help our bodies to adjust with ease. I know there is a window of opportunity to get all those weeds in check before our gardens are out of control! And the road beckons to us! But overdoing it can result in aches and pains that slow us down in the long run. Nutritional supplementation to the rescue! There are beneficial nutrients that support our joints, at this time of year especially, and all year ‘round of course.
Every movement our bodies make is a miracle of motion, an amazing combination of our joints working together so we can enjoy a life of activity and adventure! However, our bodies are in a constant state of joint damage and repair.
Specific nutritional supplements such as Glucosamine and Omega 3 Fish Oils can reduce inflammation and discomfort, and prevent or delay damage by boosting our body’s healthy cellular regeneration of cartilage.
Glucosamine is an “amino sugar”. Unlike other forms of sugar in the body, amino sugars are components of carbohydrates that are incorporated into the structure of body tissues, rather than being used as a source of energy. It is found in high concentrations in joint structures. Phyllis A. Balch, CNC reports in her book “Prescription for Nutritional Healing (fourth edition)” that glucosamine has been proven in more than three hundred studies and twenty clinical trials to actually build joint cartilage.
As the body ages its efficiency or capacity for producing glucosamine and ultimately cartilage declines, resulting in prolonged periods where demand for glucosamine production for cartilage regeneration or repair exceeds supply. This loss of glucosamine production combined with an increase in demand due to physical activity or age related cartilage degeneration can result in the pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility known as osteoarthritis.
I recommend supplementation with GNLD’s unique, natural, bio-functional, pharmaceutically pure glucosamine supplement, “Full Motion”. It contains a 1500 mg therapeutic dose shown in studies to reduce pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis. Please click here for more information about this great supplement.
Adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids promotes a healthy balance of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory forces throughout the body and specifically in the joints, thereby promoting comfort and flexibility. Many people are trying to increase their fish consumption, (at least 2 servings per week recommended by Canada’s Food Guide) but are concerned about the presence of contaminants such as mercury, lead and PCB’s in fish. Are you getting enough and are you getting the best? I recommend supplementation with GNLD’s Omega-lll Salmon Oil Plus, an ultra high potency, ultra pure fish oil, complete (full spectrum) with standardized amounts of all eight naturally occurring omega-3’s. Proprietary molecular differentiation process concentrates beneficial omega 3’s using cold processing. The final product is screened for over 200 potential contaminants with an allowable detection limit of ZERO!
So, the message is “Go ahead and get more active and enjoy the spring weather!”
Tend to your garden and tend to your body by supplementing with glucosamine and omega-3 fish oil. Your joints will love you for it and you’ll love them rewarding you with ease and flexibility at this wonderful time of year and all year ‘round!
