Our joints make our day to day movements like walking, bending, sitting and even writing possible. Keeping them flexible and fluid as we age is important to avoiding the pain and stiffness that can set in from overuse and inflammation and developing diseases like osteoarthritis. By eating the rights foods and taking the correct supplements, you can help to prevent joint pain and manage inflammation that can make joint conditions worse. This preventative approach to maintaining healthy joints can help everyday life much easier and enable you to enjoy the physical activities you love, for a long time to come. Joint pain is almost always associated with inflammation and swelling, so foods that have anti-inflammatory qualities like dark leafy greens, dark berries and spices are always a good choice. Fatty fish like herring, cod, sardines and wild salmon and foods such as walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds and ground flax are all rich sources of Omega 3. This fatty acid is vital for keeping joints supple and lubricated and has also been shown to increase blood flow during exercise, helping to reduce pain and swelling. Getting all the nutrients required to promote good joint health from your diet alone, is ideal. However, this is not always possible! With the fast-paced, busy lifestyles we lead today it is hard to get enough nutrients from our food to meet nutrient amounts associated with a helpful decline in degenerative conditions. This is where nutritional supplements for joint health come in and CanPrev has you covered. CanPrev’s Joint-Pro is a supportive therapy for maintaining joint and cartilage health. It contains glucosamine hydrochloride, a naturally occurring compound the body uses to make cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments and the synovial fluid that cushions the joints. Glucosamine is especially effective when paired with chondroitin sulfate and a combination of herbs like boswellia and devil’s claw.
Joint-Pro NEM is an advanced formula featuring natural eggshell membrane that helps to maintain joint and cartilage health and reduce the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis. NEM also naturally contains hyaluronic acid which is an important building block for cartilage and connective tissue. Joint-Pro NEM and Joint-Pro are especially effective in relieving joint pain, they contain slightly different blends of ingredients depending on your needs. Joint-Pro NEM may be a better choice for those who are not able to tolerate chondroitin and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), while Joint-Pro may be best for those with allergies to eggs or egg byproducts. For thousands of years, turmeric has been one of the most commonly prescribed Ayurvedic remedies to relieve joint-related inflammation. Curcuminoids in turmeric slow the enzymes that cause inflammation and give the spice it’s bright yellow colour. Curcuminoids are also responsible for turmeric’s powerful antioxidant capabilities. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals (damaged rogue cells that debilitate more cells as they circulate) that go on to prompt the start of aging and disease in the body. Human clinical trials have shown that the body’s absorption rate of curcumin when taken orally is low. To compensate, phosphatidylcholine from naturally-sourced lecithin and bromelain have been added to CanPrev's Curcumin-Pro formula to enhance absorption and support curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties. Don't let joint pain stand between you and your active lifestyle.
