Role of Nutrition In Feeling Your Best!

One of the most common symptoms of aging is joint discomfort. One option to combating these age-related symptoms is to take a nutritional supplement and or joint supplement to help promote overall bone and joint health. A second option is to maintain healthy body weight. For every one pound of body weight, there can be as much as 4 pounds of stress/force applied to your musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, muscles).* Extra body weight can play a significant role in the number of aches and pain one suffers as well as increase the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea to mention a few. So how does one combat joint discomfort, musculoskeletal aches, and pains, or excessive weight?

Here's how to feel your best one step at a time...

1. Have a gait analysis to look at how your body is aligned, what your foot type is, and how it interacts with the ground when you stand or move.  A biomechanical assessment will include posture, limb length, strength, and flexibility.

2. Discuss your current health with a health care provider. Consider taking a nutritional supplement to provide your body with vitamins and minerals that may be missing in your diet. Here are some thoughts:   When looking at a nutritional and or joint supplement, several main ingredients are worth investigating:  Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Hyaluronic Acid, and Methylsulfonylmethane, more commonly referred to as MSM, OPC3, Bromaline,  Pycnogenol, OPC3, Calcium, Vitamins B6 & B12, Folic Acid, to name a few. These can help in the treatment of joint disease, help maintain healthy cartilage and bones, reduce inflammation, and supports the immune system.
