Joint care – Nutrition Sports Fitness
One of the more and more frequent problems is osteoarthritis which in fact is not only the wear and tear of the joints but also a disease linked to arthritis. The idea behind this article is not to make the nomenclature of inflammatory diseases but to provide solutions to help you.
Let’s start with food.
As you know, many joint problems often stem from a leaky gut. Which means you must outlaw anything that is inflammatory for YOU!
Having said that, make a food journal and go for it by elimination. Of course foods like:
Corn Certain wheats Refined sugars And many others
If you are having difficulty targeting foods that are inflammatory for * YOU, consult a naturopath or other qualified person.
* Why do I insist on the word “YOU”? This is because some people can eat a food their entire life without ever having a problem, while others cannot!
Now let’s move on to natural health products (SNPs) that may help you. Before you start, you should know that no matter what treatment you decide to do, it can sometimes take 3 to 6 months to have the maximum effect.
A supplement of glucosamine, chondroitin and collagen will be your greatest ally as in the case of Pro joint or Joint xtra from the company XPN
Why these 3 products?
Stimulates the production of collagen and cartilage. Improves joint flexibility. Would have an analgesic effect as powerful as ibuprofen and more effective than acetaminophen in the long term.
For glucosamine sulfate dosages only a 2000mg / day in divided dose is advised. At the end I give you an example of a trio of products that I recommend at XPN
Powerful anti-inflammatory Prevents the breakdown of cartilage Slows bone loss
An average dosage of 1200mg / day is recommended in divided doses with a meal.
There are 3 types of hydrolyzed collagen like:
Cattle, Chicken breastbone Chicken crest
Here, the one that interests me for this article is bovine collagen. Cheaper and just as effective as the other 2 except that the dosage must be greater. Or between 5gr and 10gr per day.
I could also mention MSM which helps relieve symptoms due to osteoarthritis and / or arthritis. Also improves recovery from muscle injury. A dosage of 50 mg / kg is recommended.
Several other products like:
And many more.
Here is what I suggest to you as a trio from XPN
As mentioned at the outset, joint products take some time to reach their full effect. So be patient and above all constant. Accompanied by a food structure you will have excellent results!
