What Can I Do to Support My Bones and Joints?
No matter your age, you need your joints and bones to be in the best possible condition. Easily overlooked, bones actually have a number of hidden talents and tasks to perform! The obvious one is that they give your body structure and support by being the internal framework your body needs, and on the inside they’re making blood and immune cells for you within the marrow.
Your bones also provide places for your muscles, tendons, and ligaments to attach too. In tandem they all work together to keep your bones joined to each other so you can to stand, walk, sit, and bend. They’re even designed to stop you bending the wrong way uncontrollably. So, without your bones, movement would be somewhat complicated, to say the least.
The more active you are, the more flexibility and strength you’ll have. Commonly, trips to the gym are focused on building muscle and maintaining healthy weight, when in fact you’re also increasing bone strength and bone mass when you do impact or resistance exercises!
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, good nutrition is one of your best “go-tos” for keeping your bones solid and sound. Once you’ve reached adolescence your bone density is at its peak. After that, it’s simply a matter of making sure you’re keeping your mineral and vitamin bank in credit, so it’s never too early to be mindful about the foods you eat.
Eat fresh raw fruits and vegetables which are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, as well as enzymes for digestion to support better nutrient absorption. Highly refined foods rich in carbohydrates, sugars, and processed fats will throw out your pH balance and cause your body to pull important minerals like calcium and magnesium from your bones and tissue to help stabilise your pH balance. If this continues, your valuable mineral stores can become depleted.
For the sake of your bones (and muscles and overall health) keep moving every day for strength, flexibility, and healthy weight. If you have tender joints, gentle walking or water exercises may still offer you the same benefits, without being high impact. Start gently and avoid excessive exercise that stresses your joints. Listen to your body, start slowly, and build up.
To help support your vitamin and mineral bank to keep your joints and bones healthy, we’re created our Joint and Bone package. It offers powerful daily support for joints and bones providing you with additional nutrients for bone health, as well as joint tissue strength and suppleness. We’ve also added a super powered antioxidant support for added benefit.
You receive 3 products in this pack that offer complete support for joints and bones: Calcium to support bone and teeth structure, Astazan for joint and muscle recovery, and Omega 3 to support joint and bone health.
Calcium: Our Calcium is certified organic and sourced from a sustainably harvested seaweed that is naturally rich in calcium with a unique porous honeycomb-like structure for optimal absorption, to support bone and teeth structure, as well as nerve and muscle function.
Astazan: Sustainably sourced from red algae, Astazan is a natural source of the powerful antioxidant Astaxanthin, which protect cells from free radical damage, and supports joint and muscle recovery, in addition to many other benefits for overall well being.
Omega 3: Our Vegan Omega 3 supports joint, bone, heart and skin health with a high strength Omega 3 formula. Plus, because it's derived solely from marine microalgae (the original source of two fatty acids found in fish oil), it has absolutely no fishy smell or after taste!
