锘? As a person who has spent a high percentage of his waking hours adorned in sporting colours and locked in fierce combat with an opposition or digging deep to find that last bit of energy and strength on the field or on the track Carlton Fisk Jersey , I am fully aware of the physical repercussions as I grow older, and hopefully wiser. How do I now ensure this body keeps functioning like the well oiled machine that it has always seemed to be? The answer may well be as simple as two health supplements, which, when taken in combination are producing promising results.
Any good mechanic will tell you that the key to a machine's output is best found in prevention rather than cures. Like machines, our bodies require care and maintenance to ensure we last as long as possible! I think it is a terrible thing to think that the ageing have to suffer joint pain and their only `crime' has been years of physical activity and keeping fit. Amazingly Michael Jordan Jersey , it is often not our muscle or skeletal systems which give up the ghost, but actually that which hinges those things together, our joints.
Throughout my years of sport I always wondered if one day it would all catch up with me and that joint pain and arthritis might plague me. And then in recent years I watched my father and father-in-law, both elite sportspeople in their day, experiencing intense pain in their neck Frank Thomas Jersey , knees, elbows and shoulders. This was not a good omen for me and I watched their medical journey with intense interest. Both were given two basic choices: invasive procedures such as joint replacements or oral supplements which were said to work for many others. They decided to try the supplements first and the results have been remarkably positive. It turns out that the key to their pain relief is two highly researched ingredients called glucosamine and chondroitin.
If you have ever suffered from arthritis or joint degeneration, you will know that it can be a debilitating experience. Without going into the intricate medical terminolgy and indepth physiological explanations that often confuse sufferers, it is often the combination of a diminishing level of fluids and a breakdown of cartilage that normally creates the easy sliding movement within joints which causes decreased movement and corrosion. Without this slipperiness, grating and scraping occurs and movement is restricted as pain is increased.
After watching a former elite football player who once represented his nation in Rugby League struggle to put his socks on due to joint pain in knees and back Bill Melton Jersey , I realized with a start that it's not just the aged who suffer from arthritis, oestoearthritis, and other forms of joint disfunction. Enter: a supplement containing glucosamine and chondroitin. The result for him? Saving grace. This discomfort has been reduced and the function improved remarkably.
Recent news has caused much rejoicing in the ranks of the sufferers of joint pain. Recent studies confirm that glucosamine and chondroitin do provide long awaited pain relief and much needed hope to sufferers. According to the Council for Responsible Nutrition, the clinical trial sponsored by the National Institue of Health found that significant pain relief was achieved by arthritis sufferers who used these two dietary supplements in combination.
In the body, glucosamine and chondroitin can be naturally found. Simply put Jose Abreu Jersey , cartilage formation and repair is the role of glucosamine and the provision of cartilage elasticity is the role of chondroitin. It is the combination of both which seem to enhance the effectiveness of these two and results in pain relief and increased joint movement. Users must realize that it generally takes up to two months of consistent use before the effects kick in.
I strongly advise sufferers to take a wholistic approach to dealing with this problem. Don't rely just on supplements, or just on exercise, or just on an operation. Commence a daily exercise program which involves stretching (slowly) and warming up as well as cooling down. Exercise will assist keeping your joints mobile. Many gentle physical activities will assist in increasing movement. Why not try combining your exercise with a daily glucosamine anad chondroitin supplement and give yourself every chance for glorious and liberating pain relief!
When exercising, you should as a habit, warm up by stretching your joints and muscles. Careful that you do not overstretch or do too much too soon. Ideally your warm up should contain long Chris Sale Jersey , gentle movements and stretches should be held for around 10-15 seconds. You can supplement stretches with other movements dependent on your level of mobility and age, isometrics and probably even weight-bearing activities.
Is there hope for the millions of arthritis and joint pain sufferers out there? I believe so. The research and the anecdotal evidence both seem to be pointing to two supplements called glucosamine and chondroitin. Taken in combination, they are fast becoming the light at the end of the tunnel for myself and for anyone else who's tired of being in discomfort.
