The degeneration of the joints usually begins without understanding it. It develops slowly and steadily and is caused by injuries and daily activities, but also by the reduction of levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen found in the body and are considered necessary for avoiding wear and tear. Inflammation and pain occur in any joint, reducing the freedom of our movements.

Older individuals, e.g. at the age of 60, are most likely to experience joint pain in the form of osteoarthritis, which usually affects one or two joints and sometimes is more painful and others is less painful. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease. It can cause discomfort, pain on the knee or the thigh and even stiffness in the knuckles.

However, there are cases where the problem is found in the tissues surrounding the joints called tendons. These situations usually occur mainly in athletes, such as runners and basketball players.

Below you will see some helpful tips for maintaining good joint health.

– Introduce exercise into your everyday life. It has been proved that systematic, mild exercise contributes to the proper functioning and to the strengthening of the joints.

– Take care of your body’s stance. We must take care of our body’s stance not only when we lift something or exercise, but in any case, even when we sit or walk. Long standing uprightness and immobility strain our joints and our musculoskeletal system.

– Maintain normal body weight. Normal body weight is very important for the health of the joints.

Certain nutritional supplements with a very good safety profile and great scientific documentation such as SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID are also very important.

SUPERFOODS® OSTEOAID or, as is globally known, Natural Eggshell Membrane, is a natural superfood that comes from the egg shell membrane and is subject to the United States patented, high-tech processing method that is unique in the world. Thanks to this method, it is an ideal and unique combination of ingredients in the form and quantity that are present in the human body and are used by it. Some of these ingredients, in ideal proportions, are glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulphate and collagen.

It is worth noting that to date, several clinical studies of the product in patients and healthy people have demonstrated that a single pill a day has beneficial effects in alleviating pain, reducing stiffness and protecting the cartilage, with visible results at 7- 10 days. It is a well-established product in the USA and in several European countries, which is now coming to Greece to provide solutions to those who already have problems with their joints, but also those who belong to high-risk groups due to aggravating factors such as overweight and strenuous sports or due to heredity reasons.

Taking into account the needs of your body and following the doctor’s advice, you can improve the health of the joints and enjoy your daily routine.
