The Importance of Healthy Joints

Have you ever sat and watched a child play on a playground? The child will run and chase after other children, climb on and off the monkey bars and sit and use his legs to pump up and down on the swing. All of these movements are effortless for the child because of the youth of his joints. However, as we get older, the wear and tear on our joints makes even simple movements more work. Bending down to get something out of the bottom cupboard or trying to walk for extended periods of time can be a real effort, and can even be uncomfortable. Learning how to nourish and take care of our joints can increase our flexibility as we get older and even provide relief for uncomfortable joints.

Cartilage normally protects the joint, allowing for smooth movement. Cartilage also absorbs shock when pressure is placed on the joint, like when you walk or otherwise bear weight. Without the usual amount of cartilage, the bones rub together, causing discomfort and stiffness.

There are certain things you can do to help maintain healthy joints and cartilage. Here are just a few things you can do on a regular basis to help maintain healthy joints:

  • Stay Active. Doing regular, weight bearing exercise is one of the best ways to help keep your joints healthy. Maintaining a healthy weight alleviates stress to your joints and helps avoid stiffness and discomfort in movement.

  • Eat a diet rich in vitamins and minerals, especially antioxidants like vitamin E. These are found in fruits and vegetables. Get selenium from Brewer's yeast, wheat germ, garlic, whole grains, sunflower seeds, and Brazil nuts. Get omega-3 fatty acids from cold water fish (like salmon, mackerel, and herring), flaxseed, rapeseed (canola) oil, soybeans, soybean oil, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts.

  • Taking glucosamine and chondroitin -- these form the building blocks of cartilage, the substance that lines joints. Early studies indicate that these compounds are safe and support optimal joint health. More research is underway.

How Glucosamine and Chondroitin Support Healthy Joints

Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are substances found naturally in the body and work together to promote healthy joint movement. Glucosamine is a form of amino sugar that is very important in cartilage formation and repair. Chondroitin sulfate is part of a large protein molecule (proteoglycan) that gives cartilage elasticity.

Specifically, glucosamine provides the building blocks for glycosaminoglycans, which are the lubricating structure in cartilage. Glucosamine is also a chondroprotective agent, which helps nourish joints for comfortable movement. Specific studies show that glucosamine also promotes the production of proteoglycans, supports lubrication and supports sulfate uptake in particular cartilage.* Chondroitin builds and maintains the structural framework of joints to cushion and support movement.*

Recent studies have demonstrated that glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates can act work together to lubricate joints, and nourish cartilage and connective tissue, which all contribute to increased mobility and flexibility.

Glucosamine has been studied for well over 40 years in humans and it has been used even longer by veterinarians in animals ranging from prized thoroughbred horses to cats and dogs. European doctors have been using injectable glucosamine sulfate for joint health since the 1960s.

Glucosamine has been shown in clinical studies to support the healthy development of healthy joint and muscle tissue and, amazingly, even help the healthy rebuilding of cartilage.

Unlike medications, glucosamine and chondroitin have not been associated with significant side effects.

Some experts suggest taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin routinely after the age 50 to help address the need for healthy joint development and maintenance.
