1-2-3 Routine for Optimal Joint Health
Nothing feels better than dancing, walking, stretching and moving your body...unless you have joint pain.
If you have creaking, aching joints it can take away a lot of life’s greatest joys. While no single product or pill is going to solve joint pain completely, there ARE remedies and habits that can give you back that free and easy feeling.
Today let’s focus on three things that you can do every single day as part of a “Joyful Joints Routine”. One is a commitment. One is a habit, and the last one is a natural remedy. Curious to know what they are? Read on.
Joint health comes down to three rather simple factors. 1) How you repair your joints, (or how you let your body repair them for you), how you use your joints, and how you support your joints nutritionally. Making a big change in one of these areas is likely going to create results in your life. But if you can make a leap in all three areas, it could dramatically change your joint health.
The first area is repair, specifically: Sleep.
Sleep is the wonderful natural process by which the body repairs itself, especially the joints. Many people complain of aching joints but don’t commit to getting adequate sleep. That’s like complaining about your car not working when you never once took it to get serviced!
You simply cannot have optimal joint health unless you commit to giving your body the sleep it needs to recover from daily damage to your joints.
That’s why adequate rest the night before is the first and most essential part of your Joyful Joints Routine. And it’s a commitment you have to be firm in making, because so many distractions are trying to keep us from quality sleep. New TV shows, calls from family and friends, the distractions of the internet. If you put those aside and stand firm on getting 8 hours of quality sleep, you will give your joints the repair and regeneration time they desperately need.
Here’s Dr. Juan talking about the essential importance of 8 hours of sleep:

Two: Be Active
It might seem counterintuitive that the habit of moving around and being active is a key part of a Joyful Joint Routine. If the joint hurts why do I need to keep moving?
Always consult with your doctor for your specific condition, but in most cases of joint pain or chronic injury - even arthritis - moving the joint and staying active is a key part of experiencing less pain and discomfort. This is because moving the joint keeps blood flowing to the area, may help keep scar tissue from forming, and helps maintain flexibility in the surrounding joints.
It is also essential to stay active in order to stay healthy. Even moderate amounts of exercise can have significant benefits to heart health, and can help avoid or control obesity and diabetes. That’s why it’s so important to keep moving, even if you avoid activities that focus on the joint that’s giving you pain.
Make the habit of being active the second part of your daily Joyful Joints Routine.
Three: Support Your Joints
When you’re sleeping, your body is using the nutrients it has on hand to recover from overuse and repair your joints. But what if it doesn’t have the tools it needs? This is where natural remedies and supplements can play a major part in your overall joint health.
There are three products in particular that may help you have healthier joints: Collagen, Glucosamine, and Vitamin D3
Collagen: Collagen is a protein with a big job. It helps keep nearly every part of your body healthy and strong, including your bones, skin, hair, and nails. Unfortunately collagen gradually breaks down as you age, which can impact both your health and appearance. Supplementation can help.
Glucosamine: Glucosamine is a naturally-occurring compound found in bone cartilage that helps cushion joints and prevent damage from daily wear and tear.
Vitamin D3: Vitamin D is naturally synthesized by the body when it comes into contact with sunlight. However, many of us don’t get enough healthy sunlight and therefore need to supplement with Vitamin D. It can help strengthen bones and teeth, and it can even boost your immunity.
Are you supplementing daily to support your joints? It’s the third and final part of a Joyful Joints Routine.
If you’re looking to find all three of these key supplements in one place, look no further than our Protect Your Bones and Joints Healthy Together Pack.
Relief from joint pain and stiffness is a wonderful thing. It’s well worth the 1-2-3 commitment of adopting a Joyful Joints Routine.
