Our bodies have been created with a beautiful synergy of movement. We can bend and flex in all sorts of ways and push ourselves to new levels. The fitness journey is full of all sorts of turns, angles, and speed bumps along the way. As you exercise and work the tissue, some breakdown can naturally occur. This can lead to inflammation, stiffness, soreness, and in some cases can restrict the freedom of movement we once enjoyed. In addition, as our bodies age, the production of cartilage can decrease, causing that once cushy joint to have less cartilage leaving us with pain in places we aren’t used to. By adding some simple supplements to your routine, you can avoid these common ailments. Rx Joint Health combines three effective ingredients to promote joint health. Chondroitin is a major component of cartilage. It helps to keep cartilage hydrated and may block destructive enzymes that break down cartilage. Osteoarthritis pain and symptoms are shown to decrease with use of chondroitin supplements. Glucosamine acts as a building block for cartilage, tendons, and connective tissues. Without an adequate natural supply, various forms of arthritis can develop. Benefits of glucosamine include prevention of cartilage destruction, easing of swelling and joint pain, and increased flexibility. Additionally, it protects joints from further damage. Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM), also called “organic sulfur” is used to reduce muscle, back, and arthritic pain and inflammation. Body Beautiful is a customized blend of vitamins and minerals, with added collagen. Not only does Body Beautiful provide collagen, but enhances its production. Collagen is a long, fibrous structural protein made up of amino acids such as glucine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine. Comprising 75-85% of skin, muscle, and connective tissue, collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body. Collagen is the connective tissue that gives skin its firmness, suppleness, and skin elasticity. Collagen has great tensile strength, and is the main component of fascia, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone, teeth, hair and nails. Essential to the repair and rebuilding of connective tissue, collagen can promote the healing of injuries faster and relieve joint pain. Rx Oils Flax uses flaxseed oils for its source of Omega 3 in this Omega 3, 6, 9 complex supplement. Flaxseed is high in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which is a type of Omega 3 fatty acid that can be converted to EPA and DHA. Omega 3 fatty acids are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce joint inflammation. Some people find they use fewer anti-inflammatory drugs for joint aches and pains when using flax oil supplements. Through complex prostaglandin changes in joint tissues, Rx Oils Flax may support healthy joint function and movement. With the use of one or all of the three supplements above, you will support your body’s joints, cushion those tendons, and be free to move!
