Joint Support

Joint regeneration is a long-term process, which requires patience. Because joints are an essential element of the musculoskeletal system, thanks to which we can move and perform daily duties, as well as practice physical activity, it is worth taking care of them.

With age, systematic abrasion of articular cartilage may occur. This is a natural process, which, however, can result in limiting mobility. Also, long-term, intense physical exertion and improperly performed exercises can contribute to the formation of various types of injuries and injuries, and thus to the restriction of freedom of movement.

So how to support joints and how to take care of their regeneration to be able to enjoy good health for as long as possible?

What are joints?

Joints are mobile connections between bones, which allow you to move. They are part of the human movement system and support the maintenance of proper posture.

We usually realize how important joints are in everyday life and functioning only when we start to feel various types of pain associated with them, as well as when injuries occur.

However, healthy joints allow full mobility. It is worth realizing that even the smallest movement of our body engages at least several joints at the same time.

When is it worth thinking about joint regeneration?

Contrary to appearances, problems related to joints do not only affect the elderly. This is an increasingly common problem also among young people. A common cause of pain and discomfort in the joints and musculoskeletal system may be overloading and performing too intense physical efforts.

Joint stiffness and degeneration can also be caused by incorrect exercise technique or too short time spent on joint regeneration. The problem may also result from the use of a poorly balanced diet, poor in valuable nutrients, important for the proper functioning of the musculoskeletal system.

So when is it worth thinking about joint regeneration?

As soon as pain and discomfort associated with joint stiffness appear. Leading an unhealthy lifestyle, struggling with overweight and obesity, it is also worth paying attention to their condition.

In addition, with age and the passage of time, physiological losses of articular cartilage may appear, which is why after about 40 years of age it is worth paying attention to joint support and their regeneration.

The best solution is prevention, which is why it is worth taking care of your joints throughout your life and reach for methods that accelerate their regeneration in the event of all kinds of injuries.

Natural methods of joint regeneration

Because a lot depends on lifestyle and joint regeneration is not only about the use of dietary supplements, it is worth paying attention to:

  • maintain a healthy body weight - Excessive body weight can be a burden on the whole body and in particular on the musculoskeletal system and joints. Excessive load may lead to increased pressure and excessive friction between the articular cartilage and thus an increased risk of injury or the development of osteoarthritis. Even a small reduction in body weight can reduce pain and positively affect the functioning of the joints.
  • regular physical activity- As you know, sport is health, and regular exercise can reduce pain and improve the functioning of the body. In addition, physical exercise can improve the nutrition of the joints and improve their blood supply. In the case of injuries, the selection of appropriate exercises should take place in consultation with a physiotherapist.
  • a healthy and balanced diet-Only a properly balanced and varied diet can support the body in proper functioning. Some components of the daily menu may intensify and others reduce joint pain. Therefore, it is worth limiting or eliminating products, which intensify inflammation from the diet, such as white bread, products rich in refined sugars, junk food or highly processed foods. However, it is worth including ingredients such as berries, vegetables or wholegrain cereal products in the menu.
  • applying cold or warm compresses- In the case of pain, compresses may be helpful. Cold can reduce the symptoms of inflammation, while warm - contribute to muscle relaxation.
  • rest - The time spent on regeneration is crucial for the proper functioning of the musculoskeletal system. Contrary to appearances, prolonged and intense physical effort is not conducive to health, but can contribute to the occurrence of injuries. Therefore, a valuable element of training are appropriately long breaks between activities.

Dietary supplements, which can support joint regeneration

As part of preventive activities, among people who may be exposed to joint damage, e.g. among athletes who regularly perform intense workouts, it is worth considering the use of dietary supplements, which can support joints and their regeneration.

Preparations, which can support joint regeneration should also be used among people who have already experienced various types of injuries.

Properly selected supplementation can be helpful in restoring efficiency and improving the functioning of the musculoskeletal system. So what substances are worth paying attention to?

  • Collagen is a compound, which is the building block of articular cartilage. It can regulate the flexibility of joints, as well as participate in the production of synovial fluid. In addition, collagen can increase the resistance of articular cartilage to loads.
  • MSM, or organic sulfur, also called methylsulfonylmethane, is a compound, which can reduce stiffness and pain in the joints and can also relieve inflammation within them. Organic sulfur can have a positive effect on the condition of synovial fluid and reduce the breakdown of cartilage, and what is more, it can provide nutrition to the joints.
  • Chondroitin can be one of the components of articular cartilage and thus can protect the joints from excessive friction. Chondroitin can also relieve pain associated with stiffening joints and support the production of synovial fluid.
  • Glucosamine can stimulate collagen synthesis and participate in the biosynthesis of proteoglycans, i.e. substances, which are part of articular cartilage.
  • Hyaluronic acid is a compound that may be part of synovial fluid. Thus, it can protect joints against excessive abrasion, ensure the proper functioning of joints and reduce pain associated with their stiffening.
  • Fatty acids from the omega-3 family - can regulate inflammation in the body, also in the joints, as well as relieve symptoms such as pain, swelling or stiffness of the joints.
  • Vitamin D - because this component can be a powerful modulator of the immune system, vitamin D can inhibit inflammation and thus contribute to the improvement of the condition of the joints and the entire musculoskeletal system.
