Over the counter supplements and healthy joints

 

 Glucosamine, a supplement made from the shells of crab, lobster and shrimp, has been shown to ease joint pain and stiffness, particularly in people with osteoarthritis of the knee. Some studies suggest that it may contribute to cartilage repair.

Don't Let Joint Pain Slow You Down

The joints in your body are involved in every activity that you do.
Simple movements such as walking, bending, and turning require the use
of hip and knee joints and normally all of these joints work together
and move without pain, but when the joint becomes injured or diseased,
the resulting pain can severely limit your ability to move and work.
Whether you're considering a total replacement of your joints, or just
beginning to explore treatment, OMNI is here to help you. Our website

Proper diet and it's benefits to joint health

Break it up. Instead of eating two or three big meals each day, try spreading out your munching into a number of smaller meals throughout the day. Research shows that grazing throughout the day boosts your metabolism, helping your body run more efficiently (and keeping the pounds off).

Curtail your caffeine intake. While you may need that extra burst of energy in the morning, try and resist those second and third cups of coffee. Studies show that the extra caffeine can weaken your bones.

How To Keep Feet Healthy

The average human foot holds 26 bones and 33 joints. It is important to
take care of your feet because if your feet are in pain it could effect
the knees, hips, and spine. There are many ways to improve the health of
your feet. The most important of those is that you should always
practice good hygiene for your feet, that means cleaning your feet,
trimming your toenails, refining your nail edges, and pushing your
cuticles back. It's not about looking good, it's about feeling good.
