Relief From Arthritis And Joint Pains Naturally !!
Joint Pain often comes along as we age, our joints start to give up & gradually the pain also starts to grow. It is winters that are known to cause maximum damage to the joints. This is mainly due to external cold & dryness which amplifies the problem and makes it difficult for us to bear the associated swelling & pain. It is usually during this shift of weather that the symptoms of possible arthritis may start to surface.
Here are some brilliant natural assistance that could be supplemented for relieving joint pains:
1. Triphala Guggul
It is an age-old & tested herbal preparation and something which Ayurveda absolutely recommends, especially in case of joint pains. Triphala is a mix of 3 incredibly healthy herbs viz. Baheda, Amla and Harad. This is a great source of antioxidants and detoxifying agents. Guggulu is a gum resin obtained from Myrrh. It adds an extra share of anti-inflammatory benefits to the combination. Along with polyphenols and flavonoids, these act against the inflammation causing agents, thus relieving joint pains.
Boswellia serrata is basically the gum resin extracted from Boswellia tree. It combats a variety of inflammatory issues in our body, and research swears by its contribution in treating some of the severest cases of arthritis.
Calcium is one of the most obvious must have in our diet. It is also recommended to be taken as an essential supplement in order to make up for any possible lack of this particular nutrient in our body. Calcium deficiency has maximum chances of making us prone to many bones and joint related issues. Therefore, make sure to add dark green, leafy vegetables, low-fat milk, cheese & other dairy products to your diet. On the other hand, you need to ensure that your body is absorbing that calcium. That’s why it is important to sunbathe and include sufficient vitamin D in our everyday diet.
Glucosamine is a chemical compound that is found in our body, is something that naturally contributes in building and taking care of the cartilage, which provides natural cushioning between our joint bones. With age, the amount of Glucosamine our body creates becomes insufficient & that is when there comes a need for us to look for supplements. Adding sufficient Glucosamine levels help in easing the pain and the subsequent stiffness of the joints.
5. Salmon Oil
Sufficient inclusion of Salmon Oil in our diet helps in maintaining healthy, supple joints. Salmon oil is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. It reduces the inflammation & therefore, any possible progression of joint pains & arthritis. Complimented with regular exercise, the Salmon Oil also ensures ample flow of blood to our joints and maintains their overall health and mobility.
