Summer is a favourite season for many. The days are longer and warmer, providing lots of opportunities to spend time outside and be active.

For some, hours are spent gardening, taking evening walks or bike rides, spending weekends with family and friends at the beach, going on picnics, or having a backyard barbeque with a good old family game of cricket. For others, just keeping up with your children or grandchildren over the summer period can increase your activity significantly.

Unfortunately, you may be feeling a little more challenged with the increased activity of summer, especially if you notice that your joints do not feel as comfortable as they once were. Hips, knees and wrists can become stiff and tired, which may result in a loss of enjoyment in activities that you once found enjoyable.

Fortunately, there are approaches you can take to support your joint health. When looking at supplementation, it can get a bit daunting as there are many different joint health supplements on the market. A well-tried and studied supplement for joint health is glucosamine.

Glucosamine supports the formation and repair of cartilage in joints. Cartilage is the slippery, shock-absorbing tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. It allows the bones to move smoothly against each other. Glucosamine supplementation can provide protection around the joints to support cushioning and mobility.

When choosing a glucosamine supplement, it is important you choose one with the correct dose. Studies have shown that 1,500 milligrams of glucosamine is required daily to provide the level of support an adult joint requires.

Each capsule contains 1,500 milligrams of glucosamine, combined with chondroitin and potent supporting nutrients for optimum joint health.
