How to cope with winter joint mobility

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Staying active during the winter months can be difficult enough with less sunlight hours and rainy, dreary skies.

If you experience joint stiffness, you know that cold,wet weather can make symptoms feel worse and harder to cope with. It’s typical to become more sedentary during the winter time and this lack of activity can lead to telltale twinges – joints that usually afford you with strength and mobility become stiff and creaky.

What is a joint?

When all your joints components are healthy, you move without friction, stiffness or discomfort. However, when any one of these parts starts to break down, you can experience bone-on-bone contact, aggravation, and further joint destruction. The symptoms of joint wear and tear can come suddenly and without warning, or the onset may be gradual with occasional stiffness that can initially be ignored.  

Flex your joints into shape

Before freedom of movement starts to impact on everyday activities, you can give your joints a helping hand to support their ongoing healthy function and mobility.

Your joints can be supported by a unique combination of nutrients that nourish joint tissues and help to keep the joints functioning as they should.

Krill oil contains the powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin, that enhances turmeric’s action against free radicals.

Harvested from the pristine waters of New Zealand, green lipped mussel extract offers support for joint cushioning, lubrication and movement.
