The temperature is starting to drop, but it’s still the perfect time to make the most of the outdoors before the cold really kicks in.

Exercise keeps you fit and energised, balances your mood, and helps to improve sleep. To really reap the benefits of exercise, you need to keep your joints healthy, strong, and in tip-top condition.

As good as weight training and cardio exercise are for your body, they can cause wear and tear on joints as a result of years of repetitive motion and overuse, preventing you from lifting weights and doing cardio as often as you might like. The better your joints work, the easier it is to stay physically active and be able to enjoy all the activities that keep you youthful, healthy, and in good shape.

So, in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise, taking supplements regularly can help you maintain healthy joints and an active lifestyle.

Whilst there are a lot of natural ingredients that care for joints, glucosamine and chondroitin have gained immense popularity as key ingredients to help keep joints healthy and flexible enough to serve as efficient shock absorbers and help to combat the injuries from training and repetitive exercises, or by the natural effects of ageing.

Used by athletes and active people of all ages for maintenance of healthy joints, glucosamine and chondroitin are the first line ingredients for most people with joint complaints. These ingredients contribute to overall joint health, giving the freedom to stay active.

Glucosamine preserves the structural integrity of joints, helping to ease stiffness and maintain the range of motion. Glucosamine builds and repairs cartilage, while chondroitin cushions joints, lending to comfort and better mobility. These two ingredients are the perfect partnership to keep you moving.

Each capsule contains a full dose of scientifically-proven glucosamine sulfate plus chondroitin. Also included are key herbs ginger, turmeric and celery to further support comfort of joint movement.

Twice as nice:

The joint health benefits of glucosamine and chondroitin are greatly enhanced when taken in conjunction with fish oil. Fish oils contain  mega 3 fatty acids which have been shown to support joint mobility.
