Especially for people that work full-time – having the time to regularly prepare and cook their own food can, simply, be just too time consuming; which inevitably means we don’t eat enough fresh food, vegetables and fruit to get a balanced diet of vitamins and minerals. Whilst a lack of vitamins and minerals can be compensated for by taking a combine multi-vitamin and mineral supplement – there are other supplements we need that a diet of convenience/supermarket food simply can’t provide us with. Some of the most crucial supplements missing can be those that will ensure that we continue to enjoy healthy joints – so this article guides on the two main healthy joints supplements you need to consider.
Cod liver oil.
If you’ve been blessed with fairly healthy joints then they probably won’t mean they start to become a problem until you’re nearing or in retirement. Unfortunately, for that age group cod liver oil has particularly bad associations with being made to drink spoonfuls of the stuff as children. Well, if you now have problems with your joints, put aside those fears as taking cod liver oil will prove tremendously beneficial to your joints and there are new preparations of cod liver oil that make taking it all the more palatable. Cod liver oil has four supplements in that help to keep us healthy and two of them in particular work on our joints. DHA is a constituent of cod liver oil that helps maintain healthy nerves and EPA which is an anti-inflammatory and will reduce any pain due to stiff joints and even arthritis, which is important as it will help us to keep our joints moving. Cod liver oil also has vitamin A in it to keep our skin healthy and young and vitamin D, so important for healthy bones.
