As we age, our joints tend to give us pain from time to time and in some cases the pain can be considerable. But why does this happen as we get older?
In essence, at the end of each of our bones, is a smooth lining of protective cartilage and other soft tissues that also produce a liquid called synovial fluid. It is the combination of this soft cushion of cartilage and the synovial fluid that helps our joints remain mobile and healthy. However with aging, the cartilage can deteriorate from wear and tear and the protective membranes can tend to dry out, allowing the bones to start rubbing against each other. This in turn leads to inflammation and pain.
Arthritis is the most common form of pain in older adults and can affect knees, hips, hands, spine and sometimes shoulders. Exercising to strengthen weakened muscles and move the joints will help improve function and also reduce pain.
LIAVITA also provides a variety of nutrients that are used in joint health products such Natural Butanedisulfonate SAM-e.
