10 tips for taking care of it every day

With age, joint pain can become difficult to bear on a daily basis without the help of medication. However, there are other, non-drug solutions to reduce this pain in a “gentler” way.

As a reminder and before presenting these ten tipsknow that a holistic approach combining targeted food supplements and topical care can be an effective solution to support joint health.

  1. Maintain a healthy weight.
  2. Regularly practice low-impact exercises such as swimming or cycling.
  3. Strengthen the muscles around the joints.
  4. Adopt correct posture (sit straight with your back against the back of the chair, take regular breaks to stretch and change position if you sit for long periods…).
  5. Avoid sudden and repetitive movements.
  6. Wear shoes with good arch support to reduce pressure on the joints of your feet, ankles and knees.
  7. Stay hydrated enough: A general recommendation is to drink around 8 glasses of water per day. However, it is important to note that this recommendation may vary from person to person.
  8. Consume anti-inflammatory foods such as berries (blueberries, strawberries and raspberries) and turmeric which are rich in antioxidants, such as flavonoids and anthocyanins, and marine collagen which have anti-inflammatory effects and can help protect joints from damage.
  9. Avoid smoking and limit alcohol consumption: Smoking and alcohol consumption can trigger or worsen inflammation throughout the body, including the joints. Chronic inflammation can damage cartilage and joint tissue, contributing to the development of diseases such as arthritis.
  10. Finally, as stated previously, it is good to take regular breaks during prolonged activities; a break of 5 to 10 minutes approximately every hour.
