Healthy joint is something we enjoy but usually take for granted until it causes us great discomforts – JOINT PAINS.

A joint is where two or more bones meet.  It is made up of different parts that work together to support our body and provide ease of mobility.  Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of PAIN.  Imagine your life if you had difficulty walking, running or doing any number of daily activities due to joint pains.

Joint Pain

Joint  pain is a chronic condition characterized by the breakdown of the joints cartilage causing the bones to rub against each other resulting to various symptoms such as tenderness, stiffness, creaking, locking of joints and even local inflammation.

Causes of Joint Pains

As one ages, the natural Glucosamine found in our cartilages and the synovial fluids that lubricates the joints slowly diminishes causing our cartilages to thin out and lose its flexibility to cushion the movements of our bone joints.  Other factors that may lead to Joint Pain are:

  • Injury
  • Running, Weightlifting, basketball and other sports activities that contribute to the wear and tear of the joint cartilage
  • Being overweight
  • Genetic factors
  • Complications from other diseases like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and gout

How to Protect Your Joints in Sports Activities

  • Wear proper sports attire and gears
  • Do stretches and warm ups
  • Observe proper posture and movement
  • Give your body time to rest and rehabilitate

Prevention of Joint Pains

Joint Pain can be prevented by following a healthy lifestyle, careful use of joints and taking a supplement of Glucosamine Sulfate early in life to arrest the degeneration of  the joint cartilage.  Studies show that the daily intake of 1500mg of Glucosamine Sulfate maintains healthy joints and rehabilitate damaged cartilage to regain pain-free joint mobility.

The way to really treat joint pain is by alleviating its symptoms through lifestyle modification, proper exercise, manual therapy, use of devices, painkillers and a dietary supplement of Glucosamine Sulfate like GLUCOSAMINE MAX Once-A-Day Nutritional Powder Drink from Herbcare.  Each sachet can deliver a full effective daily dose of 1,500mg of Glucosamine in the body.

Glucosamine Sulfate dietary supplements are generally safe for adults 18 years old and above.  Caution is however advised to people with bleeding disorders, shellfish allergies, iodine hypersensitivity, and those taking insulin and antidiabetic medications.  The use of Glusosamine is also discouraged during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
