Top 10 tips to maintain healthy joints

  • Take 250–500 mg glucosamine sulfate(GS) three times a day with meals. GS promotes healthy joint cartilage and maintains joint fluid thickness and elasticity.
  • For a one-two joint-promoting punch, eat plenty of essential fatty acids like salmon and mackerel are best...raw nuts, seeds, and flaxseed. Put some ground-up flaxseed on your cereal or add it to your shakes or smoothies.
  • Combine GS with 200–300 mg chondroitin sulfate, which promotes healthy joints and elasticity of tendons and ligaments; as well as natural anti-inflammatories like feverfew, white willow bark, bromelain, Boswellia and cat's claw.
  • Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)is an organic sulfur compound that has been used traditionally to help your body build cartilage, collagen, and connective tissue—all of which are necessary to keep your healthy joints strong and pliable. I began using MSM after a particularly bad bout with my shoulder and I really attribute much of the improvement I experienced to this remarkable nutrient*.
  • Drink 1 or 2 cups daily of ginger or green tea a natural inflammatory to promote healthy joints.
  • Exercise regularly at least three times a week—to increase muscle strength, and restore range of motion and flexibility.
  • Take a 4:1 ratio of omega-3 oils (fish and flaxseed) and omega-6 oils (evening primrose, borage oil or black currant oil). In other words, if you consume 4,000 mg of fish oil, take 1,000 mg of one or a combination of omega-6 oils.
  • Avoid sodas, caffeine, and chocolate.
  • Take 250–500 mg daily of the herb curcumin, a natural pain reliever without the tendency to trigger gastrointestinal bleeding.
