Evolution Is A PAIN?!
Billions of years of evolution have given mankind physical dominance. Natural selection and evolution created our bodies to be the dominant life on Earth. Think about that for a second… We have the physical potential to take over the world! So why then does something SEEMINGLY inconsequential like joint pain have the ability to stop us in our tracks?! Did you think I was gonna get all “science guy” on ya? Well, I am!
Maintaining healthy joints and preventing joint pain/disease doesn’t get talked about nearly enough. It has connotations that remind us of our parents and grandparents, and it’s far too easy to dismiss it. So let me tell you all that we should stop this right now!!! We will go from being Gym Rats to the rats that gyms put poison down for just to keep them out without healthy joints! Ok… weird metaphors aside, let’s take this seriously! The common misconception is that Joint pain refers to our knees and hands. This is absurd. In our spine alone, there are over 100 different joints. That is over 100 various potential sources of pain in just our spines. Most Chiropractors also recommend that if you’re 30 or older, you should be taking preventative steps to avoid joint pain. So how do we prevent Joint pain?
The common misconception is that Joint pain refers to our knees and hands. This is absurd. In our spine alone, there are over 100 different joints. That is over 100 various potential sources of pain in just our spines. Most Chiropractors also recommend that if you’re 30 or older, you should be taking preventative steps to avoid joint pain. So how do we prevent Joint pain? There is one active ingredient that you find in almost every single Joint Supp. Glucosamine. It’s a natural chemical compound in our bodies that keep our cartilage healthy and squishy (for lack of a better word). Unfortunately, as with all our naturally produced chemicals and hormones, our Glucosamine levels dip as we get older, creating joint pain, arthritis, back pain, and an almost endless list of things we need to avoid. Glucosamine is naturally found in certain traditional foods like chicken soup, Seafood, and beef broth. However, dietary restrictions or a busy life can stop us from getting what we need. Taking Glucosamine-loaded SUPPs helps prevent the degradation of our cartilage and even helps stimulate cartilage growth in our joints that need it. Additionally, Glucosamine is recommended for individuals to prevent joint pain AND treat it. So regardless of your age and your joint health, it should be an essential part of your SUPP routine and needs to be something we all think more about. After all, humankind cannot continue to be the physically dominant species on Earth if we can’t walk anywhere after the age of 40. As we know that Glucosamine is the active ingredient we are looking for, now we can tailor our SUPP search towards what else will benefit us. The many different products on the market all include Glucosamine, so what else will they give us? We can treat Joint Supplements like we are haggling for the best deal possible.
One of my favorites for joint health is Joyful Joints by Vital Alchemy. It has everything our bodies need for joint health and rehabilitation (if needed). Additionally, its ingredients will go as far as a SUPP can go to create extraordinary preventative measures. Yes, it’s loaded with Glucosamine… That’s a given. But Joyful Joints also have natural anti-inflammatories like Turmeric and Bromelain (Pineapple extract). Combining this with its Vitamin C and Cissus Quadrangularis, your joints and bones have everything they need to stay healthy while we continue to push our bodies further and further. My favorite aspect of Joyful Joints has to be the addition of Hyaluronic Acid. It’s an additional supplement that our joints need to stay healthy. It creates more vital Synovial fluid in our cartilage. Basically, that is the fluid that bathes our joints and functions as joint lubrication. Hyaluronic Acid isn’t something you see in every Joint supplement; however, it should be! Joyful Joints is one of the most well-rounded Joint SUPP’s and should be everyone’s ‘go-to’ supplement in Joint health.
Turmeric 95 is an enhanced form of curcumin that combines Hi-Tech’s Cyclosome delivery system, provides more significant benefits than its relative native curcumin. Native curcumin is poorly absorbed and rapidly metabolized before much of its benefits can be implemented. With Tumeric 95s, advanced and effective delivery, it helps with inflammation in a major way. We have all heard the buzz around Tumeric, and Hi Tech Pharms did not waste time in the lab making sure to optimize its potential benefits.
Joint and Tissue by Myogenix was formulated to target both hard and soft tissues by working with your body’s immune system. So Myogenix was “up in the lab with a pen and a pad” (only the cool will get that) and created UCII’. UCII’ is undenatured type II collagen, a revolutionary new dietary ingredient that works with the immune system to promote healthy joints through oral tolerization. This helps the body tell the difference between good stuff, like ingredients in supplements, and bad stuff like Bacteria. So yea… Myogenix did the damn thing.
In today’s world, we are pushing our bodies to new physical limits, and without proper Joint support, we cannot continue this. So get wise and treat your body to the Joint health it NEEDS.
