Joint-Health

August 07, 2014

After years of lifting weights as part of a well-rounded fitness regimen, some people  find that although their muscles can lift more weight, their joints seem unable to handle the extra strain. So what can they do to strengthen and protect joints during those strength sessions?
  • Add some magnesium and essential fatty acids to your diet. Foods that contain magnesium include green vegetables. Spinach, beans, peas, nuts and seeds are excellent sources of magnesium. Essential fatty acids are the good fats found in fish such as mackeral and salmon.
  • Add a little spice to your life! Spices not only make your food taste better, they're good for you. Spices that act as natural anti-inflammatory's include tumeric, rosemary and ginger.
At the end of your busy day, sit down with a cup of green tea ... it can help bring relief to those aching knees and elbows.
