The truth is, whether you are experiencing pain or not, a life of physical activity is wearing on your joints. The earlier you begin to address the health of your joints, the better your results will be.

As I took my car in for an oil change the other day, I found myself thinking about preventive maintenance. After all, the whole reason I take the car in for regular oil changes is to extend the life of the engine and reduce my chances of seeing the dreaded check engine light. In many ways, our bodies are much the same. 

While I think most of us would agree there’s great value in preventive health, there are some areas where it seems we often wait for the “check engine light,” or uncomfortable symptoms to appear. One of the most common areas of procrastination is joint health. Too often, people who enjoy walking, hiking, running or other physical activities wait until they “tweak” something or have pain before they think about their joints.

The truth is, whether you are experiencing pain or not, a life of physical activity is wearing on your joints. The earlier you begin to address the health of your joints, the better your results will be.

When we look at prolonging the health of the joint, we’re really talking about two things—controlling inflammation and nourishing cartilage. A product called Solgar No. 7 is an excellent choice as it addresses both needs in one product. It helps combat inflammation with extracts of boswellia, turmeric, ginger and white willow while providing essential nutrients for joints including UC-II standardized cartilage and vitamin C. Solgar No.7 has demonstrated improvement in joint comfort within just seven days. 

Please note, Solgar No. 7 is best suited for preventive use or someone who occasionally experiences mild “tweaks” and stiffness. If your symptoms are more persistent, please stop in to discuss other scientifically validated options.
