In honor of Bone and Joint Health Week, we want you to put one thing at the top of your list this week…that is, to get moving! Stiff joints and a loss of range of motion are not only painful, but they limit our activity, like the Tin Man from “The Wizard of Oz”. Luckily, we don’t have to carry around an oil can to lubricate our joints every day.
If you sit at a desk, make it a priority to take breaks throughout the day. Take a quick walk around the block or just stand up and stretch. The more you move, the less stiff you will be, and your joints will thank you later in life. Just the act of moving, along with eating a proper diet and getting adequate sleep, can help maintain bone and joint health, as can two important Genesis PURE™ products.
Sulfur is a mineral and element naturally found in the protein of plants, animals and humans. Unfortunately, the body cannot make sulfur on its own; therefore it must be obtained from a variety of foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and grains. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a naturally occurring dietary form of sulfur, is the primary ingredient in Organic Sulfur (99.9% pure distilled MSM sourced in North America, to be exact), helps with the formation of collagen, the supportive protein of tendons, cartilage, connective tissue, and bone.
- Can improve flexibility and mobility by promoting joint function and health*
- Can help alleviate discomfort that may follow challenging exercise sessions*
- Can help promote healthy skin, hair, and nails
One of our five superfruit products, Mangosteen, can also help with joint function and mobility. The Mangosteen fruit is very high in xanthones, powerful phytonutrients or antioxidants that help to maintain a natural balance of inflammatory responses in the body. In fact, Mangosteen is considered to be one of the richest source of xanthones. (Read more about phytonutrients in the blog post, “What’s for dinner tonight? PHYTONUTRIENTS!”)
Studies suggest that xanthones may promote healthy bodily functions, including supporting the body’s natural defenses, neutralizing free radicals and supporting joint function.* And all of Genesis PURE’s superfruits are 100 percent natural and are not diluted with other juices.
So what are you going to do this week? That’s right…you’re going to move! Weight-baring exercises are the most beneficial when it comes to bone and joint health. Take a walk, do yard work, climb stairs, or dance to your favorite music. Make diet and sleep your priorities, too, and you’ll be enjoying a lifestyle of Whole Health in no time.
