The 5 Keys for Healthy and Flexible Joints


Each movement of the body depends on the health of the joints – from the bending of the knees or the back, to simple walking or writing. It is very important to take care of the joints and the cartilage that cushions the bones, preventing them from rubbing. With the age, after too much weight or injury, the cartilage slowly wears off and sometimes inflammation in the joints occurs. The active and balanced lifestyle will support your overall health and your joints together with a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.


However, there are some key factors for healthy joints that could prevent or heal inflammations and help you to get rid of the pain. Prevention is the best cure, especially when we talk about the joints as for them to recover back to their initial state is not a fast and easy process.

Protein production

The collagen that your body produces, is used for many things as it basically holds everything together like in the skin, muscles, the joints and everywhere else too. For its production, you need a number of amino acids from which the collagen threads will be created. MSM and  glucosamine sulfate are the supplements that improve the collagen productions and some people even intake hydrolyzed collagen type 2 to supports the joints. The fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as the sprouts contain amino acids too. You can also add some forms of plant or whey protein to your diet if you want to increase the collagen and muscles in the body.

Omega 3 fatty acids

There are some foods that you have to include in your diet in order to support the joints, also the heart and the blood vessels. The natural sources of omega 3 fatty acids are chia and flax seeds, wild-caught salmon, sardines, mackerel, walnuts. The good fats like olive oil, avocado, fish and other plant oils are very beneficial for the health of the joints and other systems in the body like the cardiovascular and digestive ones. On the other hand, it is good to avoid refined sugar, trans fats and alcohol as they might make you feel stiff and your joints less flexible but more painful.

Essential oils

The massage with some essential oils as well as the aroma lamps usage could provide great relief and support for your joints and overall health, most of them have antioxidant and antiseptic effects on the body. The essential oils have very light molecules that quite quickly could reach your bloodstream and fight against the inflammations in the joints. The ginger, frankincense, myrrh, orange, turmeric, black pepper, lavender, rose, peppermint, jasmine, clary sage, bergamot and chamomile essential oils could be used diluted in base oils like jojoba, macadamia, coconut etc. and be applied locally with massage movements on the joints and the skin.


The proper moderate movement, the good stretching and muscles workout are great for the joints as they have to be used in order to keep them healthy. Yoga and other exercise systems like pilates, body shaping, dancing etc. will increase your durability and flexibility. In the same time they are teaching your muscles  how to make the right movements that will not injure the joints. The daily posture and ordinary activities like walking, sitting and lying on the bed sometimes are not done in the natural way and a harmful habit is developed. You have to pay attention to how you use your joints, especially if you like long walks or running in the park, as if these are done the wrong way that may put too much weight on the knee joint for example. The excess weight is also a problem for the joints, so the exercise routine will help you keeping up the good shape and stay strong and toned.
