How to maintain joint flexibility and health?

We know that ageing process affects muscles, bones and joints. Osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis are few bone and joint related health conditions observed in older people. 
How the elderly or ageing people can maintain joint flexibility and health?

The answer is that regular exercise, nutritious diet can help you achieve the goal of a healthy life even at old age. Regular exercise helps reverse joint stiffness, builds muscle, and boosts overall fitness. 

Increasing muscle and bone fitness through exercise can reduce or reverse the risk of disability and disease.
Inactivity decreases joint motion and flexibility. Inactivity can lead to weak muscles and deformed joints. One of the great benefits of exercise is to help you achieve and maintain your ideal weight which is highly beneficial to your joints.

Eating a higher quality diet. Vitamin D also supports a healthy immune response. Get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids from krill or high quality fish oil. Omega-3's support your joint health.
If you’re already using the above strategies, and still want additional support for your joints, consider using a ‘joint-specific’ supplement.

Ageing effects on muscles bones and joints

Ageing (aging) is a normal process for all living things. We usually observe that as we get older, our muscles or bones become weaker. Muscles, bones and joints are affected by the ageing process. Some joint and bone related health conditions are common in older people, such as Osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis. 
We are learning about "How ageing effects on muscles, bones and joints?"

Muscle and bone conditions common in older age: 
  • Osteoarthritis – the cartilage within the joint breaks down, causing pain and stiffness
  • Osteomalacia – the bones become soft, due to problems with the metabolism of vitamin D
  • Osteoporosis – the bones lose mass and become brittle. Fractures are more likely Rheumatoid arthritis – inflammation of the joints
  • Muscle weakness and pain – any of the above conditions can affect the proper functioning of the associated muscles.
