Everyone feel a little soreness in the shoulder or a twinge in the knee. But recent study shows that women are more affected than men. The CDC estimates that among 70 million Americans who suffer from arthritis and chronic joint symptoms, 41 million of whom are women. Some of the risk factors include hormone fluctuations and their inability to deal with pain psychologically.
In addition, women are more prone to osteoarthritis. Approximately 27 million Americans have this condition and 60% of them are women. They are also more likely to get rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders that cause joint pain such as scleroderma, multiple sclerosis, and lupus.
Joint paint, which is often caused by inflammation, may hinder you to do the activities you love. But the good news is that there are natural supplements to help ease joint pain.
Omega 3. Studies show omega 3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation and morning stiffness. The study participants also exhibited increased strength, reduced joint swelling, tenderness, and stiffness, and overall pain. The best sources of omega 3s are salmon, sardines, anchovies, oysters, rainbow trout, walnuts, flaxseeds, and chia seeds.
Circumin. Circumin also helps with pain and join inflammation. Adding turmeric can spice up your meals (sprinkle some in veggies or soup!)
Vitamin D3. Your vitamin D levels might be low if you experience arthritic pain. Be sure to take your daily dose of vitamin D3 to help reduce inflammation.
Glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM. Glucosamine is essential for a healthy cartilage. Moreover, chondroitin has the ability to slow the progression of osteoarthritis and is often found in combination with glucosamine. Methylsulonylmethane (MSM) also gives a healing effect on the joints and reduces inflammation.
