Hips and knees are designed to last a lifetime but injury, accidents and osteoarthritis can leave your joints worn out and very painful. Wear and tear can happen naturally over time but there are things you can do to get the best performance out of your hips and knees, perhaps for many years to come.
Like a machine with moving parts, our body needs oil to keep joints lubricated and healthy. Glucosamine is produced naturally within our bodies to support the structure and function of joints and cartilage. If our bodies do not produce sufficient glucosamine this can limit the ability to repair wear and damage in our joints. Omega-3 found in oily fish like salmon has been linked to reduced joint pain and it is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E also has anti-inflammatory properties you'll get plenty by adding avocado, sunflower seeds and nuts to your diet.
Calcium helps keep bones and teeth strong. Public Health of England advises 10 micrograms of Vitamin D everyday, Vitamin D supports normal bones and muscle function.
