Young or old, exercise can put stress on the joints that leads to degenerative conditions over time, potentially making it harder to maintain an active lifestyle. This Report offers closer look at how exercise impacts joints, plus the research-backed natural ingredients that can help ease discomfort.
As athletes age, it's an unavoidable fact that strenuous exercise can result in post-workout soreness, which is caused by inflammation in the joints and tissues. Too much inflammation can make it harder for tissues to heal, and it can also cause painboth of which tend to increase with age. The increased inflammation, coupled with genetics and diet, can start to wear away cartilage cells, potentially developing into osteoarthritis (OA) or a joint disorder. To minimize exercise-induced inflammation, the goal of athletes should be to keep joint cartilage cells healthy and fed with the right research-backed nutrients, such as collagen, omega-3s, probiotics and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)
