Joint Health for Active Consumers

Article-Joint Health for Active Consumers

Joint Health
Active consumers enjoy a range of activities, from long walks and yoga to obstacle course competitions and rock climbing. In joint health research, active consumers can have more acute joint symptoms—especially following exercise—than healthy subjects not recruited for their activity levels. As such, it is important to weigh the activity factor in joint research to see what has helped these consumers recover and maintain good structure and function. Takeaways include: *Boswellia extract, MSM and natural eggshell membrane (NEM) may offer anti-inflammatory mechanisms. *Ingredients such as chondroitin, glucosamine and collagen are crucial to joint structure, function. *Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), compounds found in synovial fluid, are important to joint health.
