Help for Arthritis Pain

According to the U.S. National Institute of Health, more than 20 million Americans suffer from the pain of arthritis. The most common, osteoarthritis, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis, is caused by the breakdown and loss of cartilage in the joints.

Ironically, the best thing for arthritis may be to increase physical activity. Walking or gentle exercise like swimming, eases stiff joints, improves flexibility, and elevates mood.

Nutritional supplements that contain glucosamine and chondroitin may help repair and rebuild lost cartilage, thus reducing pain and inflammation. Glucosamine, a substance found naturally in the body, stimulates the formation and repair of cartilage. Chondroitin, another natural substance, helps prevent the further breakdown of cartilage. These two supplements have been widely used for years in Europe to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis. [Copyright © 2004 World Image Naturals, Inc. ]
