No Matter Your Age, Joint Health Should be on Your Radar
Unfortunately, joint issues can impact anyone at any time. A lifetime of walking, exercising and moving can all take their toll on your joints, your body’s natural shock absorbers. However, while cumulative use can cause discomfort and pain in your joints, the continued motion of your joints is actually paramount to their health! This is because your joints need some amount of moderate mechanical loading for their maintenance and things like cartilage integrity. So, too little use can be just as detrimental to your joints as overuse.
If you want to keep moving, but grinding, achy joints, shooting pain, restricted mobility, swelling, and stiffness are stopping you, supplementing with AstaMatrix® can make a world of difference! AstaMatrix® is rich in omega-3 EPA & DHA and other natural joint support nutrients like astaxanthin, delta-tocotrienol, and phospholipids, which can help reduce joint swelling, tenderness, and pain while improving joint mobility and comfort. This means that you can keep on moving freely for years to come!
Your Omega-3:6 Ratio & Your Joint Health; Why It Matters
While joint discomfort can be triggered by many different underlying problems, two main culprits contributing to it; chronic inflammation and oxidative damage. Luckily, inflammation has an "on" and "off" switch that is controlled heavily by essential fatty acids. So, whether you are looking to protect your joints from the normal wear and tear that comes with an active lifestyle, or help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with arthritic conditions, take a good look at your diet. How’s your omega-3 fatty acid intake looking?
Specifically, omega-6 initiates your body’s response to inflammation, while Omega-3s help shut it down. They do this through the regulation of both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory chemicals known as eicosanoids. Naturally, if your omega-3:6 ratio is tipped too much in favor of omega-6, you are helping create an environment primed for inflammation, without even knowing it!
Turn Inflammation “Off” With AstaMatrix®
If you feel like inflammation is holding you back, then turn it off! One way to this is by balancing your essential fatty acid intake in favor of omega-3s. While doing this would be a giant step to protecting your joints from damage caused by inflammation, it’s not always easy to do. That’s because the modern Western Diet is full of processed, omega-6 rich foods, while at the same time it lacks whole foods rich in omega-3s. That’s where AstaMatrix® can help! It will not only provide your body with the Omega-3 EPA & DHA it needs to keep your joints healthy, but the fatty acids in AstaMatrix® work synergistically with the other joint support nutrients in the formula to protect your joints from inflammation and oxidative damage, all while alleviating unpleasant symptoms like joint tenderness, stiffness and pain.
