Nothing is more of a goal killer than joint pain. Pain makes us question and rationalize our way out of important workouts, and for those who decide to push through the pain, there is a lingering question about whether or not we’re causing serious damage to our joints.
Young or old, joint pain is universal, and we all have to deal with it. Or do we? What if we dealt with this joint pain before it even starts? After tough workouts, we expect and maybe even look forward to the sore muscles that follow. Sore muscles are a sign of an effective, hard workout, but what about those sore elbows and knees? Dealing with sore joints is frustrating and sometimes scary but can it be prevented? The answer is YES. In many cases, joint pain can be prevented. And if the pain is already occurring – well, in many cases it can be reversed. Max Joint Relief is an effective preventative, as well as natural treatment for your joint pain.
Max Muscle Nutrition’s synergistic joint formula, Joint Relief 2.0, provides glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, vitamin D3, ginger, and turmeric in the proper doses for maximum joint relief.
Glucosamine is a chemical made by our bodies that plays a key role in the health of our joints. Oral supplementation of glucosamine is highly recommended for damaged connective tissue. Studies show that glucosamine has helped individuals with osteoarthritis and other chronic degenerative articular disorders. Long term, glucosamine has shown to be more effective than ibuprofen in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knees. In addition to its structural role in connective tissue, glucosamine supports the youthful elasticity of skin, arteries, veins and heart valves.
Chondroitin is a molecule found naturally in our bodies and is a major component of cartilage. Studies have shown that supplementation of chondroitin is an effective treatment of arthritis pain and joint problems. It improves blood circulation to the joints allowing glucosamine to enter the inflamed joints, repairing and reducing pain. Taken together in specific doses, glucosamine (1,500 mg per day) and chondroitin (1,200 mg per day) have shown to be effective in relieving arthritic and sore joints. Supplementing with both glucosamine and chondroitin daily can improve circulation and limit the risk of pain and or injury.
Methylsulfonylmethane, commonly known as MSM is an organic form of sulfur and a potent antioxidant. MSM has the ability to neutralize inflammation and may be helpful in reducing chronic pain. Other benefits of MSM include reducing stress, reducing muscle soreness and muscle cramps, detoxifying the body, alleviating symptoms of allergies and more.
Ginger is helpful in soothing tight, sore muscles. It contains powerful compounds called gingerols that help reduce inflammation. Supplementation has shown to reduce muscle pain and stiff joints caused by exercise. Studies have compared ginger to ibuprofen as an effective anti-inflammatory agent but without the side effects.
Turmeric is a spice that contains curcuminoids, which are phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant protection. Turmeric helps to maintain healthy digestion, something that is critical for healthy pain-free joints. It is also good for your liver, your immune system, and your skin, heart health, memory and more!
