Aches and pains are something that most of us will suffer from at some point during our lifetime.
Muscle and joint pains can be caused by a wide number of things including sports injuries, bearing a lot of weight over time as well as repeated activity.
You therefore need to ensure that you are looking after both your muscles and your joints, so that you can enjoy life. And the good news is that there are some excellent nutritional supplements that you can take to help with this process.
Joints are the sections of our bodies where two bones meet and there are 360 of them in the human body. They make it possible for us to move.
Joint pain can affect just one of the joints in isolation, such as your knee, shoulder or hip, or many of your joints at once.
Joint pain can affect any part of the body and is increasingly common as you get older.
The knees are one of the most common areas where you are most likely to experience joint pain.
Knees are particularly at risk of damage because they hold up your whole body and when you think about it, that is quite a lot of pressure for any joint!
If you are carrying more weight than is healthy, then this extra load will put significantly more pressure on your knees and potentially cause you more pain. It is therefore important to keep to a healthy, balanced diet in order to maintain an optimum weight.
Your muscles are used throughout your daily activity and even more so when you work out.
Stretching, maintaining a protein-rich diet and using magnesium oil are all known to help support your muscles.
Magnesium oil can be applied directly to the muscle where it is absorbed directly into the skin tissue. This helps to replace the magnesium that has been lost from the muscles through use.
