A joint is the connection between two bones. Joints and their surrounding structures allow you to bend your joints, e.g. elbows and knees, hips and legs, back and head. Smooth tissue called cartilage and synovium and a lubricant called synovial fluid cushion the joints so that bones do not rub together. As we get older, injury - even sitting the wrong way or carrying too much weight, can wear and tear your cartilage. This may lead to a reaction in your joint that can damage your joints and cause pain. The best way to care for your joints is to keep them and your muscles, ligaments, and bones strong and healthy.
Natural supplements may help to reduce pain and maintain good joint health.
