Arthritis: A family curse & caring for my joints

joint care supplements - arthritis
Our family gene pool has been rather lucky in the grand scheme of things. Thinking about it, our family has breast cancer Alzheimer’s and arthritis hovering about among the ranks. Only having those three medical issues within the DNA of both sides of the family, I’d say we got off pretty lightly.

The one most common medical issues that I’ve seen the majority of my family members suffer with is arthritis. My Mother included. Before her death a few years ago I recall it giving her lots of joint pain. She began to have difficulty gripping certain items properly and the cold air would make her hands stiff and sore. Now that I think about it, other than pain relief I really don’t know if she took any joint pain supplements to help with her arthritis. 

My Dad, however, has been pretty smart about caring for himself. Way more than I have been and even though I do tend to take a leaf out of his book, I still envy his frame of mind. He takes daily supplements i.e vitamins for things such as calcium, cod liver oil, zinc, vitamin D and Seven seas joint care etc. So you see, he’s been smart about this whole ‘getting older’ thing & especially aiming at taking care of his joints. Something I think, now that I’m in my late 30’s {ouch!} looking into supplements for joint health is something that I should really be doing myself.

I have never been any good at taking vitamins if I’m honest. I’ve tried many times in the past and in no time at all I’d start to forget. It would start off as forgetting to take them one day & then that one day would turn into two, and so on. It’s never been a strength of mine. However, I have heard of joint care supplements in liquid form, which sounds like something I could learn to take better than a vitamin capsule.

The particular joint care supplement that I came across was called LQ joint care. When I read that the scientifically formulated supplement enabled cartilage regeneration due to active key ingredients such as Peptan, I was intrigued.

I love the idea of cartilage regeneration, don’t you? The idea that a liquid supplement can internally reconstruct important and vital pieces of your body to help towards the prevention of arthritis is mindblowing.

Do you use any joint supplements? Leave me a comment below.
