Coping with Winter Joint Aches & Pains

Yes, it’s that time of year… winter is here. Instead of shorts and t-shirts, the proper attire consists of pants, long-sleeve shirts, sweatshirts and coats. The cold wind bites at your heels, and worse, the cold also aggravates our bones and joints. During winter, you can experience more stiffness and discomfort from your knees and back among other things, but you don’t have to accept the pain.

After spending all day at work and performing your daily responsibilities, you may not feel like working out, but even 30 minutes of exercise per day can make a huge impact. If you can find time to work out, you could boost your mood, along with your creative and critical thinking capacity. In addition, working out can help your joints and muscles feel less stiff if they are accustomed to being used. The long periods pf standing or sitting at work can cause your body to tense up, so walking or jogging can loosen them up, and in turn, you feel better.

Of course, joint, bone, and muscle discomfort is still possible, but you can fight back by adding daily supplements and vitamins to your diet. Joint Decision is a dietary supplement specifically designed to help you and your joint pain. Joint Decision helps to supply the body with glucosamine, which is necessary for our bodies to function with little or no discomfort.

Glucosamine is naturally manufactured within our bodies and can be consumed in our diet, but it’s difficult to get the proper amount through diet alone. If you have the incorrect amount of glucosamine necessary in your body, then your joints and bones can feel achy and painful.

Our cartilage needs glucosamine to function properly. Cartilage is what helps cushion our joints when we move and helps prevent them from feeling stiff after resting in the same position for long amounts of time. Joint Decision can help supply the body with the right amount of glucosamine so the cartilage can effectively cushion our joints and allow you to feel better when performing your daily tasks.

So don’t let the bitter cold of winter and its effect on your joints keep you from doing the things you love, like cooking succulent meals for the holidays, spending time with the rambunctious kids in your family, taking your favorite canine for a brisk winter walk, or even just going about your daily life.

Researching the Benefits of Vitamin D for our Bodies

vitamin-d-research-sunlightDo you often think to yourself, “Did I get enough Vitamin D today?” Chances are, no,
you don’t think this. Vitamin D often gets overlooked in our dietary lives. A lot of the time
we are focusing on what will help us lose weight, or what will help us reduce symptoms
of some certain ailment we are facing, but what we don’t know is that research has
shown that Vitamin D can aid in these and much more. Vitamin D can be considered a
multi-tasker with a plethora of benefits for our bodies.

Observational studies have found a link between Vitamin D and mood levels in older
adults. In these studies, it was found that Vitamin D deficiency could be a risk-factor for
depression brought on later in life. Participants who took Vitamin D supplementation
were found to have an increase in their mood levels.

Research has shown that Vitamin D benefits the body’s musculoskeletal functions.
Again, with our Vitamin D deficient lifestyles, people can be more prone to fractures and
muscle weakness. A study found that daily Vitamin D supplementation reduced hip and
non-spinal fractures by 20%. Sufficient Vitamin D levels help with bone mineralization
and keeps them from softening as we get older.

Another study sought out to find an association between Vitamin D and general
mortality. In the study, populations had their Vitamin D levels checked and were
separated based on their Vitamin D statuses. The population with the higher status
results had lower mortality rates than the population that was considered Vitamin D
deficient. This study’s purpose was to generally associate Vitamin D status levels with
risk factors related to mortality.

Heart Health
The heart “flexes” its muscle with the help of Vitamin D. Over time, like other muscles,
the heart can become weaker and even damaged. That, compounded with a Vitamin D
deficiency can cause problems in the long run. Studies found that men who were
Vitamin D deficient were twice as likely to suffer a heart attack. It’s no surprise here that
Vitamin D deficiency is linked to heart issues.

The list can go on and on about what research says about Vitamin D and its
preventative properties, but the benefits outlined are reason enough for you to make
sure that your Vitamin D levels are up to par. In this day and age and with the modern
lifestyles we live, it’s not hard for us to become deficient. Speak to your doctor about
testing and how you can combat Vitamin D deficiency. They may even recommend
changes in diet or Vitamin D supplementation.
