Is joint pain and stiffness holding you back from doing the things you love? Daily wear and tear can cause the breakdown of cartilage between the joints reducing the natural cushioning that occurs there. This can happen from natural ageing, being active like walking, running, or cycling. Sometimes doing the same movements too often, even if they seem innocuous like gardening, house work or spending a lot of time in front of a computer, can result in soreness and tenderness. While this discomfort can mainly be concentrated in the neck and shoulders, forearms and elbows, the wrists and hands, other parts of the body can be affected too.
If you feel stiff and sore then Solgar 7 is a joint care supplement you could try. It’s described as the next generation after glucosamine. Glucosamine is one of our most popular supplements for joint care, many customers find it brilliant and use nothing else. However, glucosamine may take up to three months to work which is not ideal if you are in pain and need relief now. This is why Solgar wanted to come up with a formula that would be faster acting. In studies Solgar 7 has been shown to improve mobility, stiffness, and to reduce discomfort, in as little as seven days.
It is one of the more expensive supplements that we stock but in saying that the people who try it find it good. One person I know could hardly get out of their car they had so much discomfort. A short time after taking it they couldn’t believe how fit they felt.
Solgar 7 is a unique formula which brings together 7 bio-active ingredients in one small, easy-to-swallow capsule. It contains clinically studied, patented ingredients UC-II® Collagen and 5-Loxin Advanced™ (Boswellia extract), scientifically proven to provide fast acting support for joint discomfort. It also contains Ester-C, a highly absorbable Vitamin C, to support collagen formation, turmeric root, white willow bark, ginger root and a pepper spice complex with Bioperine.® Bioperine® is believed to improve the uptake of both turmeric and the absorption of vitamin C. The combination helps reduce inflammation, improve flexibility, and reduces discomfort and pain.
I would combine this or any joint supplement with some Omega 3 fish oils as they are important to maintain flexibility. You can choose a high-quality supplement or increase the quantity of oily fish that you consume. For more severe cases you can add in extra natural ant inflammatory Turmeric or Curcumin extract.
No need to feel stiff anymore.
