Do you have an active lifestyle and want to maintain your bone health? To keep your bones strong and healthy for as long as possible, it is important to take care of your joints. Here are some daily actions that you can take in order to do that.
Start each day by stretching as soon as you get out of bed.
This morning ritual will allow you to awaken your body and your mind.
- Make smooth, flowing movements.
- Turn your wrists and ankles clockwise and repeat the exercise in the opposite direction.
- Then, put your hands on your shoulders, elbows-bent, and make small circles in both directions.
- Finish by making circular rotations with your neck in both directions.
Once you have finished stretching, go into the kitchen to make yourself a smoothie with liquid collagen. Collagen is a protein that is present in all the bodily structures (skin, cartilages, tendons, ligaments and conjunctive tissues) and is responsible for the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of the tissues. It is therefore an important ally in relieving inflammation, reducing pain and decreasing joint stiffness. Furthermore, after the age of 30, the production of collagen diminishes and this can result in joint pain and cartilage deterioration, as well as in the loss of elasticity, mobility and even agility and flexibility. Therefore, by adding 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of Genacol Original Liquid Formula to your morning smoothie, you will help maintain the health of your whole body.
Here are three simple and quick smoothie recipes!
Genacol Original Liquid Formula is a new product that contains only our exclusive AminoLock Collagen as the active ingredient. With a light green-apple flavour, it can either be added to your morning smoothie or juice or, before bedtime, in a glass of water. Since it is liquid, the body quickly absorbs it. It helps repair and regenerate worn out and damaged joint tissue. It also prevents premature joint deterioration and, most importantly, keeps cartilage, ligaments and tendons healthy. This liquid formula will protect you from developing osteoarthritis. According to Statistics Canada, osteoarthritis is a disease that affects more than 10% of Canadians adults. In fact, the risk increases with age but also with overweight and a sedentary lifestyle. Joint trauma is also an aggravating factor.
Release the stress
Studies have shown that chronic stress affects the production of collagen. So, how do you go about reducing stress? Simply by meditating, by practising relaxation techniques or scheduling some time for yourself. No matter what your schedule looks like, try to take time for yourself every day by going for a walk after breakfast or before dinner, watching a movie, reading or meditating. Take some time to relax, make a list of the things you would like to do and do them! With the daily routine … our body and our mind have their daily stress load!
Take some time outside to fill up with”sunshine vitamin” !
You need at least 30 minutes of natural light per day to influence your biological clock and your mood. Exposure to the sun helps reduce melatonin production and accelerate the production of vitamin D, which is essential for your body.
So, take some time for yourself, you deserve it !
