Joints exist where two bones meet and to create a smooth frictionless movement tough slippery tissue called cartilage acts as a cushion between the bone ends. The joints allow the freedom of movement to enable us to walk, bend, lift and jump and while we are young joints move smoothly without any difficulty, pain or stiffness.
However, joints have to take a lifetime of wear and tear, flexing and moving thousands of times a day and in addition to this, hip and knee joints have to carry our whole weight as well. This creates incredible wearing forces and it is only the fact that cartilage is constantly being maintained and renewed, that prevents bone meeting bone and for painful wearing to begin.
As we age our ability to regenerate declines, which can lead to creaky joints and more serious problems. Likewise we may have an increased need to maintain healthy joints following high impact sports activities. Whatever, the reason, Natures Best has produced a comprehensive range of supplements for maintaining healthy joints.
