Healthy bones & joints
Natural solutions to get you back on your feet
Do you have problems with fragile bones? Do your joints often hurt? Does it take you some time to shake off the rust each morning? Don’t worry – we’ve got natural solutions that will help you get back on your feet!
For active people and athletes who need to avoid injury, healthy bones and joints are just as important as healthy muscles. In fact, our skeletons and joints are subjected to stress even when we are simply walking. Strong bones require the consumption of calcium, as well as exposure to sunlight – UV rays transform provitamin D (a cholesterol precursor) into vitamin D, which is essential for healthy bones.
The impacts endured by athletes’ joints can also cause these joints to age prematurely. This can lead to sprains, torn cartilage, or even arthritis – even in young people. Also contributing to these problemsis oxidation, which causes many aging-related issues – but which can also be prevented by consuming microalgae and their derivatives.
Algae – a natural, effective solution for taking good care of your bones
Astaxanthin, a pigment derived from Haematococcus pluvialis algae, is known as a powerful antioxidant. Studies have shown that it can improve muscle and joint pain in proportion to the amount of exercise performed.
Phycocyanin, the blue pigment in spirulina, also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects – perfect for achy joints. It is particularly effective when taken in liquid form.
Calcium supplementation can have a positive effect on our bone health as well – Lithothamnium calcareum algae, an excellent source of calcium, can be particularly useful in treating bone problems such as osteoporosis and in preventing or treating bone fractures.
