If you live an active life, it's best to start focusing on your joint health sooner than later. As a former collegiate athlete, my joints have taken their fair share of abuse, and to be honest I wish I would have started taking a joint support supplement much, much sooner.
Even if your joint pain only occurs after a strenuous workout, do not ignore that pain. Typically you may feel some inflammation in your joints after putting them through the stress of a workout. This inflammation may be caused by the cartilage in your joints actually breaking down, and prolonged inflammation will only accelerate the deterioration of you body's natural shock absorbers.
An easy way to combat your inflammation issue, as well ease some pain, is to ice your inflamed joints after every workout. Make sure to ice for a minimum of 20 minutes. Ice isn't going to alleviate all your pain, especially if much of your cartilage has already deteriorated. Prolonged inflammation will accelerate the deterioration of cartilage in joints.
If the cartilage deteriorates, that means your bones will have no cushion, and they will scrape against each other while they move. This is what leads to major joint pain.
When choosing a joint support supplement, one ingredient you really want to look for is Hyaluronic Acid. This ingredient acts as a natural lubricant and shock absorber in your joints, helping to alleviate pain associated with cartilage loss. RevLabs makes a joint support supplement that gives you 30mg of Hyaluronic Acid per serving.
In addition to the Hyaluronic Acid, RevLabs also wants to help alleviate inflammation in the joints. This is why they added an all natural anti-inflammatory (Andrographis Paniculata extract) in RevFlex's formula.
Start supporting your joints today and your body with thank you when you're older.
