You’ll Need Joint Fuel

Shape (Malaysia) - - Get FIt -

Now you know ply­o­met­ric drills done right won’t cause joint pain. But eat­ing your way to stronger knees can’t hurt ei­ther—es­pe­cially if aches are keep­ing you grounded. Ath­letes with ex­er­cise-re­lated joint pain who took 10 grams of col­la­gen hy­drolysate a day re­ported a re­duc­tion in symp­toms over the course of a 24-week Penn State Univer­sity study. You can get the col­la­gen—which builds up car­ti­lage tis­sue in the joints—from fish, egg whites, bone broth, gelatin, or a col­la­gen pow­der, says Dr. Su­san Blum, the founder of the Blum Cen­ter for Health in Rye Brook, New York. Also get an­tiox­i­dants from brightly coloured fruits and veg­gies to pro­tect joints from any ox­ida­tive dam­age that they might in­cur, she says.
