As we age, many of us experience occasional joint pain, stiffness and inflammation throughout our bodies. Chinese herbalists often associate these joint problems with blocked channels, poor circulation and/or "dampness" within the joints. What causes joint discomfort and how can Chinese herbal supplements help? Aging and age-related issues can contribute to occasional joint pain, stiffness and inflammation throughout your bodies. When joints are restricted from movement for longer periods, they may become stiff and cause pain. At times, certain injuries can cause joints to become weak. If you are overweight, the additional weight on joints can also be a detrimental factor. Weak joints lead to pain and the degradation of bones.
Traditional Chinese supplements are designed to maintain the overall health of bones, limbs and joints. The use of Chinese herbal products to manage joint pain is an easy decision. Common formulas contain Chinese herbs like corydalis, eucommia and yucca which have been used for thousands of years to address joint health. Several formulas also contain traditional western herbs such as magnesium and silica which may be effective at reducing cramps and supporting bone density by helping support the body's absorption of calcium, a vital part of bone strengthening.
