For many people, the fall season brings excitement for cooler weather and pumpkin spice lattes. For others, the weather change is dreadful and stifling for joint pain. So here are a few products that may help relieve sore joints:
- 18 Paths Herbal Relief Rub ($26.99): Based on the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine, this unique gel is non-oily and easy to use. Containing anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, 18 Paths is known to help increase blood flow to sore areas of the body, promote healing, and work quickly on calming sore joints. Tip: try having a hot bath prior to rubbing on the gel for soothing results!
- Swiss Natural Magnesium Oxide 420mg ($14.99): According to a study published in the journal Osteoarthritis Cartilage, “Lower magnesium intake was associated with worse pain and function [in knee osteoarthritis].” That being said, consider upping your magnesium intake if you’re suffering from joint pain. Take one Swiss Natural magnesium supplement (420mg) daily to help maintain bones and promote muscle function.
- Manitoba Harvest Hemp Seed Oil capsules ($12.99): Manitoba Harvest’s hemp seed oil capsules contain gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which, according to Very Well Health, “…is converted by the body into substances that fight inflammation and cell damage.” In fact, “It is believed that, by tempering the underlying autoimmune inflammation, GLA may reduce the progression or severity of [rheumatoid arthritis],” explains Very Well Health. To increase GLA in your diet, take one Manitoba Harvest capsule twice a day.
Of course, a healthy lifestyle also contributes to alleviating joint pain. Stress can contribute to inflammation and pain, so pencil in “you” time, such as meditation, exercise, or any other hobbies to keep you relaxed. Also, try adding CBD (cannabidiol) to your health regime, which is naturally anti-inflammatory with calming properties.
