Apart from ageing, many modern lifestyle choices can lead to a condition called osteoarthritis (OA). A love for food may lead to obesity, which causes stress on the joints. Conversely, sporting activities such as marathons, tennis, badminton and others may amplify the risk of joint-related injury or strain. Even at the workplace, workers in the service industry who spend long hours on their feet are at risk of succumbing to OA. The constant pain and stiffness inflicted by OA can deprive sufferers of the chance to enjoy the things they love, be it playing with their grandchildren to participating in their favourite sports.
Furthermore, OA could force people to lead sedentary lives or even become homebound, afflicting not only the sufferer financially and emotionally, but also indirectly impacting their families and co-workers. To minimise or prevent, consider Osteo Bi-Flex by Rexall Sundown. It contains the specially formulated 5-LOXIN, which is a proprietary extract of the Boswellia serrata plant enriched with 30 percent AKBA (3-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid). 5-LOXIN as been shown to relieve joint discomfort within seven days based on clinical studies, according to the company, and it helps protect against the breakdown of cartilage and joint fluid. It also contains glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, vitamin C, boron, manganese and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane).
