How to Boost Joint Health after 50?
Creaking bones and hurting knee joints are the most apparent signs of aging. Once you hit 50, ailments will settle deep in your bones, and you'll struggle to do chores that you could do easily earlier. Things as simple as climbing stairs, walking your dog, or bending over to pick something will become excruciatingly painful.
Even though face lines and creases may steal most of your attention, your bone health deserves equal care, if not more. Your bone structure carries the weight of your organs and endures physical strains during mobility.
A healthy bone structure can withstand the stress that age inflicts on the bones. If you want to remain fit and self-sufficient in your 50s and beyond, you need to a) understand your body first, and b) adopt lifestyle changes (including natural joint supplements) geared toward better joint health.
What Are Bones Made Of?
The model skeletons in science labs or dental clinics are not a realistic depiction of bone matter. Contrary to popular belief, bones are not entirely rigid. The solid part is only the outer structure that’s made of cortical bone. The insides of your bone structure are made of trabecular bone, which is designed like a honey-comb. The cavities are filled with bone marrow cells that create blood and fat cells.
