Having healthy joints is vitally important to maintain a quality of life.
Joint health can become a concern for many individuals as they age as it is more common among the aging population.
Chronic joint pain can develop into the condition also known as arthritis, which can reduce flexibility and range of motion.
The good news is, there are many preventative measures that you can take to reduce the likelihood of developing joint issues as well as its symptoms.
Keeping your joints healthy will help you to stay active and do the things that you love to do while you age.
Of course this involves a combination of a healthy lifestyle, movement, nutrition, and supplements where applicable, the latter which we will be exploring today!
How SierraSil can keep your joints healthy
The term “Arthritis” is defined as inflammation and stiffness of the joints.
Chronic inflammation is a common cause to joint issues and can cause pain, redness, heat, tenderness, discomfort, stiffness, and swelling.
When inflammation persists continually, it can damage the body, including the joints which can result in symptoms such as those mentioned previously.
This is why adopting an anti-inflammatory approach to your diet is imperative in order to calm inflammation, and there are supplements you can take to further support this process as well.
The mineral based joint support formula, SierraSil, has been clinically proven to support a healthy inflammatory response and effectively support joint health by reducing the breakdown of cartilage (2).
Cartilage degradation is characteristic of both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, contributing to the dysmobility, pain and compromised quality of life associated with these conditions (3).
This clay mineral complex is sourced from the Sierra Mountains in the United States.
In addition to its anti-inflammatory effects, SierraSil is also promoted for its detoxifying properties.
The mineral composition found in SierraSil includes calcium, potassium, sodium, aluminum, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, silicon, manganese, barium, copper, cobalt, zinc and other natural co-occurring trace elements.
Clinical research backs up the efficacy of SierraSil. A study that observed the effects of SierraSil and cat’s claw extract on joint health, found that the mineral complex by itself but also in combination with the herbal extract limited cartilage breakdown and symptoms associated with osteoarthritis (4).
SierraSil alone and in combination with cat’s claw improved joint health and function within 2 weeks of treatment. The results of this study suggest that SierraSil may represent an alternative natural treatment option for those suffering with joint pain and dysmobility (5).
It is recommended to take SierraSil away from other medications and supplements to avoid any potential interactions and to improve efficacy.
