How do we keep our bones & joints happy?
Feel the benefit in your bones from barleygrass, wheatgrass, maca, hemp, spirulina or chia seeds.
We have over 200 bones in our bodies, connected together by clever joints. They protect our vital organs and keep us mobile and moving. Our bones need movement to stay strong, so daily exercise especially weight bearing, is essential. Stretching exercises like dance and yoga may also keep us from feeling stiff and creaky! Calcium and magnesium are champions for healthy strong bones. Protein is essential for the growth and development of bones in children and adults. We can get these through wholegrains, pulses, beans, and you will find particularly high levels in barleygrass, wheatgrass, chia, maca and spirulina. By giving our joints and bones the right support we can help them to support us! Vitamin D also contributes towards the absorption of calcium into our bodies. We get little from our diets and most comes from sunlight on our skin. Research suggests that half of adults and a quarter of children are vitamin D deficient. Mushroom powders like reishi and chaga are rich in vitamin D, and can help us get what we need.
