Joints are the parts of the body where the bones meet. They allow the bones of the skeleton to move. Joint pain affects many people worldwide. It’s characterized by soreness, aches, and discomfort in any of the body’s joints.
3 Major Causes of Joint Pain:
One of the major causes of joint pain is arthritis. The 2 main types of arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It is the “wear and tear” that occurs when the joints are overused. It often happens with age, but it can also be triggered by obesity or joint injuries. It often affects the spine, hips, knees, feet, and hands. In most cases, it comes on gradually over months or even years.
Rheumatoid arthritis causes fluid buildup, inflammation and pain in the joints because the body’s immune system attacks the membrane that lines the joints. It may debilitate and deform the joints over time.
– Joint injury
Joint injury can weaken or compromise the structural components of the affected joint. It is characterized by bone remodeling, bone bruising, cartilage damage, or damage to surrounding structures such as ligaments.
– Vitamin D Deficiency
The body makes vitamin D when the skin is exposed to the sun. This vitamin may help ward off a variety of health problems. It’s a naturally occurring compound that helps regulate the body’s use of phosphorus and calcium. It plays an important role in the formation of teeth and bone. So, vitamin D deficiency may lead to weak muscles and brittle bones.
Gelatin May Help Relieve Joint Pain and Strengthen the Connective Tissue around Your Joints
If you often experience limited range of motion or joint stiffness, inflammation and pain, you should use gelatin to relieve joint pain and strengthen the connective tissue around your joints.
Gelatin comes from pork, chicken, beef, and occasionally fish, and is primarily made up of collagenous connective tissues, tendons, and joints that are dried and ground into a powder.
Collagen is an essential amino acid for your whole body, from joints to skin. It helps protect your organs, hold together your muscles and bones, provide structure to your tendons and joints, and promote skin elasticity. Gelatin is actually the cooked form of collagen.
Gelatin is available in many different forms, from powder to supplement. Here’re 3 types of powdered collagen and gelatin:
– Marine Collagen: It’s made from the skin, cartilage and bones of marine animals. It’s a great option for you if you want to avoid pork or beef.
– Collagen Powder: It can be added to baked goods, hot beverages, or smoothies.
– Gelatin Powder: It can be added to any liquid, like broths, stews, and soups.
Just make sure you choose a high-quality gelatin brand, as there’re so many brands of gelatin out there.
