Protect Your Joints & Heart At The Same Time

Arthritis damage isn’t limited to your joints. The same inflammation that leads to pain in your knees can cause damage throughout your body, which is why any plan to beat arthritis has to go beyond fighting pain.

It has to fight inflammation, too, and new research finds a natural remedy that can help protect your joints, ease pain, limit arthritis damage and fight the inflammation that causes chronic disease, all at the same time.

Just 1,500 mg a day of glucosamine  and 1,200 mg of chondroitin – doses many people already take for osteoarthritis relief – can slash levels of the inflammation marker C-reactive protein by 23 percent, according to the study in PLoS One.

CRP, as it’s known, can increase the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and dementia, so a little glucosamine and chondroitin might do more than save your knees.
