Everything you do, from tying your shoes to playing with your kids, is dependent on your joints. That’s why it’s so important to take care of them. Here are some tips for supporting your joint health!
Maintain a healthy weight.
There are a lot of benefits of maintaining a healthy weight, and taking care of your joint health is one of them. Carrying extra weight causes more strain on your joints, especially your knees. If you need to lose some weight, the Transformation Kit is a great place to start. It uses Alkalete, YES, Passion or Thermo Burn, Resolve, Pure, and a meal plan you can customize based on your personal health goals to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight for your body.

Regular exercise can be great for your joint health, especially because strengthening your muscles helps them better support your joints. At Yoli, we recommend working out 30-45 minutes three to five times each week. If you experience joint pain, make sure you choose exercises that are low-impact, such as cycling or swimming.
Stretching keeps your muscles strong and flexible, which can help prevent joint injury, so it’s a great addition to your day. Just keep in mind that it’s much better to stretch when your muscles are warm, not when they’re cold. Before you work out, do a few dynamic warm-ups that correspond with the muscles you’ll use while exercising, such as a quick jog, a few lunges, or some arm circles, and save the static stretches for after your workout!
Giving your body essential nutrients for joint health can make a big difference in your overall wellbeing. That’s why we developed our joint health supplement, Flex! Flex uses proprietary blends of Limber-C and Mobiliflex to promote healthy cartilage and reduce the effects of everyday wear and tear on your joints. These blends work together to help you support your joint health and keep you feeling great!*
