Herbs for Joint Health and Muscles
We may not stop to fully appreciate our bones, joints, ligaments, and the freedom of movement they allow us—until they begin to complain. As children we start out with flexible joints, cushioned by healthy cartilage and ample synovial fluid, and supple muscles and connective tissue. As we age, many of us stop moving the way we moved as children. We stop daily physical activity like running, skipping, and playing tag. We stop jumping rope, climbing trees, and hula hooping. All these things we did so effortlessly as children supported a healthy growing musculoskeletal system and circulatory system, and we didn’t even know it.
One thing is certain—our bodies were made to move. And our bodies were made to move not only when we are young, but throughout a lifetime. The best way to improve bone health is still to exercise. The best relief for stiffness and tight muscles is still to stretch them. And the best way we can support strong joints is by keeping our muscles and bones healthy. We can further support tone and strength with a wholesome diet, natural herbs, and herbal supplements for joint health.
How to Improve Joint Health
Supporting joint health goes beyond the joint alone; their function is dependent on the surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments which permit their movement. The stronger the muscles, the stronger the joint. Weak muscles can lead to more stress on the joint, allowing the possibility for further pain or damage.
Conversely, we can put healthy stress on our bones in the form of exercise, via muscle factors, which sends a signal to the osteocytes (the cells responsible for new bone tissue) to form stronger bones. Thus, the importance of exercise cannot be overstated—not only for healthy weight management, but for a lifetime of strong and stable joints.
To support a healthy and balanced exercise routine, you just may want some sore muscle relief. Our Muscle Balm stands out amongst our collection of Ayurvedic Balms for its ability to promote circulation and healthy movement of lymph. Joint Balm is also an essential ally for joint rejuvenation, featuring warming and soothing herbs for bone health. Used with our Mahanarayan Oil, or alone, it provides a truly beneficial and nourishing experience.
Joint Supplements—Best Herbs for Bones and Joints
When it comes to circulation supplements and supplements for strong bones and joints, Banyan has many supportive options. Our Joint Support tablets combine herbs for joint lubrication with cleansing herbs like guggulu and amalaki, alongside warming and stimulating circulation herbs like boswellia, turmeric, and ginger. Healthy Bones is also a noteworthy ally, with coral calcium and the synergistic elements of arjuna, ashwagandha, and ginger.
