As we get older, our body becomes less resistant to damage and weaker, because of the everyday tear and wear lifestyle. Its functions become a lot slower, and it asks us for more nurturing in order to defend us from health issues and diseases.
Joint and muscle pain are one of the most common issues that come along with aging, but they can happen also because of physical activities, working out and injuries.
Some powerful painkillers soothe the pain permanently, but they are not a long term solution for that issue. With their consumption, and not finding a real cure to the issue, one can experience a series of unpleasant side-effects.
That’s why we propose another, and a lot safer solution which is also natural to relieve from the joint and muscle pain, while at the same time it is improving the conditions of our cartilages, joints and ligaments.
How to make it?
- 8 ounces of water
- 8 ounces of crushed sweet almonds
- 2 cups of diced pineapple
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- 1 teaspoon of organic honey
- 1 cup of natural orange juice
- 1 cup of oatmeal
Put the pot on heat and cook the oatmeal for 10 minutes. Then let it cool down, and add the rest of the ingredients in it. Put the mix in a blender, and blend until the mixture becomes homogeneous.
If you want to reap the maximum benefits from this mixture, we recommend you to consume 2 glasses of it on daily basis. Have one in the morning when you get up, and one in the evening before you go to bed. Do this for 15 days straight.
Joint pain mostly depends on your diet, which means that you must increase the intake of these foods below:
