Today, we’ll be shedding some light on the most common injuries affecting the most mobile joint in the human body: the shoulder.
If you’re a regular runner, injury can, unfortunately, come with the territory. While running gives you so many health benefits — like keeping your cardiovascular health and body in shape — the impact of the activity can take a toll on your muscles, bones, and joints.
There are tons and tons of abbreviations and acronyms within the realm of health and nutrition. If you experience pain in your joints and increased stiffness in muscles, you may have stumbled across these nutrients in your research for ways to reduce inflammation.

It can get a little confusing and time-consuming to learn and remember even a fraction of them, but EPA and DHA are two that you’ll want to know for sure!
Whether you already have weak bones or are trying to prevent them from nearing that state, focusing on your diet is a great way of supporting the health and strength of your skeletal system.
We have already discussed one essential mineral that helps in the growth and maintenance of bone and joints (that is, zinc), and today we’ll be exploring the relationship between Vitamin D and bone health.

The good news is, studies are demonstrating that certain minerals help to alleviate joint discomfort and slow (or even prevent) the progression of severe bone and joint conditions as we age!
There are a lot of tasks and responsibilities on your plate.
Your boss is demanding your project to be completed by the end of the month. Your kids have soccer practice, piano lessons, and play dates that you need to make sure they get on time. The weekly game night with friends is starting to turn into the monthly game night (if that). You’re having trouble sleeping at night, and you have this nagging feeling you’re going to forget to do something that just won’t go away no matter how many reminders you set or lists you make.
