As you get older, cartilage starts to deteriorate from normal wear and tear. The body’s natural shock absorbers are wearing out, which means you begin feeling more of the physical toll your body is experiencing. You may even notice that some joints have changed shape—especially in your fingers or toes. You may feel stiff in the morning, or have aches and pains in some joints that never bothered you before. The joint may even become sensitive to the touch. Usually, they are minor annoyances, but sometimes joint discomfort can make it very hard to function..
How many of you have, or know someone that has experienced sore, achy joints? Have you found that getting out of bed is not as easy as it was years ago? Joint pain and swelling can affect any joint in the body, and is often accompanied by stiffness, aches and a feeling of heat or warmth.
At times we think this is no big deal, right? Wrong.
All too often, we assume joint pain is a normal part of aging and we just have to learn to live with it. But nothing could be further from the truth.
These are the 10 signs that you need to look after your joints;

- Your joints click, crack or grate when you move them
- Your joints aren’t very flexible

One option is to take a joint supplement to help promote overall bone and joint health. When looking at a joint supplement, there is one main non-controversial ingredient found in most products on the market, glucosamine. The research behind glucosamine is consistent and its benefits effective. Isotonix Prime Joint contains glucosamine, naturally produced by the body and a key component of cartilage. An aminomonosaccharide (a combination of the amino acid — glutamine and a sugar — glucose), glucosamine is concentrated in joint cartilage and has been scientifically proven to support healthy joint function and promote the normal production of synovial fluid, which lubricates your joints and regenerates cartilage.
Isotonix Prime Joint also contains the powerful antioxidant Pycnogenol, which science has shown to inhibit the body’s overactive inflammatory processes associated with the normal aging process. The body’s inflammatory response is a natural process. It is an essential component of the body’s defense system and can be triggered from numerous internal and external factors. Pycnogenol has been shown to help support the body’s defense system by inhibiting overactive inflammatory responses associated with the normal aging process. This great tasting, easy-to-take isotonic formula is ideal for men and women with an active lifestyle or aging and also for anyone who has difficulty swallowing tablets. Furthermore, Isotonix Prime Joint is the only product on the market delivering glucosamine and Pycnogenol in isotonic form.
