Diet and lifestyle changes for muscle and joint pain

So, what can you do to help yourself? Here are a number of changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle to help keep your muscles and joints moving:

Eat more:

Oily fish such as herring, mackerel, salmon, tuna, or use fish oil supplements.

Why? These contain oils which have a positive effect on inflammation.

Eat more:

Sardines, green leafy vegetables, oats, kidney beans and dried fruit such as figs, pumpkin, sunflower seeds.

Why? Foods rich in magnesium help ensure better calcium absorption. Green leafy vegetables also contain potassium, which reduces acidity in the body.

Eat more:

Pineapple, papaya, mango, guava.

Why? Contain digestive enzymes which help reduce acidity in the body.


Molkosan® Vitality.

Why? Prebiotics encourage a healthy digestive tract, supporting good bacteria in the gut. When these bacteria flourish your digestive system works better.

Have more:

Physical exercise and relaxation time.

Why? A regular (even gentle) exercise routine such as swimming, stretching, tai-chi, yoga or walking can reduce stress and help you relax. This helps keep your joints moving better.
