Let's face it, most of us lead sedentary lives. We sit during our commutes and are seated while working throughout the day. While we can alleviate the bad effects of this lifestyle by walking every 30 minutes and taking the stairs instead of the elevator, when it comes to work pressure, most of us would prefer to remain seated and meet the deadline instead of taking a walk. All this coupled with poor posture and bad roads result in the most common ailment for all - back pain. Lack of exercise further aggravates the issue, creating a truly vicious cycle. Popping pills is also not the solution as most non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs come with a host of side-effects that crop up with continuous usage. So what is the solution? Well, the long-term solution is better posture, exercise and a more active lifestyle, while for the short-term the best solution apart from NSAIDs is a bromelain supplement like Bromelain Plus from Pure Nutrition.
From osteoarthritis to rheumatoid, arthritis can come in more than a hundred different types. The former is the most common and is a degenerative disease that affects joints and reduces mobility. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that protects the joints wears away and gets inflamed, mostly due to age. The fact that our body is less able to suppress inflammatory responses as age progresses also means that the inflammation has more chances of becoming chronic and painful. Osteoarthritis sufferers often find their joints swollen and mobility significantly reduced due to pain. As a result, their quality of life reduces which is not a good sign in the elderly.
