Drink this smoothie once a day, whenever you like, over the course of 5 days. You should be virtually free of joint pain by the fifth day. If the pain is not the result of occasional overuse, but rather associated with aging, arthritis, or repetitive motion you can’t avoid, you may want to make this delicious smoothie a life-long habit.
If you do not experience relief within 5 days, the problem could be related to something more serious than inflammation caused by vitamin deficiency or overuse. This smoothie is an overall healthy drink that includes several ingredients known to decrease inflammation and pain, but it can’t heal all possible underlying conditions. It is important at this point to see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment plan.
This smoothie is one smart habit it should be easy to maintain. The healthy fruits, grains, and seasonings make it good for you on so many levels, not just joint support. Now, relief from the burning, achy pain of swollen joints is the main objective here. The increased vigor and wellness you may experience is just the icing on the cake. But it means you can really take advantage of pain free and flexible joints! We hope that getting back to the physical activities you enjoy will bring as much happiness as it does health.
