Help for Tired Muscles, Achy Joints

Fitness can really punish your body, especially your knees and other joints.

This can be difficult to deal with, not only for athletes at the top of their game, but also for active seniors who enjoy such sports as golf or tennis.

Rather than sitting on the sidelines or relying on medication to mask the pain, research shows that tissue degradation and discomfort can be assuaged with supplements containing minerals that can assist in the long-term regeneration of tissues.

Designed to help maintain healthy muscles and joints, XMotion from Xyience is a formula that may ease the discomfort of arthritis pain in athletes, the elderly and just about anyone suffering from tissue, bone or tendon stress.

XMotion is a dietary supplement that aids the body's own ability to synthesize joint tissues.

Hyaluronic acid, for example, is a natural protein that is an ingredient in cartilage and lubricates joints, protecting them from inflammation and healing damaged tissue. XMotion contains micronutrients such as magnesium, calcium, zinc and vitamin C, all of which are essential in the development of collagen, which is a main component in the restoration of cartilage, tendons and ligaments.

Because damaged joints take a long time to heal, chicken sternal cartilage, which closely mimics human cartilage, may be beneficial as well. It has been shown to alleviate joint tissue discomfort when integrated into the diet.

Another key ingredient is bromelain.

Found in the fruit, stems and leaves of the pineapple plant, bromelain is thought to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

Preliminary research shows that bromelain may help to reduce symptoms of arthritis. A study conducted at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom investigated the effects of bromelain on mild acute knee pain in otherwise healthy adults.

Results confirmed that bromelain eased physical symptoms and improved general well-being.
