Joint pain is a real burden and can ruin your day. Chronic joint pain is often attributed to aging, and this can be a factor. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be treated. Ignored joint pain puts an incredible amount of stress on the body and causes unnecessary degeneration of the joint tissue.
Joint pain can be caused by overuse, arthritis, loss of bone density, and injury, but it can also indicate a lack of nutrients. If you’re in pain every day and can’t pinpoint the cause, this is a good place to start. We have a smoothie recipe that not only relieves joint irritation but also makes you happy because it tastes so good.
We’ll look at the individual ingredients of this super-art relief blend and then share the recipe. Once you know how each component helps, you can play around with the recipe, add and subtract to get the best balance for you.
Let’s first take a closer look at the mechanism of joint pain: inflammation
Inflammation is actually a body defense mechanism that is designed to seal an affected part of the body so that the problem does not spread. However, chronic inflammation causes more problems than it solves. Inflammation that does not go away is usually referred to as an autoimmune disease. If there is no infection to fight but the inflammation persists, pain, stiffness and possible loss of function of the affected joints result.
Chronic inflammation can also get your joints out of position and cause muscle tension. The muscles eventually build up around the misplaced joint to stabilize it, and none of it is comfortable. At this point, pain in other parts of the body is likely to occur due to the misaligned joint.
Vitamin deficiency is a common cause of inflammation, especially if your body lacks calcium, bromelain, magnesium, and iron. Our smoothie recipe aims to provide adequate nutrition to reduce chronic inflammation and facilitate the healing of the original ailment.
The pineapple star for joint problems is bromelain. This anti-inflammatory compound is often recommended for people with arthritis because it reduces swelling in soft tissue injuries. Other excellent properties of pineapple are vitamin C, star, as well as manganese, copper, fiber and B vitamins.
Speaking of vitamin C: Orange juice helps to keep ligaments and tendons strong, which is ideal for supporting the joints. Its antioxidant properties reduce oxidative stress due to free radical damage. Flavonoids and carotenoids support the blood vessel cells and inhibit the inflammatory response, which leads to less pain. OJ also has magnesium and calcium to support joint health, which just makes it amazing.
Cinnamon is a tasty spice that improves blood circulation and can be prevented by inflammation. It has also been used extensively to treat joint disorders. In some cases, problems with the articular bones lead to inflammation and chronic pain. A 2008 study of rheumatoid arthritis and bone damage found that the disease increased the activity of osteoclast cells that break down bones for reabsorption. In the study, cinnamon was able to reduce osteoclast activity and reduce bone damage.
Whole grain products like oatmeal keep inflammation at bay as they are resistant starches. This is a type of carbohydrate that gets through your system undigested and feeds healthy gut bacteria instead of your entire body. Healthy bacteria produce a fatty acid that causes more efficient fat oxidation and less inflammation. You also get a little iron per serving, which causes another common deficiency related to joint pain.
Honey is a delicate, sweet taste that has a real antioxidant effect. It has also been used as a medicine against diseases as diverse as cough and skin infections for thousands of years. Mixed with apple cider vinegar, honey is a common natural pain reliever for joint pain. However, we believe that our smoothie tastes better. You still get all the nutritional benefits of the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals of honey, as well as a pleasant sweetness and smooth texture.

If you don’t feel relief within 5 days, the problem may be related to something more serious than inflammation caused by vitamin deficiency or overuse. This smoothie is an overall healthy drink that contains several ingredients that are known to relieve inflammation and pain, but cannot cure all possible underlying conditions. At this point, it is important to consult your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment plan.
