Dr. Oz's 3 Step Plan for Joint Health

STEP 1 — Reverse Inflammation by including Omega-3’s in every meal. 

Omega-3’s douse the fire so-to-speak. They lubricate the joints and other parts of your body. 

Dr. Oz's Dietary Do’s:

Add chia seeds to your morning shake, greek yogurt or salad. You can also make a delicious healthy jam using fruit, honey and chia seeds to spend on whole grain toast! Other excellent sources of Omega-3’s are walnuts and salmon.

Dr. Oz's Dietary Don’t:

Avoid Added Sugar — Sugar trigger the release of inflammatory chemicals that cause pain in your joints

STEP 2 — Restore Function of the Joints with Exercise. 

Dr. Oz says to do this for 2 reasons: Exercise drives more blood to the joints cause they are being moved around plus it strengthens the muscles which pulls the joints apart and prevents the bones from rubbing against each other.

STEP 3 — Repair the Cartilage with a Joint Health Supplement such as USANA Procosa

Curcumin has a very potent anti-inflammatory properties. It’s what give Tumeric it's yellow colour and is found in many East Indian foods.

A recent study took 2 grams of curcumin and gave it to people experiencing joint pain. They found that it had the equivalent effect of Ibprophen, in reducing osteo-arthritus joint pain. 

“When we have natural ingredients I like to take advantage of them,” said Dr. Oz, when speaking about the Glucosamine and Curcumin found USANA’s Joint Health Supplement--Procosa. 

"Usana makes a product called Procosa which has proprietary blend of Vegetarian Glucosamine & a highly absorbable form of curcumin. It’s used by over 700 Olympic & professional athletes form all around the world and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me” says Dr. Oz
