I’m relatively young still, not even in my mid-thirties yet and I exercise regularly. I’d like to think of myself as being healthy, but one thing that concerns me is my creaky knees. Whenever I bend down when I’m exercising or simply to pick something up off the ground, my noisy knees sound like they’re grinding. What does that mean, and should I be worried?
It seems that creaky joints are fairly common and don’t necessarily mean that you could be developing arthritis. The point at which you should become concerned is if your joints are they’re swollen, sore, stiff, or if they buckle without warning. Fortunately, my creaky knees (and sometimes my hips) are just noisy and don’t bring me any discomfort.
As I mentioned, when you feel pain is when you should see the doctor. Knee pain can mean a number of things, such as joint inflammation and knee effusions, the latter of which is when your knee is producing more fluid to increase lubrication and cushioning. If you find your knee gives out without warning, that could mean that your cartilage or your knee joint is damaged.
But if you don’t have any of the above symptoms, what can you do to silence creaky knees? Research using guinea pigs found that omega-3 oil helped to loosen joints and helped to prevent osteoarthritis in the guinea pigs. Many people also find that their creaky joints feel better and become quieter when using a fish oil supplement rich in omega-3 oils, such as the Arctic cod live oil available at Onnit. This particular cod liver oil is contains no fish body oil or artificial additives.

Have you ever heard of “strontium” before? I hadn’t either, at least not until I did some in depth research into Onnit’s Stron Bone and Joint supplement. It turns out that strontium isn’t the element they made Wolverine’s bones and claws out of when he was created in a lab. In fact, strontium is a naturally occurring mineral found deep inside our bones.
What Onnit’s Stron Bone and Joint provides you with is increased bone strength and the ability to recover faster than you would if you weren’t taking it at all. Studies have shown that Stron Bone and Joint decreases the risk of fracture by 41% and, when combined with calcium, could increase bone density by 30%. This makes it an ideal supplement for athletes, the elderly, the accident prone, and those with physically demanding jobs.
Stron Bone and Joint doesn’t focus solely on the bones, but also the connective tissue between the bones as well. Three ingredients specifically work towards promoting joint health: N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, methysulfonlymenthane, and hyaluronic acid. These three ingredients prevent degradation of tissue between bones, help to regenerate tissue, and work as an anti-inflammatory.
It’s all very complicated and I’ve done my best to explain it in layman’s terms, but to be honest I don’t quite understand how exactly it works, I just know that it works. My bones simply feel stronger and more dense. I’m not sore in my legs and ankles after running when in the past I would be in a great deal of pain. If you struggle with any bone or joint related issues, I encourage you to give Onnit’s Stron Bone and Joint a try. With its 30 day money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose except aches and pains.
