Joint Function

The essential fatty acids in Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend may help to lubricate the soft tissue around the bones and help to improve joint pain.

There are three key nutritional aspects to assisting with joint health.

1. Anti Inflammatory Omega 3

So much joint pain is down to inflammation within the joints.  Omega 3’s turn into powerful anti-inflammatory compounds called resolvins which help control this inflammation.

2. Adequate amounts of Essential Nutrients

Essential nutrients (those our body needs but cannot make itself) help every cell in the body, including those involved in joint function, to work properly.  Some of those Essential Nutrients specifically help reduce inflammation and we need to ensure we obtain enough of these Essential nutrients including Omega 3.

3. Avoid Toxic molecules

Toxic molecules in our food can cause inflammation.  Such toxic molecules can be caused by modern food processing techniques or may be present in some oils through pollution, particularly in fish oils.  Therefore for optimal joint health:

  • Increase the amounts of Essential Nutrients in your diet, including Omega 3
  • Reduce the amount of toxic molecules in your body. 

You might sweat these toxic molecules out during exercise or detoxing but better to avoid eating them in the first place. Avoid processed foods as parts of modern processing techniques cause damage to oils turning them toxic.  Avoid all processed cooking oils for the same reason and do not heat oils to extreme temperatures during cooking, such as frying.  Rather cook food in water and pour oil onto the food after cooking.   

Athletic recovery

Athletes push their joints hard and are often more prone to joint pain or tenderness than normal. In a study into the  effects of Udo’s Oil on athletes carried out in Denmark, the participants reported a reduction in joint pain and tenderness and though subjective these personal observations further supports the large amount of evidence that Omega 3s help assist in joint pain reduction.
