Knee Pain Smoothie

Your knees are among the most important joints in your body. They play an integral role in proper posture and all movements of the legs, from walking and running to standing and jumping. However, injury, wounds and aging can cause the ligaments and tendons in the knees to lose their lubrication and flexibility over time.
While this process is natural, it’s important to do what you can to protect your knees from damage so they can stay strong, healthy and flexible. Maintaining strong muscles and a healthy weight are key to healthy joints. Your muscles help support your joints and can lower the risk of wear and tear and help prevent damage and injury. Maintaining a healthy weight is equally important, as extra pounds apply excess weight and stress on your knees when you walk. The knees need to remain strong and flexible so they can support your body and help you maintain your mobility and live a happy and healthy life.
Whether you have bad knees or want to maintain healthy ligaments and tendons, this amazing smoothie recipe can help. Featuring three powerful ingredients of pineapple, cinnamon and oats, this smoothie can help strengthen ligaments and tendons, as well as facilitate the natural lubrication of the knees.
Pineapple contains three powerful vitamins that play an integral role in joint health. Bromelain helps reduce pain and inflammation, while vitamin C helps produce and repair collagen, the protein in connective tissues that keeps the joints strong. Pineapple is also rich in copper, which promotes healthy joints.

Cinnamon and oats are also key ingredients for healthy joints. Cinnamon is prized for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and the avenanthramides in oats help reduce inflammation.
Along with strengthening the knees, this nutrient-packed smoothie can boost your energy and strengthen other parts and systems of the body. The smoothie also contains a variety of other vital nutrients, including magnesium, silicon, potassium and calcium, which have strong anti-inflammatory properties, alleviate pain and swelling, and promote strong bones. Best of all, this smoothie is absolutely delicious!
