Keeping Joints Supple And Healthy
During retirement our joints may be largely taken for granted but they are vital to your health and enjoying your retirement glory ride.

Arthritis is a difficult condition to put up with, especially if you are keen to keep active with family, friends and pets in your retirement. Think ahead. Damaged or worn and torn joints are difficult to repair and may make it very difficult for you to continue enjoyable everyday activities like running, playing tennis or even walking up stairs.

Real Life Joint Relief
Founder of Glory Ride, Ken Sheridan, has terrible pain with his knees because of wear and tear after running several marathons and being a lifelong tennis player. He has been seeing the doc about the pain he gets for years and has tried several joint medications. As he is walking, his knees often twitch and he may wobble a bit. With the Litozin he finds he is able to walk freely with no pain in his knees.
Having taken these pills for an initial few weeks, they have made an immediate improvement in previously sore knee joints. This is very encouraging as other over the counter medications have tried without seeing any results as obvious and as quick as the Litozin.
Ken said: ‘I’m looking forward to continuing with Litozin to monitor its performance over a greater period of time and activities, which will work the joints a bit harder.
Litozin is available at Holland & Barrett stores nationwide at a price of £22.00.

Keep trim and try to stick to a steady weight because carrying those extra pounds may be great after a BBQ or a night of cheese platters and red wine, but that weight will add pressure on your joints especially your knees, hips and spine, it can lead to more joint pain and damage if you're already suffering with arthritis.
To keep a healthy weight, you don't need to be told to keep on top of a well balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, with ample lean meat (especially white meat) and fish, but you do need to keep up all forms of physical activity.
We've been told that Glucosamine and chondroitin are great to help to maintain healthy joint function and repair joint cartilage. Omega 3 fatty acids from oily fishes will also lubricate the joints and maintain mobility.
