Time to Move


Where would we be without our joints? We are able to enjoy a stroll around the park, ski on a snowy mountain, throw a curveball, play with our children, and enjoy dancing in the moonlight all because of our working joints. However, when our joints give us pain, we feel the curveball has been thrown at us and we will do anything to feel better again. The constant discomfort has us “running” to our doctors for relief.

According to Avera Orthopedics, “4.5 million patients need medical care yearly for shoulder pain alone in the U.S.”1 54.4 million people in the U.S. have some sort of joint pain.2  Unfortunately, the amount of people to experience this type of pain is only projected to increase. What are the options? Are we just doomed to pain?

We need to understand the pain, manage the pain, and hopefully heal completely from it. Wouldn’t it be great if we could prevent this type of pain from ever occurring?

More than likely, our medicine cabinet has types of pain-blocking pills. These pills inhibit chemicals that can cause inflammation in our bodies or reduce pain by acting on pain receptors in the brain. However, there can be a high price when putting these chemicals in our bodies. The risks include heart trouble, including strokes and blood clots as well as damage to the lining of our stomach which gives way to stomach ulcers and heartburn.3

There is another way. Look no further than the U.S. native plant filled with aronia berries. These berries have been traditionally used by Native Americans to cure colds. The strong antioxidative potential is extraordinary, but there are many other health-promoting strengths of the fruit, namely promoting healthy joints.4, 5  This is because the fruit is high in anthocyanins and tannins, which gives the aronia berry the tart, dry taste.6  There is growing research and evidence around this little, purple berry. The findings show it is powerful for our health.
