Antioxidants in joint fluid are reduced in osteoarthritis. This is what you can do.

Excess reactive oxygen species and oxidative damage have been associated with the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis.  Joint fluid from patients with osteoarthritis is characterized by significantly decreased extracellular superoxide dismutase (SOD) levels, a significantly decreased glutathione level, and ascorbate when compared to knee joints with intact cartilage (Regan EA, et.al., 2008)....

Why would sitting for just a short time be dangerous?

Posted by:  Didrik Sopler
When you are sitting, the reduced muscular activity of the legs is decreasing the blood flow in the legs, deforming arterial segments. This is causing a decrease in shear stress of these arteries, causing reduced bio-availability of nitric oxide which again is increasing oxidative stress. The end result is impaired...

Is reducing your salt intake really that healthy?

We don’t need the same amount of salt all the time. Why is that? When it is hot and we perspire more, or when we exercise and perspire more, we lose more salt which needs to be replaced. On days like that, we need to eat more salt. One of...
