Benefits of yoga for your joints

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. It involves a series of poses, breathing exercises, and meditation techniques designed to improve overall health and well-being. It is often described as a holistic practice because it incorporates different aspects of physical and mental health. 

The mental aspect of yoga involves practicing mindfulness and relaxation techniques, which can help to reduce stress, improve mental clarity, and promote relaxation. This is why yoga has become a popular form of exercise and stress relief in many parts of the world, and there are many different styles and approaches to practicing yoga.

The physical aspect of yoga involves practicing various postures or poses, also known as “asanas,” which can help to improve flexibility, balance, strength, and posture. Unlike running, basketball or soccer, yoga is a low-impact activity, which means that it is less likely to cause joint pain or exacerbate existing joint problems. Practicing yoga can help to improve joint health, reduce pain and inflammation, and promote overall well-being.

Yoga can do a lot for the knees and joints. Here are some of the key benefits:

Improves flexibility: Yoga poses can help increase the flexibility of the knees and other joints, which can help to reduce stiffness and improve range of motion.

Builds strength: Certain yoga poses can help strengthen the muscles around the knees and other joints, which can provide better support and stability.

Relieves stress: Stress can exacerbate joint pain, and yoga can help to relieve stress through deep breathing, meditation, and relaxation techniques.

Reduces inflammation: Yoga can help reduce inflammation in the body, which can be especially helpful for people with joint pain or arthritis.

Improves circulation: Yoga can improve blood circulation, which can help deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the joints, promoting healing and reducing pain.

And last, but not least, yoga also helps circulate synovial fluid. Staying mobile and hydrated keeps synovial fluid in the joints functional. The right amount of synovial fluid means that the cartilage-covered ends of the bones will slide easily when you move a joint, as opposed to the alternative of grinding.

Of course, there’s another way to keep your (knee) joints lubricated and foster the production of the aforementioned synovial fluid: LUBRICEN® Knee Patch. The smart adhesive patch will help keep the pain away, since the loss of synovial fluid – the body’s natural joint lubricant – is the “knee pain” most people feel when exercising or trying to be physically active; just take a look at our users’ reviews.

Key ingredients

The patented diamagnetic micro-array technology built into the patch enhances the delivery of key ingredients – Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate, and Menthol – into bioavailable areas of the knee. As a result, you and your knees will feel better and ready for action. 

Naturally, before you start doing yoga or any other low- or high-impact activity, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have existing joint problems or injuries. In any event, try to stay positive and keep your joints moving – nothing compares to the pain-free moments. May there be many more.
