May is Arthritis Awareness month...

During this month of May - we will focus on Arthritis Awareness. The Arthritis foundation has a nice website with lots of information. Arthritis is inflammation in your joints. There are over 100 arthritis and arthritis-like conditions with the most commonly known being rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and juvenile arthritis. Arthritis is characterized by pain, inflammation and fatigue. The CDC reported in 2005 that 46 million adults in the US will have doctor diagnosed arthritis. According to that same report, 19 million adults have activity limitations attributed to arthritis.

So what can you do about arthritis? We will be posting about this topic all throughout the month of May. But to get you started there are two simple things you can do for arthritis. The first is get to an appropriate body weight. If you are overweight or obese, you are increasing your risk for arthritis. According the Johns Hopkins Arthritic Center, being 10 pounds overweight increases the force on the knee by 30-60 pounds with each step. Ouch!

Start using Bios Life Slim. Bios Life Slim can help reduce the amount of wear and tear that comes from carrying excess fat on your body. Slim works best as part of an established regular meal pattern. Eat three healthy meals a day, with four hours between each meal and don't eat after dinner. It's one simple rule and one simple product - Slim is the difference. Slim can help you in your quest to transform your body and by extension - your life.

The second simple thing you can do is to get moving. Walk, cycle, swim are among a few of the activities you can do to get your body moving. Regular exercise can keep the joints flexible. Regular exercise also reduces your risk of metabolic syndrome (high cholesterol, high blood sugar, large waist circumference, etc...). Get the most out of Slim by 4-4-12 and moving and see how this changes your life for the better!
