Basically, this disease is part of the natural aging process of the joints. As we age, more and more water accumulates in the joints on the other hand losing proteins such as cartilage. Aside from the above mentioned reason, physical trauma might also lead to the formation of osteoarthritis.
You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair. An idiom which may be applied from our daily life, you just cannot control everything in your life, as much as you might want to but we can prevent the premature occurrence of this life-changing disease. A healthy diet is a good start. In the study conducted by the researchers at King's College, in London, a diet rich in garlic, onions and leeks could reduce your risk of developing the most common form of arthritis. Another way that can contribute to the prevention of osteoarthritis is Ganoderma Coffee. As discussed in our previous post Antioxidative Property of Coffee, we have discussed the therapeutic benefit of A Cup of Coffee for Everybody. With Ganoderma having anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating properties, future manifestations of osteoarthritis can be prevented. Nevertheless, the pain-reducing components of Ganoderma Coffee help in alleviating the pain brought about by this disease. In fact, in the study conducted, “Effect of Ganoderma lucidum on Postherpetic Neuralgia”, states that “Administration of hot water soluble extracts of Ganoderma lucidum (GI) (36 to 72 g dry weight/day) decreased pain dramatically. . . (Hijikata Y, Yamada S.)”.
Why not give yourself a chance to elude the cons of aging. Give Ganoderma Coffee a sip!
