    How to Maintain Healthy Joints*

    Joints are where bones, connective tissue and cartilage all come together in your body to promote movement. Your joint support system is responsible for sustaining the area around muscles and bones, where they provide shock absorption and support your internal structure.

    There are many ways to encourage healthy joint function, like maintaining a healthy weight and enhancing your diet with well-established joint care supplements like Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM.*

    As one of the most scientifically studied joint health ingredients available today, Glucosamine is naturally found within the joints, making it the ideal supplement for supporting healthy joints and connective tissue.* Glucosamine comes in two forms, Hydrochloride, and Sulfate, and lubricates the joints to improve mobility and flexibility.* Chondroitin is a naturally occurring nutrient found in connective tissue; in supplement form, it helps revitalize cartilage and support the structural framework of joints.* MSM is a natural form of sulfur, one of the raw materials for collagenwhich plays a key role in promoting healthy connective tissue.* MSM also synergistically enhances the benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin to support healthy cartilage.*

    Maintaining a healthy weight for your height can help promote healthy joints and comfortable movement, since every extra pound you carry on your frame puts four times the stress on your knees.1

    The health of your joints goes hand in hand with enjoying comfortable, easy movement as you age. As of 2006, about 46 million Americans which is nearly 1 in 5 adults have cause for concern when it comes to healthy joint function.2 Additionally, women are more likely than men to have concerns about their joint health; and the likely culprit is wearing high heel shoes. Research shows that wearing shoes with a three-inch heel can put seven times the amount of stress on your joints than shoes

    For many years, access to sports supplements in Thailand has been very limited and expensive. The cost alone has been prohibitive for the average Thai to gain access to quality supplements. Fortunately today, there is a wide variety of imported sports supplements such as whey protein available in Thailand at prices similar to that in Europe and Australia.

    The registration process for food products in Thailand is notoriously complicated and expensive. For example, a whey protein product needs a separate registration for every size and flavor of essentially the same product. The entire process to register one product can end up costing several thousand dollars and there is no guarantee that the product will even be accepted. Another issue lies with supplement ingredients. The English ingredient needs to be checked against an approved ingredient list which is in Thai. Even though the ingredient exists, if its not in the Thai approved ingredient list chances are the product will be rejected. Fortunately today, the Thai FDA appears to be relaxing their registration process for sports supplements.

    Companies such as Dymatize Nutrition and Optimum Nutrition now have official distributors in Thailand and their products are officially registered with the Thai FDA. Prior to this, sports supplements were often smuggled into the country and sold illegally usually at very high prices.

    Musashi, an Australian supplement company, has been trading in Thailand for several years and had essentially cornered the market for supplements such as whey protein. Because of this, the company was able to charge extortionate prices giving them a bad reputation in Thailand.

    Many new sports supplement retailers have emerged in the past year in Thailand making the market competitive. One such retailer, Phuket Health Shop, now has over 300 imported sports supplements in stock making them one of largest retailers of

    Now, when it comes to sports discussion, the NBA basketball is simply the best sport worth talking about this year. There are so many things going on the playoffs that there’s not a chance of running out of something to talk about. It’s not even only about the playoffs that fans can talk about. With only four teams remaining, there are plenty of fans of the eliminated teams pondering about what the future has in store for their club.

    The Sacramento Kings fans might have been the most relieved fans this year with the team staying in the city for what’s expected to be long long time. Still, aside from ownership issues, it’s nice to talk about the teams that failed this season and what they will be doing next season. Will they improve? Or will they further falter?

    Los Angeles Lakers

    Everyone’s disappointed with how the Lakers’ season ended. Without Kobe Bryan, Nash and a bunch of guys, they got their backside handed to them by the Spurs with a sweep in the first round of the playoffs.

    Entering next season, the Lakers have a bunch of problems the need to deal with. The first issue is whether Dwight Howard will be back. The second one is how to improve the team for the next season.

    Now, with the money to offer, the Lakers are likely to sign Howard back. It would be worse if Howard signed elsewhere, however, let’s stick to the idea if he indeed resigned
