Joint Pain and Gut Health

Link Between Gut Bacteria and Joint Pain

Studies are finding a solid link between gut health and Osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis involves the slow breakdown of cartilage, or the padding between bones in a joint. People suffering from arthritis often experience pain in a particular part of their body, most commonly in knees, hips, elbows, and hands. Many factors cause arthritis, making it difficult to treat. One common cause of arthritis is inflammation, and recent studies show a correlation between gut health, inflammation, and arthritis.

We have billions of bacteria living in our intestines. They are vital for good health and, over recent years, just how vital they are has become increasingly clear.
