 January 13, 2016

There are many different joints in our body, but there is no doubt that the knees are among the most important ones.

The knees are here to support the correct posture of the body and they also allow us to run, walk, jump and stand in a proper way.

The aging process brings many wounds, injuries and other things that make them loose. It also makes the ligaments and tendons in this area less mobile and flexible while the lubrication in them is lost.

Even though this is a natural process, we must take some measures that will make our knees stronger and more flexible.

In this way we will still be able to make sharp and quick movements.

The following is a completely natural recipe that will strengthen tendons and ligaments in knee and improve your overall lifestyle.

This completely natural smoothie is packed with magnesium, silicon, bromelain and vitamin C – compounds that have strong anti-inflammatory properties and soothe pain.

In addition, these essential nutrients provide energy and strength to all bodily systems and parts.

  • 1 cup of instant oatmeal
  • 1 cup (250 ml) of water
  • Two cups of pineapple chunks (sliced)
  • 1,5 Oz (40 gr) of raw honey
  • 1,5 Oz (40 gr) of crushed almonds
  • 0,25 Oz (7 gr) of cinnamon
