Hey glow girls, I keep getting sore knees post working out. My knees are always creaky when I bend them anyway so I think they're just a bit rubbish! But I check my form and they never hurt during exercise - only after - and only when I bend them. Any tips on how to stop the creakiness and pain?

Alright so stress, a bacterial, viral or fungal infection in the joint, and an acidic diet can cause tissue breakdown. Plus a diet low in vitamins, minerals and Antioxidants and high in toxins cAn increase damage in the joints.
Key is to reduce inflammation and pain, prevent secondary infection, calm the nervous system and improve the diet.
You can use herbs as tinctures (15 drops x3 times a day in little water during one month): devil's claw, ginger, black cohosh, willow bark, big bean.
Then you can take supplements: bromelain, vitamin c, quercetin complex; essential fatty acids (fish oil or flax seed oil); glucosamine, chondroitin, man complex; calcium and magnesium (combined will strengthen your bones).
In addition take antioxidants supplements daily (will protect the tissue of the bone from damage).
Nutrition matters a lot too - anti-inflammatory foods: ginger and turmeric, onions, pineapple, seaweed. Foods that are rich in antioxidants. Cranberries are especially good. Sweet potatoes and kiwi too. Then boost alfalfa in your diet to strengthen bones and repair damage. Then almonds, walnuts, sesame, pumpkin seeds are rich in omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, bone-strengthening calcium and magnesium and anti-oxidant vitamin e.
If pb is serious there is a very good homeopathic remedy too.
Foods to avoid: too much protein (meat, legumes -peas, beans, lentils) as they promote acidity in body, salt, soy and vinegar. Foods from the nightshade family (aubergine, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes) as contain a substance that can make your pb worst.

Hi my dads had bother with this for a long time and I get a dodgy knee from time to time, I tore a ligament a whole back. From him I know glucosamine and fish oil supplements were something he was keen on but not sure if they'd be ok on the plan. A friend of mine told me to eat lots of nuts to help with that kind of thing! Hope that helps in some way :-) xx

Sarah here, I generally suffer form dodgy knees and have done for years from having danced a lot. For the last 6 months I've been taking omega supplements on a nutritionists advice for my wellbeing in general and must say my knees don't feel anywhere near as creaky and niggly. Not sure what this website is like but these are the ones I taste. They genuinely have absolutely no aftertaste or unpleasant 'repeating' on you afterwards. Xx

Got the same problem with my elbows and sometimes shoulders! I've been told rest is the only remedy :( but I'm addicted to my Glow Guides morning workout and yoga!
