UCII® for Healthy Joints

As a health authority, you know the importance of maintaining and safeguarding joints. Joints allow people to run, jump, dance, and do a variety of other physical activities that keep them in shape or aid them in weight loss. Therefore, a healthy lifestyle becomes more difficult with joint conditions from wear, damage, and arthritis. And considering that 20% of people in the United States have arthritis, you should be well aware of the risks and how to help your clients avoid it so that they can maintain their personal fitness goals with longevity.

If your health facility practices, leads, or encourages any kind of physical fitness, keep these guidelines in mind to promote healthy joints:


  • Posture – Demonstrate the correct posture for each exercise. Slumping and slouching to achieve a sit up or weight curl can seriously stress your muscles and joints, especially your back and neck.
  • Breaks – Though you’re encouraging more movement to lose weight, don’t forget to simultaneously encourage breaks. Giving muscles and joints time to rest between sets or during high-intensity cardio can prevent spasms, sprains, and wear.
  • Water – Educate your clients on the necessity for water, whether they are working out or taking a supplement. The body requires water to process activity and substances. Without it, the results might not be optimal.
  • Other Services – Have you considered expanding your business to include massage or acupuncture service? Clients will feel like they are receiving spa treatment, all the while the services are loosening their muscles and helping release positive chemicals in the body to stimulate more fluid movement and improve joint function.
  • Go Big – Weight-lifters especially can benefit from your help in practicing correct muscle use. That means helping them focus on their bigger muscles and joints when lifting, thereby sparing the smaller ones that are more fragile.


Take your fitness authority to the next level with these guidelines and suggestions for better joint health. Then stock your shelves with products that incorporate UC-ll®. UC-ll® is a healthy joint supplement for better flexibility and mobility. Just 40mg each day can result in easier movement for your clients. That’s one small, convenient pill!
