More and more people are experiencing joint pain. This is because we have little time for physical activity, but also because of rising life expectancy. We’re living longer, and therefore using our bones and muscles more and more. In this article we’ll be telling you about a great salt and oil treatment that can help to alleviate this joint pain.

In general, people turn to chemical medication to relieve their symptoms, like ibuprofen or paracetamol. However, these medications are harmful to your stomach as well as your liver. The latter can be damaged by taking products to protect your stomach, too.

However, nature has given us other resources that can help without damaging other organs.

Our salt and oil treatment is great for osteoporosis and other bone and muscle issues. It’s also accessible and easy to make. All you need is a glass container to keep it in and a few minutes to apply it.

The wonderful properties of olive oil

Olive oil and olives

Olive oil is rich in something called polyphenols, which act like antioxidants. When the golden liquid comes into contact with your body, it slows down cellular aging, which means it takes longer for pain to appear.

It also contains oleocanthal, a compound that prevents enzymes that provoke inflammation from being activated. Thus, three tablespoons of oil is equivalent to a tenth of chemical anti-inflammatory drugs.

Likewise, it regulates stress through its monounsaturated fatty acids, a vital issue for good cardiovascular health. Keep in mind that good circulation is essential to keep your organs healthy, since it makes sure that they receive proper nutrition.

The amazing properties of sea salt

For our salt and oil treatment, we’ll use sea salt because of its incredible benefits. To start with, sea salt contains high levels of magnesium to strengthen your tissues. Because of thisit’s a good way to stop their breakdown, whether from time or disease.

In addition, the minerals in salt are very good for your immune system. As a result, your bones and muscles will heal more quickly. Thus, the consequences of a walk, a long car ride, or spending long hours sitting or standing will be much less painful.

As if that weren’t enough, sea salt also helps improve your circulatory system. That’s because it actually eliminates any excessive amounts of salt in your blood, besides lowering your blood pressure.
