The knees are one of the most important joints in the body. It’s important to keep your knees strong and healthy so that your mobility doesn’t deteriorate as you grow older. One of the most common reasons for severe pain in this joint is inflammation due to advanced wear of the cartilage on the moving surfaces of the knee joint.

The knees use their natural lubrication but as time goes by, they suffer many injuries, wounds and hits and become damaged and loose. Their tendons and ligaments become less flexible and natural lubrication is lost.

Therefore it is necessary that our body has a balanced diet to work better, in this case we must also focus our power on those products that allow us to keep our joints in good condition.

In this post we will show you a great smoothie which allows you to strengthen your ligaments and joints.
