Joints Rejuvenation

According to an article in the May ’06 issue of Prevention, lack of selenium may be a source of joint problems. Scientists at the University of North Carolina de­termined that by looking at subjects’ toenails. Those whose nails con­tained the most sele­nium were less likely to have osteoarthritis in either knee. Rec­ommended daily intake of selenium is 55 micrograms. Check your multivitamin-and-mineral supplement to make sure you’re getting enough.
Good food sources include:
Brazil nuts
