Are you burdened by chronic stiffness and achiness? One in 5 adults has been diagnosed with arthritis (inflammation in the joints) and the number climbs to 50% in those over 65.
Women are more susceptible than men due to genetic predisposition, hormones/menopause, pregnancy and physical structure.

There are two main types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is inflammation resulting from general “wear and tear” whereas rheumatoid arthritis is inflammation that stems from an immune disorder.
