The health benefits of Tai chi

Tai chi is a Chinese mind-body practice believed to aid the flow of energy throughout the body and provide several health benefits.

HealthCentral.com reports tai chi might help with stress, concentration and anxiety. One study found that patients with knee or hip osteoarthritis who practiced tai chi experienced “large and sustained clinical improvements in pain.” Another study concluded that knee osteoarthritis patients taking tai chi classes had decreased pain and improved function.

The bioenergetic therapy, sometimes called “moving meditation,” involves slow, gentle movements while breathing deeply and meditating. In addition to these benefits, it is believed tai chi might support organ health, digestive system function, mental state and balance, according to the National Institutes of Health. It’s also a good aerobic exercise.

Proteolytic enzyme supplements can aid therapeutic modalities, such as tai chi, that support inflammatory conditions. Proteolytic enzymes help modulate the natural inflammatory process, while enzyme-based supplements combined with certain herbal ingredients, such as boswellia, can help with pain and swelling.
