Teddy Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States, is one of my personal heroes. It’s not so much his politics that I admire, but his appetite for living life to its fullest. He didn’t let childhood asthma get in his way; in fact, he led a more strenuous life because of his ailment, just to prove that he could.

I, too, try to live my life to the fullest each day and have a love of adventuring in the great outdoors. Unfortunately, as I’ve aged all of my outdoor activities have really done a number on my joints. Rather than simply push through the knee pain as Roosevelt might have, I’ve followed the advice of my doctor and now take a joint health supplement. The supplements have helped protect healthy cartilage in my joints, which will hopefully afford me a long life full of grand adventures of the type that my favorite president may have enjoyed.
