7 Drug-FREE Solutions for Joint Pain!
Arthritis, it’s one of those things that they tell you comes with age. But it’s not something you should have to “get used to.”
Because, if you’re already suffering from arthritis, let’s be real – you’re probably aware of it almost every moment of the day.
And that’s all the more reason to talk about REAL solutions—no matter what month it is.
With that in mind, here are 7 drug-free solutions for arthritis joint pain.
Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in the country—but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Numerous supplements have been shown to tackle even the toughest joint pain. Here are seven of the best.
The combination of glucosamine and chondroitin have become synonymous with joint pain, and for good reason. Glucosamine is found in your cartilage, and the loss of cartilage is a key feature in the joint destruction and inflammation in arthritis.
Glucosamine helps protect joint cartilage and fights inflammation!
In fact, studies have shown that glucosamine can preserve the thickness of joint cartilage in the knee.
Arthritis is ultimately an inflammatory condition, and curcumin is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Studies show that curcumin helps regulate your body’s inflammatory response.
Studies of people with joint pain have shown that supplementation with curcumin improved joint function, decreased soreness, and increased function.
Boswellia is a gum extracted from a tree that’s been used in Eastern medicine for eons to treat inflammatory conditions.
Studies have shown that it helps your body maintain a healthy inflammatory response.
And one study published just last year showed that in people with long-term joint issues, Boswellia supported the body’s response to stiffness, range of motion, and overall joint function.
Omega-3s are especially well-known for their heart- and brain-boosting potential. But their joint benefits are just as impressive.
They have numerous functions that are particularly beneficial for joint health. For example, they help regulate structural maintenance, signaling, and membrane fluidity, and they reduce inflammation.
One study showed that just 3 grams of omega-3s daily helped reduced the development and severity of arthritis.
Omega-3s have been shown to reduce joint inflammation, and reduce pain, discomfort, and swelling.
- Vitamin D
A deficiency in vitamin D has been linked to rheumatoid arthritis. A deficiency has also been linked to the severity of the disease.
This likely has to do with vitamin D’s role in regulating the immune system.
MSM helps make connective tissue and has anti-inflammatory properties — two underlying issues that play a role in arthritis.
This makes MSM an ideal supplement for supporting joint health.
In fact, MSM’s role in the formation of connective tissue helps it stall and even reverse a root cause of joint pain.
You may have never heard of this one. Burdock is a vegetable that’s native to Asia and Europe, and has been used in these regions to treat anti-inflammatory conditions like joint pain and discomfort from swelling.
Whether you try one or more of these nutrients, the underlying idea is to take steps to reduce inflammation and support your connective tissue.
Doing so can have a dramatic impact on your joint health.
