Top 5 Joint Pain Supplements
If you’re living with joint pain, you don’t want Band-Aids… you want solutions.
Typically, it occurs as a result of two underlying problems:
- Cartilage breakdown
If you address those two issues, you can get to the ROOT of joint pain.
But traditional heavy-duty painkillers often come with unwanted side effects…
Some inexpensive supplements can tackle these two problems.
As a result, studies show they help reduce pain and stiffness while improving function and range of motion.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin:
These are two separate compounds, but they almost always show up together in joint supplements.
They combat joint pain because both are components of joint-cushioning cartilage.
This combination has been found to improve pain AND function in people with knee osteoarthritis.
A study found the powerful tag team to be as effective as the NSAID celecoxib at reducing pain, swelling, and stiffness.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural chemical that’s great for joint health. It contains sulfur to build healthy bones and joints and produce anti-inflammatory compounds.
These two actions strike at the heart of joint pain.
Taking MSM supplements has been shown to reduce joint and muscle pain, lower inflammation, and reduce oxidative stress.
It specifically improves arthritis-related joint pain—while also helping prevent the breakdown of cartilage associated with the condition.
Curcumin is the main compound in the spice turmeric. It makes this list because of its potent anti-inflammatory properties.
Curcumin directly interacts with pro-inflammation cytokines, controlling inflammation and reducing joint pain.
Studies show a daily dose of about 1,000 mg of curcumin can reduce joint pain as effectively as some NSAIDs.
Omega-3s (found in fish oil) are another anti-inflammatory powerhouse that effectively relieves joint pain in people with arthritis.
Studies show that these essential fatty acids slashed joint swelling, stiffness, and tenderness in people with rheumatoid arthritis.
In fact, they worked SO WELL that rheumatoid arthritis patients could stop taking their meds in one study.
Boswellia was prized by past civilizations, ranking as high in value as gold and ivory. The herb has long been used medicinally.
Boswellia makes the list today because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. The extract improves pain and physical dysfunction in inflammatory conditions like arthritis and IBS.
It works especially well when combined with curcumin. In one 12-week study, a Boswellia and curcumin combo performed better than curcumin alone at managing osteoarthritis-related pain.
P.S. Still battling joint pain? A double-blind, placebo-controlled study proves you should have THIS novel solution in your arsenal. (Grandmothers everywhere will definitely approve.) I’ve got all the details RIGHT HERE.
