Sore joints supplements: Chondroitin: A Supplement for Osteoarthritis
Herbs and Supplements for Arthritis – CreakyJoints
Some people with arthritis feel better or have symptom relief with herbal and dietary supplements. There are many to choose from, but there’s not much solid, scientific evidence to show they really work. Some herbs and supplements have been studied in smaller scale tests compared to pharmaceuticals, due to several factors. Most notably, high quality research on natural products and dietary supplements are difficult to obtain due to the high cost of doing research and the difficulty for manufacturers to patent natural products. In almost every case, herbs and supplements need to be researched more to say if they will work for arthritis or not.
However, it’s up to you if you want to give them a try. They may work for some people with arthritis, but not for others. Or they may make you feel a little bit better, but they won’t replace your arthritis drugs.
Before you take any herbal treatments or dietary supplements, including vitamins or minerals, let your doctor know. Some herbs and supplements can interact with medicines, or even do the same thing — so they can add to the effects of your drugs. So let your doctor know everything you are taking for your arthritis.
In addition, there’s not much testing of herbs or supplements you find in health food stores, online, at alternative healing shops or fairs, or other sources. Some products may not even contain what the bottle or package says it does. Or the actual concentration of the dosage may be very different from what the label states. So use caution and good sense before you buy or try anything. Consult a physician who is knowledgeable about dietary supplements and can guide you on selecting high quality supplement brands to enhance the safety and effectiveness of your treatment regimen. Physicians trained in the specialty of integrative medicine have the highest level of training and comfort level with dietary supplements, nutrition plans, and lifestyle modification to combine with conventional medicine treatments. Collaboration between your rheumatologist and integrative physician may help ensure the safest, most effective treatment plan if you choose to use supplements with your medications to control arthritis and promote wellness.

The following is a descriptive list of some dietary supplements patients have used to support their health. Take note that research on these products and other therapies for arthritis occur over time to either support or discourage their use. Check with a physician who is knowledgeable about natural products to get the full assessment of risks, benefits, and potential interactions with your medications.
- Avocado Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU): A natural vegetable extract made from ⅓ avocado oil and ⅔ soybean oil. May improve pain or function.
- Black Currant Oil: An natural supplement made from 15-20% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fats. May ease inflammation.
- Borage Oil: Made from 20-26% GLA. Also called borage seed oil. Rich with essential fatty acids that may help ease inflammation or act to block inflammatory cells.
- Boswellia: Also called Indian Frankincense. Made from the boswellia serrata plant, it may ease pain and improve joint function.
- Bromelain: Supplement made from pineapple enzymes. Some people with arthritis find that it can reduce joint pain.
- Capsaicin: Made from oil in hot chili peppers. It can be applied as a topical cream, gel, or patch. It depletes the amount of a neurotransmitter called substance P that sends pain messages to the brain, so it can distract you from sensing pain in a joint or muscle. Take care not to touch the eyes or mouth after applying capsaicin to the skin; use gloves.
- Cat’s Claw: Supplement made from a wild vine found in Central and South America. May have healthy effects on the immune system.
- Chondroitin Sulfate: Supplement made from the cartilage of cows, pigs, or fish. It’s designed to help replace worn-down cartilage in your joints, to reduce pain and inflammation, and improve joint function. It’s usually used by people with osteoarthritis.
- Curcumin: Curcumin is derived from the root turmeric. This herbal treatment has potent anti-inflammatory effects, so it could help ease joint pain and swelling.
- Devil’s Claw: Supplement made from a plant native to southern regions of Africa. Used to relieve joint pain and inflammation, as well as back pain.
- DHEA: Supplements made from a natural hormone made in your adrenal glands on top of your kidneys. There’s good evidence that DHEA can help improve bone density and improve lupus symptoms, but there’s less proof that it helps people with RA. This hormone can convert to estrogen or testosterone, so patients with breast, ovarian, testicular, or prostate cancer should avoid DHEA.
- DMSO: Also called dimethyl sulfoxide. By-product of paper manufacturing, DMSO can be found in gel or cream form and rubbed into the skin. It’s meant to ease pain and inflammation, and improve joint mobility. Research on DMSO for arthritis is scant.
- Evening Primrose: Herbal oil rich in omega-6 fatty acids. It’s used to lower pain and inflammation, and some evidence shows it could ease morning stiffness.
- Fish Oil: Supplements of natural liver oil from fatty fish in capsule form, or in fish you consume in your diet. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Could reduce joint pain, inflammation, and morning stiffness.
- Flaxseed Oil: Herbal supplement taken in capsule form. It’s rich in alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid that builds healthy cells. It’s used to ease joint inflammation, but there’s not much evidence that it works for RA. Eating ground flaxseed will provide more fiber along with ALA compared to flaxseed oil.
- Ginger: Natural root ground into powder, taken in capsule or oil form, added to foods or eaten in tea, pickled, or candied form. Could reduce chemicals in your body that play a role in inflammation. Could also ease pain in a similar way as aspirin. Effective at easing nausea.
- GLA: Gamma linoleic acid, found in other herbs like borage oil or evening primrose. Rich in omega-6 fatty acids. Used in supplement or food form to ease joint pain, stiffness, and swelling.
- Glucosamine Sulfate: Supplement made from the shells of fish like shrimp or crabs (avoid if with shellfish allergy). Glucosamine is used to slow deterioration of joint cartilage, relieve joint pain related to osteoarthritis, and improve joint mobility.
- Green-lipped Mussel: Shellfish found in the waters off New Zealand. Its hard shells are ground into powder and put in capsules. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids that may have anti-inflammatory effects and ease joint pain.
- Melatonin: Supplement containing a natural hormone that’s found in your brain. The hormone helps control your circadian rhythms, which tell your brain when to sleep and when to wake. Melatonin capsules may help you sleep better if your arthritis symptoms keep you awake. Nightmares or vivid dreams may occur with this supplement.
- MSM: Methylsulfonylmethane, an organic sulfur compound found in animals and plants. It’s often taken in capsules or in a cream that you rub into your skin. Meant to reduce pain and inflammation.
- Pine Bark: Herbal extract from the bark of trees. Also called by a common brand name, Pycnogenol®. It contains procyandin, an antioxidant that may block pro-inflammatory enzymes. Not much evidence supports its efficacy in RA.
- Rose Hips: Herbal supplement made from the tiny fruits of wild rose bushes. Found in capsule form as well as teas. Rich in polyphenols and anthocyaninins, natural chemicals that may ease joint inflammation. Also rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant.
- Sam-E: Short for S-adenosyl methionine. Found naturally in the body, it is a precursor to making serotonin, which helps regulate mood. Taken in capsule or pill form, it’s used as a supplement to treat pain, stiffness, and swelling, rebuild cartilage, and improve mobility. Sam-E may also help improve depressed mood.
- St. John’s Wort: Herbal supplement made from a flowering plant found mostly in Europe. It’s mainly used to ease mild to moderate depression symptoms, but some say it can reduce inflammation and pain in arthritis. Do not take with birth control or HIV medications.
- Stinging Nettle: Herbal supplement made from a common plant that stings your skin if you brush by it. It can be eaten or cooked into food, or taken as a supplement. It’s used to ease inflammation and pain, and may work best for hayfever. Its use inarthritis has been studied primarily in vitro (test tubes) and may be helpful in reducing joint pain.
- Thunder God Vine (Tripterygium wilfordii): Herbal supplement made from a plant that’s used to improve pain, tender joints, and inflammation in RA. One large study compared it to sulfasalazine (Azulfidine®) which is used to treat RA, and found it effective, with a list of mild to moderate side effects.
- Valerian: Herbal supplement made from a plant root. Can be taken in capsule form or as a tea. Used mainly to treat insomnia, but may also ease pain, and have antispasmodic and sedative effects that could relax tense muscles or joints.
- Vitamin C: A water-soluble vitamin, also known as L-ascorbic acid that is naturally present in some foods, such as citrus fruits. Has been shown to build collagen and connective tissue in the body.
- Vitamin D: This is actually a hormone used by every cell of the body, derived from the conversion of inactive vitamin D to its active form by sunlight exposure to the skin. This vitamin helps improve bone density and is deficient in many patients who lack adequate sunlight exposure. Vitamin D supplements can replace deficient levels while avoiding sun damage to the skin. Vitamin D can become toxic if taken in high amounts for a long period of time, so be sure to have your physician check your vitamin D-25 OH levels periodically.
While research is mixed on the effectiveness of most CAM therapies for arthritis symptoms, some show promise. It’s most likely that you will find these therapies helpful as part of your overall arthritis treatment plan, but they won’t be a magic cure for your symptoms or allow you to stop taking your medications.
Do glucosamine and chondroitin supplements really work?
Arthritis, Self Care, Knee
We would like to say, “Yes, the supplements always work and relieve pain.” But the best we can say is, “They work for some people, some of the time..”
Major studies show they may work slightly better than placebo for people who have knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.
If you decide to try glucosamine and chondroitin on your own, talk to your healthcare provider to make sure there is no danger of interactions with your other medications.
What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine sulfate is a chemical found naturally in the fluid that surrounds your joints. Some scientists believe glucosamine:
- increases the strength of the cartilage
- thickens the synovial fluid
- improves the elasticity to your connective tissues.
Using a supplement to support the surrounding structures of the joint may help provide pain relief and prevent further joint damage. Glucosamine supplements may provide relief for osteoarthritis pain.
There are two main categories of glucosamine supplements. One contains ingredients naturally derived from shellfish. The other uses synthetic ingredients created in a laboratory.
If you decide to take glucosamine supplements, be aware, there may be some side effects for people who suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure. There is evidence that glucosamine raised blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
What is chondroitin?
Chondroitin sulfate also occurs naturally in the cartilage that cushions your joints and prevents bone-on-bone friction during movement.
Joint supplements often combine chondroitin with glucosamine and other chemicals to slow the breakdown of cartilage. Studies show chondroitin slow the development of cataracts and prevent urinary tract infections.
There are a few precautions to consider.
If you have a preexisting condition such as asthma or hemophilia, or if you have a family history of prostate cancer, avoid using chondroitin. Adding a chondroitin supplement may make your situation worse.
Another factor to consider is the source of your chondroitin supplement. Since chondroitin is made from animal products, you need to purchase a brand that has a reputation for using high-quality ingredients.
Talk to your healthcare provider before taking a chondroitin supplement. He or she will also be able to recommend the best brand and discuss possible interactions with your other medications.
Checking for medication conflicts is especially crucial if you’re taking Coumadin or are undergoing cancer treatments.
If you are approved to take chondroitin and glucosamine, and it works, it’s one more way you can care for your joints and relieve the pain and stiffness.

The Best Foods to Help Relieve Your Joint Pain – Cleveland Clinic
You may already be taking medicines — either prescription or over-the-counter — to relieve morning stiffness, inflammation and pain in your joints. But many studies show that certain foods, spices and supplements may help in addition to medicines.

Functional medicine dietitian Ariana Fiorita, RDN, LD, IFNCP, talks about which healthy foods may help ease your joint pain:
The Mediterranean diet
Many studies have found that the Mediterranean diet has various health benefits, some of which seem to overlap those attributed to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
A Mediterranean diet consists of a high level of low-glycemic fruit, vegetables and legumes; a high level of unsaturated fats, especially olive oil, complemented by a modest amount of alcohol, mainly in the form of wine; a moderate to high level of wild fish; and a low level of dairy products and red meat.
A 2015 Michigan study showed correlations between a whole-foods, plant-based diet and significantly improved self-assessed functional status and reduction in pain among adult patients with osteoarthritis. A whole-foods, plant-based diet consisted of fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains and is free of refined foods, which follows the Mediterranean approach.
The beneficial effects of fish oils are attributed to their omega-3 fatty acid content. Studies of fish oil consumption show that it has anti-inflammatory benefits and is particularly helpful for joint pain.
Natural sources of fish oil include cold-water fish, such as wild salmon, trout and sardines. Vegan and vegetarian sources included flax seed, chia seeds and organic soybeans.
A 2008 Australian study is one of many that showed fish oil reduced joint pain, increased cardiovascular health and reduced the need for NSAIDs.
“Just one serving of cold-water fish twice a week is enough,” says Fiorita. “Try a high-quality daily fish oil supplement in addition to consuming natural dietary sources.”
“In addition to other vegetables, you should try to eat a half cup of a cruciferous vegetable every day, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or kale,” she says. “These are all nutritional powerhouses, chock full of antioxidants, vitamins and fiber.”
In 2005, a team of researchers in Maryland studied the effects of sulphoraphane, an antioxidant compound found in cruciferous vegetables, and found that it blocks an enzyme that causes joint pain and inflammation. In addition to aiding arthritis patients, it may be helpful for athletes who put a lot of pressure on their joints.
Spices and herbs
Turmeric and ginger are spices noted for their anti-inflammatory benefit. Often used in Indian cuisine, turmeric also is used in traditional Asian medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties.
A 2006 Arizona study showed promising research linking turmeric to the prevention of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.
Add turmeric and ginger to smoothies, eggs, or sauces for an anti-inflammatory punch.
Green tea is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, and its effects on health is the subject of much research.
A 2008 study in Maryland showed that green tea induced changes in arthritis-related immune responses.
Long-term use of NSAIDs can have adverse effects and cause discomfort; the polyphenolic compounds from green tea possess anti-inflammatory properties and have been shown to be an effective complement to nutritional therapy.
Choose organic green tea to reduce exposure to pesticides.
Foods to avoid
Avoid certain foods if you’re trying to lessen joint pain.
“Sugars and refined grains, including white rice, pasta and white bread, are the worst food culprits when it comes to reducing or relieving joint inflammation,” she says.
Try limiting daily added sugar to six teaspoons for women and nine teaspoons for men. When using sugar, choose natural sources like honey, maple syrup, and coconut sugar.
“Choose grass-fed or wild game over conventional sources due to the healthier fat profile,” says Fiorita. “Another big no-no, for many health reasons, is trans fat or partially hydrogenated oil.”
Also, avoid omega-6 fatty acids. The American diet is generally higher in omega-6s due to the high consumption of processed foods. The extra consumption of omega-6s can promote inflammation. Sources include corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil, grapeseed oil and vegetable oil. Check the ingredients lists for condiments such as mayonnaise and salad dressing.
If you feel that you’ve cleaned up your diet and are still experiencing food-related joint pain, consult with a registered dietitian who is proficient in identifying food sensitivities for a personalized approach.
10 Foods That Help Reduce Joint Pain
Ben Franklin was right when he said: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We agree, so our orthopaedic specialists encourage patients to adopt dietary and exercise habits that support strong bones and joints.
Your everyday routine can have a big impact on the health and longevity of your joints. For example, choosing foods that build bone density, strengthen connective tissue and reduce inflammation can help you prevent injuries and preserve your joints for a long, active life.
We often see patients who are curious about making lifestyle changes to reduce joint pain. Yet our orthopaedic doctors recognize that it’s hard to change everything at once. Therefore, taking a look at your diet is a great place to start.
Here’s our take on 10 foods that may help reduce pain and increase mobility in the joints:
1. Omega-3 Fatty Acids / Fish Oils
Cold-water fish are a terrific source of Omega-3s fatty acids, which are essential nutrients for human health. These important nutrients are also sometimes referred to as polyunsaturated fatty acids. Not only are they proven to reduce inflammatory proteins in the body, but they also improve brain function and lower risk of heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses.
Omega-3 can be found in cold-water fish such as tuna, salmon, trout, halibut and sardines. Taking a daily fish oil supplement is another way to absorb Omega-3s.
2. Nuts and Seeds
There’s good news for the vegans and vegetarians among us. Omega-3s can also be found in a variety of nuts and seeds. A small daily portion of walnuts, almonds, flax seeds, chia seeds or pine nuts can help reduce inflammation in the joints and connective tissue.
Protecting Connective Tissue
3. Brassica Vegetables
What are those, you might ask. Also known as cruciferous vegetables, brassicas are commonly associated with the mustard and cabbage family. Leafy greens like mustard greens, arugula, kale and purple cabbage are in the brassica family. Several other popular (and tasty!) vegetables make the list, including broccoli, cauliflower and Brussel sprouts.
This particular subset of the vegetable population has been known to block an enzyme that causes swelling in the joints. Plus, they’re chocked full of fiber, vitamins and nutrients for overall health and well-being.
4. Colorful Fruits
Fruits sometimes get a bad rap because of their high sugar content, but many are excellent antioxidants. Just like with vegetables, certain fruits are more effective than others in reducing inflammation in the body.
We’re particularly partial to blueberries, which are high in anthocyanins – one of the most powerful flavonoids. These help “turn off” inflammatory responses in the body.
Apples are another fiber-rich, anti-inflammatory fruit, and they deliver added benefits for gut health.
Pineapple is also on our short list for its bromelain content, a nutrient that has shown to reduce joint pain caused by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. However, most of the bromelain is found in the stem and core of the pineapple, so blend the core into a smoothie to get the maximum benefit.
Recipes for Arthritis Relief
And finally, tomatoes (yes, they’re a fruit). Tomatoes contain the powerful antioxidant, lycopene. Cooked tomatoes are even more lycopene-rich than uncooked ones. Be sure to consume the skin to get the greatest benefit.
5. Olive Oil
Toss out your vegetable oil, sunflower oil and peanut oil – all of which can increase inflammation. Instead, opt for a few tablespoons of olive oil for cooking and making salad dressings. Better yet, go with the extra virgin variety that is less processed. Often associated with a Mediterranean diet, olive oil is an unsaturated “healthy” fat. And guess what … it’s another source of Omega-3!
6. Lentils and Beans
Beans and lentils are known for their health benefits. They’re an excellent source of protein, fiber and essential minerals. They also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Black beans, lentils, chickpeas, pinto beans and soybeans are all great sources of anthocyanins – that magical flavonoid that reduces inflammation.
7. Garlic and Root Vegetables
Garlic, onions, ginger and turmeric have anti-inflammatory properties. Various studies have shown that these pungent root vegetables can be useful in treating symptoms of arthritis and other joint pain. Incorporate these vegetables into meals for added flavor. Plus, they’re all available in a supplement.
8. Whole Grains
Research suggests that proteins found in refined grains (such as white bread, white rice and regular pasta) may trigger an inflammatory response in the body. However, high-fiber whole grains help produce fatty acids that are thought to counteract inflammation. Therefore, stick with the whole grains.
The Arthritis Foundation provides a detailed list of grains that are recommended for arthritis suffers – including whole wheat, whole oats, barley and rye. For more information, see Best Grains for Arthritis.
9. Bone Broth
Glucosamine, chondroitin and amino acids are well documented to help maintain healthy joints, while calcium is essential for bone density. Bone broth contains all of these. The gelatin-like substance that comes from cooking bones mimics collagen that occurs naturally in our joints, tendons and ligaments. Whether or not bone broth can actually stimulate regrowth of cartilage is a fiercely debated topic in the medical filed. But taken regularly as an oral supplement, it has been known to reduce joint pain and increase function for people with arthritis.
Bone broth can be consumed as a hot broth or used in recipes as a cooking base or sauce. Get tips on bone broth preparation from these dietitians.
10. Dark Chocolate
Now we’re talking! Indeed, chocolate has anti-inflammatory properties. Cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate, contains antioxidants that can counteract genetic predisposition to insulin resistance and inflammation. The higher the percentage of cocoa in the chocolate, the higher its anti-inflammatory effect.
But remember, chocolate can be high in sugar and fat, so enjoy it in moderation. If you’re going to indulge, choose chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa.
So there you have it – our 10 picks for foods that help reduce joint pain and inflammation. Of course, there are some DON’Ts when it comes to eating for joint health. Pay careful attention to the effects of foods that can be linked to inflammation:
- Limit refined grains like pasta, rice and white bread.
- Keep salt to a minimum. Salt causes fluid retention, which is associated with tissue swelling. Additionally, the Arthritis Foundation reports that limiting salt intake can reduce calcium loss, thereby reducing osteoporosis and fracture risk.
- Steer clear of processed foods whenever possible.

Joint Supplements | Vitamins for Bone & Muscle Pain
If your bones and muscles are giving you grief, it can easily affect your day-to-day life. Holland & Barrett don’t want you to go through that, so we offer a vast range of high-quality bone, joint and muscle support like Calcium Tablets, Glucosamine & Chondroitin Supplements, Vitamin D Spray and so much more.
What are bones?
It may seem like a silly question, but how much do we actually know about our own bones (hanging up a skeleton at Halloween doesn’t count as expertise we’re afraid!). Our bones are living structures that constantly renew themselves to keep our bodies strong, protect our organs and allow us to move freely.
A substance called collagen makes up the majority of our bones, combined with a mineral called phosphate. This duo creates a robust yet flexible structure that can actually withstand forces up to three times our own body weight.
There are two types of bone in our bodies: cortical bones which create the sturdy, solid outer ‘tube’ and trabecular bones that make up the soft and honey-comb-like inner structure, which makes bones hard yet lightweight.
How many bones are in the human body?
Adult human bodies have 206 bones – the longest being the femur (thighbone) and the smallest the stirrup (a tiny bone in the ear). When we are babies, we have 300 bones – but some of these fuse as we grow, like the bones in the skull.
How can I keep my bones healthy?
There are a number of ways that you can maintain your bone health:
Exercise: keeping your body moving is key to building bones (we knew there was a reason they made us do P.E in school!). This is because when we exercise, our muscles tug against our bones and trigger new growth.
Diet: eating calcium-rich foods is key for good bone health – about 99% of the calcium we absorb makes its way to our bones and teeth. Make sure you eat lots of green leafy vegetables, dairy foods and foods fortified with calcium e.g. some soya milks, and if you want extra reassurance, you can take a Calcium Supplement.
Vitamin D: contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and calcium absorption/utilisation. You could find yourself in short supply of it if you’re in one of the high risk groups, or during the Winter months, so a Vitamin D Supplement could help.
Vitamin K: found in leafy green veg, Vitamin K contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
What are muscles?
Whether you have muscles like Arnie or avoid the gym at all costs, everybody has the same number of muscles – 600 in fact. They’re made of thousands of little fibres, each of which is controlled by a nerve that makes it relax and contract. The more fibres they have, the bigger they get.
How can I keep my muscles healthy?
Resistance exercise: help your muscles generate more force by lifting weights, using exercise bands and performing body weight exercises like squats, yoga and push ups.
Diet: eating a healthy, balanced diet including a variety of wholegrains, proteins, fruits and vegetables will provide your muscles with the nutrients needed to stay strong and functioning properly.
Vitamin D: the ‘sunshine vitamin’ strikes again, Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle health and reduces the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness.
Is there a supplement I can take for bones, muscles and joints?
Yes! We have formulated several products that contain ingredients that help keep bones, muscles and joints healthy at the same time. One product you can try is the Glucosamine Plus Freedom Softgel Capsules. They contain omega 3, vitamin C, vitamin D, manganese, zinc, glucosamine and chondroitin, all in one handy capsule.
Our joint supplements provide a multitude of benefits and ease the symptoms over time of conditions such as osteoporosis and rheumatoid aches. Joint supplements contribute to bone health as well as supplements such as glucosamine integral in the formation of cartilage in the joint. Our joint supplements come in a variety of formats such as joint tablets and sprays, with many of our products suitable for vegans.
Joint Pain Supplements – Elite Pain & Health
Has your chronic joint pain really been acting up lately? Do you feel like your arthritis is starting to get the best of you? People suffering from joint pain are limited in their daily activities. You may miss the freedom you had in your pre-joint pain days. Sometimes medication is beneficial, but if you prefer not to take prescription medications – there are alternatives. Joint pain supplements have been used by humans for centuries and we are learning more about potential benefits all the time.
Prescription drugs aren’t the only method of easing those throbs and twinges. Natural joint pain supplements, while not necessarily a treatment regimen in and of themselves, can boost the effectiveness of your prescription and better alleviate your symptoms. Check out the following suggestions to add to your shopping list and help fight your chronic pain.
Turmeric as a Joint Pain Supplement
Turmeric is a substance related to ginger, turmeric is a brightly-colored herb that contains the chemical curmucin, which may relieve swelling and pain. This supplement can be consumed by tea or tablet form. At our clinic, we have seen patients improve with a combination product of pharmaceutical grade CBD (cannabidiol – THC-free supplement) and turmeric. Many patients with chronically inflamed joints have reported significant improvements with this combination.
Glucosamine and chondroitin for Arthritic Joints
Grouped because of their similarity, glucosamine and chondroitin are often taken together. Glucosamine and chondroitin can help slow the further degeneration of your joints. Both of these compounds are found in healthy cartilage, so these substances can, theoretically, help to rebuild healthy cartilage as well as relieve pain. These joint pain supplements are among the most commonly used in America.
MSM – methylsulfonylmethane for Joint pain
Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM, is a form of sulfur that is usually taken orally. It is also be applied to the skin. This supplement eases joint inflammation and pain, and as a bonus, MSM also improves constipation, energy, and quality of the hair and skin.
Ginger for Joint Stiffness
Ginger-based supplements can be introduced into your diet via tea form, as a cooking ingredient, or as a pill. It has long been known to reduce swelling and stiffness.
Willow for Joint Inflammation
Willow has been used medicinally since ancient times. This herb is ingestible either by tea form or by a pill. Willow possesses salicin, which is an anti-inflammatory compound. In fact, salicin is related to the most commonly used anti-inflammatory worldwide – aspirin.
Boswellia or Frankincense
Boswellia is actually another name for frankincense. This substance is the resin that is extracted from the Boswellia plant and is available in pill form and as a skin cream. Boswellia contains a compound called 5-Loxin, which can help alleviate swelling and pain in your joints. Give this joint pain supplement a try and let us know what you think!
Besides being a refreshing beverage, green tea contains a compound called ECCG that boasts antioxidant effects that can reduce your inflammation. Green tea is also consumed via pill forms to make it more convenient to take regularly. Possibly the tastiest joint supplement discussed here!
Essential oils, including eucalyptus, can greatly benefit you if you suffer from joint pain. They possess anti-inflammatory abilities and can help reduce your aches. Simply massage a view drops onto your skin – possibly while having a massage which can add to the pain relief.
Summing Up Joint Pain Supplements
While it’s certainly worth considering these supplements to aid your arthritis, be sure to check with your doctor before you make a firm choice. While the effects are typically minimal, if present at all, some supplements can interact negatively with medications, especially blood thinners. When purchasing supplements, ensure that they are coming from a reputable source and are made from pure ingredients. If you want to make the most of your pain relief, be sure to adopt a more holistic approach, focusing not only on your medications and supplements, but also on your diet and exercise, and always keep realistic expectations for your joint pain. While these things may help, nothing is a cure-all.

What Foods, Vitamins or Vitamin Supplements Can Cause Sore Joints?
Choose foods wisely if you have joint problems.
Image Credit: Stockbyte/Stockbyte/Getty Images
Arthritis is the most common cause of joint soreness, and supplements or food in your diet may trigger symptoms. However, it’s not the only dietary cause — getting too much of certain nutrients might cause joint pain, too. If you’re experiencing joint pain, discuss any concerns with your health care provider.
Too Much of a Good Thing
You may think that since vitamins are good for you, more is better. This isn’t the case. Taking too many vitamins is not only bad for your health but also your joints. Your body easily eliminates excess water-soluble vitamins like B and C in your urine. However, fat-soluble vitamins and certain minerals aren’t easily eliminated and can accumulate to unhealthy levels if you take too much. For example, too much iron causes joint pain, according to the Arthritis Foundation. Avoid taking more than the recommended daily allowance of any vitamin or mineral.
Foods to Avoid
Inflammation is the root cause of joint pain, so any food that promotes inflammation may trigger symptoms. Some of the most common offenders are foods laden with sugar, saturated fat and artificial flavorings. The typical American diet is also high in vegetable oils, which contain pro-inflammatory omega-6 fats. In addition, common allergens like gluten and casein may trigger symptoms if you’re sensitive to either of these proteins. Gluten is found in any food made from wheat, rye and barley, and casein is a component of dairy. Red meat is another offender to avoid.
The hormone insulin has a significant impact on inflammation in the body, according to an article published in the Spring 2004 issue of the journal Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders. Eating a diet rich in foods that trigger a large spike in insulin promotes inflammation, which is bad news for joints. Examples of high-glycemic foods are white rice, white bread, refined pasta, russet potatoes, flour tortillas, snack chips, pies, cakes and soft drinks.
Soothing Painful Joints
Adopt an anti-inflammatory diet to help fight sore joints. Talk to your doctor about following a low-glycemic diet. Load up on green leafy vegetables and fruits like berries, which are rich in antioxidants that help regulate the body’s inflammatory response. Fatty fish contains anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats that help soothe inflammation, so incorporate it in your weekly meals. Nuts and olive oil also contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats. In addition, coffee is rich in polyphenols, which may protect against inflammation, according to Harvard Health Publications.

- Each of our joints is made up of flexible and strong ligaments that connect bones in pairs.
- The ends of the two bones facing each other are covered with a soft, slightly elastic tissue called cartilage. In some joints that are heavily stressed, such as the knee and elbow, the cartilage is constantly lubricated with synovial fluid.
Joint pain, arthralgia, and arthritis
Pain that appears to be coming from a joint can sometimes occur from structures outside the joint, such as a ligament, tendon, or muscle (tendonitis).
Real joint pain, arthralgia , may be accompanied by joint inflammation, arthritis . The most common symptom of joint inflammation is pain.
An inflamed joint may also be hot and swollen, less often the skin above it may be red.
Arthritis can affect only the joints of the limbs or also the joints of the central part of the skeleton, such as the spine or pelvis. The pain may appear only when the joint is moving or be present at rest.

Which active ingredient should I choose for the treatment of joint pain?
Choose a dietary supplement according to the type of joint pain.
- Chondroitin participates in reduction of joint tissue degeneration . Effective against osteoarthritis pain.Chondroitin sulfate is a molecule naturally produced by the body and found in cartilage and connective tissues (bones, skin, cornea, arterial lining). It is synthesized by the body from glucosamine, which itself is synthesized from fructose-6-phosphate and glutamine. It promotes the formation and maintenance of cartilage and connective tissue (supporting tissues). Chondroitin, as a dietary supplement, can relieve joint pain and even help slow the degeneration of these joint tissues.
- Turmeric: turmeric rhizome soothes inflammation of joints , muscles, tendons, chronic or in case of cramps. Associated with ginger reduces the severity of osteoarthritis and arthritis. The anti-inflammatory effect of turmeric is very important for joint pain such as arthritis and in athletes with tendinitis.
- Glucosamine slows down the wear and tear of cartilage. Helps prevent painful crises. Restores elasticity and strength of joints. Slows down cartilage wear and improves mobility in people with cartilage injuries.
- Harpagophytum relieves pain caused by joint inflammation. The roots of harpagophytum are rich in glucoiridoids, harpagosides and procumbids, which have an undeniable anti-inflammatory and analgesic (analgesic) effect. Studies conducted over several months in patients with osteoarthritis have shown that the consumption of this plant significantly improves the comfort of patients.Joint mobility and flexibility are greatly improved without side effects, especially on the abdomen.

Clinical studies show that it helps slow the progression of osteoarthritis. Concomitant use of glucosamine can enhance this prophylactic effect.
However, since 2012, European health authorities have banned food supplements containing chondroitin from claiming that they support joint mobility, help keep the knees and other joints flexible and flexible, or are an important component of joint or joint metabolism.good joint health. These health claims are now banned.

Precautions for using food additives for joint pain
- According to some studies, glucosamine can cause insulin resistance. Therefore, its use is strongly discouraged for people with diabetes or obesity.
Glucosamine may increase the body’s insulin resistance.Therefore, it is strongly discouraged for people with type 2 diabetes or obesity. Its possible side effects are heartburn and diarrhea. People with asthma or shellfish allergies are sometimes allergic to glucosamine.
Chondroitin Sulfate is not recommended for people with hemophilia or receiving anticoagulant therapy. It is best used under medical supervision. Due to their high sodium content, some chondroitin sulfate foods should not be consumed on a salt-free diet.Its side effects are the same as those of glucosamine.
- However, be wary of conditions such as arthritis, polyarthritis, osteoarthritis of the knee, or osteoporosis that must be treated by a specialist. The same goes for big cartilage problems and, in particular, injections of hyaluronic acid into chondroitin: this should be treated by a doctor.
What are the natural remedies for joint treatment
Exercises for good joint health
Among the preventive and protective habits against joint discomfort, we recommend the practice of adapted and regular physical activity, as well as a balanced diet.
At any age, a joint requires regular mobility to function properly. Therefore, it is imperative to do the appropriate physical exercise, no frills:
- Flexibility and mobility of joints : Exercise twice a week for at least 10 minutes (yoga, stretching).
- Muscle strengthening : Train lower and upper limbs at least twice a week at regular intervals (cycling, aqua gymnastics, Nordic walking, gardening).
- Balance and Coordination : The ability to regularly engage movements that work for your balance (cycling, balancing on one leg, dancing)
- Cardiorespiratory activity : 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity (walking , swimming, cleaning, gardening)
Eat a balanced diet
A balanced diet is needed to prevent overweight , a risk factor for joint problems, and deficiencies in vitamins and minerals necessary for the proper functioning of your joints.
When joint diseases already exist, we use all the resources at our disposal to find solutions. There is no need to look far, our diet is full of nutrients that reduce, in particular, inflammations that cause pain .
Adjust good posture
Change your body position regularly. Avoid sitting, standing, or any other position that overloads the joints for long periods of time, such as long car rides.Avoid kneeling
At rest, bring your joints into a comfortable position: knees and hips extended; it may be more pleasant to lie with your legs bent (lounging chairs). Relaxing painful joints can actually help relieve pain. While sitting, stretch your legs
Avoid overloading the joints , this will only increase the pain. Pain is a sign of joint overload. Do not carry heavy loads
Wear comfortable shoes that support your foot but do not tighten it, such as shoes with elastic laces and thick cushioning soles.Prefer wide and low heels with a beveled heel tip (to facilitate a smooth step).
Avoid shock when walking: use shock absorbers on the heel (silicone heels), have a good insole (sole with plantar arch).

Glucosamine for osteoarthritis | Cochrane
This Cochrane Review summary presents research findings on the effects of glucosamine on the course of osteoarthritis.
People with osteoarthritis take glucosamine:
– May Reduce Pain
– may lead to improved joint function
– Probably no side effects.
What are Osteoarthritis and Glucosamine?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis that affects the joints of the hand, hips, shoulders, and knees.In OA, the cartilage that covers and protects the ends of the bones is damaged, causing pain and swelling. Various medicinal and non-medicinal therapies are used to reduce pain and / or swelling.
Glucosamine is a natural component of the body (organism) in which it is used to build the elements of cartilage. Glucosamine can be taken as a tablet as a food supplement, or sometimes as an injection. It can be in the form of a combination with other supplements (such as chondroitin), or by itself as glucosamine salts (hydrochloride or sulfate).The usual recommended dose is 1500 mg per day or 500 mg three times a day.
In Europe, glucosamine is available by prescription from a healthcare professional. However, in North America, people can buy glucosamine as a dietary supplement without a prescription. This means that glucosamine use is not regulated in North America, and the true amount of glucosamine in a tablet may not match what is indicated on the label.
Best estimate of what happens in about 6 months
Pain: High quality studies showed that pain relief was similar in patients taking glucosamine or placebo (fake empty pills).When all the studies (including low quality and older studies) are considered, glucosamine reduced pain more than placebo.
Patients who took placebo had a pain level of 7 points (on a scale from 0 to 100 points). When glucosamine was taken, pain relief was noted by 10 or more points in comparison with placebo.
In trials that only tested original glucosamine (Rotta) formulations (including low quality studies and older studies), glucosamine resulted in greater improvement in joint function compared to placebo.The subjects who took the placebo had a pain score of 6 points (on a scale from 0 to 20 points). People who took the original glucosamine preparations (Rotta) rated their pain 3 points lower than people who did not take glucosamine.
Function: High quality studies have shown that glucosamine resulted in improved joint function compared to placebo when measuring joint function in one way, but when measured in another way, the effect of glucosamine was comparable to placebo.
In trials that only tested original glucosamine (Rotta) formulations (including low quality studies and older studies), glucosamine resulted in greater improvement in joint function compared to placebo. In persons who took placebo, the functional state of the joints was 22 points (on a scale from 0 to 68 points). In individuals who took the original glucosamine preparations (Rotta), the functional state of the joints was 2 points better than in patients who did not take glucosamine.
There was no difference in the number of people who had side effects. Side effects mainly included dyspepsia and joint pain.
Bones and Joints | EUROAPTIEKA
More and more patients complain of pain in the bones and joints – they are especially unpleasant because they limit the ability to work, interfere with sports, handicraft, garden work, spoil the mood and make you feel not as strong and agile as others.Bone and joint pain, including pain in the spine, affects representatives of a wide variety of professions and age groups, both men and women.
Almost everyone has experienced joint pain at least once in their life. Precisely because many are faced with them, this is often overlooked, although joint pain can be a manifestation of serious rheumatological diseases. Pain is a signal that warns the body that something is threatening, that it is overworked or sick! Very often people self-medicate without realizing the risks associated with it.
In turn, you need to start taking care of bone health when the skeletal system is just beginning to form – for example, in order for a baby to grow healthy teeth and bones, pregnant women should additionally take 1000 to 1500 mg of calcium per day. For children and adolescents during the period of rapid growth, an additional source of calcium is especially necessary. A special dosage form of calcium for children is available in pharmacies, enriched with minerals to strengthen bones and having a pleasant taste.Bones, just like other organs, are alive – cells and salts are exchanged in them throughout life. Therefore, for bone health, as a preventive measure, you need to consume daily calcium-containing foods. For treatment in pharmacies, calcium is available in the form of tablets or powder. Regular intake of calcium ensures healthy bones.
Usually, a person begins to assess his lifestyle and habits when he feels the first health problems or hears the appropriate doctor’s recommendation.In order to avoid unpleasant diseases of the joints, preventive measures are of great importance:
- One of them, especially relevant for those who perform sedentary work, is the correct organization of the workplace: a comfortable chair, a table of the appropriate height, the location of the computer. In addition, a prolonged sitting position must be compensated for by movements. At least once every half hour or hour, you need to get up and walk for a couple of minutes.
- A healthy lifestyle should be maintained (walking in the fresh air, cycling, running, swimming, etc.)e) and observe adequate physical activity. It is recommended to go in for athletics, tennis.
- Physical activity should be regular throughout the year and should not be seasonal.
- The body needs a nutritious and varied diet.
- As a preventive measure, it is recommended to take vitamins, especially of groups B and C. It is best to drink multivitamins, because they contain balanced doses of vitamins.
Excessive and improper daily exercise is another common cause of pain due to human ignorance.In everyday life, the body lacks movement or they are monotonous. In order to find out the real cause of pain, you need to contact your family doctor. Treatment of back pain is complex, therefore the patient should also be actively involved in this process. The complex includes patient education, physiotherapy, sessions with a psychotherapist, drug therapy prescribed by a doctor, as well as massage, which should only be done by a certified specialist. After back surgery, a consultation with a rehabilitation physician is recommended.
Recommendations for strengthening joints:
- Fish oil and fish, which contain omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids, reduce inflammation of the joints, improve the structure of joint tissues, and also act as a prophylactic.
- Glucosamine preparations help to restore the worn-out structure of the articular cartilage, reduce pain in the joints, increase the range of motion and improve the functioning of worn-out joints.
- Inflammation, pain and stiffness in the joints reduce the rose hips.Rose hips are effective because they contain a lot of vitamins and antioxidants, in addition, they have the ability to reduce pain and inflammation. 100 grams of dried rose hips contains half the daily dose of minerals (potassium, magnesium, calcium) and four daily doses of vitamin C.
- Regular exercise and gymnastics will help maintain joint flexibility and increase muscle strength.

How to strengthen joints and ligaments?
Do not think that joints are ideal mechanisms that will work flawlessly all our lives.If you put them under stress, but not strengthen them in any way, then over time, the cartilage will wear off. We should start with what are joints and ligaments?
Ligaments are weakly elastic in their structure and therefore they are often subjected to stretching. They perform a connecting function and connect bones to each other. The joints provide movement of body parts and consist of cartilage tissue with synovial fluid, which fills the cavity of the cartilaginous bag.
The shoulder joints are inherently very vulnerable due to their fragile structure.Joints do not like when they are overstrained or incorrectly loaded, brought to an extreme position, etc. Often joints fail due to prolonged overload. For prevention, it is recommended to adhere to the correct diet, take special supplements, as well as perform a number of physical exercises, and most importantly, always do a warm-up. Now we have drugs that work on the restoration of cartilage surfaces. The diet must necessarily contain vitamins: E, B6 and C, and as for minerals, the diet must contain: magnesium, zinc, selenium and niacin.There are special preparations that include the whole range of vitamins and substances that joints need.
Supplements that strengthen the structure of joints and ligaments:
- Chondroitin and Glucosamine sulfate
- Collagen can be taken as gelatin
- In a bunch of calcium and vitamin D
To strengthen the joints and ligaments, static exercises are necessary – this is when the muscles are in constant long-term tension, while their movement is practically absent.There is also static dynamics – this is when the muscles are tense, but have a small range of motion. The decisive factor here is technique, not weight.
If at the moment you are seriously concerned about the condition of your joints and ligaments, you should also pay special attention to your diet. An urgent need to enrich your diet with foods that strengthen joints, and dishes with them.
