Best vitamins and minerals to relieve joint pain: Which ones really help?

A chronic inflammatory disorder which mainly affects the joints — Arthritis usually starts in the middle age and is common in old people. Undergoing timely treatment, patients are more likely to lead an active life.

There are certain supplements which are effective in controlling pain, swelling and alleviating the damage caused to the joints. Including these vitamins and minerals in your diet can help you in improving your condition.

Glucosamine

A supplement which helps your joints in moving better, Glucosamine occurs naturally in the fluid around the joints, in animal bones, bone marrow, shellfish, and fungi. It is mainly consumed in three forms— glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride and N-acetyl-glucosamine.

Chondroitin Sulfate

Keeping a check on the progression of osteoarthritis, Chondroitin Sulfate is effective in lowering arthritis pain and inflammation, say health experts. It helps in keeping your cartilage healthy, which makes it one of the most commonly used dietary supplements for the treatment of osteoarthritis.

SAM-e

Health experts recommend S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM-e) as it helps in producing and regulating hormones along with maintaining cell membranes. It is a compound found naturally in the body. Various studies have shown that it provides pain relief, improvement in joint function, and produces a very few side effects.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Well-known for their anti-inflammatory properties, Omega-3 Fatty Acids are effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and other inflammatory conditions. They can help the patients with rheumatoid arthritis in lowering their dose of corticosteroids or NSAIDs.

MSM

Various medical studies show that Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) has a major impact on knee osteoarthritis. It is basically a naturally occurring form of sulphur which helps in supporting the body’s muscles and tendons.

Vitamin C

The antioxidant vitamin C plays a major role in building connective tissue in the body. As per various medical studies, the people with adequate amount of Vitamin C in their diet are three times less likely to suffer from arthritis.
