Joint Care Supplements

Most joint pain is caused by damage to connective tissue: ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and joint capsules. Before you consider surgical remedies, recent studies have shown excellent results with natural supplements taken as an arthritis preventive treatment. Whilst these supplements will not reverse damage already done, they have proven effective in reducing the pain and preventing or slowing down further damage.

Joint care supplements work by helping to lubricate the joint and prevent the breakdown of cushioning joint cartilage. There are two primary product ingredients that provide the most effect: glucosamine and chondroitin. These two ingredients can be found in a number of nutritional supplements, depending upon the source:

Regardless of the type or source of glucosamine, chondroitin, any nutritional product should be selected with care. Products which essential change the body at cellular level require FDA approval. Many others, that do not impact the body at cell level are sold without regulation.


How to Select a Top Quality Joint Care Supplement

To ensure that you select the best joint care products available check:

  • the quality of raw materials purchased
  • the level of manufacturing sophistication
  • the purity and potency of dietary supplements that support joint health
  • read labels and seek physician recommendation
  • the product package provides contact information. Contact the manufacturer if you have any questions. Be wary if they don’t supply contact information.

Dietary supplements that support joint health can cost a bit more than other supplements and product quality does vary significantly, so shop carefully and choose a product with confidence.

Quantity of Ingredients

Most studies have shown benefits of glucosamine and chondroitin when used in quantities of 1,500 mg and 1,200 mg respectively. Some studies on chondroitin indicate effectiveness in amounts as small as 800 mg. Choose a product with at least 800 mg of chondroitin.

Quality of Ingredients

Some companies charge less for their product because they purchase cheaper inferior raw materials. Spending less is not good value if the product is ineffective.

Manufacturing Process

Good manufacturing practice incorporate strict quality control systems. This mean they test their raw materials upon receipt, and retest multiple times during the manufacturing process to be sure that the final product contains exactly what is listed on the label. Independent laboratories monitor their facilities and randomly test finished products to a strict quality specification.


Doctor Recommendation

Many physicians are embracing the role of dietary supplements in primary health care. They may be able to guide you to a trusted product and may even have samples or discount coupons. It's always a good practice to consult with your physician before using any dietary supplement, and essential if you are on medications.


Other Joint Care Product Ingredients

Whilst glucosamine and chondroitin are the primary ingredients in joint care formulas, other ingredients also support joint health or work to enhance the assimilation of glucosamine and chondroitin. These include:

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - an organic sulphur essential in the formation of collagen, connective tissue, and healthy joint cartilage.

Boswellia Serrata - also known as Indian frankincense, in combination with other ingredients, can improve joint comfort.
