Chronically painful, achy, swollen joints can make day-to-day life a struggle, and we want to help.
We regularly talk to our customers about the top nutrients and herbs which can be helpful, alongside support for other body systems which can have a knock-on impact on our joint health, namely the state of our gut, nervous system, and immunity. Clearly a healthy lifestyle, movement, strength training & stretching, avoiding inflammatory and increasing the amount of anti-inflammatory foods all are important. For some additional support to boost all of those activities, our expert nutritionists would recommend the following nutritional supplements to be added to your joint health schedule:
Glucosamine is a key component of complex molecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are crucial building blocks of cartilage. Cartilage is a type of connective tissue within joints, which helps to facilitate movement and protect joints from ‘wear and tear’.
Vitamin C contributes to the formation of collagen, the main protein present in cartilage and bone. It therefore contributes to the normal function of these tissues, as well as gums, skin, and teeth.
Zinc and manganese work in synergy with vitamin C. Zinc supports protein synthesis, and manganese contributes to the formation of connective tissue. Both of these minerals also contribute to the maintenance of bone structure. Zinc, vitamin C, and manganese all protect cells from oxidative stress, which can otherwise degenerate their structure and function.
Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development and contribute to a normal heart function*. Your body cannot produce them, hence the necessity to obtain omega-3 through food. It is very important though to get the balance right between omega-3 and omega-6. The Mediterranean diet - emphasising on fish, vegetables, olive oil, garlic and fresh fruit - does it much better than a traditional western diet, that can contain 10-25x more omega-6 than omega-3, which in turn can lead to high levels of inflammation and other negative effects.
Glucosamine Hydrochloride provides a good level of glucosamine in the well-absorbed, well-tolerated hydrochloride form, alongside vitamin C and magnesium. Magnesium works synergistically by contributing to normal protein synthesis and bones, while vitamin C supports collagen formation. The glucosamine is from a non-shellfish source, which allows this product to be vegetarian and suitable for those with a shellfish allergy. This product has been tested by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) who have approved it for use by professional sports people and enabled it to obtain the Informed Sport accreditation.
MicroCell® Curcumin Plus is a potent combination of plant nutrients, including curcumin (from turmeric) and ginger, alongside ursolic acid from sage and pine bark extract. These potent phytonutrients are delivered in a micellised form to increase the absorption and effectiveness of these nutrients. All of the ingredients are vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Nutrisorb® Liquid Zinc Plus Ascorbate is a highly absorbable, liquid zinc combined with vitamin C which can be taken under the tongue or in drinks. Zinc and vitamin C are antioxidants that contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Mega EPA is a high potency fish oil capsule providing omega-3 fatty acids in a natural triglyceride form, naturally concentrated using NEO-3™ - a unique lipase enzyme process which results in a fish oil of outstanding quality and high potency. Mega EPA is ideal for daily use and can also be used during pregnancy. By adding sweet orange oil the capsules come with any fishy taste or smell.
