Are there any supplements I should take for my joints?

Some food supplements can have a beneficial effect on joints, reducing inflammation and helping to repair worn out cartilage. Useful supplements include Glucosamine sulphate; this is thought to be effective treatment for osteoarthritis, improving symptoms of pain, joint tenderness and swelling. Fish oils can help to reduce inflammation. Vitamin C makes up collagen, this helps renewal in tendons and bones. Green mussel extract and vitamin E also help reduce inflammation. Talk to your Osteopath/Physiotherapist or Doctor before starting on a course of supplements, as there can be contraindications to taking some.
