Vitamins & Minerals For Joints

Vitamins & Minerals For Joints

Looking after your joints is vital in order to maintain a healthy active lifestyle, especially in the winter months. Taking proper care of your joints will help prevent injury and enhance flexibility, mobility and strength. So, what do we mean by ‘taking proper care?’. Well, aside from stretching properly before and after exercise, eating a healthy balanced diet, and wearing the correct footwear, the intake of certain vitamins and minerals can also help boost joint health.

Which are best?

MSM, Glucosamine & Chondroitin

MSM, Glucosamine & Chondroitin are the three most prominent compounds found naturally within joints. MSM is the key structural component of cartilage, Chondroitin a strong aspect of connective tissues and Glucosamine a key building block of both cartilage and the connective tissues found in joints. Supplementation three times a day has been found to help relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis

Glucosamine HCL

Glucosamine HCL protects joints by maintaining the health of cartilage – the substance that absorbs and cushions impact from joints. M yvitamins Glucosamine HCL tablets provide 40% more Glucosamine than standard Glucosamine Sulphate and therefore is the highest grade ingredient around – impressive!

MSM

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulphur compound found within the body which is the building block for healthy bones and joints. Natural levels of MSM decrease with age and therefore supplementation is advised for those suffering from joint pain or conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Turmeric

The main compound in turmeric is called curcumin, this substance has been found to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. A study in which part if a group was given a turmeric supplement, another part given turmeric and an arthritis drug, and the third part given just the arthritis drug, showed that the turmeric group showed the most improvement! Other studies have found a 50% reduction in joint pain and stiffness following turmeric supplementation, so try our Wunder Workshop range of Turmeric products – the Turmeric latte tastes amazing!
