Are Supplements Helpful For Reducing Joint Pain?

Joint pain is classifiable by two distinct categories, inflammatory or non-inflammatory. If it is the latter, the medical name for it is arthralgia. Alternately, inflammatory joint distress is usually due to injury or arthritis. Rarer, however, are a whole list of conditions including bursitis, gout, Lyme disease, viral infections, hepatitis, lupus and more. Only a doctor can make the correct diagnosis and decide if supplements will help.

Sometimes, taking a supplement can take away that achy stiffness that many people experience while other supplemental vitamins seem to stave off the beginnings of arthritic tenderness. However, taking the wrong kind of supplement or the wrong amount can do more harm than good. Moreover, mixing any over-the-counter treatment with prescriptive medications can have dire consequences.

Supplements for joint pain include vitamins, minerals, herbs and over-the-counter medicines. None of these products is guaranteed to work for every person because each body reacts differently and many factors play a part in creating pain. However, some of the best supplements that are recognized by alternative medicine health practitioners to fight joint inflammation and pain are:

• Vitamin B6 - Deficient levels of vitamin B6 causes higher degrees of arthritic swelling, which leads to more joint destruction. Sadly, this inflammation helps drain a person's body of its storage of B6.

• Vitamin D - Research shows that lower than normal levels of vitamin D is directly linked to rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.

• Vitamin D3 - Researchers recently made a distinction between two forms of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is normally made by the body when a person is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D3 is now available in capsule and tablet form, and it is showing remarkable results at restoring bone density when it is taken with calcium.

• Ginger - Dried ginger in capsules brings relief to painful joints in arthritis sufferers. Asian, Japanese and Chinese doctors have used this as a remedy for swelling for hundreds of years.

• Omega-3 - These fatty acids are the same as is found in fish, especially fatty fish like salmon, tuna and sardines. Omega-3 has many advantageous properties but being the building blocks for joint cells is one of the most crucial. Furthermore, omega-3 fatty acids diminish the inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Numerous studies confirm that Omega-3 reduces morning stiffness and relieves joints that hurt when taken as a fish oil supplement.

• Turmeric - Amazingly, this plant appears to be even more effective at preventing inflammation than reducing it once it has begun. It is traditionally used in Chinese and Indian medicine to heal persons with arthritis. In addition, it appears to perform as well as a relatively large dose of Ibuprofen to lessen the aches and swelling from arthritis.

• Green Tea - Medical studies illustrate that green tea not only aids in relieving throbbing joints, but it also slows cartilage breakdown. For people who do not care to drink green tea, it can be found in capsule form at health food and nutritional supplement stores.

• Devil's Claw - Used in South Africa to treat sore joints, devil's claw is an herb that seemingly works as well as Ibuprofen for limiting tissue inflammation. In one related study, more than 200 people who were suffering from painful joints were given devil's claw extract for two months. After that period, 70 percent of the patients regained mobility, flexibility and felt less pain.

Thankfully, there are options available to treat joint aches, pains and swelling and it can be an economical answer as well. Visiting a health professional is important, however, so that tests such as x-rays, blood tests and a verbal assessment can be made before trying supplemental alternatives. Only a skilled practitioner can recommend the right supplements and amounts for the best results.
