It is incredibly important to keep your joints and bones healthy. Many people take supplements to help with this, but which are the best products to take?
Here are the most effective supplements you can take each day to help your bones and joints and reduce joint pain and arthritis.
I did a whole article about turmeric and its benefits that you can find a few blog posts back. It contains a compound called curcumin that has anti-inflammatory properties that helps to reduce swelling around joints. Our Royal Turmeric supplement combines curcumin with vitamin C, rosehip, and black pepper to provide you with the nutrients you need to keep your bones and cartilage healthy.
Glucosamine is a natural sugar that exists in the fluid around the joints, as well as in animal bones, and shellfish.
Our supplements can work well for the need of Glucosamine Sulphate. It helps keep the cartilage in your joints healthy and it has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects. Levels of glucosamine decrease we age, so this supplement is particularly important for elderly individuals. You can find our Glucosamine capsules in the Royal Range.
This is usually used with glucosamine to treat osteoarthritis. It can decrease joint pain and help joint mobility. Our BioFlex Advance Liquid contains glucosamine and chondroitin to help the cartilage retain water and keep the joints lubricated.
Collagen is a fibrous protein that connects our tissues such as skin, bone, muscle, cartilage, and tendons. There are several types of collagen. Making up 33% of total proteins, it is the most abundant protein within the body.
Collagen can stimulate the growth of new cartilage tissue. It is present in bones, joints, muscle and other connective tissue. Our BioFlex Advance Liquid contains collagen, and our Royal Opti-Turmeric and Rosehip capsules contain vitamin C that contribute to collagen formation.
5. Omega 3 fatty acids
Found in oily fish or fish oil supplements, omega 3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation and decrease pain and stiffness in those with rheumatoid arthritis. Essential fatty acids must be taken in through the diet either in foods or supplements.
They help keep arteries pliable, decreasing risk of cardiovascular issues and inhibiting blood clots. They help to fight inflammation by regulating the immune system can help to lower bad cholesterol. We have an omega 3 only supplement, or one that combines omega 3, 6, and 9 together into one capsule.
6. Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin made in the skin upon exposure to UV rays in sunlight. It can be found in oily fish, dairy, and fortified cereals. It regulates calcium and bone metabolism, and levels of phosphorous. It contributes to maintenance of healthy bones, teeth, and muscle function.
Lack of vitamin D can lead to bone-related health conditions and increased joint pain. Our vitamin Royal D3Max supplement provides you with the vitamin D you might be lacking, especially if you live in a country that gets low levels of sunlight or if you are from an African, African-Caribbean or south Asian background.
