ARTHRITIS SUPPLEMENTS

Arthritis supplements can greatly ease the pain and inflammation of arthritis.  Glucosamine and chondroitin is the best natural arthritis medicine currently available. These are components of normal cartilage in the body and stimulate the body to make more cartilage. Some people, however, are not helped by these supplements and if after three months there is no improvement it is recommended to discontinue use.

There also may be an herbal treatment for arthritis. Some of the herbs used in the treatment of arthritis contain anti-inflammatory properties which can greatly help.

Turmeric contains a component known as curcumin. Curcumin is a body cleanser due to its content of omega fatty acids. It has anti-inflammatory properties which can treat the symptoms of inflammation and pain.

 Ginger also has potent anti-inflammatory properties and also has omega fatty acids.  People on blood thinning medications should check with a physician prior to using ginger. Ginger may interfere with these medications.

 Guggul is an herb that contains natural cleansing properties that can remove toxins and fats from the body. It also has fracture healing properties which can speed up the recuperation rate from osteoporosis bone injuries.

  Boswelia is another herb that may also help to rebuild the cartilages. This herb is more potent than the glucosamines.  Boswellia has anti-inflammatory components that help to prevent inflammatory white cells from infiltrating damaged tissue. It also improves blood circulation to the joints.
