Bones and Joints
Strengthen your bones and prevent joint pain with our collection of supplements for bone and joint health, all containing key nutrients to keep you flexible and mobile.
In order to keep your bones and joints healthy, you’ll want to ensure that you have a calcium-rich diet, sourced from dairy products, almonds or super greens like broccoli and kale. Vitamin D is also crucial as it helps to regulate the amount of calcium in your body. As well as your diet, your lifestyle makes a difference too; physical activity, whether a daily walk or more intense workout, can help to build strong bones and strengthen the muscles around your joints.
There are a number of nutrients that can help to relieve pain in your joints. Glucosamine can help to slow down cartilage loss, omega-3 can ease stiffness, and turmeric can block proteins that cause inflammation. People with low levels of vitamin D have also been shown to report higher levels of chronic pain, so supplements may even help to prevent joint pain. All of these vitamins and supplements work best alongside a healthy diet.
Bone density naturally changes over time but there are ways to boost it. Strength training can help to promote bone growth and reduce inflammation, as can a nut and vegetable-rich diet due to the calcium, omega 3, vitamins and nutrients that these foods naturally contain. Protein also plays a key role in maintaining healthy bones, so supplementing your diet with protein powder can benefit bone mineral density.
