Joint & Bone Health Supplements
Thanks to the joints, our skeleton is not a rigid structure and it allows us to walk, run, and move. This mobility is possible due to two elements: cartilage, which is the smooth, slippery and very resistant surface in the opposite of bones, and synovial fluid, responsible for providing nutrients to the cartilage and lubricating it to allow the joint to play with minimal friction.
[showhide type=”post” more_text=”Show more text” less_text=”Hide text”]
However, ageing, being overweight, and unhealthy lifestyle habits can take their toll on our joints. The synovial fluid is no longer rich in nutrients and loses its effect, so the cartilage can progressively deteriorate until it disappears and leaves a joint where the bones brusquely rub against each other. That is what we call osteoarthritis.
To prevent this wear and tear of our joints, first of all, we must not overload them, maintain a healthy weight and substitute impact sports such as running or tennis with others such as cycling or swimming.
On the other hand, we can include supplements in the diet that will help us improve the quality of the synovial fluid and the condition of the cartilage.
“Shark cartilage” was used in the beginning, but today our knowledge of components with a beneficial effect on the joints and their appropriate doses is greater than ever, and we can improve our joints’ health more easily than ever.
The best bone health supplements should include

Chondroitin sulfate
It is an important component of cartilage, which helps in its construction and repair. It is found naturally in the body, but its amount can decrease as we age.
Glucosamine sulfate
It is similar to the previous one, and in fact, both of them are usually combined in a prolonged and uninterrupted way. Scientific studies have shown that they ease pain in damaged joints.
It is generally extracted from an animal or shark cartilage, so despite a very “chemical” name, it is natural. Although it is very safe, pregnant or lactating women, children, and patients taking blood-thinning medications should all avoid it.
Hyaluronic acid
It is a substance that is found naturally in our body, for example in the cartilage or the skin itself (hence why it is famous in aesthetic medicine). Over the years, the presence of this substance decreases considerably, so that, when it is reintroduced, it produces great results.
