joint supplement

There are a million supplements out there and there are a 999,995 BS supplements that don't have quality ingredients or have the recommended dosages of ingredients to be effective. Because of all the poor quality supplements out there, it's important to know what can and how much can actually help you. When it comes to knowing what to take that can help with your neuro-muscular-skeletal aches and pain, we're here to provide you with quality information. 

We love Amazon. We know how easy it is to find things like supplements and get them delivered, however, there are too many BS supplements out there that promote things that won't actually happen and then you waste your time and money. This blog will help what you can take to help your joint pain and how much. We'll even attach our favorite brands in the links below.


A joint supplement is a mix of ingredients that help with the maintenance and integrity of joint cartilage and the reduction of joint inflammatory markers. The most common ingredients one will find in a joint supplement include Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM. There are additional supplements that help like omega-3s, curcumin, Boswellia, and turmeric.

The easiest way to describe what these do is they help keep the joints hydrated and lubricated. They help keep the door hinge from getting rusty and/or help add WD-40 to the joint. 

Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM are the most common, and all aid in the production and retention of hydration in joint cartilage. They can also help with the reduction of inflammatory markers.

These are the joint supplement world Big 3. The LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh of joint supplement ingredients. But that's not all. You need to also find a supplement that will have them in the appropriate dosages as well. Below you will find the recommended amounts.

  • Glucosamine: equal to or greater than 1,500mg a day
  • Chondroitin: >1,000mg a day
  • MSM: >1,000mg a day

 Now most supplements have some additive ingredients, however, as long as you stick to those three basic ingredients, then you are ahead of the game. There is no doubt taking fish oils, Vitamin D, Bosewealia, curcumin, and turmeric can all help, however, you need those 3 for the biggest bang for your buck. 

Remember, this is a supplement and will not be a magic pill. It takes consistently taking it for 1-3 months before you really notice a difference in those daily aches and pains. Athletes should be taking this because of how active they are as well. 

P.S. Tumeric is quite overrated in today's society as the amount one would need to consume to have a decent effect would be a very high amount combined with a quality diet that also includes turmeric in it. So unless you live, breathe, and die turmeric, then don't go spending the extra money just because one supplement has turmeric and the other doesn't.
