Anti inflammatory supplements like these can help to relieve the pain in your joints and also address some of the issues that have created this problem.

MSM has many other applications, but MSM for joint pain is probably what its best known for.


Anti Inflammatory Supplements

MSM Supplements are known for their beneficial effect on reducing joint pain.  MSM contains sulfur and sulfur helps to relieve pain as well as the inflammation.

The sulfur volume of cartilage reduces as you age and this is a major cause of degeneration in your joints.

It's believed that because MSM contains sulfur which is a vital element in the make up of almost all connective tissue - MSM will help to repair damaged connective tissue in your joints.

Inflammation is usually associated with the pain and stiffness of joint problems such as arthritis and muscle pain.

Most people have a tendency to take anti inflammatory drugs such as aspirin to temporarily deal with this discomfort.

In the end, these types of drugs will probably create even more health problems.

Taking healthier anti inflammatory supplements like MSM for joint pain will help to reduce the pain and stiffness.

Along with the inflammation by supporting your body with tissue repair.  Which is probably the most effective way to deal with this problem.

Organic Glucosamine is an amino sugar that plays an essential role in building your cartilage which helps to cushion your joints.

Glucosamine also helps sulfur to be incorporated into cartilage which is why lots of joint formulas include Glucosamine along with MSM for joint pain.

Organic glucosamine has a number of studies to back its effectiveness as a treatment for osteoarthritis. 

Glucosamine can also be found in broths made from healthy bones - which come from organic grass fed animals.

SAM-e is made from the amino acid methionine and ATP.  Although, it's best known as a remedy for depression, it can also deal with moderate amounts of pain relief for osteoarthritis.

Studies have shown that SAM-e can provide pain relief and improve joint function.  SAM-e has been used for over 20 years in Europe as a prescription treatment for arthritis and depression. 

SAM-e is also a key player in your liver's biochemistry. 

Your liver will contain the third highest amount of SAM-e in your body where it can transform itself into glutathione - the master antioxidant.

It appears that SAM-e is the liver's super nutrient!  Nothing may come close to providing the same health benefits that SAM-e will provide for your liver.

Be sure you buy a reputable brand of SAM-e.  Also, check with your doctor before taking this supplement if you need more information.

Essential Fatty Acids most importantly the omega 3s are important in the battle against inflammation. 

Omega 3s encourage your body to make the chemicals that will help to control inflammation.  And I would suggest supplementing with a good quality cod liver oil over fish pills to increase your omega 3s.

Or better yet, consume wild caught salmon and other cold water fish which are some of the best sources of omega 3 essential fatty acids. 

Currently, it's been estimated that the SAD (Standard American Diet) has an imbalanced ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 which comes out to about 15 to 1 in favor of omega 6.

Which means that you may only be getting 7% of the omega 3s that you should be and that's a problem because omega 6 is connected with joint issues and increased inflammation.

This also means that you will have to cut down on your consumption of omega 6 fatty acids and increase consumption of omega 3s because these essential fatty acids will compete with each other.
