Nutritional vitamins and supplements contain natural substances that produce health benefits. At Comprehensive Arthritis Care, the rheumatic disease specialists have years of experience with all types of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, so they’re able to customize nutritional vitamins and supplements for your needs.
A wide array of specific nutritional vitamins and supplements can help patients with arthritis get the most from their overall treatment plan. Studies show that certain supplements may help with arthritis symptoms.
The team may recommend one or more of the following vitamins and supplements:
Antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E may help improve arthritis symptoms while promoting good overall health. Vitamins D and K can help if you need help with bone strengthening or lack healthy cartilage, both of which can be problems for people with arthritis.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are found in cartilage, the material that protects your bones. Supplementing with glucosamine and chondroitin may help you move better and experience less pain.
Fatty acids found in fish can help reduce inflammation, so they’re especially helpful for patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
SAM-e is a naturally-occurring substance with anti-inflammatory properties and pain-relieving effects. People with osteoarthritis experience cartilage loss, which continues steadily without treatment. SAM-e can help protect the cartilage you have left.
Curcumin comes from turmeric. It’s a potent anti-inflammatory agent that works by blocking an enzyme that stimulates inflammation in the body. Studies show that it can help with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
There are other vitamins and supplements that might help you better cope with arthritis symptoms like pain, stiffness, and swelling.
Each vitamin and supplement has its own dosage protocols. The Comprehensive Arthritis Care team gives you detailed instructions regarding how and when to take your vitamins and supplements. Don’t forget to take your regular arthritis medications as directed. Vitamins and supplements are complementary treatments but not a replacement.
