6 types of joint supplements Everything You Want to Know About Joint Supplements
1. Glucosamine/chondroitin

Your body naturally produces glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate. You’ll often find them in the same supplement because they’re both structural components of cartilage. Glucosamine/chondroitin are considered safe and studies indicate they may support your joints and tissue repair.[2] [3]
2. Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are great for your brain and body, and research shows that omega-3s can even reduce morning stiffness and tender joints.[4] [5] Fish oil, krill oil and cod liver oil are all rich sources of EPA and DHA — two omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to help manage inflammation.[6] Bulletproof Omega Krill Complex gives you clinically-backed doses of EPA and DHA, plus GLA, astaxanthin and olive fruit extract for extra antioxidant benefits.

3. DMSO and MSM

Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) are chemicals that may help manage inflammation and reduce pain. DMSO and MSM are generally considered safe, but your results may vary. Some small studies have found that MSM helps improve symptoms of joint pain.[7] [8] However, a 2011 meta-analysis found that DMSO and MSM did not significantly reduce osteoarthritis joint pain in comparison to a placebo.[9]
4. Curcumin

You might be familiar with the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric, a vibrant yellow spice. Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric, and studies have shown that curcumin naturally supports your body’s inflammatory response.[10] [11] [12] Bulletproof Curcumin Max also contains stephania, ginger and boswellia, three clinically studied Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs that work together to support your joints and mobility.
5. SAMe

S-Adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe) is a molecule naturally produced by your body. As a supplement, it has been studied as a way to manage depression, liver disease and osteoarthritis. Research shows that SAMe has anti-inflammatory properties, and it may help rebuild cartilage.[13] [14] It’s generally considered safe, but there isn’t enough compelling evidence to say that it’s an effective way to treat joint pain conditions.[15] There’s a chance it can interact with other medications, so talk to your doctor before you try it.
6. Collagen protein
Collagen is often called the glue that holds your body together, and with good reason: It’s the connective tissue in structures like your skin, hair, nails and bones. Your body naturally produces collagen protein, but production slows down as you age. A collagen protein supplement can help give your body the tools it needs to build everything from connective tissue to tendons — and keep your joints happy.

Bulletproof Collagen Protein powder is an easy-to-use powder that supports flexible joints and strong bones, and you can add it to almost anything, like coffee and smoothies. Want a punch of berry flavor, plus targeted support? Try Collagen Protein Joint Boost. It tastes like blueberry acai, but combines all the benefits of collagen, glucosamine and chondroitin in one delicious scoop.
