The Best Supplements for Pain, Inflammation, and Recovery

Many patients ask us about what else they can do at home to help relieve their pain. Particularly those with more chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis. Taking supplements is one option you could explore.


We recommend supplements from Biomedica Nutraceuticals. They are strictly practitioner only, so you know you are taking a high quality product. They are more bioavailable than most products you would find off the shelf, meaning that more of the active ingredient is absorbed by the body and therefore it is more effective. As a result, it only takes as little as 2-3 weeks before you start noticing the effects of the supplements, rather than having to wait for months.


Keep reading to find out more about some of our most recommended products for joint pain, arthritis, anti-inflammatory, and anti-ageing effects.


Mag Duo


Magnesium plays a vital role in many functions of the human body. Whilst it is possible to obtain magnesium through your diet, the typical western diet is unlikely to provide the amount required. Magnesium supplementation will correct any deficiencies as well as provide other therapeutic benefits. Magnesium can reduce the perception of pain in the brain, providing a pain relieving effect.


There are a wide variety of magnesium supplements out there, however they are not all equal! Mag Duo is a simple magnesium powder for broad application. It is a bioavailable citrate and glycinate dual formula, meaning it is well absorbed and tolerated by the body. It comes in powder form.

Numerous studies have found that the organic forms of magnesium such as citrate and glycinate are absorbed more efficiently in the digestive tract. They are also more bioavailable. This means that more magnesium reaches your circulation and can therefore be used by the body, compared to inorganic salts such as magnesium oxide. Poor quality magnesium supplements can lead to uncomfortable side effects.


What are the benefits of using Mag Duo?

  • Assists with production of neurotransmitters

  • Maintains general health and wellbeing

  • Prevents magnesium deficiency

  • Supports energy levels

  • Maintains healthy nerve transmission

  • Supports health sleep

  • Supports nervous system function

  • Assists with the metabolism of protein, fats, and carbohydrates

  • Promotes muscle relaxation

  • Supports bone health



Bioflam


Bioflam is a comprehensive anti-inflammatory and antioxidant formulation. It contains a unique turmeric concentrate. Research has found that turmeric is similarly as effective and safe when compared to taking ibuprofen for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.

What are the benefits of using Bioflam?

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Antioxidant formulation to help reduce free radical damage to body cells

  • Bioflavonoids, copper, and Vitamins C and E support healthy blood vessels

  • Vitamin C and copper support collagen and connective tissue formation, and support healthy joint cartilage production

Supplements for arthritis

Collagen Matrix


Collagen Matrix is a vegetarian collagen for joint cartilage and connective tissue.


Collagen is the primary structural protein in connective tissue, which provides strength and support to bone, ligaments, tendons, skin, cartilage and blood vessel walls. It is also involved in cell growth, wound healing, and has anti-inflammatory actions.


Collagen is a well tolerated nutritional supplement that helps to support joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness, while also improving skin and reducing signs of ageing.


Collagen Matrix contains a vegetarian collagen powder, obtained from the inner membrane lining the shell of an egg. Eggshell membrane powder helps relieve the symptoms of mild arthritis in individuals over the age of 65, including mild joint pain and stiffness.


What are the benefits of using Collagen Matrix?


  • Promotes healthy joint function

  • Assists connective tissue formation

  • Supports healthy joint cartilage production

  • Contains Vitamin C which supports collagen formation, skin health, and joint cartilage health

  • Antioxidant


Collagen Matrix is taken as a capsule. Take one capsule daily with water.



Silicium


Silicium is another great supplement that can be taken together with Collagen Matrix, to help relieve mild joint pain and stiffness. It contains silicon in the form of Monomethylsilanetriol (MMST), micro encapsulated in acacia gum for superior absorption and bioavailability.


Silicon is an essential mineral for bone and connective tissue health. It is involved in the formation and repair of connective tissue. It is also essential for the formation of collagen. Research has revealed a strong link between silicon deficiency and decreased cartilage in joints, as well as bone deformities.


There are several studies exploring the effect of silicon supplementation for osteoarthritis. It has been found to reduce symptoms of knee osteoarthritis including pain, stiffness, as well as increasing physical function. Positive effects on hair, skin and nails have also been found in numerous clinical trials.


Silicium is taken as a powder which is highly soluble and flavour-free. This product is also vegan.
