Buyer's Guide: The best joint support products

Playing sports, running and just getting older puts a strain on our joints that we begin to feel in our knees, wrists and other joints. Fortunately, there are several supplements that approach this normal wear and tear from different angles to help us get back in the game. 


Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate

You've undoubtedly heard about this "dynamic duo." Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are the building blocks of glycosaminoglycans. They help cushion and lubricate the joints. Although they have no direct anti-inflammatory effect and no immediate pain-relieving effect, they can get to the root of the problem.* 

Many studies have shown 1,500 mg of glucosamine and 1,200 mg of chondroitin (5:4 ratio) to be effective. In one 212 person study, even 1,500 mg of glucosamine taken alone daily showed dramatic results.* Results take about 8 weeks to appear.

Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM

Three premier ingredients are combined for advanced joint support.* 

Lindberg combines three remarkable compounds into one advanced formula to maximize joint health. First, we start with Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfates, which are the building blocks of healthy joints and tissues.* To reduce unwanted sodium, our glucosamine is potassium stabilized.

Then we complement this extraordinary formula with MSM. MSM is a source of sulfur, one of the most abundant minerals in our joints and connective tissues.*

In four capsules, we combine D-glucosamine sulfate 2KCl (1,500 mg) and chondroitin sulfate (1,200 mg) in the ratio that has been extensively studied. Plus, we add 1,000 mg of MSM, making it one of the most comprehensive joint formulas available.*  Take 4 daily.

Four Capsules Contain: 
1,500 mg D-Glucosamine Sulfate 2KCl
1,200 mg Chondroitin Sulfate
1,000 mg MSM

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is simply a nutritional form of sulfur, a necessary mineral found in food like eggs. It acts by donating sulfur for the maintenance of healthy connective tissue.* You'll have to experiment with what dose works for you. A good prevention and maintenance dose is at least 1 gram a day.

One double-blind study showed excellent results with 2-3 grams a day. Yet, a famous movie actor needed to take over 12 grams a day to help deal with his more serious joint problems. MSM may cause some flatulence when you first begin using higher doses, so build your dose slowly to get your body used to it. By the way, MSM is also great for hair, skin and nails.*

UltraJoint — all-in-one formula      

This comprehensive triple-action formula includes the core ingredients glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM along with curcumin (turmeric). Turmeric contains curcuminoids, which impact a key mediator involved in joint comfort.* Regular turmeric is not well absorbed by the body so we use a special form that has proven results.

These curcuminoids are bound with a phosphatidyl complex to increase the absorption of curcuminoids by nearly 30 fold. A clinical study showed those with joint issues had a 58% change in symptom scores after three months of use.* 

We also include a proprietary blend of botanicals that work on multiple enzymes for rapid and long-lasting joint comfort. It’s included for its studied effects on joint mobility and stiffness.* Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme from pineapple that works through a series of chemical reactions in the body to support additional joint benefits.* And Boswellia serrata gum extract supports additional joint benefits through its work on leukotrienes.*

These additional ingredients support joint comfort and healthy inflammation response after vigorous exercise.*

Turmeric Curcumin

Turmeric Curcumin Extract is a patented, standardized extract containing 95% curcuminoids from turmeric (not genetically engineered). We use Curcumin C3 Complex®, the leading, patented brand used in over 45 clinical studies at universities and research centers worldwide. It's much more potent than the usual 2-3% curcuminoid level in regular turmeric powder.*

Curcuminoids support joint comfort and a healthy inflammation response after vigorous exercise.* Turmeric is also being researched for its effects on brain, heart, liver and circulatory system health.* Added BioPerine® black pepper extract helps promote absorption.*  Take 1-2 tablets or capsules daily.

Collagen (Type I & III)

Collagen is a building block for muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, bones and skin.* Type I and III collagen comprise the majority of the collagen in your body. They are essential for active muscles, durable ligaments and tendons, mobile joints, sturdy bones and healthy skin.* 

Collagen peptides fit perfectly into a paleo or keto nutrition plan and can help you boost your amino acid intake.*

Collagen is sugar free, fat free, unflavored, unsweetened, gluten free, lactose free, soy free which is great news for those with food sensitivities. This premium-grade collagen peptide formula stirs instantly in hot and warm liquids like water, coffee, sports drinks or smoothies.  Try Fitness Labs PeptiFit Collagen Peptides

It promotes active joints and youthful looking skin, supports joint comfort and increases skin collagen.*  Try Lindberg BioCell Collagen




Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid (also called Hyaluronan or HA) is a gel-like substance present in every tissue of the body. Its most important biological role is the retention of water. It also carries nutrients and eliminates waste from structures of the body, such as cartilage, that do not have a direct blood supply. Without adequate HA, the body's most important connective structures can break down.*

The highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid are found in the joints, heart valves and eyes. As an important component of synovial fluid, hyaluronic acid helps lubricate and cushion the joints.* Supplementation is especially helpful as the body's level of hyaluronic acid production decreases with age.* Try Lindberg Hyaluronic Acid
