People have been asking what they can take for joint pain.

I noticed that most of them choose an external rub-on ointments such as bio- freeze or cbd. Those may be temporary relief but really not getting to the root cause.
One of the things I use for myself is a collagen powder.  Right now I am using Great Lakes product. A couple scoops in the morning and i am ready to go.

What is collagen?

Collagen or proteins in the body that play a connective role in the skin/, bones and tissue. Collagen has been shown to help with skin and gut health, decrease aches and pains, improve bone density and health, as well as decreased inflammation.
The good news is we can get this in are foods such as meats, eggs, beans, Citrus fruits, Bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli and leafy green vegetables.


So my recommendation is go within with proper foods and a collagen supplement instead of putting on the stinky creams.

Eat This

  • Oily fish
    contain lots of healthful omega-3 fatty acids. These polyunsaturated fats have anti-inflammatory properties so they may benefit people with osteoarthritis.
  • Dark leafy greens
    are rich in Vitamin D and stress-fighting phytochemicals and antioxidants. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption and can also boost the immune system, helping the body to fight off infection.
  • Nuts
    are good for the heart and contain high levels of calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin E, and fiber. They also contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which boosts the immune system.

Not This

  • Sugar
    Processed sugars can prompt the release of cytokines, which act as inflammatory messengers in the body. The sugars that manufacturers add to sweetened beverages, including soda, sweet tea, flavored coffees, and some juice drinks, are the most likely to worsen inflammatory conditions.
  • Saturated fat
    Foods high in saturated fat, such as pizza and red meat, can cause inflammation in the fat tissue. As well as contributing to the risk of developing obesity, heart disease, and other conditions, this can make arthritis inflammation worse.
  • Refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, white rice, and potato chips, fuel the production of advanced glycation end (AGE) oxidants. These can stimulate inflammation in the body.
