It’s important to maintain healthy joints and muscles throughout our lives. We’re often good at encouraging children to eat food high in calcium and protein to help their bones and muscles to develop well. However, as we get older and our bodies stop growing, we sometimes believe it’s no longer important to care for our muscles and bones, but the maintenance of our joints and muscles is more important than ever. Being aware of vitamins and supplements help you to move easily, exercise freely and live comfortably throughout your life and into old age. Caring for our bodies should always be a priority, no matter how young or old you are.
It can be difficult to know what vitamin or supplement for joint pain and muscle support is best for you. We have a huge range of products that cover everything from the well known vitamins — such as calcium, magnesium and glucosamine sulphate — to the lesser-known like rosehip extract, krill oil and vitamin K2.

Supplements for Joints and Muscles
Supplements have a range of benefits for your whole body. A single supplement can affect your digestive system, immune system and the health of your joints and muscles. This enables easy movement, makes exercise more comfortable and helps you recover more quickly from exercise, damage or strain. Maintaining the health of joints and muscles, as well as the connective tissue between them, is essential to keeping you moving throughout your life.
Supplements that are specifically designed for joint or muscle support provide targeted care, which means they’re much more likely to be effective than other options. All the products on this page provide specific and targeted care for your muscles, your joints or both. Amongst our range of products, we offer joint support complex capsules that are designed to provide the best care for all-round joint health.
Why do joints ache or feel painful?
There are a huge number of reasons why your joint, such as a knee or elbow, could feel painful. Many are associated with getting older, although this doesn’t mean you have to accept pain as part of your daily life. Health supplements, such as fish oil, can target the source of your pain, strengthening your joint and allowing you to move freely.
Reasons for joint pain could include:
- Inflammation (from overwork or strain)
- Muscle weakness (lack of support for your joint)
There are numerous other reasons why your joints could be hurting. If you’re concerned, you should always see a doctor and receive expert medical help.
Joint Pain Relief
Always talk to a doctor about joint pain, particularly if it you’re concerned that it might be something particularly serious, such as osteoarthritis, or if you’ve been suffering for a long time. While a doctor’s treatment will always be tailored specifically to you, common advice includes exercise and using health supplements. For instance, swimming is a very popular choice for strengthening the muscles that surround your joints. When these muscles become weak, your joint, such as your knee, doesn’t get the support it needs. This means that it can become inflamed or painful. Swimming, a low impact exercise, can strengthen your muscles and joints without causing further inflammation or strain.
Working supplements into your daily routine alongside exercise can have a number of benefits. Joints often become weak or painful when you lack a certain vitamin or nutrient. Using a health supplement gives extra support to your body, allowing you to recover from pain or to increase the mobility of your joint more quickly than with exercise alone.
Glucosamine is found naturally in your body. It has many functions, including the creation of glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins. Simply, these are the foundations that make many parts of your joints, including the ligaments, tendons, synovial fluid (that allows the joint to move smoothly) and cartilage. These parts of your joint all play their own individual and vital roles. It means that the way they’re built as you grow, and the way they’re maintained, impacts the ease of your joint movement for the rest of your life. A deficiency in glucosamine while you’re growing could lead to fragile joints that are prone to pain and it has been suggested that it can impact the development of osteoarthritis.
Glucosamine sulphate has a huge impact upon your body. It not only is a material used in the creation of joints, but also acts as a biological signal, telling your body to repair the joint and to minimise inflammation. Glucosamine also slows the breakdown of cartilage and encourages your body to repair cartilage damage.
If you suffer from joint pain, glucosamine can give your body the support and boost it needs to recover and allow you to move freely and comfortably.
Fish Oil for Joints
Fish oil, such as krill oil or cod liver oil, is made up of omega-3 fatty acids. These are proven to have anti-inflammatory properties and studies have shown that there are many benefits to your joints. Healthline even called it a ‘weapon against arthritis’.This is because the compounds it contains that reduce swelling and inflammation, as well as potential slight immunosuppressant qualities, can help your body cope and respond positively to the challenges of arthritis. It can reduce pain and keep you moving.
If your joints or muscles are stiff and painful, or if you simply want to give your joints more support as you get older, then a health supplement could provide the perfect solution.
