Nutritional supplements can support bone and joint health by replacing some of the proteins and minerals that diminish in our joints with age. Chondroitin is one of those proteins, and may be useful for cartilage production. The recommended daily intake is 800-1000mg of chondroitin sulphate. Also look for supplements containing calcium and vitamin D. Calcium is essential for hardening and regrowth of bones. Vitamin D is necessary for calcium absorption, so both are required for healthy bones. Most of the body's vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight. Fish oils and evening primrose oil have lubricating properties that may help support joint comfort and morning stiffness. Magnesium also helps the body absorb and regulate calcium levels.
