What are nutraceuticals, and why are they essential for osteoarthritis patients?

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common degenerative joint disease that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are various treatment approaches aimed at managing its symptoms and improving the quality of life for those affected. One such approach involves the use of nutraceuticals – natural compounds found in certain foods that offer potential therapeutic benefits beyond basic nutrition.

What are the major benefits of the nutraceuticals in osteoarthritis?

Nutraceutical are beneficial in the effective management of osteoarthritis in different ways. They primarily help with; pain management, swelling, strengthening and bone/cartilage formation, repairing the connective tissue and lubricating the joints for better movement.

Nutraceuticals from plant sources:

  1. Turmeric (Curcumin):

Turmeric is a spice commonly used in everyday cooking. It contains a special substance called curcumin, which has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for its ability to reduce inflammation. Numerous studies have found that curcumin extract can help reduce knee pain in people with osteoarthritis. Moreover, clinical trials on turmeric supplements have shown encouraging results in improving pain and function over the long term.

2. Glucosamine:

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance in our body that helps make an important component called glycosaminoglycans, which is crucial for building and repairing cartilage2 in your joints. By maintaining healthy cartilage, it can improve joint health and reduce discomfort for people with knee osteoarthritis. Glucosamine is available in various forms, including sulfate, hydrochloride, and N-acetylglucosamine. Glucosamine sulfate is the most studied form of glucosamine, and there are strong evidences on its effectiveness to alleviate symptoms and support smooth joint movement.

3. Boswellia (Shallaki):

Aflapin is a natural extract from a Boswellia serrata plant that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for a long time due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Additionally, it may also slow down the process of bone loss and help prevent cartilage damage.

4. Ginger extract:

Ginger has impressive anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce swelling and pain around joints. Certain ginger extracts have been found to be effective in reducing joint inflammation in people with osteoarthritis, offering relief similar to steroidal drugs. Clinical studies have shown that ginger extract can significantly reduce osteoarthritis pain, making it a natural option for managing pain without relying on medications.

5. Pepper:

Pepper, another natural ingredient of spices, contains an active ingredient called piperine, which can reduce inflammation and joint pain. Studies have revealed that including pepper in your diet can help manage osteoarthritis symptoms, similar to arthritis medications. Furthermore, adding pepper to your daily meals can enhance the absorption and effectiveness of other natural supplements you take. The piperine in pepper improves the body's ability to absorb nutrients, making it easier for your body to benefit from these natural supplements.

Nutraceuticals obtained from animal sources:

Vitamin D: Helps the body absorb calcium, preventing bone fractures.

Vitamin K2: Works with Vitamin D and calcium to support bone health.

Calcium: Essential for strong bones, muscle function, and hormone regulation.
