Summary of Bone and joint health

Primary Information, Benefits, Effects, and Important Facts

Supplements that affect bone health may do so by altering bone mass and integrity. These supplements may influence the strength of bones and the susceptibility to fracturing by acting as essential parts of bone, such as calcium; playing a part in mineralization, such as vitamin K; or preventing bone loss.

Supplements that affect joint health may do so by influencing the structure and function of joint cartilage or alleviating joint pain. This may be due to effects on cartilage synthesis or addressing low-grade inflammation, pain, swelling, and stiffness.
