Throughout life, both men and women experience normal wear and tear on the joints. To help support optimum joint health, follow an anti-inflammatory diet and consider these dietary supplements:

  1. Evening primrose oil. A source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which may help maintain healthy joints.
  2. Anti-inflammatory herbs. Ginger, holy basil, turmeric, green tea, rosemary, Scutellaria and hu zhang all have naturally occurring compounds that help maintain joint health.
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids. Use varieties that are molecularly distilled from the oil of fish or krill and contain both EPA and DHA, essential fatty acids which have been shown in studies to help maintain bone health and joint flexibility.
