The Joint Support category, like the BCAA/Amino category, has not seen much innovation in recent years. Perhaps Joint Support isn’t as exciting as say, pre-workout supplements, but virtually every athlete, bodybuilder, or regular gym-goer will experience some sort of joint-related issues at some point in their life. With a market that big, you would think there would be some more action!
Unfortunately, this is a category still in need of improvement as whole, but we did manage to select a few joint-support supplements that actually get the job done! Here they are…
LEGION FORTIFYFIND IT HERE
Fortify is a breathe of fresh air in the joint-support category, which is full of under-dosed, ineffective products that all basically share the same combination of ingredients. We’re thrilled with the direction Legion went in with Fortify. The formula is simple, yet highly effective, with no questionable or unnecessary ingredients. Just the handful of joint-support ingredients that actually work.
JARROW FORMULAS ULTRA JOINT BUILDERFIND IT HERE
Jarrow is a pretty reputable brand when it comes to single ingredient supplements, so it comes as no surprise that they were able to throw together an effective joint-support formula. Joint Builder is an all-around solid, well-dosed formula worth considering by anyone looking to reduce joint damage and preserve joint health in the long-term. For the price, you can’t beat it.
NUTRABIO EXTREME JOINT CAREFIND IT HERE
Like most NutraBio products we’ve come across, Extreme Joint Care is a no-nonsense, comprehensive formula that contains just about every ingredient that might ease joint pain, reduce inflammation, favorably influence connective tissue health, and preserve joint health in the longterm. If you’re looking for that all-encompassing formula that solves all your joint problems at the same time, look no further.
SNS Joint Support XTFIND IT HERE
Joint Support XT is another example of a brand known for single ingredient supplements successfully creating a multi-ingredient formula with effective ingredients at effective doses. If you’re looking to reduce joint pain, improve flexibility, and encourage favorable joint health in the longterm, SNS Joint Support XT is certainly worth considering.
CHAOS AND PAIN HELIOSFIND IT HERE
What is pariticularly interesting about Helios is that it’s a powder formula. Not that this gives it any sort of advantage over non-powder formulas, but it does make for fully customizable and flexible dosing. The ingredient profile is unique, but doesn’t stray too far off the proven track, with several effective anti-inflammatory and joint-health agents.
