Mineral supplements ease joint pain

PhotobucketGlucosamine has become a common alternative to those suffering from degenerative joint disease, Osteoarthritis (OA), but is the subject of serious debate whether it truly works or not.

OA is a slow, destructive joint disease, that affects millions of people all over the world. The exact cause of the condition is unknown but the degeneration starts when the joints face unusually high stress and then the secondary inflammation sets in with continued pressure on the area.

Recent findings have shown that perhaps yet another pain reliever could come in the shape of seaweed.

Using rats in test trials, a study showed that a lack of magnesium in their diets reflected an increased amount of cartilage damage. By upping the levels of magnesium, the inflammation is reduced. Other trace elements like copper, zinc, selenium, boron and manganese also aid in diminishing the symptoms of OA.

This research was designed to see if seaweed-derived multi-mineral supplement, Aquamin, could alleviate OA symptoms. Aquamin comes from a red algae that is rich in calcium, magnesium and a variety of other trace minerals.
