Chronic or acute pain is one of life’s most frustrating and limiting problems. Many people are faced with limited options like long term pain medications, surgery and rehabilitation often with little hope for a pain free life.
There are many natural supplements which may help with the reduction of pain and inflammation. But first, you need to know what the problem is. Once you know what the cause is, you can look into all things that would help, which may include physical therapy, exercise, and diet changes, as well as anti-inflammatory supplements.
Natural anti-inflammatories may relieve inflammation and thereby reduce pain, help to reduce symptoms, improve daily function and allow you to go about your day-to-day activities. They may even prevent some of the long-term complications of chronic inflammation.
These include: Magnesium, Omega-3 fatty acids, Collagen powder, Glucosamine, Chondroitin. Herbs such as Curcumin, Ginger, Devil’s claw, Willowbark, Boswellia, Jamaican Dogwood. Also, collagen powder which can help with pain as well as make cartilage and connective tissue stronger.
Another supplement to highlight is PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide). PEA offers hope for individuals suffering from chronic pain as well as neuropathic pain.
Again, it does depend on the type of pain, whether it is acute or chronic and any other underlying factors contributing to pain. Therefore, it is important to get the right advice on which particular pain-relieving supplement may be of benefit to your particular pain.
