What supplement is good for joints?

Joints—the parts of the body where two or more bones meet—are important to our health and mobility. Doing weight-bearing exercise and stretching regularly are two research-backed ways to help keep joints healthy and strong. There are also some joint support supplements that have been shown to help promote healthy joints. Here are two of the most popular.

- Collagen: The most abundant protein in the body, it gives joints structure and plays a critical role in strength and flexibility. Collagen types 1 & 2 are the most important for joint health support.*

- Hyaluronic acid (HA): An essential molecule that helps bind water to cells in the body, providing cellular hydration and lubrication to both skin and joints.*

You can find these ingredients in standalone supplements as well as formulas that combine both both collagen and hyaluronic acid.

What type of collagen is best for joints?

Collagen types 1 and 2 are the most beneficial types of collagen for joint support. As with all types of collagen, our bodies make both naturally, but your body makes less starting in your 20s. You can up your intake by eating healthy proteins, including bone-in meat and fish and bone broth, and by taking supplements.

Collagen type 1 comprises approximately 90% of the total collagen in your body. Found primarily in your skin, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments and bones, it works by strengthening the foundational matrices of each.

Though somewhat less prevalent, collagen type 2 plays an essential role in how the skeletal system functions. As the main component of cartilage, it’s essential for joint health. Collagen type 2 is particularly important for active people, as well as for movement and mobility as we age.

When you’re trying to find the best joint supplements, one thing to look for is collagen that’s hydrolyzed, or broken into smaller bits that are easier for the body to absorb.*

Does collagen help support joint health?

Collagen is a protein that occurs naturally in many parts of the body, skin and joints included. But as we age, our natural ability to make it slows down, which can contribute to common signs of aging that show up in the skin and other collagen-rich parts of the body, like joints. Research suggests that supplementing with collagen supports overall joint health.

That’s why many people turn to collagen for joints, and to generally support healthy collagen formation, as they get older. For joint health, there are two key types of collagen to look for.

Collagen type 1 makes up almost 90% of the collagen in the body. It forms the underlying matrix of skin, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments and bones. Collagen type 2 is a key structural component in cartilage, the connective tissue that supports our joints and allows them to move freely.*

Does cartilage contain collagen?
Yes. Cartilage is a strong but flexible connective tissue that protects your joints and bones and allows them to move freely. Think of it as a sort of shock absorber and friction reducer for your entire body. Collagen, specifically type 2 collagen, is the key structural protein in cartilage.*
Do collagen supplements support cartilage?
As mentioned above, cartilage contains type 2 collagen. In fact, it’s the main structural protein in cartilage. Supplementing with hydrolyzed collagen type 2 can promote healthy collagen formation throughout the body and support cartilage, even as we age.*
Does hyaluronic acid help support joints?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a humectant—a substance that retains moisture—that’s found naturally in the skin, eyes and joints and throughout the human body. Deemed “nature’s great moisturizer,” HA is often included in skin care products and supplements to support skin hydration at the cellular level.*
Is type 2 collagen good for joints?
Type 2 collagen is an essential protein found naturally in cartilage, the connective tissue that cushions and supports joints. As with collagen types 1 & 3, our bodies produce it on their own, but your body makes less starting in your 20s. Taking a supplement that provides type 2 collagen (like NeoCell Joint Complex) can support healthy collagen formation, providing our bodies with some of the structural proteins needed to promote joint and cartilage health.*
How do joint supplements work?

Supplements like collagen for joints are a good way to support joint health as part of an overall wellness routine. Taking joint support supplements regularly will help keep joints healthy, so you can stay active and enjoy the activities you love.

Collagen supplements specifically help to promote healthy collagen formation bodywide, including in your joints. This is important because as you age, your body produces less and less collagen, a type of protein that’s essential for your joints, along with your skin, hair and nails.*

How long does it take joint supplements to work?
Everyone—and every body—is different, so the best way to get the most from any supplement is to take it as directed. There are many types of joint supplements and they all work a little bit differently. In terms of collagen, we recommend taking it daily.
What do joint supplements do?

Supplements are one way to help support healthy joints as part of your overall wellness routine. Some other steps you can take to promote overall joint health include exercising and stretching regularly, adding anti-inflammatory foods to your diet, maintaining a healthy weight and staying hydrated.

As you get older, your body goes through a lot of changes that affect everything from your skin to your sleep quality to your joint health and mobility. To use collagen as an example, the natural collagen production in your body starts to decline sometime in your 20s. Studies have shown that adding a hydrolyzed collagen supplement to your daily self-care routine is a great way to support your body’s ability to keep producing collagen. That in turn helps support healthy skin, hair, nails and joints.*

Why should I take a joint supplement?

You might not think much about your joints unless you start experiencing pain or discomfort in them, but joints are critical for your overall wellness and mobility. The older you get, the more prone they are to wear and tear. The good news is that there are supplements you can take to help support healthy joints as you age including our favorite, collagen.

While it’s possible to get your collagen intake from animal-based food sources like bone broth, beef, chicken, eggs and fish, the amount of collagen they provide isn’t always consistent. That’s where getting additional collagen for dietary supplements comes in. Taking a hydrolyzed collagen supplement like Super Collagen is a convenient way to promote continued healthy collagen production in your body and support joint health.*

Do collagen peptides help support joints?
Collagen’s main job is maintaining the structural integrity of your body to help keep you strong and flexible. Research shows that taking collagen peptides (also known as hydrolyzed collagen) can help provide your body with some of the building blocks it needs to keep making collagen, even as you get older. When your body is better able to make the collagen it needs, that helps promote healthy joints—and skin, hair and nails.*
How much collagen should I take for joints?
To support healthy joints as part of your overall wellness, we recommend taking collagen daily. Collagen supplements vary in daily serving size from just a few grams to upwards of 30 to 40 grams. Always check the label of your supplement for suggested use and consult with a doctor or healthcare professional before starting any new dietary supplements.*
Where is collagen found in the body?
Collagen is a structural protein that is found throughout the body. It forms the underlying matrix of your skin, hair, nails, muscles, bones, ligaments, joints and other connective tissues. It's also found in your organs, blood vessels and intestinal lining.*
