The 5 supplements I take to reduce joint pain caused by perimenopause.

Hey there, I'm Vanessa and I'm 49 years old. I've been going through perimenopause for a little while now, and let me tell you, it's been quite the ride! I've been dealing with all kinds of symptoms, from hot flashes to mood swings, but the worst one by far has been the joint pain.

It started with a twinge in my hip, but before I knew it, it had turned into a constant ache that kept me up at night. And then, to make matters worse, my knee started swelling up and my range of motion was severely reduced. It was hard for me to keep up with my 11-year-old, who loves playing basketball and exercising with me.

I knew I had to do something about this pain, but I didn't want to rely on prescription painkillers that could potentially have negative side effects. So, I started doing some research and talking to friends who had been through something similar.

That's when I discovered the power of supplements for joint pain relief. I found that taking certain supplements every day could make a big difference in reducing my pain and inflammation, allowing me to be more active and enjoy my time with my son even more.

Here are the 5 supplements that I take every day to help with my joint pain:

  1. Natural Vitality Anti-Stress Supplement - Raspberry Flavored Powder: This magnesium supplement not only helps reduce stress and anxiety, but it's also great for supporting healthy bones and muscles. It's been a game-changer for me in terms of reducing my hip pain.

  2. Vitamatic Glucosamine and Chondroitin Gummies with Vitamin D: These gummies taste amazing and are packed with ingredients that support joint health, including glucosamine, chondroitin, and vitamin D. Plus, they're easy to take and don't upset my stomach.

  3. Methyl Complete by HormoneSynergy - Methylation Support: This super B-complex supplement is essential for supporting healthy methylation, which is important for overall joint health. It's helped reduce the swelling in my knee and improve my overall range of motion.

  4. Fish Oil Omega 3 Supplements: Fish oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory and has been shown to help reduce joint pain and stiffness. I take these softgels every day and have noticed a significant improvement in my joint pain.

  5. NatureWise Curcuminoids with BioPerine for Cardiovascular and Joint Support: This turmeric supplement contains a high concentration of curcuminoids, which are known for their powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It's been especially helpful in reducing the swelling in my knee.

Since I've started taking these supplements, I've noticed a significant reduction in joint pain and inflammation. While they may not work for everyone, I highly recommend giving them a try if you're struggling with joint pain during perimenopause. As always, be sure to consult with your doctor before starting any new supplements.
