Understanding the Different Types of PureBulk Joint Care Supplements

Taking care of your joints is crucial for long-term independence and quality of life as we age. Many people enjoy running, hiking, and high-impact sports in their youth, but these activities contribute to joint wear and tear over time. Warming up, cooling down, and stretching properly after physically demanding activities can help prevent the worst of the damage, but nutrition is just as important for preserving joint integrity.

Several health supplements can help support joint structure and function. Taking joint supplements as a preventative care method can help proactively maintain joint health as we age or engage in activities that affect joint function. For individuals already struggling with joint pain, supplements can help manage discomfort and promote a healthier inflammatory response. PureBulk carries a large selection of joint health supplements to help protect, preserve, and soothe joints.

  • Collagen. Collagen is a crucial protein that forms the structural foundation of joints, providing tensile strength to cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Supplementation enhances joint flexibility and resilience. PureBulk carries three collagen supplements: Bovine, Fish, and Chicken Hydrolyzed Collage Powder. [1 - 4]
  • Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a source of sulfur, an essential component for collagen and joint tissue formation. It alleviates joint discomfort by combating oxidative stress, reducing inflammation, and interrupting the pain response in nerve fibers. [5, 6]
  • Chondroitin Sulfate. Chondroitin Sulfate is a significant component of cartilage and stimulates hyaluronic acid production. It provides joint elasticity, lubrication, and compression resistance. It reduces inflammation and supports joint function by inhibiting enzymes that break down cartilage. [7 - 10]
  • Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a significant component of the synovial fluid that lubricates joints, reduces friction, and supports joint flexibility. Hyaluronic acid supplements enhance joint hydration and compression resistance. It synergizes with glucosamine and chondroitin by complementing their roles in joint health. While glucosamine and chondroitin support the structural integrity and lubrication of joints, hyaluronic acid enhances this synergy by providing additional joint hydration. PureBulk’s Hyaluronic Acid Powder is vegan and wheat-free. [11 - 15]
  • Resveratrol. Resveratrol is a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. It supports joint health by protecting against free radical damage. It also helps reduce inflammation and prevents cartilage breakdown—a significant contributing factor to joint pain. PureBulk carries Trans-Resveratrol Powder Pure and Trans-Resveratrol Powder 50%. [16 - 18]
  • Grape seed extract. Grape Seed Extract is rich in antioxidants that protect joint tissues from oxidative damage. It also exhibits anti-inflammatory effects that support joint comfort and function. [19 - 21]
  • L-Proline. L-Proline is an amino acid that helps synthesize collagen to enhance joints’ structural integrity and support cartilage health. [22 - 24]
  • Curcumin. Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric. It has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help manage joint inflammation and alleviate joint discomfort. PureBulk carries Curcumin 95% Natural Turmeric Extract and Curcumin 95% Natural Turmeric Extract Softgels. [25 - 28]
  • L-Threonine. L-Threonine is an essential amino acid that supports collagen production. It is crucial for joint structural integrity and connective tissue synthesis. [29, 30]
  • Glucosamine. Glucosamine is a building block for cartilage. It supports cartilage repair, reduces inflammation, and improves joint mobility. D-Glucosamine HCl Powder (Shellfish), D-Glucosamine Sulfate 2KCl Powder, and D-Glucosamine HCl Powder (Vegan). [31 - 34]
  • S-Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe). SAMe supports joint health by stimulating cartilage production, reducing inflammation, and improving joint stiffness. Several studies show that SAMe supplements are just as effective at relieving joint pain as traditional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) without the typical NSAID side effects. [35 - 38]
  • L-Histidine. Histidine is an amino acid that helps manage inflammation. It supports joint health by regulating immune responses and histamine levels. While histamine is crucial for mounting effective immune responses, an overactive or dysregulated histamine release can contribute to chronic inflammation and joint discomfort. PureBulk carries L-Histidine HCl and L-Histidine Base. [39 - 41]
  • Cissus quadrangularis. Cissus Quadrangularis Extract Powder has potent anti-inflammatory properties. It supports joint health by reducing inflammation, promoting collagen synthesis, and enhancing bone health. Research shows that cissus quadrangularis is beneficial for athletes, as it significantly reduces joint pain following exercise. [42 - 44]
  • Glycine. Glycine is a crucial amino acid for synthesizing collagen, a major component of joint tissues. Supporting collagen production helps maintain and repair joints by regenerating cartilage. [45, 46]
  • Benfotiamine (fat-soluble vitamin B1). Benfotiamine Powder is a fat-soluble form of vitamin B1. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that support joint health by reducing inflammation and countering oxidative stress. It also inhibits advanced glycation end product (AGE) formation. AGEs contribute to joint degeneration and stiffness. Preventing their formation helps maintain joint structure integrity. [47 - 49]
  • Vitamin B3. Niacin (vitamin B3) is critical for collagen production and supports connective tissue maintenance. Research shows that vitamin B3 has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce joint inflammation and improve joint mobility. PureBulk carries Niacinamide Powder (Vitamin B3) and Niacin (Vitamin B3) Immediate Release. [50, 51]
  • Bromelain. Bromelain is an enzyme derived from pineapples with anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It supports joint health by reducing swelling and joint discomfort. [52, 53]
  • Chaga mushroom extract. Chaga Mushroom Extract supports joint health through its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is rich in bioactive compounds like polysaccharides and polyphenols that help reduce inflammation in the joints to alleviate pain and discomfort. Additionally, its antioxidant content helps combat oxidative stress, which can damage joints and cause inflammation. [54, 55]
  • Pine bark extract. Pine Bark Extract contains an abundance of proanthocyanidins, an antioxidant compound with anti-inflammatory properties. These antioxidants help reduce oxidative stress in joints and protect them radical damage. These mechanisms alleviate inflammation and support joint comfort. [56 - 58]
  • Rutin. Rutin is a flavonoid and potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. It eases joint discomfort by suppressing the release and production of pro-inflammatory compounds. Both actions work together to help keep inflammation in check. [59, 60]
  • Fish oil. Fish Oil SoftgelsFish Oil Softgels are an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. Omega-3s exert potent anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting leukotriene synthesis. Leukotrienes contribute significantly to chronic inflammatory joint conditions by attracting and activating immune cells. Fish oil helps manage joint inflammation and pain by blocking these inflammatory mediators. [61 - 63]
  • Calcium. Calcium is essential for bone health, and strong bones contribute to overall joint stability and function. PureBulk carries several calcium supplements: calcium carbonate (mineral) powder, calcium citrate (USA) powder, calcium pyruvate powder, coral calcium powder (Okinawa), calcium gluconate (USA), calcium d-glucarate, and calcium lactate gluconate. PureBulk also carries three calcium blends: calcium ascorbate powder (calcium salt combined with vitamin C), dicalcium phosphate (DCP), and tricalcium phosphate (TCP). DCP and TCP contain calcium and phosphorus. [64, 65]
  • Vitamin D. Vitamin D is crucial for calcium absorption and bone health. It supports joint health by contributing to bone density and overall joint stability. PureBulk carries Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) Powder and Vitamin D3 5000IU Olive Oil (Soy Free) Softgels. [66 - 68]
  • Vitamin D3 + K2. Taking vitamin D with vitamin K supports joint health in several ways. Vitamin D3 facilitates calcium absorption, while vitamin K regulates its distribution, directing it to the bones and teeth. These vitamins work synergistically to prevent calcium buildup in soft tissues, including joints. Together, they support proper calcium utilization, contributing to joint stability, flexibility, and overall skeletal health. PureBulk carries Vitamin D3 + Vitamin K2 MCT Oil (Soy Free) Softgels.
