Arthritis symptoms can include joint pain, stiffness and restricted movement.
The painful condition affects about 10 million people in the UK.
Painkillers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are both used to ease arthritis symptoms, according to the NHS.
But, you could prevent joint pain by taking these three daily supplements.
Osteoarthritis patients would benefit most from taking capsaicin supplements.
“Capsaicin temporarily reduces substance P, a pain transmitter,” said the Arthritis Foundation.
“Its pain-relieving properties have been shown in many studies, including a 2010 study published in Phytotherapy Research, which revealed a 50 per cent reduction in joint pain after three weeks of use. It is available as a topical cream, gel or patch.”
Capsaicin supplements – sometimes known as cayenne powder – is available from £4.21.
Turmeric contains the chemical curcumin, which helps to relieve joint pain and swelling.
Curcumin works by blocking inflammatory cytokines and enzymes.
Both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis patients would benefit from taking the supplements.
Two months-worth of turmeric can be bought for £6.71.
Ginger extracts have anti-inflammatory properties, nutritionists have claimed.
Taking certain doses four times a day could reduce knee arthritis pain after three months, studies have reported.
A specialised ginger extract reduced inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis patients as effective as steroids did, according to a 2012 study.
Ginger supplements would benefit both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis patients, and they can be bought for £4.99.
