Arthritis is a debilitating joint disorder featuring severe inflammation of one or more joints. There are more than a hundred types of arthritis, caused by age, trauma to a joint, infection, or autoimmune action. Regardless of type, arthritis sufferers share some common symptoms, the worst of these being pain, stiffness and swelling. Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the USA, with the potential to severely limit functioning and quality of life.
The great news is that a number of natural substances have shown major promise in helping sufferers of arthritis manage arthritis symptoms and improve joint health.
NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel: 19,000mg/90 VegeCaps
Green lipped mussels contain a high level of Omega-3 fatty acids, making it a very effective natural anti-inflammatory supplement, which in turn helps with pain management and mobility in general! The shellfish also contains chondroitin, a building block of healthy joints. Studies have shown that chondroitin sulphate is as effective for osteoarthritis pain as anti-inflammatory drugs. Plus it contains Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that reduces oxidative damage.
NutriNZ Joint Vitality Formula: 60 VegeCaps

It includes Turmeric/Curcumin extract to help relieve inflammation, Manganese & Vitamin D for relaxing muscles and healthy bones, and Grapeseed extract for pain relief.
Research has shown that sufferers of autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis can be successfully treated using the immunoglobulins in colostrum. MIP Colostrum is a rich, undiluted source of immunoglobulin IgG – 18-22% by weight. MIP Colostrum soothes pain and swelling in affected joints as it naturally combats inflammation. Additionally, it protects and heals the gut which is a major boost to those who use NSAIDs (non-steroidal pain relief).
NutriNZ MIP Day Boost: 300g Powder Blend
MIP Day Boost is a rich source of Colostrum, which has been scientifically proven to relieve the symptoms of arthritis due largely to its anti-inflammatory properties. The vitamins and minerals that are found in MIP Day Boost will boost your overall body and mind function as a bonus.
NutriNZ Maxi OMEGA-3 Plus: 60 SoftGel Caps
Maxi OMEGA-3 Plus is a powerful remedy against joint immobility, pain and stiffness - and is a natural treatment against arthritis.

Research supports the use of the phospholipid content of krill oil to maintain joint activity and to provide needed nourishment. Another interesting fact is that the hyaluronic acid in krill oil helps keep tendons and muscles flexible and even helps repair broken bones and joints.
