If you are one of the people who has been taking Calcium and Vitamin D supplements in the hopes of reducing joint pain, WebMD has bad news for you. Unfortunately, a recent study has shown that supplements offer no significant reduction in pain symptoms, or swelling, at all.

The study took place over the course of two years. The findings were published in The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Of course, there are other reasons why Calcium and Vitamin D supplements are good for your health. For example, WebMD was quick to point out that the study “did not contradict current recommendations for Vitamin D intakes for bone health and fracture-risk reduction.” Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.

It’s simply that the supplements won’t do much to relieve your pain, either over the long term or the short term. That may be a bit of a disappointment if you suffer from joint pain and were hoping for a safe alternative to Tylenol, Advil, or any other over-the-counter painkiller.

Fortunately, Bio-Scriptives can offer you just such an alternative.
