What is tendinitis?

Tendinitis refers to inflammation of tendons (the tissue that connect muscle to bone) caused by overuse, injury, or related rheumatic conditions. Tendinitis produces pain and tenderness and may restrict the movement of joints.

Tendons can become inflamed when overstressed by any activity, but the most common cause by far is repetitive stress, which occurs when you use the same joint for the same stressful movement over a long period. This can happen in sports, but also in many types of office work and other situations.

Recommended supplements to heal tendinitis

Vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C

Taking a vitamin C supplement is important, since vitamin C plays a major role in the prevention and repair of injuries. Deficiency of vitamin C is associated with defective formation and maintenance of tendon and bursal tissues. In addition to vitamin C, vitamin A and zinc are important not only for their wound-healing properties but also for their antioxidant effects.

Omega 3

Omega 3 fatty acids are also famous for their anti-inflammatory properties. To benefit from them, the simpler solution is to take Fish oil supplements. See dosage below.

Dosage

  • Vitamin C: 500 to 1,000 mg one to three times per day
  • Vitamin D3: 2,000 to 4,000 IU per day (ideally, measure blood levels and adjust dosage accordingly)
  • Fish oils: 3,000 mg EPA + DHA per day until symptoms resolve, then 1,000 mg EPA + DHA per day thereafter
