Mineral Supplements May Help Fight Arthritis Pain

Posted on February 16, 2016 by Disability Help Group

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that in the United States, there are an estimated 46 million adults diagnosed with some form of arthritis. The most common types of arthritis include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis;
  • Gout;
  • Lupus-related arthritis; and
  • Fibromyalgia.

Arthritis can lead to a great deal of pain and suffering. For some patients it requires a lengthy period of time away from work. Long-term disability benefits can help supplement income while you undergo treatment.

Researchers have found a link between mineral supplements and reducing arthritis pain. In fact, it has been found that mineral deficiency may increase symptoms of arthritis. Arthritis and joint pain can be reduced by taking the right minerals.

Listed below are some of the recommended types of mineral supplements:

  • Manganese;
  • Copper;
  • Selenium (particularly for rheumatoid arthritis); and
  • Mineral complexes.

Arthritis can be a debilitating condition that may leave you unable to work. If you or someone you love suffers from arthritis or any other serious physical or mental condition that makes it impossible for you to earn a living, you may qualify for long-term disability benefits.
