Supplement Needs recognises that poor joint health can affect anyone - from seasoned bodybuilders and athletes through to weekend warriors and the average person in the street. 

That’s why we’ve developed a series of special supplements that are designed to support optimal musculoskeletal health. 

Arguably at the ‘pinnacle’ of our joint supplements is the Supplement Needs Joint Stack. Researched and formulated by Dr. Dean St Mart PhD, the Supplement Needs Joint Stack presents a carefully curated 16 ingredient formula (of which 4 are trademarked proprietary ingredients). 

Joint Stack has been designed to include ingredients that have been shown in studies to improve cartilage and joint collagen. Other ingredients contribute towards reduced inflammation such as Curcuprime which is a powerful antioxidant. 

Other joint supplements you’ll find here at Supplement Needs include our ever popular Supplement Needs Liposomal Curcumin with Resveratrol. Studies have shown Curcumin to have several potential benefits, including helping the body to tackle oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation. A study in BMC also found that curcumin can potentially help alleviate osteoarthritis pain. 

Supplement Needs’ joint health collection also includes our Glucosamine & Chondroitin supplement. Given that Glucosamine and Chondroitin are constituent components of cartilage, you can imagine how important this supplement can be for joint health…

Glucosamine acts as the building block for molecules called glycosaminoglycans, whilst Chondroitin is the component of cartilage that helps it to resist compression (for example impacts whilst playing sports). 

The Supplement Needs Glucosamine & Chondroitin supplement has been formulated by Dr. Dean St Mart PhD using 500 mg of Glucosamine Sulphate to yield 296 mg Glucosamine, and 400mg Marine Chondroitin Sulphate to yield 360 mg Chondroitin. 

Should you take joint supplements? 

Whilst joint supplements are commonly associated with athletes or the elderly, everyone can potentially benefit from adding a joint supplement to their diet. 


Because, like the rest of your body, your skeleton is a living system. Made predominantly from collagen (along with a mineral called phosphate), your skeleton must constantly renew itself. Thus, it can potentially benefit from your body being ‘topped up’ with the vitamins and minerals it needs to sustain itself. 

What supplements are good for joints? 

As you’ve just read, your musculoskeletal system is a living system that requires certain vitamins and minerals to function properly and replenish itself. 

Thus, it follows that it can be worthwhile ensuring that your body isn’t deficient in any of those important nutrients. 

Among those important nutrients are; Glucosamine and Chondroitin, Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids, Curcumin and vitamins and minerals - particularly, Vitamins C, D and K (Vitamins D and K have been shown to be important for bone health). 

What to look for in a joint supplement

If you’re reading this then you’ll already be aware that there are hundreds (perhaps even thousands) of joint supplements available online and in the shops. 

So, how can you tell them apart? And, what makes a good joint supplement? The following points can help you sort quality supplements out from the rest: 

  • Manufactured to GMP and ISO standards. A quality supplement will be manufactured in a facility which adheres to these stringent quality and safety standards. All Supplement Needs products are manufactured to these standards.

  • Formulated by experts. Quality joint supplements are formulated by credentialed, knowledgeable experts. Here at Supplement Needs all our products have been formulated by Dr. Dean St Mart PhD who holds a double first class honours degree in chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry and a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry and fluorescence spectroscopy.

  • Transparently dosed. The best supplements are completely transparent - not merely about what ingredients they contain, but the dosage of those ingredients. All Supplement Needs products are 100% transparent.

  • Price. There’s a lot that goes into creating a quality joint supplement. Years of study. Months and years of testing and formulation. The sourcing of the highest-quality ingredients. The cost of safe and healthy manufacture. A true good-quality supplement should never be ‘cheap’. If you think a joint supplement is too cheap to be true, walk away!
