Food supplements for tendinitis and joint discomfort

We all have joint pain and discomfort, young or old, athletes or sedentary! Wear of cartilage (knee in particular), trauma (ankle, shoulder, elbow), tendinitis, back pain, painful ankles, handling heavy loads, non-optimal postures (back pain, osteoarthritis), joint pain significantly reduces our impact. quality of life by limiting mobility. For this type of pathologies, even a balanced diet will not be enough. Conversely, regular taking of anti-inflammatory medications is not a long-lasting solution, with many side effects impacting our daily health. Stimium therefore offers a range of food supplements treating joint pain, for athletes and non-athletes alike.

Stimium Joint Flex with a completely unique formula glucosamine, chondroitin, L-methionine, vitamin C, ginger, turmeric, hyaluronic acid, manganese and collagen helps fight against inflammation in order to relieve joints, tendon, connective tissues, osteoarthritis by regenerating in particular the cartilage.

To complete our nutrition offering, we have released Kolaflex, a supplement for athletes based on marine collagen from France, natural vitamin C and Magnesium, developed and manufactured as always in France. With this product, the objective is to relieve inflammatory reactions, tendinopathy and painful joints, with a healthy and highly bioavailable product.


Being in good health, whether you are athletic or sedentary, means taking care of your mental health but also of your physical health and in particular “mechanical” health, that is to say our osteoarticular system. This therefore presupposes being able to adopt a healthy lifestyle, with a balanced diet to which we can add nutritional supplements to improve well-being and regain real freedom of movement. Discover the food supplements from Laboratoires Stimium to help you relieve your pain.

Did you know that our body has more than 400 bones whose connections are made possible by joints. All of this internal mechanics allows our limbs to move, to perform movements controlled by our brain. Our joints are partly made up of cartilage: it is this which suffers from wear, from less optimal regeneration over time or quite simply from diseases, deteriorating, and causing pain, joint discomfort limiting the functioning of the joint. our joints.. The composition of cartilage is now well known: collagen fibers for resistance, hyaluronic acid for elasticity and what we call proteoglycans (glucosamine and chondroitin) which will serve to control and limit the deformation of the cartilage. The production of these components decreases with age, explaining the increasing fragility of joints with aging and the frequency of osteoarthritis.

We often tend to become aware of the importance of our joints when pain appears (stuck back, stubborn knee, painful shoulder, grinding ankle, etc.). However, this should be a daily concern because joint health is a guarantee of comfort of life, well-being and for athletes, performance.


The equation is relatively simple, our bones support our body, which associated with our muscles, facilitate our movements, thanks to the joints, the area where two bones join, which are used with each movement of our body. To avoid friction and wear of these extremities, an entire protection system contributes to adequate hydration and lubrication, allowing movement and different ranges of movement. We very often make the analogy with car parts, which, like us, deserve maintenance and attention. But this equation, valid for most of us at birth, is no longer entirely valid due to several events that will accompany us throughout our lives, notably aging, possible excess weight, a more sedentary lifestyle, nutrient deficiencies (minerals or vitamins), intense sporting activity, etc.

We talk about a joint but this word actually refers to several elements of our body and in particular (1) the ligaments which connect the bones together, (2) the cartilage, a smooth and elastic connective tissue which covers the ends of the bones, protects them and facilitates movements, and finally (3) the synovial membrane, concerning the most mobile joints (knee, elbow for example) which secretes a viscous liquid, the synovium, in order to absorb shocks, limit friction and therefore cartilage wear. It is mainly these 3 elements which will be at the origin of so-called joint pain.

Joint discomfort affects more than 1 in 5 French people and even affects 3 in 4 French people over 65, particularly with the appearance of osteoarthritis due to a reduction in physical activity. Joint discomfort will very often be linked to the joint itself, the cause of which will generally be inflammation of the joint or quite simply, wear and tear. GOOD

The health of our joints depends greatly on a protein, collagen, and synovial fluid, both of which ensure their lubrication and elasticity. Particularly as we age, we produce less and less and the ends of the bones, under the effect of friction, begin to deteriorate. The cartilage is damaged and can cause discomfort, inflammation and ultimately pain.


Drawing on the extensive experience of our teams in rheumatology, we have created a specific range of food supplements dedicated to joints, cartilage and bone. Loss of mobility, discomfort, swelling... these signs are sometimes burdensome on a daily basis. Solutions exist to regain comfort and joint mobility. Appropriate nutrition can help regain better joint function.

Joint Flex capsules have been specially designed to support joints and cartilage, taken regularly as a maintenance treatment. They contain glucosamine, precursor of chondroitin, for maintaining the integrity of cartilage and chondroitin acting synergistically in inflammation problems, vitamin C and L-methionine to support hydration and joint lubrication. , ginger, a totally natural food for joint mobility and to avoid morning stiffness, turmeric, a plant with multiple virtues, having the effect of maintaining good joint flexibility, hyaluronic acid for joint mobility, highly bioavailable manganese in Amino-chelated form to support connective tissues and contribute to the maintenance of normal bones, and finally collagen, the protein naturally present in joints, bones and tendons. These active ingredients will act on cartilaginous or tendon areas to soothe joints and tendons.

Some people may have more interest in using food supplements, in particular people over 60 with more "worn" joints or athletes, generally subject to intense training causing more shock to the muscle fibers and joints. joints. We then always come back to the notion of balance. If physical activity is recommended to maintain good health, on the contrary, excessive regular sporting activity will necessarily wear out the joints following repeated stresses (tendinitis of the shoulder or elbow in tennis players, knees in runners or footballers, ankles in handball players, achilles tendons in jumpers, etc.). With a product like Kolaflex, the body will start making its own collagen again from the collagen peptides included in the product.

To help relieve joint discomfort, Omega 3 generally give excellent results.

To help with heavy legs and circulatory problems, the gingko biloba still remains the number 1 product today.

For a muscle relaxant, that is to say for people suffering from tense muscles (very often in the back), the GABA is definitely an option to consider to quickly relieve your aches.


There is obviously no miracle recipe but rather good habits to put in place, the first of which is quite simple: you have to move! It is absolutely necessary to combat a sedentary lifestyle to reduce pain, at the risk of entering a vicious circle and no longer walking or cycling due to pain (particularly in the back for example), which will get worse if the level of mobility and physical activity is further reduced. Thus, playing sports or any other activity that requires working your muscles and items allows you to maintain and maintain your joint health. When a joint no longer functions, the cartilage is no longer irrigated and lubricated, quickly degrading the joints (a bit like a plane that no longer flies, it will wear out more quickly!).

Using your muscles and joints gently and regularly helps maintain good cartilage health, but not only that. Physical activity, and even simple walking, has the effect of strengthening muscle tone, and preventing the wasting of muscles, which are essential for supporting joints and accompanying joint movement.

A 2nd A fairly simple reflex consists of eating a balanced diet simply to avoid being overweight, which will wear out the cartilage in the joints even more prematurely. For example by eating vegetables every day because they are rich in alkaline minerals which promote better bone health. More generally by adopting a varied diet to provide all kinds of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids) in order to stay at a healthy weight. A healthy lifestyle, that is to say balanced meals and an active life will allow better mobility, this is also one of the secrets of many seniors in Japan, who continue to practice certain sports as part of a healthy diet, allowing this country to have the largest number of centenarians.

If you have to eat well, you also have to…drink well, as always without waiting to feel thirsty, whether you are a high-level athlete or a less active retiree. By hydrating yourself correctly and regularly, you will wear out your tendon or joint less quickly. Water is, as always, a very precious ally.

Finally, a final reminder: in the event of recurrent joint pain, acute tendinopathy, lumbar blockage... it will always be recommended to consult the advice of a health professional to guide you towards the best therapeutic choices.
