Are there any Vitamins, nutrients or supplements you can take to help your Tennis Elbow heal?
Sooner or later; sometime between the anti-inflammatory pills, the ice packs and getting the brace (and trying to figure out just what IS the right treatment strategy for Tennis Elbow ) you’re going to start asking yourself:
“Is there anything I should be taking to support my healing process, give me some pain relief and help me recover from my Tennis Elbow injury faster?”
And you’ll come across all sorts of claims on the Internet about this, that or the other vitamin or supplement helps – including but not limited to:
- Basic Vitamins, like A,B,C and D
- “Anti-inflammatory herbs” Bromelain, Turmeric Ginger
- MSM and Glucosamine

- Collagen supplements, including Shark Cartilage

And when it comes to the damaged tendons involved in Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow, I think Vitamins C and D, and simple getting adequate protein are the key nutritional foundations.
There’s nothing wrong with thinking about A and B Vitamins, too, but these vitamins are very common in most reasonably healthy foods, so let’s talk about Vitamin C…
