I have spent countless hours reviewing the research around nutrition and inflammation and how it affects the healing of connective tissues especially the plantar fascia.
My conclusion is that Plantar fasciitis and other inflammatory conditions are greatly improved by consuming foods and supplements that reduce the amount of inflammation in the body.
There is also concern regarding long term use of NSAIDS and other over-the-counter anti-inflammatories that can be harmful over time.
This prompted many of my patients to ask, what supplements should I take for plantar fasciitis?

The best vitamins and supplements for plantar fasciitis include those that naturally reduce inflammation such as turmeric and CBD.
And those that play a role in collagen production and or tissue repair such as collagen peptides and calcium, as well as those that help with muscle and fascia discomfort such as magnesium and essential oils.
Now, let's take a look at each of these supplements and how they help manage the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
