In brief: Fish oil rathers
Actually omega 3 fatty acids ( fish oils) rather than vitamins have anti-inflammatory properties but you have to get to the 3-5 gram range per day minimum for that effect.
If tolerated you can take up to 16 grams per day.

In brief: Not really
There are 150 to 300 types of arthritis.
Vitamin deficiency can cause a variety of medical conditions. In general a vitamin deficiency does not cause arthritis but can be seen in some musculoskeltal conditions. The most prominent is osteoporosis and vitamin d. But vitamin d deficiency also causes muscle weakness. Vitamin b-12 deficiency is associated neurological and hematologic aching.

In brief: Supplements
Actually fish oil supplements, omega-3-fatty acids, rather than vitamins specifically are helpful in treating inflammatory conditions.
Levels of 3grams of o3fa daily and up to a maximum of 15grams (if tolerated) have been shown to have beneficial anti-inflammatory effects.
