supplements for joint and knee

Postby Chan » Fri Jul 15, 2011 11:08 am

Hi,
Anyone can recommend supplements to maintain and improve joint function and knee?

Recently I have knee problem (a bit of pain). Am not sure whether I should take glucosamine, cause it's like taking long term pain killer. If I take the Glucosamine, what is the dosage? 500 / 750 / 1500???

If I do not have the pain any more, what supplement I should take to prevent?

Thanks

Glucosamine is not a pain killer. I heard a pharmacist explain before that it helps the body produce something to improve the padding in the joints. It is harmless. I take it for a few weeks and stop once the pain improves. I take it again when I feel the joints stiffening. If your pain is excruciating, take the 1500 or ask the pharmacist.

my mum & her friends recommended me the supplement from ALL LINK Medical & Health Products Pte Ltd (tel:6846 0337) for Bone & Joint Restoration (GAG & Collagen II).

You can get this from OG Departmental store. It is manufactured in Singapore.

Thanks Brownbelt and Orangebelt.
Surprisingly now I don't feel the pain although I did not take any supplement yet. But I did quite a bit of swimming. Maybe that's help. I dont know.

Still I think it's advisable to take supplement for improving or at least maintain the joint function and knee. I will try to call ALL Link. Thanks

I heard about the fish oil may be could ease joint pain,you can try it,but I think do some exercises would be better.
