    Default Spinoff: HUMAN Joint Supplements. Any favorites?

    I've been contemplating trying out joint supplements for myself - though they're so darned expensive I'm hesitant. Wondering if anyone here has done so, and what supplements you'd recommend? (Or NOT recommend.)

    I've learned the hard way that tablets & pills don't seem to work as well for me as capsules.

    I've had good luck w/ my trashed knees the last year and half while I've been taking these (the Nimble Supreme w/ HA):http://www.adeptusnutrition.com/human.html

    I'm looking for a joint supplement for my aging dad who has a bad knee, that would contain both Glucosamine Sulfate and HA (his father's day present!)
    Any recommendations?

    I take 2000 mg of GNC Vegetarian Glucosamine (derived from plants, not shellfish) and 1000 mg MSM daily. Without it I can hardly walk on my right knee, with it my knee feels fine.

    I was on CVS triple strength Glucosamine/Chondroitin tablets. It was so-so. Then I moved over to Osteo Bi-flex and felt a lot better. Then, I tried the CVS version and felt good with that as well. Then I found a third version that has the same formula, so now I buy whichever one is on the Buy One, Get One sales when they come around. The BOGO sales are the best. Whichever brand you choose, keep an eye on the vitamin/supplement sales at your pharmacies and big box stores. Around here, KMart has the best prices.

    I have had the best results from liquid HA sold for horses.

    I'm quite young, but have very bad joints. Take this advice for what you're paying for it.

    I had been taking various supplements for years with minimal noticeable results; It wasn't until I cut way back on carbs in my diet that I noticed a dramatic change in daily aches n' pains. It wasn't a terribly conscious diet decision and was accompanied by some significant weight loss & quite a lot of some spices that are thought to be anti-inflammatory (tumeric, ginger, cinnamon), but the spices weren't exactly increased in my diet and I had been just as thin in years past and had the screaming joints back then. The only significant change, diet wise, was a reduction in carbs.

    Perhaps not the answer you were looking for, but I spent a lot of cash on supplements; no real change for me until I stopped spending money on bread and potatoes.

    RESVERATROL!!! 1000 mg/day and 2000/day when I'm really stiff. I swear by it for me AND my horses (EquiThrive is the brand on the market for the ponies)!
    Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

    Only thing I can feel a difference with is the drink, Elations. Day 3 and I'm loose and happy. Pills, capsules, etc. makes no difference.

    Elations is costly as hell but MAN it works.
