Maybe an enzyme formula, like Wobenzyme? I don't know much about it, but it might be worth looking into.

Why has no one mentioned low-dose Cissus? Does that not help repair the connective tissue in joints?

MSM is suppose to assist directly with cartilidge repair and re growth. Dymatize also makes a product called joint repair, I used it in the past for a knee injury and it seemed to work well, hard to say though because I was resting it at the same time.

Dude just buy some 50% cissus caps at NP and take 4-5 a day not only will your joints recover but ull lose some fat and build some muscle
there are many studies that show cissus to actully help build cartilage and legiments and tendons

Do some research on Bromelain and serrapeptase.
Bromelain is considered a miracle supp for bodybuilding by many top level guys.
Serrapeptase is proven to have anti-inflamatory effects.
Both aren't directly effective or cartilige by honestly without a diagnosis I would rather treat inflamation. The body will not heal properly with inflamation in the joint. Serrapeptase is also know for thinning and clearing the fluid that causes inflamation and pain. Both are pretty cheap together.
Another tip I have yet to try is some kind of mineral ice (bio freeze i beleieve is what all chiroractors use) to increase blood flow to the area. Again not to dull the pain but with more normal use like before bed ect to make sure the joint is getting a supply of the supps you are taking vie blood flow.

^correct.bold also is great for injuries.
because it seems like the otc supps are not helping original poster's joints.

but shark cartilege works wonders. It's gross, and is sold in like a jerky/dried out form of chewy preserved salted flesh, but it is supposed to be the best for joints.
Give it a shot

You should highly consider Animal Flex. It's formula is fantastic and is designed for bodybuilders/athletes.
What makes Animal Flex different from other joint supplements:
Most joint supplements have the regular glucosamine/chondroitin/msm. These are effective joint supporting nutrients. Animal Flex contains these nutrients in adequate doses however it does not stop there and here is where the differences are:
Animal Flex, like other Animal supplements, is complete and comprehensive. Each pack of Animal Flex consists of several key protective complexes: (1) a potent joint construction complex to help repair connective tissue; (2) a lubrication compound to help cushion the joints from lifting; (3) a support complex to help promote rehabilitation and reduce soreness; and (4) an essential vitamin/mineral blend to underscore optimal joint health.
Animal Flex has some patented ingredients that you wonít find in other joint supplements such as CMO:
WHAT IS CETYLMYRISTOLEATE ?
Cetyl Myristoleate is an all-natural medium chain fatty acid found in only a small number of very select species of animals. Clinical experience suggests that Cetyl Myristoleate acts as an anti-inflammatory, as well as a surfactant and lubricant for damaged joints. Basically, it makes them more "slippery." This substance holds the promise of being the most effective solution to joint problems of any product ever introduced into the market. It is not habit-forming and contains no harsh chemicals or drugs that can cause side effects. It works in a natural manner by acting at the site of inflammation, is highly resistant to oxidation, it has a relatively long life in the body.
Bromelain is another ingredient that you donít find in other joint supplements. Bromelain is useful in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, but it is particularly effective in relieving inflammation associated with infection and physical injuries.
These are just a couple of ingredients that make Animal Flex stand out.

Animal Flex has been a great product for me lately. I gave it a shot when I picked up on my training a few weeks ago, and I've been feeling great thus far. The formula is incredibly comprehensive, and comes at a great price (~$25 for 45 days worth I believe). I feel like such a junkie when I pull out this packet of pills though - almost hide it when I pull it out. Looks so druggish! haha
With that said, I still stack it with Cissus. I have some Osteobolin-C left over which has also been paramount in keeping me feeling great. USPLabs SuperCissus gets phenominal reviews, cannot go wrong there. For the win, I'd say go with Animal Flex along with either SuperCissus or AN's new Osteobolin-Sport (biggest turnoff with AN is the price).
Both Animal Flex and Osteo-Sport contain Hyaluronic Acid, which has my attention as of late. I have yet to really look into the mechanics of how effective it truely is on joint care, but it has been used frequently in practice to treat osteoathritis in the knee... it was injected into the site however, so oral bioavailability is a bit unclear for me at the moment. Regardless, I've had success with supplementing with the two and I'm very impressed so far.

How about something that has been mediaclly approved like deca. I had lower back pain for years and a elbow that always clicked. After running 1 cycle of deca it all went away

I personally see NO difference and many other people don't either. USP is great stuff but it annoys me that their opinion is given out by people as if it's fact when really it is just one companies findings (even if its a reputable one.)
