    Knee Pain and Joint Supps


    Just getting an idea from everyone as to what has worked for them in relieving joint pain. My pain is specifically in my left knee, and is getting to the point that it's affecting my workouts and just getting around every day. I have had the knee checked out and it's mainly tendonitis with some very slight cartilage fraying. The only joint supplement that I have tried is SuperCissusRX about 2 years ago, which did help. I know there are more products on the market in this category so was curious about results that others may have had. Thanks in advance for the help.

    OsteoSport worked miracles for me. I have also used Osteobolin-C (similar to SuperCissus Rx), but had to dose it 3-4 times higher than recommended for effects.

    Blutarski,

    I too have tendonitis in both my knees. So severe at times, its hard to walk, forget about sqautting or the like. Doc wants me to rehab, stop my sports. Couldn't do it.

    So, I'm sure as heck not 100% but it's a never ending battle that seems to have gotten better for me. I've taken SuperCissusRx which helped. I also logged LG's Joint Repair however I don't think the product is out yet.

    I would recommend SuperCissus RX by USPlabs since its available for sure.

    Hope this helps.

    On another note, if it's tendonitis, then be sure that you do your best to rehab it to ensure that it doesn't get worse and causing further issues.

    SuperCissus, Glucosamine standard.

    NSAIDs (non-steriodal anti-inflamatory drugs) should be tried if it relates to muscle inflamation. 7 days every 4 waking hours at 400mg for ibuprophen. Will not affect tendon damage.

    I'm just recovering from (another) muscle inflamation - lots of sleep was enough in my case. I think I went too heavy on bicep curls.

    If you are doing Cissus then good physio and ultra-sound (if you can get it) if its tendon related. A heat lamp has previously been suggested - I use hot water (shower / bath) for muscle stuff. Helps a bit.

    Some good tips, although I have to say Im a total non responder to cissus, after trying a couple of types, I got nothing, but as suggested already, I would definitely try a supplement with Glucosamine Chondroitin Msm, there are quite a few out there, try a brand you like or one you already know that makes it. If it works you should notice some relief in 3-4 days.

    SuperCissus has helped me a lot and can be had for fairly cheap. Also can be had in powder form and capped to get even bigger savings.

    Yes, leg press definitely. When i had knee issues walking lunges never bothered me whereas standard lunges in the one spot did.

    Also leg extensions gave me worse pain than squats ever did. Even now i only do the top range of the movement.

    Picked up 2 bottles of Osteosport to give it a good long run. I will report back my results, and try to log it as long as I think I will have enough time to do a proper job. If not I'll def give some feedback. Thanks again for the feedback.

    I ran a log on Osteosport for a month and it was a fantastic product. It really helped my knees (heavy weight/injuries) and shoulders (kettlebell training/tennis) tenfold. If I wasn't poor...i'd get more, haha

    Deuce, I know what you mean about being poor. I've taken advantage of these nice sales and stocked up on alot of different things over the past 2 months. Hoping to sift through what works and doesn't and get a core group of things that work for me. If the Osteosport works though it will be up there on the list, hard to train if you can't move!

    idk if you take a vitamin or not, but controlled labs orange triad is a pretty nice all around wellness product, and contains glucosamine chondroitin and MSM for joints. That along with cissus or something should be real nice.

    Some background first. Have been religiously training for 15 years. Tried a lot of different supps. I had tendonitis in the elbow pretty severely, after 3 weeks on Spring Valley (wal mart brand) Glucosamine/Chrondoiton, totally healed. Have taken it ever since.

    Also, NSAIDS horrible on the liver, and have heard they affect protein synthesis negatively. Orange Triad has Echinacea, which I have been told by Dana Houser, sports MD, that taking Echinacea in a multi is a no-no as it is mildly liver toxic.

    I take SAMe for liver values as well. And that has worked wonders for my liver (normalized all high values after blood work), supposedly good for joints as well, and greatly increased my mood. Wonder supplement I say.

    Get some SAMe (independent testing has shown Nature Made brand had the amount of active ingredient listed) with the money youll save on some walmart brand Glucosamine and you will have the best of both worlds.

    Some great SAMe info:

    http://search.lef.org/cgi-src-bin/Ms...AMES%20SAMe%20

    http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag97/june-report972.html

    http://search.lef.org/cgi-src-bin/Ms...AMES%20SAMe%20

    Also, good idea to refrigerate SAMe. Hope this helps.

    Glucosamine and condroitin/MSM did very little for me with knee and shoulder and albow pain. I added Cissus ( I buy bulk powder and mix with H2O and lemon juice) and have been smiling ever since!

    Wow, the bulk cissus I've tried is not palatable unless capped or parachuted. Pretty hardcore to make a "Cissus Arnold Palmer". Thanks for the feedback.

    Quick update, tried some BioFreeze on the knee last night and got some relief, not total but helped some. Might be something I keep in the arsenal when things act up a bit.

    Instead of starting a new topic just decided to update this old one. I'm now on day 8 of Osteosport (5 capsules daily taken upon waking). I have yet to experience that pain relieving nirvana that i had hoped for but I have noticed some benefits as far as a decrease in left knee pain to a more tolerable level. I will continue to update as I can and will run the full 30 days at the full dosage to properly guage effects of the product. I seem to be a non responder to alot of things but I have had good luck with Cissus in the past. Hoping things kick in for the near future.

    Keep us updated. Most of us have joint pain at some time or another, but unfortunatly for us older guys it is more often than not.

    I have to say the OsteoSport continues to kick in since my last update a few day ago. Knee pain continues to diminish as I start day 12 on the product. Shoulder is also feeling better. Will update again in a few day after leg workout.

    Actually, OsteoSport is far MORE than Glucosamine - that is only ONE of 10 active ingredients in the product.

    Give Animal Flex a shot, many people have made the switch and say it's night and day. Best part is all our products come with a guarantee, if you are not satisfied with it for any reason you can return it no matter where you bought it from.
