    supplement for tendon inflamation?


    I didn't know where to wright this so I've decided to post it in this section:

    I'm an experienced lifter but I'm having problems for the first time with my arm tendons. 2/3 months ago for personnal reasons, I was lifting and at the same time doing hard phisical work that required many repetitive strenght movements of arm flexion. For several hours I had to work with heavy tools in that kind of movements. So I've began to feel pain in the end of the forearm muscles (near to the elbow, where tendons touches the bones), the ones involved in curling especially in the neutral grip position (I hope I'm being clear, as english is not my first language).

    I already took anti-inflamatory pills but it only works for a few days. In my training sessions I'm having trouble with all movements that requires arm flexion such as curling, rowing, pushdowns, etc...I'm no longer doing the kind of heavy work drescribed above but however the pain (that sometimes is like a burn feeling) is not going away.

    Have someone experienced something like this? How did you resolve this? Is there a supplement that can, in a long term, impede this again or help improving?

    Many thanks for all the help that you can give me.

    I use Cissus XT for a similar issue. Wouldn't hurt to throw in something like Orange Triad or ElastiJoint either.

    I've thought about cissus of course but I was also thinking on a every day supplement to prevent the problem. Maybe some kind of antioxidants??

    Fish oil and Cissus, but you also need to treat the area with some sort of massage and/or myofascial release.

    I had similar issues and I have to admit Super Cissus and fish oil worked wonders for me.

    Fish oil + Cissus and massage is a good bet. Was dealing with some elbow/shoulder issues and massage really helped.

    SNS Cissus XT is tailor-made for this purpose. Joint Force by E-pharm would be a great topical ancillary.

    2g of Cissus XT + 2 servings of our new joint help = happy tendons and ligaments

    EDIT:

    and just to clarify, id only be using 4g of cissus from that combo if i was having any sort of "flare up" or injury...under a more "preventative" circumstance joint help should have you covered

    Joint Force seems to be treating me well, when my knee gets inflamed. I was under the assumption you'd need to take Cissus for a while to get any benefits in this situation, long term.

    I started seeing relief within about 2 weeks using the USP formula.

    What kind of relief?

    I was referring to claims that it can actually repair tendons/ligaments/etc. Admittedly, I dont know much of anything about Cissus, but I read something saying you would need month of continuous usage for that type of effect. I guess my statement was also a question. I thought any short term relief was only an analgesic effect and could subside after usage ceased. Again, I'm more looking for clarification, myself.

    Joint-Help is being released this week...

    it's the FIRST joint support product to offer immediate pain relief, coupled with joint/tendon/ligament regenerative action.

    Acutely, you get analgesia (can even be after the first dose). Long term, you get inflammation reduction and bone/connective tissue support.

    I'd say it worked for me around the same amount of time. I did a loading phase then after a few weeks did 2 in the am and 2 in the pm.

    You get the regenerative part from cissus or from ParActin?

    Both.

    The normal MOA from cissus, as well as Paractin promoting a more healthy inflammatory response. By helping to reduce inflammation when our bodies do not want it(IE - joint paint), it gives the body the time/ability to actually treat the injury

    You can throw 5-10 grams of bulk Cissus powder into a protein shake along with some EFA's and get some decent analgesic effect that day. Tumeric/curcumin/pycnogenol/devil's claw, cat claw/celadrin can all aid in tamping down the inflammation and boosting the healing process. If none of that works..you've probably got a real injury on your hands. That's when I bust out the R3-IGF.

    Joint Help definitely looks interesting.

    I've used Jointforce to good effect on similar injuries. It attacks the inflamation locally with the issues that systemic administration can cause. If used long term it can help heal the injury instead of only treating the pain.

    I have AC joint arthritis and the only thing that I find to help with immediate pain relief if Joint Spray.

    I know it probably sounds like shilling, but it isn't; I was originally rolling my eyes at Pat when he offered to send me a joint spray some 3-4 years ago, but surprisingly, it actually helps. Not a day goes by where I don't use it with my knees and shoulder, considering exercise does not help my shoulder at all and knees are just preventative maintenance heat, coupled with EFS sleeves.
