    Joint sups, how much is too much?


    So was planing on taking super cissus, omega 3, fish oils and glucosamine for my joints. The questions is, is that over doing it or is that fine?

    That is perfectly fine, you might be able to drop the glucosamine and still get the same desirable results.

    If you check out Osteo-sport it'll have cissus/glucosamine plus other ingredients that will help with your joints.

    You really only need 1 product for joint pain at this point...

    Joint Help - http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/i...-capsules.html

    Quote Originally Posted by Mr.Cooper69 View Post
    As always, a big thanks to VaughnTrue for sending me a full bottle of iForce Joint-Help's main ingredient. I was told that it was a single ingredient, capped, and part of a future formula with other ancillaries.

    I used this product continuously for about a month at 1 cap/day on most days. I was specifically chosen because I was enduring a trifecta of injuries at the time: recurring shoulder pain, wrist pain when benching and pressing, and a pain in my outer pec that prevented proper contraction.

    Week 1: I noticed a couple things: my joint issues were not fixed, but I seemed to feel a lot fewer aches and pains associated with weight training and cardio. It seemed to act almost like an analgesic when doing certain movements. I can see this being of great value to the older, sedentary crowd and to young, active individuals, both of whom may suffer from joint pain in their day to day activities. As far as relief in areas suffering from major local pain and inflammation, the effects of the product were only slightly evident during week 1. One other odd effect I noticed was that this product seemed to increase the effects and longevity of stimulants. I can recall quite a few instances in which I took this product shortly before using EC and felt like the stimulant EC of effect lasted around 2 hours longer than usual. Very interesting.

    Weeks 2-3: These two weeks are lumped together because the effects I felt during these two weeks were essentially the same. In the middle of week 2 and into week 3, I underwent a rapid period of joint relief in which both my shoulder pain and wrist pain were essentially gone. By the end of week 3, I had zero pain or stiffness in either joint, something which was VERY pleasing because I could finally effectively bench press again. However, when jumping back on the bench, I realized that the aforementioned muscle/tendon pain in my pec was still present. Also, the effect of this product, when taken even without stims, was a prolonged feeling of alertness which resulted in me dosing it early each morning. Again, very unique with respect to promotion of natural energy levels.

    Week 4 and Beyond: By the end of week 4 (my final week on the product), I had noticed the following: DRAMATICALLY reduced inflammation throughout my entire body, reduced aches and pains following bouts of intense exercise, an essentially healed shoulder and wrist, a stimulant-prolonging effect and alertness boost, and an unhealed pec injury. True to its name, this product aided tremendously with my joints, but I evidently did not notice much as far as helping a pre-existing pec injury. Well it turns out that after getting checked out, I have a small tear in my pectoralis minor. The reduced inflammation did not appear to accelerate the healing of my pec (which is still not totally complete), but I feel that healing a muscle tear is an unreasonable expectation from a joint product anyway.

    Prior to using this product, I had been on USPlabs supercissus. I took a full week deload while dosing the supercissus and my joint pains persisted...I used this product during a full month of training without the added cissus. Thus, time, this ingredient, or a combination of the two contributed greatly to alleviating my joint issues.

    I'm definitely looking forward to trying the finished product and I'm curious to see if others experience similar effects as far as alertness and joint-specific relief. Thanks for reading!

    I was instructed to take 1 cap preworkout by about 45 minutes, which I did. Workout was painless with no side effects, and I was able to restore some of my lifts to max. I continued (and still continue, as I have a handful of capsules left) this routine coming into my Arnold Prep with great success. As someone who had to represent Genomyx at the Arnold, nothing but top form would do.

    I also provided caps to my wife, Christine, who has a undiagnosed wrist injury (waiting on an appt with specialist). Christine's effects are very similar to mine, with the added benefit of relieving her pain during daily activities and while sleeping. She takes 1 cap a day.

    A friend from the gym was given 2 capsules and instructed to take 1 cap before taxing workout. His wrist/forearm was destroyed several years back in a powerlifting accident. Doug used the product and has been bugging me ever since to get him more.

    For the purpose of this experiment, Joint Force usage (what I normally use with the Ibuprofen) was suspended.

    Conclusion: When the weights start getting very heavy and you can feel your joints taking a beating you have two choices: treat your joints or drop the weights down. I'm not one for negative progress, so the weights stay. Since this is only the first ingredient in the formula, I'm anxious to see what the final product offers. I think this will be an invaluable tool, especially for us older guys and gals.

I have to be honest, I am seeing improvements everyday, I am nowhere near as achy I was a week ago. And the biggest improvement like I have said is being able to go down stairs without pain. So far I am very very pleased with Joint Help

    I've been using Flexible from Formutech for a while along with fish oil and have had a dramatic decrease in my knees and hips cracking and joint soreness is all but gone. No more swollen knees after leg day, etc...

    http://fnutrition.myshopify.com/coll...-joint-formula

    it's got glucosamin, chrondriotin, MSM, hyaluronic acid and cissus, probably the most complete formula out there right now! Nutra has it on sale right now for $27 I think, at 2 caps twice a day thats 2 months worth.

    I was on the same recipe for a while, as cissus alone was good but not enough. However, I'm now using Achilles alone and my joints feel as good or better than they did when I was on the plan you describe. Of course I am still taking ten grams of fish oil a day (three grams of EPA/DHA), but Achilles has replaced the cissus/glucosamine combo.

    I logged Joint-Help on another forum, and I am recovering from reconstructive ankle surgery. It really controlled the swelling and aided in my rehabilitation. I was bummed when my log was finished. I need to pick up another bottle. I also use Joint Force.

    Just purchase bulk cissus and take 3g/day

    but to go a little more into it what you are taking is the best thing IMO

    SNS Cissus XT + a basic joint formula will do you well. SNS Cissus XT at 6 caps/day + 1 serving of Joint Help daily will get you through more serious injuries if need be.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    Thanks for the feedback!OP, you could very easily rid yourself of 3 products and just switch to one complete product, Joint Help. The logs should easily speak for themselves.Mike

    Joint Help as aforementioned.

    Some have liked Joint Help + Orange Triad (if they choose to take a multi).

    Really considering Joint Help, I have no experience with ParActin.

    Cissus from USP or SNS is good. I was really surprised by AX Athlete's Joint Restore as well.

    Joint Help is cool because you get all the benefits of Cissus(which are amazing), as well as the incredible benefits of Paractin. Makes using additional cissus obsolete IMO.

    So decided to stick with the stack as I had already order it before I started this thread but will move over to I force joint help as it sounds promising, I've been taking glucosamine and fish oils for a while now and nothing, so put a order in for some cissus rx by usp. The reason for the stack is that I broke my wrist a few years ago and it's given me problems ever since especially with my job and now the cold weather setting in, also my knee is shagged and on top of that I've now done my shoulder in not good. Thanks for the replies.
