Joint Support Supplements

Every now and then I get asked the question, “What can I take to help my joint pain”?  Well, I am going to list of a few of the main ingredients in the some of the more popular supplement blends to help you decide what to look for.

S-Adenosyln Methionine.  It is more commonly know as SAMe, is a dietary supplement known for its effect in decreasing joint pain.  Users generally dose 600mg a day, twice a day, and studies have shown the effect similar to that of celexocib, a commonly used pain reliever, and that S-Adenosyln Methionine improves knee strength and mobility.

Glucosamine Sulfate.  This is a extensively studied chemical found naturally in the fluid that surrounds the knee.  Studies show, the body uses glucosomine to make many of the substances needed to build tendons and ligaments and to compose the fluid surrounding joints.  Taking glucosamine sulfate can help repair the cartilage and increases the amount and quality fluids surrounding the joints.  Some users benefit from this supplement, whereas others do not.  Only one way to tell, right?

Chondroitin.  Another extensively researched chemical, it is also a naturally occurring chemical generally seen in the cartilages, the tough connective tissues that cushion the joints.  Scientific studies suggest chondrotin may be effective in relieving joint pain and was first thought to slow the progression of osteoarthritis.

Cissus Quadrangularis.  This is a newer addition in the joint supplement industry that has really picked up steam lately.  Cissus in a medicinal plant from Ceylon and India and has been used for over some 200 years to help fight bone problems and other medical problems.  In one study, scientist gave Cissus to several athletes who had bone fractures that had to be healed.  They discovered that those taking Cissus were healed approximately 33-45% faster than the controlled speed.

The choice is yours.  There are many different support supplements out there, make sure to check the labels and give one a shot.  I personally respond well to Cissus.  It tends to get into my system faster than Glucosamine and Chondroitin, and the joint relief is more present.  Remember however, everyone responds different every ingredient so it may take some time to find the right combo for you.
