i have an interest in adding anti-inflammatory elements into my diet. ive had some tendon and/or ligament issues in the past, and once in awhile my knee gets inflamed if I’m not careful which is an annoyance. I’ve found a number of things to help me over a period of time…
#1 Fish Oil: mega-dosing on a constant basis. I try to get at least 15 grams of it depending on what brand I’m using. If using a high EPA/DHA supp like Flameout you need substantially less caps.
#2 Other good fats: I try to avoid starchy carbs and take in a higher fat intake than most lifters. I find this helps over the long run.
#3 Garlic: I’m a poor student so instead of garlic in capped form I chop and mince up a clove of garlic before bed and down it as fast as I can with water…
#4 Turmeric / Circumin: I’ve just started using this more by itself. I’ve always had it in food, but I’m trying one teaspoon a day before bed. Will definately cap this though, its wayyyy to strong. Anyone have any idea of dosages? Can I OD on this stuff?
#5 Cissus RX: I use the USP labs product in bulk form for cheapness, i think its a 10% extract. I take about 15 grams a day. it worked wonders on some elbow problems i’ve had… it tastes horrible though.
Anyone have any other ideas or any comments on my regime
