Supplements For Knees?


#1

What would be a good supplement for my knees? They don't hurt, per se, but they do sound like my grinding coffee in my kneecaps when I climb stairs. Any info will be much appreciated.


#2

You can’t go wrong with flax seed oil or glutamine products.


#3

Supercissus can really help, also up your good fats a lot -virgin olive oil, nuts etc

Why flax oil? It is an omega-3. but in ALA form. The body needs EPA, and especially DHA. Very little ALA is actually converted to those (between 5-20% to EPA, less for men, and less than 1% to DHA). Get your Omega-3 from seafood or marine algae.

I did a trial run of it for a few months for a nagging shouler in the past. Saw zero difference in feel or any sense of better health in my joints. Others have had success though. IMO… waste of money.

I used glucosamine and chondroitin for many years. I have 3 knee ops and may years ago the doc told my knees were shot. I had knee pain most the time just gutted it out.
This completely changed when I did one thing for my body. Lost about25 pounds from 217-192. Once I hit 200 my knee pain was completely gone.
If I over work them they will hurt but other than that I am thrilled.
If you want to do anything for your knees loose weight.

I went through a bottle of it, but also saw no benefit (for shoulder pain). Just wasn’t the right product for me.
