    Cheers puregains

    I was a bit sceptical as the only suplement Ive ever taken is cod liver oil. I have bought a two week course of tablets, how long did you take it for?

    good god , this is going back a few years , I think 3-4 wks. 1 tablet thingy a day. Since its supposed to be good for you too , as well as fighting the pain I just carried on til I finish the bottle. Bought some more recently as the pains back.

    hey samba - i did some research on this awhile ago. never took it though. i believe it's something that takes awhile before you see improvement but think most people seem to agree it helps.

    sometimes i think about getting it for preventive measures. not sure if that works though.

    I have been taking glucosimine for over 3 years now.

    The other supplement is called condroitin. You can get a pill with both combined. I like EAS's version which is seperate pills. It is reccomended that you take 1500mg of one and 900 mg of the other, which is 3 pills a day.

    I had walked with a limp caused by bursitis in my hip for over 3 years, and noticed great improvement in decrease of pain in just under 30 days.

    It is not a overnight wonder drug, it takes a while for it to start working.

    I heard about it from someone who played tennis, and had elbow pain, so it works on most joints.

    Glucosamine has been shown to cause insulin resistance.

    The positive effects generally outweigh the negatives though, providing you're on a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

    If it hurts it may be something more than just a normal pain. I will recommend to go a Sports Medicine Dr. and don't play with your health.

    If this supplement makes your pain go away is it then because it helped the joints or just desquised the pain (like a pain killer) ?
