Couldn't find what you looking for?


When you go to the gym, your intentions are to work out, build your muscle strength, put on a few pounds of muscle and generally get fit. For some people this can be a challenge due to the throbbing pain they experience in their knee joints when they are trying to complete a set of squats or when they are trying to do so many bench presses, but they can’t because of their shoulders that have become inflamed.

Glucosamine Supplement

This is the most common supplement for joints in the shops because it simply works and does what it’s advertised to do. If you have osteoarthritis, this supplement can help a little in reducing the pain you experience and it has been said to also help with preventing the basic wear that your joints sustain over time. Research was conducted that proved that by taking Glucosamine it can enhance the efficiency of ibuprofen. The long term effects on the body have not been researched but it is said to be safe for the short term usage. If you have allergies to shellfish or you have diabetes then you should not take this supplement. You need to be taking this supplement on a dosage of one thousand five hundred milligrams every day divided into three times of the day for a minimum of six weeks for you to notice the benefits it supplies.

Collagen Hydrolysate

This is a protein which helps with the generation of cartilage. There was a study conducted which proved that by taking Collagen Hydrolysate you will experience a huge reduction in the pain you experience. This usually means that people who take Collagen Hydrolysate can reduce intake of other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It should be taken in a dosage of ten grams each day for around a three month period.

Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin Sulfate puts a good amount of momentum on the repair process of the joints by acting as a building block for the present cartilage. Sometimes taking too much Chondroitin Sulfate can cause irritation to the stomach and if it is taken for a long period of time it can also effect one’s insulin levels. Therefore it should only be taken for a maximum of six months and in doses of eight hundred to one thousand two hundred milligrams each day which is split into two or three doses during the day. It is recommended to consult your doctor prior to taking this supplement.
