Supplements for Musculoskeletal Health?

Post by ker0uac » Tue Mar 23, 2021 4:36 pm

Do you take any supplements or have special diet to improve musculoskeletal health? I have awful joints. I already eat loads of fresh salmon, so don't need fish oil. I am looking into glucosamine and vit D.

Why do you take it? I ask bc it doesn't show up as one of the main supplements for joint health

I came across it by accident. I initially started taking it for nerve damage and nerve pain in my feet but I found that it also eliminated knee pain. There might be a few studies out there and ya'll can crucify me for making claims based on experience rather than scientific evidence. No worries. :)

Glucosamine. I've been taking it for years for joints. It works. If I stop taking it, I definitely notice after a few weeks. (Don't get suckered into the kind with chondroitin.)
