: I've been getting a lot of customers into the store I work at carrying the new book THE ARTHRITIS CURE. I haven't read the book so I can't comment on it but the author suggests that the two products together will be better than just one or the other. If I'm not mistaken, GS is an amino sugar while CSA is a purified extract from bovine trachea. The original CSA product was introduced by Twinlab in 250 mg capsules and they suggest one a day. Now there's this guy who's suggesting in his book to take 1600 mgs a day (!). Personally I've seen good results from one 250 mg CSA and one 750 mg GS capsules twice a day. That, by itself, is expensive enough so that's what I'm using whenever I feel some tendon problems coming on. Also, I have found that bromelain, a digestive enzyme, when taken away from food, is a very good natural anti-inflammatory. I've also been using a lot of Vitamin C with bioflavinoids as I believe they will help with inflammation. Other good possibilities are the ayurvedic herb Boswellia and the spice Tumeric (active ingredient is Curcumin). If you're sick of popping lots of Advils maybe try some of this stuff! My two cents...
I am making an apointment with my doc today as I can't stand the pain in my right knee any more. I think that time pedals really fucked me over. I turn my HEEL in and time only rotates out! My knee hurt for 6mos and I switched back to look and that is much better, but it still hurts. I've done 3 months of active release and that helped for awhile so I'm wondering if I didn't wreck my meniscus from these fucking pedals. I also had only one crash at 30mph hour last year and I went over the bars and they took me to the hospital on a backboard but I released out before I hit the ground and my knee never hurt, so I don't think it was from that. Here is a nice crash story for you CS I was winding up for a sprint and some dumb ass went off the course in a crit and instead of taking his free lap he tries to get back in and he splits a tree and his body goes one way and his bike flies into the race. It pops into the guys in front of me and takes a couple of them out but I'm still coming up the curb. Well, the back wheel lines up the spokes perfectly with my front wheel and its over the bars for me with no braking! I went to the hospital cause they wanted to make sure I didn't break my hip or lower back but I didn't have a scratch! I got out of the hospital before everybody else! Thank god for that asshole that my zipp didn't get broken or I would have killed him! Thanks for whoever wrote about bromelain as I knew about it's possibilities but had never heard of anyone using it. Anarchy in the USA!
