For those that have experience with Glucosamine and MSM, or joint support supplements


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about For those that have experience with Glucosamine and MSM, or joint support supplements within the Bodybuilding Supplements category.

Excerpt: Do you guys think any of these supps will help my shoulder? I hurt it about a month ago with bad form on shoulder press. Yes, quite a newbie mistake. Because of the mild pain, all I can basically do now is Leg press and incline treadmill. Ice every day does nothing. Bengay doesnt do much. So will taking any of the above supplements benefit the recovery process? Please I need to know.

    Is the pain in the joint or is it ligaments and tendons?
    Gluc. Chon. MSM has helped my joints over the past yr that I have been using it, mainly elbows and knees.

    I have managed to hurt both shoulders and both elbows, have tried, msm, etc
    And still taking it, with a million other supplements.

    But to no avail, everything still hurts, no explanation on my part, it is just painful,

    If things were a little different, I would be running about 600mg per week of deca or NPP.

    Most younger people seem to improve with it, so try it, also, it is easy to say and hard to do, but donít lift as heavy.

    I didn't get anything noticable from it and I seem to get headaches from the chondroitin/glucosamine combo I have. I switched over to taking cartilage but I'm not completely convinced that does anything much either.

    Re: For those that have experience with Glucosamine and MSM, or joint support supplements

    i'm taking joint care a liquid from sams club...

    3 servings a day to load up on it...
    thats 6 grams of glucoasamine
    4.5 grams of chondriton
    1.5g of msm
    150mg of collagen...

    the first few days my stool was kinda runny becuase cuase I guzzled it all at once in the morning. I seperated the doses through out the day no its ok no digestion problems

    I can say this much i'm on week 2 and after week one my hands didnt seem to hurt that much and the popping that happens in my elbow during heavey benching did not happen this week . I 'm crossing my fingers and hoping i'm not just having a good week but that the joint care is doing something...

    I noticed a strange thing also I have a wrinkle across my brow line in the center of my forhead my wife says my skin looks freash and rejuvenated. I looked in the mirror i'll be damned the line appears to almost be gone..so maybe it is helping the collagen in my skin...

    Re: For those that have experience with Glucosamine and MSM, or joint support supplem

    I've been very skeptical of Gluco/Chon/MSM combo for a while, low and behold I stopped taking it for about 3 weeks and all kinds of things started hurting. Got some TriFlex from GNC (don't worry it was free) and about 2 weeks later all was well again. I'm hooked for life now.
