So many supplements, what to choose
« on: September 20, 2012, 12:50:57 AM »
Hi I'm new here.

Have had many issues with my knees over the knees. In 2002 I ruptured my left ACL and had that reconstructed. The surgeon put the graft in a 'non optimal' position and so the left knee is unstable and aches.

However the tragic thing is during my rehab, I injured my right knee. I was using a hamstring curling machine, and suddenly felt pain in my right knee.

I immediatly stopped over the weeks my right knee becan to heared, to one day it made an almight crack!

I have since had a scope on the knee and I have been told I have thinned the cartalidge on the back of my knee cap.

At this point the surgeon told me, there is nothing surgically they can do other than a partial knee replacemnt of the knee cap.

He told me to take Glucosame.

What should I take? There is so many options and varieties.

I have heared that its good to take chondroitin and msm as well.

Then there is also liquid and tablet form.

Few things I have found:

Hi,

I am not familiar with the supplements you have in the US, but the basics for the nutrition for your knees is this manner:

Glucosamin 1000mg (at least/per day)
Chondroitin 800mg (at least/per day)

Silicea (very important, acts fore bases homeostasis as well)

Kollagenhydrolysate

As well as a fine balanced diet, with less of saturated fat, and less meat, but much of vegetables, Omega-3 and vitamins. The turnover rate fpr the cartilage takes at least 6-9 month so, chase that diet with high-accuracy). After a while your knee will feel better, the pain will vanish, and you confidend for your knee gets better.


Good luck!!

I live in the UK.

Are you saying that none of the above supplements are any good?

No, the three, which seemed good for are ok my in my point of view.
Just try them, especially the first two look appropriate to me.
If there is a inflammation try to eat less meat instead fish and oil.
Thats all

Well the point is that some supplements are really useful in this situation . My friend  is taking Glucosamin 1000 mg daily along with Chondroitin 800 mg which are really effective . What do you say about it ? . Have any one tried both ? .
