I used to have issues with my joints.I thought I was at the beginning of developing arthritis. So I started taking those vegan glucosamine supplements. I tried the corn-based one and I can't remember the other
But, anyway, neither did a damn thing. I gave them each about 5 months!
Best thing was changing my diet to fresh, raw whole foods, honestly. This made a huge difference. I flooded my body with minerals with all the greens
But I'll tell you what supplements worked -- and very quickly. Jarrow Formulas, BioSil
, (I used the liquid drops, but they now have it in capsules) and MSM
. Using these two is really great for joints -- Awesome stuff.
Both are also the best beauty products one can buy; your skin, hair, and nails will improve -- that alone may make them worth it
I find these at all the vitamin shops, whole-foods-type markets; so you may not have to order online. The BioSil is only by Jarrow; but MSM is offered by many companies. I like the fine powder rather than the granular.
Jarrow Formulas consistently offers good products. They also have a Joint product, "Flex-Zyme"
, which you may be interested in or their Veg Glucosamine
, neither of which I've tried; so I cannot tell you if they are effective. But, if I wanted a veg glucosamine, I'd give theirs a try, just because they have a good record. Notice, too, with all their bones and joint supps, they suggest taking the BioSil with it for best results.
Good luck, and I hope you feel better.
