+2 on the Curcumin, Vit. C and Fish Oil.riemsesy wrote: ↑Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:48 amfor my knee I benefit from this:
Curcumin Phytosome capsules
2 mg omega 3 fish oil (two caps)
1000mg vitamin c (1 caps)
msm (Methylsulfonylmethane) (two caps)
Now I am taking these for two months. I couldn't walk the stairs without pain, but that's gone now.
I was beginning to develop arthritis in the knee with a fair amount pain. A visit to the orthopedic surgeon resulted in some Cortizone shots that offered temporary relief before a winter photography expedition last year. I came back with a lot of pain and wasn't willing to accept the "there is nothing you can do, your are getting old" nonsense. After a lot of research, I started taking in the morning a tall glass of warm water mixed with Turmeric powder (Curcumin), mixed with half a teaspoon of freshly crushed Black Pepper and a scoop of gelatin. After a week of so of drinking this concoction, my knees are fine - no pain at all. Apparently the Black Pepper enhances the bioavailability of the Curcumin and is essential to enable proper absorption. I take the Vit C and the Fish Oil separately.
