I'm a 18 year old Hispanic male, and I was just wondering if I should start taking some joints supplements.My family has never suffered from any joint disease. However, I workout several times per week. I mostly run about 5 miles 4 days a week, and perform about 2 to 3 days of upper body exercises. So, I'm concerned about my joints being slowly damage due to the workout, especially my knee, elbows, and the joints of my hands. Even sometimes I feel some light pain in my elbows and wrist area. So my main question is, would joint supplement work ( My anatomy professor says most vitamins and supplements sold at stores as pills are not absorbed by the body)? what do they exactly do? If they do work positively, Would they cause any unwanted, unrelated effect? Is there any other way to maintain healthy joints?

  • Hi there, you may consider taking supplements for your joints. If there's one supplement I could recommend it will be Joint Health from Hercules Vitamins. Hercules joint Health has the important nutrients formulated to protect our joints. I'll enumerate them below.Glucosamine Sulfate is shown in scientific research to help build joint cartilage.*MethySulfonylMethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring nutritional sulfur shown to support healthy connective tissues like tendons, ligaments and muscle. MSM supports normal pressure inside cells and removes toxins.*Hyaluronic Acid (HA) works as a cushion and lubricant inside tissue cells. HA acts as a shock absorber for the joints and is a lubricating agent which complements Glucosamine Sulfate and MSM in Hercules Joint Health, rejuvenating and repairing joints.
