I'm a 18 year old, hispanic male, and I was just wonderig if I should start taking some joint supplements. My family has never suffered from joint disseases. However, I do workout several times per week. I mostly run about 4 days and perform about 2 or 3 days of upper body excercises. So, I'm concerned that working out could slowly damage my joints, especially my knee, elbow and those in my hands. Would joint supplements actually work? 'cause I've heard from my professor that the body does not absorb vitamins and supplements sold at the store (he means like the fish-oil pills and all of those pills sold at stores). if they do work, would they cause any other unrelated issues? or what other things do you recommend to maintain healthy joints.
