Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM by Number One Nutrition

Several years ago, when I was 28, I had an unfortunate event where I messed up one of my ligaments in my knee. The doctor had told me that due to me be being overweight, I had tore one of the ligaments in my knee when I was walking down some steps and hit a patch of ice. Although it wasn't broke, I believe that I would have been far better off, if it would have broke instead of just a tear, as I believe the pain is far worse. So since then, 9 years later, I still deal with some knee problems, but then again I have been all my life. One of the doctor's that I had seen for my knee at that time, had actually instructed me to take some Glucosamine capsules during the winter months to help my joints heal after I had needed a Left Knee Arthoscopy.  At the time, in fact, I can remember him stating that if I wanted to take it all year long, I could do so, but he felt that I should have been fine with just the winter months, so off and on, for several years and taking several different brands of the Glucosamine capsules, I do believe that it helps me during the winter months when I become stiff.

It wasn't until my accident two years ago, that I started dealing with more major issues, This issue happens to be joint pain. Honestly, it is a constant battle having to deal with the pain, Day-in and day-out. Some days are better then others. I limit my activities, I become anti-social, I go out and do things, well I deal with the pain. Honestly it should be me who decides where I want to go and not my joint pain.

And then there was LIGHT! I received an offer to check out Number One Nutrition Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM capsule, and how it could help me regain control back into my life and how I could maintain healthy joints for years to come! So I figured why not, normally I don't even start taking this anyways till the beginning of January. So, why not now, whats a few weeks earlier, I mean after all, January was right around the corner. I have been using this product for over two weeks now, and when I walk, it doesn't seem to send a volt going down my leg right leg. Plus since the weather has been wacky, meaning its either cold one day or warm the next, I mean is this honestly our winter, I have become slightly more stiff then normal, but things do seem to be loosening up some.

So what really is in it?
This is the fun part, because as a nurse, I actually do know quite a bit about some of this stuff. Each serving size is 3 capsules, their not hard to swallow, and there is no aftertaste. Glucosamine is key in rebuilding cartilage, ligaments and tendons. We need our cartilage, ligaments and tendons, so that they can protect our joints and allow our bodies to move freely. The Chondroitin helps our joints to become more flexible and have better elasticity and lastly the MSM is fundamental in the creation of collagen, elastin and cartilage which will ensure healthier joints.  Normally these three occur naturally in our bodies. However, due to aging, being overweight and trauma, their production is decreased. As our bone-protecting cartilage becomes thinner, the bones will not be protected when we move which in turn will cause pain and discomfort.

Like myself, this product is aimed for individuals like me who suffer from:

  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Joint cracking and popping (Maybe my boyfriend needs some of this)
  • Not being able to exercise as you normally are used to

 By using this over-the-counter supplement, a person can expect to :

  • Build cartilage and protect their joints
  • Give their joints more elasticity and mobility
  • Help their body maintain healthy joints
  • Help minimize their joint pain (which is mostly the important one to me at least)
Because honestly, who wants to go through life, and continue to be in pain. Frankly, its not fun, and although I am still here, I don't plan on staying long. So don't let joint pain live your life, you live it, and kick that joint pain to the curb because Lord know's I plan too!

So what are you waiting for go check out the company for further information, or you can check out their Amazon Product Page either way, you have nothing to lose except that dreaded pain!
