Words from our in House Expert:

dr.-dave-bordered.jpgDr. Dave States: Excessive wear and tear in the large joints of the body is common among athletes and certainly the elderly.  Glucosamine and chondroiton sulfate are two key components on feeding the joints with proper growth factors.  Lubrication is often supplied by these products as well with addition to having plenty of Omega 3,6,9's in the body at all times to feed the ligaments and tendons.  Many different joint formulas are given sitewide.  Silica mineral is another one that can create a glossy mineral basis to the joint region.

Acute arthritis develops faster within days or even hours and affects both children as well as adults. You should seek medical attention as early as possible when faced with this condition.
