I am now taking quite a few dietary supplements daily. My brother having informed me that he has been taking glucosomine for a long time for relief of joint pain, I picked up some today. I am now taking two tablets of glucosomine every day. On top of that, I take two calcium tablets with two vitamin C tablets to make sure the calcium is metabolized. There is the multi-vitamins for the over 50 years of age consumers, of course--one tablet a day. The only medication I take, though, is 0.1 mgm of synthroid to correct the metabolic imbalance caused by hypothyroidism. Those are enough supplements!
However, I am naturally more atuned to the benefits of food. I buy mostly organic, GMO-free and hormonal supplement-free food. I buy free-range chicken and eggs. I buy little red meat and what I buy is usually from organically- and hormonalsupplement-free, free-range animals. As for fish, I try to stick to wild fish and I eat little tuna.
Moreover, I am more aware of which food can reduce pain. I know many red vegetables and fruit can be helpful, so I eat a lot of beets and olive oil. I recently got some cayenne pepper, for it too is supposed to help. I hear spices can be beneficial. As well, coffee is supposed to have the same effect, and I drink two mugs of coffee every morning. I don't buy whole beans because dealing with the grinds is enough of a bother. I do notice relief after eating such stuff, especially the beets.
