I'm going to be 80 this year...and the arthritis in my body started when I was 18, so a LONG history. I've tried everything and just about done everything, years of chiro work and D.O. work and a hip replacement that left me with a shorter leg and other complications but that's for another posting.

What is helping me NOW is:

Cosamin DS (in my 6th months of 3 capsules daily)
Higher Doses of EPA-DHA Omega 3's (Jarrow) 4-5g daily) I do fine with this amount.
Turmeric Curcumin 3 softgels daily (Sports Research)

I'm doing all in my power to NOT get knee replacement which got worse with hip replacement (shorter leg)...vicious cycle...saw the ortho surgeon the other day and he said it's amazing I can walk and bend my knee as well as I do and I truly believe the Cosamin DS is doing it for me.

Have you considered bone broth? I've been using organic turkey bone broth as a preventative.
Yes, I've cooked my own bone broths but not in recent years. Do you mean the boxes of organic broths? I can't stand in kitchen and do those bone broths so the boxes would be a lot easier. The boxes would be a lot easier, for sure.

Yes, I mean the packaged in the box that needs refrigeration after opening. The brand I've been using is Pacific. Years back I made my own chicken soups, but never made bone broth on my own. I don't cook too many things from scratch these days, easier to buy it ready to go.

Well, I sleep good, it does NOT hurt when I get my good 8 hrs REM sleep, but as the day goes on it does it's thing...but I do my ibuprofen/tylenol regime every 6 hrs, keeps me going.

Latest stuff I'm taking is NT2 by Life Extension, I'm in my 4th month. I think it does help. I bottle gives me 2 months....so I bought 6 bottles when LEF had a nice sale. https://www.lifeextension.com/vitamins-supplements/item02231/nt2-collagen

Also added Voltaren which is available on Amazon and price is good. Add some to the tin of Ultra Tiger balm I'm never without...rub into my knee.

Doing all I've been doing since knee infection and "clean out" which I do believe made it all worse. DO NOT WANT KNEE SURGERY...

Thanks for asking.
