Joint Pain

While I am really into bikes and health in general, one thing I have really started to notice is over joint pain.   Sometimes when standing up, other times while on the bike, and mainly overall it is in my knees.  My left knee in particular, as I injured it while running about 5 years ago.

I have been checking out information on different supplements one could take to help with this, and the one that keeps getting mentioned is Glucosamine.  I drink plenty of water, I mean a lot, so I know that any pain I feel is not just a matter of dehydration.  I wanted to know more about it, what kind of vitamins or natural products I could take to help out, and keep me active, and I came across this article on Ezine on Glucosamin and Chondroitin Supplements for Joint Pain  .  Basically it talks about different types of Glucosamine, which I really did not know what it was in the first place, and that there are different types.  I going to try some of the supplements mentioned out for a while and see if they help at all.  I'll keep you posted.


Basically I am looking for a way to not have to take aspirin when I get some swelling in my knee.  If you have any suggestions, let me know.
