I have elbow problems.

I have had 5 cortisone shots in the last 18 months.

I have started taking Chondroitin, Glucosamine and MSM, and so far it is helping.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

I had some joint issues when I was lifting and started doing BJJ about 10 years ago. The BJJ was tearing my joints apart since I was new to the sport and didn't really know when to tap. I starting taking an off-brand joint support supplement and my pain went away within 3 weeks. I stopped taking the supplement when I moved to Eastern Europe and wasn't training as often.

In all honesty I can't say that it was the supplement or the fact that I learned how to avoid armbars, but in the end I didn't have any major issues until I started lifting again in 2013. I'm debating on taking a supplement again since I've had ongoing (although no debilitating) pain in my elbows so I'm in the same boat as you.

I'll let you know what happens though. Good post.

This is my second time using Phosflex and I love it. I used it when I was bulking last year. And I'm using it again now that I'm working construction and my joints will be going through more strain.

I use the Nature's bounty Glucosamine/Chrondrotin/MSN it has borage oil in it as well.
I also take 5000mg of vit-D3 and Salmon Oil 6000 mg per day I use knee wraps as well, for me my joints are small so when training my knees and elbows will flair up from time to time with out those supplements and I use wraps that helps greatly.

I will second the higher fat diet as well.

Edit: I do not take a horse sized dose of this stuff...
Ha! Now we know why your strong as a horse!

I take two caps of Joint Rehab from AAEFX in the morning to start my day. Always had a nagging shoulder and this has seemed to help lessen the discomfort I have from it. Plus, it contains cratine mono which oddly enough had been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

I've used Now Liquid Glucos/Chond and EFX Joint Rehab. Both of them worked great for me. There are many others out there that will work great as well. . One thing that really helped me was using the Joint supplement and supplementing with fish oil.
