Three Direct Routes to Joint Health

Looking after joint health is a must for the committed bodybuilder. With such a high-impact training regime and such high physical standards to reach and live up to, the body's joints must be looked after. Arthritis is a terrible and debilitating condition, causing painful and crippling inflammation of the joints, especially in the hands and feet. Avoiding this burden in later life ought to be a major priority – and that's without going into the other joint complaints that can afflict the unwary and unprepared.

Fortunately, there are many bodybuilding supplements concerned with joint health, and the only question is which ones are right for you. Here's three of the most effective:

1. Chondroitin. As one of the most important and widespread “ingredients” in the body's cartilage, chondroitin is partly responsible for keeping your cartilage strong, as well as combating harmful enzymes that can damage or destroy it. Most people taking chondroitin take a daily does of 800mg, split into two equal amounts. Many believe that the supplement is at its most effective when taken alongside glucosamine.

2. Glucosamine. This naturally produced amino acid is one of the building blocks of cartilage in the human body and is essential to repair and maintain it. Bodybuilders who take glucosamine supplements believe that taking the susbstance – usually in the form of a pill or powder, taken daily in 1,500mg doses over at least couple of months – helps to increase the rate at which new cartilage forms.

3. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). This supplement is marketed as being beneficial to ligaments, helping to boost their suppleness, flexibility and strength mainly through the sulphur which is present, and there are thousands of satisfied customers willing to add their testimony to manufacturers' claims. However, unlike chondroitin and glucosamine, there have been no comprehensive clinical tests carried out, so there is less conclusive evidence to its benefits compare to the others.
