Glucosamine, Chondroitin & PE
OK, I have been seeing advertisements for Glucosamine and Chondroitin and their potential to reduce joint pain. I am over 30 and sometimes have knee pain when I am very active with running and such.
Anyway, from what I understand (a limited amount, admittedly) Chondroitin sulfate is part of a large protein molecule (proteoglycan) that gives cartilage elasticity.
From what I understand, with PE, we are attempting to deform ligaments and soft tissue, not cartilage. So would taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin make deforming ligaments and soft tissue more difficult, by making them more elastic? And in the process, make PE an even more uphill battle?
