Glu-chon by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 08:04:23 AM EST
It's rather pricey, no? Does that stuff help? What exactly is it supposed to do for you?

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob

Maybe $20-30 a month by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 08:08:36 AM EST
It's supposed to be good at rebuilding joints, providing joints with lots of needed nutrients.

Then you can skip the whole medical thing and just get serviced at Speedy Muffler King.

I tend to fly 3-4 times a year for work by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #5 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 08:26:07 AM EST
and I don't trust the TSA sorts to fully understand my potential cyborgitude, and dissambling the metal from flesh just to get on a plane is far too much work.

But, if my job can swing me a Hayabusa or equivalent for travel purposes, it just may work out.

I guess my confusion comes from thinking that joints can't be rebuilt. I thought when cartilage was gone that was pretty just the way it was.

Warmest regards,

I think it's supposed to work on cartilage that's by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 08:28:39 AM EST
not 100%, rebuilding what's already there.

Who knows, it could be snake oil, you know how it is with the supplement game, but I'm trying everything to feel better.

better than snake oil.  It's enough for NIH to fund good clinical trials, one of which, by the way, is the first trial conducted entirely over the internet.

Do you do well with yogurt or kefir? by lm (2.00 / 0) #8 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 09:15:21 AM EST
Consuming pro-biotic yogurt will probably help you repopulate your gut with bugs that produce less obnoxious waste gasses.

though of course dairy is contraindicated on some rheumatoid athritis diets.

Those aren't very effective by lm (4.00 / 1) #15 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 11:55:09 AM EST
The number of live organisms in yogurt outnumbers the number of organisms that survive the freeze drying process by several orders of magnitude. For those that can't consume dairy for one reason or the other, soy yogurt is a far better option.

Or at least this is the case if the methodology for my term project in the biology class I took three years ago was correct. We took five random off the shelf L. acidophilus supplements and tried to grow the little critters in an incubator and measured growth of the critters by changes in the light density of the test tube they were growing in. Pro-biotic yogurt greatly outperformed the freeze dried supplements.

This isn't to say that there is no benefit in such supplements. They do contain some live organisms. A single serving of yogurt just happens to contain more, especially if it is made in a bacteria friendly fashion.
