What supplements can i take to help repair cartilage damage and prevent arthritis in my knee ?

There is an evidence that glucosamine and omega-3 fatty acids can aid joint health and help repair damaged cartilage. Glucosamine is a building block of cartilage that both stimulates rebuilding and inhibits deterioration, while omega-3 fats help to reduce any inflammation. You can buy glucosamine in supplement form - look for a formula combined with just sulfate rather than chondroitin sulfate, which can be harder to absorb. Omega-3 fatty acids are the healthy fats found in oily fish such as sardines, wild salmon and mackerel. Unfortunately, you would need to eat around 10 portions a week to get sufficient quantities, so it is advised taking a good quality, high dose omega-3 fish oil supplement as well. You need the daily equivalent of at least 1g of combined EPA and DHA, if not double the amount, for maximum effectiveness.
