Before, or After?


Should you apply your topical pain reliever before you exercise? 

There is a growing consensus that pain relievers like BioFreeze and Sombra should be applied before

exercise, especially when the exercise ( and the after-exercise pain) are routine.

So, for example, if you know you will have some pain and discomfort in your knees from jogging, then it may be useful to apply some pain reliever before your run, then again after your run. 

This concept makes a lot of sense. In fact, this same idea has been tried with certain kinds of knee    


Did you treat those knees and ankles before stepping outside?

surgery, where steroids and anti-inflammatory drugs are flushed through the knee during surgery to

reduce the inflammation that will undoubtably appear afterwards. 

So, give those knees a pre-run dose of BioFreeze or Sombra, and see if that

helps reduce your post-exercise pain and speed your recovery. 




Stay Away From Poor Quality Supplements


Some shocking news today! today is reporting that nearly 25% of the glucosaminechondroitin products they tested failed to pass their tests for ingredient content and contamination:

Among the 21 people products selected by ConsumerLab.comwhich contained glucosamine and/orchondroitin, five products (24%) failed to pass’s review…Three products for people were mislabeled: the most expensive supplement tested (costing over $2 per day) contained only 71.5% of its claimed chondroitin…

Some of the products which failed their tests include products from well-known companies such as Whole Foods, TR Caps, and Joint Juice. 

Folks, this is one of the key reasons why it is so important to buy your glucosaminechondroitin supplements from companies selling brands that have been researched for you.

Many of these supermarket brands are competing on price, not quality, and certainly not on science. So how do you choose which product to take?
