    Supps for cartilage support

    Hi everybody. Doc has a theory that I may be suffering from the cartilage-weakening side-effects of having taken Cipro two months ago. (Kneecap randomly dislocated and collapsed... pulled a ligament under my diaphragm which caused breathing problems which caused pneumonia...)

    I did find this thread:
    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread17371.html

    but thought I'd ask if anybody else has suggestions for supplements that might help.

    Currently taking:
    • daily bone broth
    • glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM
    • my usual vitamins (plus extra omega 3)


    Thank you!

    Jenny's link mentioned "fucose" (not fructose).

    Thanks all. Sure, I'm already taking vitamin D, just didn't think to mention it in this context. And I get a lot of C from pineapple and veggies, conveniently. I take a multi and magnesium, zinc, some other stuff I can't think off offhand.

    Fucose -- huh, interesting. I don't see anything joint-related there, though...? Or a mention in the other post, even. Must be missing something.

    I did find some interesting info about free fucose alarming your immune system (inflammation) so maybe mega-dosing it is not such a good idea. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17697405
