MendMeShop.com | home

Is their parent company nd they have a lot of products to help fight off Arthur, they also have a very friendly staff to help if you need help finding the right products for your problem.

Good Luck

Rusty, both my knees are shot, both need total replacements. I too was faced with the same issue, how to lose weight when you can't exercise.
My solution was to join a fitness center and swim laps. I was never a good swimmer, but the internet is a good trainer/coach and I taught myself to swim. The result has been amazing. I have lost 25 lbs in the last year, toned up and I can now get by with 2 Advil in the morning for my knees. (takes the edge off) Swimming is great exercise and painless on the knees. It's a great way to lose pounds and good cardio too. I highly recommend it.

I walk two miles every morning and again some afternoons. Best thing I ever did.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

animal feed stores have absorbine for horses in a quart bottle for about the same price as a small bottle from the drug store. i like the applicator in the small drugstore bottle.
Times 2 ....
I've been using this for 10 years or so and it has helped me greatly.
It yakes 2-4 weeks to start feeling the relief, but for me it was well worth the wait.

We also take Glucosamine/chondroitin. We both find that without it we will soon start feeling the pain again. We do take the one that contains sulfate.
