As I get up there in age, I am paying more attention to supplements and items that can help me ease into old age gracefully. Sine arthritis is a common ailment that comes with age (and runs in my family along with cancer) I have being researching on some ways to help keep arthritis at bay. In my search, I ran across glucosamine chondroitin msm. It seems that this supplement helps build and support cartilage while soothing joint pain. Interesting.
