View Full Version : Weak joints, olive oil??

09-18-2002, 11:51 AM
A friend suggested I take a tablespoon of olive oil first thing in the morning before cooking breakfast. This due to I work physical 8 hours a day and my elbow joints seem to be the weak link. I feel a little weakness in that area when lifting stuff. Back seems to be the problem for most coworkers but dont have a prob there. Any ideas are welcome...

Are you getting a tennis elbow type pain?

If so a tensor bandage might be the trick.

The only dietary thing I've heard of for joints is glucosamine sulfate but I'd do some research b4 delving into that.

Glucosamine is good, however, affects aren't usually seen until you've used it on a constant basis for about 2 months or so. If your joints are hurting try adding some flaxseed to your diet. That should help after a little while.
