Ive been taking this joint supp now for over a month, Its a joint support thangy, that has abounch of diff joint stuff in it. Ive taken 3 everyday so far.
My tedonitous and joints still hurt, could it be caused by the brand or quality of the supp?
Would it help if I took 5pills aday instead of 3?

You're talking about glucosamine and chondroitin no doubt?

For your joints... you can use Glucosamine Chondroitin as TripleP said, also, Flax Oil helps out along with a good ol' anti-inflammatory such as Vioxx. Its an arthritis medication, but I take 25mg/day for my tendonitis in my knees and I have no problems at all.

most joint care products won't do anyting for tendons

things like:

bromelain
devils claw
tumeric

are natural alternatives to vioxx

Are you still doing exercises that led to your joint issues in the first place?
