Suffering from tendonitis? I found out how to fix the problem!
I had experienced a continual worsening of pain in my elbow joints over a period of a few years, to the point it was difficult to perform simple tasks such as cleaning windows. After trying a few recommendations I found on the Internet, I was still no better off than before. Later, I found that cherries and turmeric spice helped somewhat, but the nagging pain was still there. Eventually I ran across a product called Ultimate Tendon Support that actually worked. I would say that it solved about 90% of the pain problem within a couple of weeks. I noticed that this product contained the active ingredients collagen and polysaccharides. The product was expensive, so I decided to make my own product. My hunch was that the collagen itself might eliminate my tendonitis.
Different Types of Collagen
I researched various types of collagen to find out which one would be best for my problem. Simultaneously, I was looking for a type of collagen that would benefit a friend, who had hip replacement therapy. In hip replacement therapy, the joints are replaced with artificial ones. Hip replacement is usually required because of worn-out cartilage, as was in the case of my friend. I discovered that Type II chicken collagen was suitable for building cartilage, so my friend is taking it so that the other hip joint will not require replacement.
In addition to Type II collagen for cartilage, I also discovered that hyaluronic acid is good for lubricating joints, natural or artificial. So, my friend also takes hyaluronic acid. It has been a year since she had hip replacement surgery, and the pain in her other leg is now gone. This means she will not require hip replacement surgery for her other leg, as previously recommended by her orthopedic surgeon.
I also tried Type II collagen, made from chicken sternum, for my problem – to no avail. Also, the hyaluronic acid did not solve my tendonitis issue. That is when I looked into the more than dozen types of collagen available.
Collagen Type I Solved my Tendonitis Problem
Bovine collagen is Type I collagen. It is good for tendons and ligaments. It is the type used in the Ultimate Tendon Support formula previously mentioned. I was able to find a low-cost source of Bovine collagen powder, and started taking about 1-3 teaspoons per day. In a few weeks, all of my tendonitis was completely gone! Looking at the source of the pain, I deduced that it was predominately from the ligaments in my elbow joints. Ligaments are the connective tissue that connect joints together. I can now clean windows and even perform chin-ups without any pain whatsoever! I highly recommend Type I collagen to anyone who is having tendonitis problems. Although my tendonitis was due to my age (I’m 63), I am sure that it would be beneficial for athletes as well – such as tennis players and arm wrestlers especially.
For best results, take approximately three teaspoons of Bovine collagen powder per day. After the pain has gone away, one teaspoon per day is sufficient. I fill my own size 00 capsules with this powder using a simple capsule machine you can buy for $15 or so.
