    A Glucosamine with Chondroitin capsule is a good starting point to prevent joint degeneration. Magnesium is good to stop cramping as you get older also. But Yes as Macca says keeping mobile and fit is the best preventative of all.

    Make sure you do your due dilligence - take a deeper look at how things like your Glucosamine is produced, and how the body is capable or not capable of absorbing that supplement along with what the active ingredient content is in each capsule (they vary a lot) and how much you actually need (because the rest your body excretes).

    As a young lad I treated my body like an amusement park with sporting pursuits and resultant injuries like most of us out there - so need to keep all the old injuries in check as I get older. The missus has really bad knees I swear I can hear her creaking as she comes downstairs and she swears by Vital 3, Magnesium and EPO (evening primrose oil) for herself.

    Glucosamine has made a huge difference for me, but any of this stuff is not a one stop shop as you still need to keep the muscle time around the areas

    That shouldn't be an issue for me, ... on account of the lack of muscles.

    I take x2 Glucosamine/Chondroitin capsules a day as well as fish oil, swear by the stuff. Notice it big time if I stopped taking them for a few days. Got stuffed knees.

    I also gym/run 5 days a week which helps manage my old injuries, as long as i run no farther than 10-12km my knees hold up.
    Hunting is not a hobby.....its an addiction
