Phosoplex for arthritis

Posted by jenn (My Page) on

My husband is scheduled for shoulder replacement surgery very soon. His x-ray shows that he has almost no cartilage in his shoulder joint and he is now in chronic pain all the time.

I read about a product calledl Phosoplex which is rated by Consumer Health Digest as the #1 joint support product (Top 25 Joint Support Products). I know nothing about that site.

Has anyone tried it?

Does anyone know about any other treatments that work as these products claim: lubricate the joint, rebuild cartilage, provide measurable pain relief?

My husband is willing to try anything as long as it is safe and gives good results. He might even be willing to make additional dietary changes if he was convinced they would work. We know white sugar and white flour aren't good, but I read a statement somewhere saying that white flour actually contributes to the degeneration of joints.

I tend to be skeptical about alternative treatments and claims about foods reversing the effects of degenerative joint disease, yet some of it makes sense and I'd like to help him find something that would really help.

Jenn, it's principle ingredient seems to be Glucosimine, which can (but not always) work wonders. My husband and I have both taken Osteo-Biflex (which is also listed) with very good results. It does take a few weeks to rebuild the cartiledge. Even the doctors OK using glucosimine because it might do worlds of good with no side effects. It certainly would hurt to try it. I don't know what else Phosoplex might have in it. There could be something that would give him trouble. Check it out.

Thanks AP. He is taking Move Free now which is also on the list but hasn't noticed any improvement in his shoulder after several weeks of taking it.

So, it really is possible to rebuild cartilage where there currently is almost none at all? I thought that claim was hocus-pocus. Wouldn't it also build cartilage in other joints that don't need it?

The link below at Amazon lists the ingredients. I'm wondering about the intake of copper and boron, he might already be getting those in another supplment so he'll need to be careful about that.

Thanks,
Jen

Here is a link that might be useful: Phosoplex at Amazon

I really don't know how it works. But I do know that it has worked magic with men who have torn knee cartledge from old sports (think football!)injuries. It seems to at least form enough within the joint that it allows it to move smoothly. I think it does best on the larger joints. It really helped my hips, but did nothing for my feet and hands.

He also has a large bone spur in the shoulder and that is limiting his range of motion. So surgery is in order no matter what he does. I think I will order a bottle of the Phosoplex for him and see how he feels by the time surgery rolls around. The pain is much worse than the limited ROM.

Thanks,
Jen

Is it best to take the pills directly before the morning meal? or to take it and wait a while before eating?

Thanks
