Fix Your Aching Joints?

Simply amazing and cheap. Do you have creaky knees and achy joints? Here is a home remedy I'm using, but it took a few days to work. Again, this is a home remedy with no research or testing behind it.

Take a tablespoon of unflavored gelatin per day for two weeks, then a tablespoon of unflavored gelatin every other day thereafter.

I bought a box of it at the grocery store for $1.50, next to the flavored Jello gelatins. I tried it for a week and by the forth day I was bouncing up the stairs without thinking about my creaky knees. Wow. 

I put it in smoothies, on salads, in drinks—note that i stopped putting it in my hot tea because the gelatin kept coating the hot spoon. After a week, I bought a one-pound box of this stuff on, and instead of doing a tbsp every other day, I sprinkle some on my scrambled egg each morning just before it's done cooking. So far, so good.

Hi Mack,

I've been using something similar for my hips and knees for nearly a year. I buy the liquid fruit pectin (found near Jell-O and also near canning supplies--brand name "Certo"), and mix a large spoonful of it into a half glass of dark grape juice each morning. It took a couple of weeks to feel the effects, but the difference in my pain level was dramatic.
