Vitamins - Calcium & Glucosamine

Age is really catching up on me..I could feel the change soon after I reached 40...First, it was my eye sight, follow by my joints, and recently, I feel increase pains on my arms and legs.  I have slowed down my consumption of coffee 2 weeks ago..and change my diet to oats for breakfast and lunch after the test on my bad cholesterol level is on the high side at 5.81.

For my joints pain, I have started with Calcium and Glucosamine last month, I know I should have consumed these vitamins many years ago, hope it is still not too late before I reach 50.

Apart from these, I am also taking Evening Primrose Oil, Vitamin C and Fish Oil on a more regular basis than last year.  I need regular exercise, that's what I am lacking, a lot of effort is needed to get myself to move.

What are the health supplements are you taking ?  Would be glad to learn from your testimonials.


  1. I'm experiencing the same too after 40! Is the Izumio having any effect?

    I take glucosamine for now.

  2. All my health problems also started to creep out when I touched 40! :(
    I wanted to take glucosamine for my knee pains but I read that glucosamine can also raise blood sugar since glucose is part of glucosamine's structure.
    I take fish oil 3x daily, Calcium, Super Lutein and Izumio.
    I hope your cholesterol reading will go down soon :)

  3. I only take Super Lutein and Izumio. Prior to this, I take no supps. I think I am the oldest among you lot...but thankfully no joints pain so far.

  4. I've been taking about 5 types of supplements since I was about 30. It helps a lot as I don't exercise & love unhealthy food. Hahaha! Never too late to start :D

  5. I am taking Liquid Calcium capsules and fish oil capsules, sometimes I can feel pain in my joints too, I am in my 40s

  6. I have been taking Vitamin Calcium & Multi Vitamin on regular basis over the years. I could feel some increased energy to my bones & joints the next morning after taking it.

    I would highly recommend anyone to take Yomeishu like daily or few times a week as the ingredients are really good. It helps to build immunity, keeps the organs warm and moisturized besides helping the respiratory areas. Each time before we went on winter trips overseas, I would drink Yomeishu nightly for 2 weeks. When the temperature dropped to zero and below, my wife who has weaker immunity could stand the extreme cold there.

    As for my joints that started to show signs of needle aches sometimes, I have started to punch and kick the boxing bag in the gym. I would hit or box the bag using my fist, back hand, wrists, elbow, knees, legs, ankles and etc. I would repeat many times and had good sleep that night. I could feel all the blood circulations running fast at the joints and hoped that it could get rid of wind to prevent arthritis. Just my 2 cents.

    Health is Wealth. I became a paranoid on prevention issues after sending my aged parents to see doctors almost weekly with long list of sickness. I paid attention on their flamboyant & active social lifestyles when younger where they lacked the correct exercise and supplements intake.

    Just my 2 cents.
