what is the best natural remedy for joint pain?

I enjoy running. When I run every other day, my knees ache. I understand this is most likely runners knee, but are there any herbs or extracts that may help soothe the pain?

    There are actually several natural supplements that help joint health.
    The most popular are Microlactin, Tart Cherries, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM, Hyaluronic Acid, Danish Rose Hips, and Bromelain. Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM are commonly in combinations together because they work for similar aspects of joint health (and most recommend 1500 mg of Glucosamine, 1200 of Chondroitin, and various levels of MSM spread throughout the day) so that would probably be a good place to start. The down side is that those take the longest to work because they are the main nutrients that your body uses to create new cartilage, but because of that, they work the best in the long run.

    The only thing to really watch out for is allergies. Glucosamine is typically from Shellfish and Microlactin is from milk. As long as you’re not allergic to those, you should have no problem and you could safely take any number of those together. Good luck and I hope I helped!

    Make sure you aren’t running on concrete. Asphalt or other road surface is much easier on the joints.

    Glucosamine is very popular. Also cod liver oil. In homeopathy, you can take the remedy Rhus Tox if the joint pains are on the right side, i.e. right knee, right hip, and worse for damp weather with stiffness after sleep, sitting for a long time or walking too far.

    Try red onion wine (this is if you’re old enough to drink wine).
    First, take 3 red onions and cut them up into 8 pieces each. Put them in a clean jar, and drown them with one bottle red wine. Let it sit.
    After a week, drain the wine into another jar and refrigerate it. Keep the onions. Drink 50 mL of the wine twice a day and eat a few pieces of the onion if you want (they taste horrible to me).
    The wine helps with joint pain, sleeping disorders, overactive bladders, and it can lower blood pressure and blood sugar. It also prevents cancer and contains antioxidants, vitamins, and has medicinal properties.
