Re: Love training, and I have a heavy build and joint issues.

Yes, I do, and sometimes I take stronger stuff.

I'm really glad you pointed out turmeric, because I've always heard about it but never gave it a try, now it will. Thanks for that.

I assume the anti-inflammatories you've been taking are something like ibuprofin, acetominophren or aspirin? Or is it something stronger? You might want to try turmeric -- that's right, the spice turmeric. It's a really great anti-inflammatory, as effective as NSAIDs or more so, without the side effects (except that it may have a blood-thinning effect -- that hasn't been established yet). I take it daily, in tablet form, to manage rheumatoid arthritis, and I also take it if I tweak something. You can't overdo it (although if you take a large amount, you may feel a little flushed) and it really works well.
