Joint supplements that actually work?

Does anyone take something for their joins that actually works? 
 
I have used Glucosamine in the past and didn't notice any difference.
 
Thanks

I've posted on a similar topic on UKM but i'm currently using one of either:
Orange Triad Multi (comes with a joint formula - the US version (linked) is significantly better than the EU version)
Animal Flex
 
Bulk Powders have launched a new product called Mobilise (clicky) which looks like a quality product.

I've never found any supplement which makes a noticeable difference.
 
I take a decent dosage of omega 3 for the various health benefits (and it's relatively cheap) and eat plenty of oily fish and natural anti inflammatories, which may help but I can't really gauge it.
 
The best results I've found is by taking prevention and intervention actions, such as yoga, flossing, banding and wearing sleeves.

Many good supplememts contain turmeric/Curcumin and Piperine but nowhere near enough (long term studies done on huge dosing show no ill effects).

I've tried all sorts of supplememts and none work (for me). I take 6g of turmeric per day with ground black pepper (piperine) with amazing results, not only for my joints but other effects too. So much good consistent research on the stuff. A great anti inflammatory, immune booster, mild pain killer etc...

Only thing you need to do is build up dose to ascertain gut tolerance (some people can get mild discomfort with higher levels) and build up slowly.

Oh the stuff is also a powerful SERM/anti E. My primary reason for taking it was to see if it would clear 8 year old gyno that Tamox wouldn't touch, 3-4 weeks in and 70% gone.

Oh and if you do decide to try it again due to its low bioavailability as well as taking it with ground black pepper you need to take it with some kind of fat (the Indian way where they know how to use it). I have it with some nut butter or olive oil.

Flossing is basically binding of joints, muscles or ligaments with some rubber tape, then moving them so that it builds friction, then releasing.  You can get floss tape from strength shop and just youtube it.  I tend to use it when I've got some sort of injury or discomfort.  Good for tendonitis too.

I'll second Dav on the Turmeric.
 
I try to include turmeric, galangal, ginger (all types of ginger), garlic or ceylon cinnamon in just about everything.  Turmeric is a bugger for staining everything yellow though...

Seconding Orange Triads. I use them along with a well made fish oil supplement and it makes a positive difference. I have found that Orange Triads also help out with my gut and I bloat far less. I actually went a 6 month period without them and it was noticable how much worse my joints were along with my digestive health.

Ive tried turmeric tablets but felt it wasn't enough.
