I'm a 49 year old distance runner who developed upper hamstring tendinitis.
Q. Dear Terry, “I'm a 49 year old distance runner and about 4 months ago I developed upper hamstring tendinitis that has halted my ability to run. I've been going to lots of physical therapy and recently my chiropractor, but recovery/progress has been slow at best. Is there anything I can take that might help speed along the healing process?” — Tom H., Nashua, NH
A. Dear Tom, Good news, I do have some suggestions.
I would first recommend trying a combination of high absorption curcumin with boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address any pain you may be experiencing. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking one to two capsules of this blend three times a day.
To help assist in the repair process, I prefer a multi-ingredient formula specific to connective tissue. It should include the active forms of vitamins B6 and B12, along with magnesium, manganese, bromelain, zinc, vitamin C, niacinamide, and boswellia. One of the most crucial ingredients is manganese. You need at least 36 mg of manganese to have an impact, so make sure the dosing of this critical mineral is adequate. I recommend taking 1 capsule of this blend three times daily.
