    Eating an animal nose to tail(that includes the skin and other connective bits) and getting adequate vitamin C intake should have you covered.

    Collagen and vitamin C with around six minutes of joint movement. Then you need to wait for six hours before the tendon will respond again to some joint exercise or continuous movement. Collagen can be broken down peptides where I read that some can not get broken down into amino acids by the stomach etc. and get into the bloodstream. Scientists uses tracers fir individual amino acids then can check the blood or tissue to see if it and how quickly it gets to muscle tissue.

    Do you have any references for any of this? Not trying to catch you out it's just if there's any truth to the above I'd like to learn more.

    This may sound hokey, but my knees and elbow feel a ton better since I cut processed carbs/sugars from my diet.

    There was a time when I couldn’t do a full squat.

    I’m not keto by any means, I just tend to keep carbs lower. And I still eat some processed carbs occasionally, like pasta or bread. But they’re not a daily staple of my diet.

    Who’s to say if the two are related though.

    Add 6000 to 8000 IU of Vitamin D daily...You'll be amazed at the effects on your knees. I had pain, snap/crackle/pop like mad.

    Since adding that D, nothing.

    Some researchers will argue low carbs is anti inflammatory.

    Bone broth, liver pate, and salmon roe will have you feeling some kind of way.
    But like others have stated, it's not only about what you use, but more importantly, what you don't use...i.e. processed sugars and carbohydrates

    I have a feeling turmeric capsule helped get rid of some recent inflammation that lasted days until the turmeric.
