People were talking about still skateboarding in their forties thanks to taking glucosamine.

Skateboarding is a popular and worldwide sport. This year is the first year Street League Skateboarding (together with Nike) is having a world tour with stops in Brazil, Spain, Germany and the United States. Skateboarders, especially competitive ones, can find themselves suffering from knee problems and other joint issues from continuous crouching and landing on hard surfaces. Glucosamine supplements like Liquid Health’s Opti-Glucosamine can help to alleviate these problems.

Joint problems can happen for a lot of reasons including age and excessive wear and tear on the body. Athletes are notorious for being hard on their bodies, and skateboarders are no exception. Repetitious hard landings and long periods of crouching lead to joint problems, especially in the knees. In order to maintain range of motion and flexibility and reduce pain, skateboarders are using supplements including glucosamine and chondroitin to combat these issues.

Liquid Health, Inc. offers a liquid glucosamine supplement that combines the proven effectiveness of glucosamine and chondroitin. Glucosamine and chondroitin help to relieve joint pain by reducing the loss of cartilage as well as decreasing inflammation in the troublesome joint.

“We had no idea of the need for glucosamine among skateboarders,” said Rob Bonham, Online Marketing Directing for Liquid Health, Inc., “Until we saw it popping up on skateboarding discussion boards. People were talking about still skateboarding in their forties thanks to taking glucosamine.”
