Quoted from Spring
I suppose a big turkey leg would be suitable - what do you think? I've always saved my turkey broth for use in various dishes. I love it!

I also use turkey bones to make broth for soup, etc.  I'm not sure if they qualify for marrow bones or not, but I do crack / break them in two to get the richness from the center.

Okay, the Encyclopedia shows ...   N-acetyl glucosamine for O   ....  The arthritis book corroborates the above re: O

Well I picked up some NAG (N-Acetyl Glucomanine) at the Vitamin Store.  Is this supplement more for the cartilage and will it help the meniscus?  Is there something else I could be taking besides NAG for my meniscus?

Perhaps this won't help you but it has made a huge difference to my husband's bad knee.  Most often when he wakes up in the morning he almost falls when he tries to walk, but after he's on his feet a while his knee gets better.  It's probably arthritis, which might not be your problem at all.

Anyway, since we've been eating about a dozen black sweet cherries every day his knee is SO much better!   You might give it a try.  When they aren't fresh I use frozen......organic in both forms.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

They probably help relax the muscles and reduce pulling on the inflamed areas in his joints.  Also may thin his blood and increase circulation to his joints.  Since he is more relaxed, he probably sleeps better, too.
