I started taking glucosamine as a supplement for my sore hip. The sore hip comes from running and walking the golf course mostly , not riding. My blood pressure has always been normal and my at rest heart rate is about 50 because of all of the riding that I do. However this year when I went in for my annual physical my blood presure was elevated to 145 over 82.
I heard that glucosamine has been known to increase blood pressure in some people. I stopped taking glucosamine and will check again in about a month. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm 52 and have never had any health concerns due in large part to the bike. At least I truly believe that.
