Not all Glucosamine is the same!
Many elegant and sophisticated clinical studies have recently demonstrated that people who take Glucosamine -Chondroitin for joint pain are buying the form of Glucosamine that is not effective to treat their pain. The form of Glucosamine proven to help the pain is Glucosamine Sulfate. Many companies do not follow the research and choose the cheaper, and less effective form called Glucosamine HCl. This is sad, but true. So read your labels.
Also, look for the Glucosamine Sulfate (usually combined with Chondroitin Sulfate) in an encapsulated fine powder form. These are easily absorbed, as opposed to tablets. Additionally, look for those that are filler, dye and preservative free. Let’s get healthy by being wise! If you are taking Glucosamine -Chondroitin and not getting relief…check that label. By D. L.
