Great, Effective Tablets - But Beware the Pricing
on 17 April 2016
I bought these tablets after my GP suggested I try high-dosage Glucosamine as a supplement in the management of my arthritis. There is, he said, growing clinical evidence that Glucosamine might reduce the heat and even assist the regrowth of damaged cartilage.
These tablets contain Chondroitin also, which occurs naturally in cartillage and appears to be missing in people with arthritis, and MSM which definitely does reduce inflammation and helps us to metabolise Vitamin C.
The tablets are large, but easy to take, and I have to say, have really helped my joints. They feel less painful and stronger - after three weeks' use I'm walking better and I can't attribute it to anything else. These tablets also make me feel strong in myself - and again I don't think the placebo effect accounts for it, since I have tried many things for my arthritis - some help, some don't.
On the negative side, I was really cross when I received these tablets and realised that you need to take two - so one tablet is actually 750 mg of Glucosamine, 200 mg Chondroitin and 250 mg MSM. The box on the top of the Amazon advert is completely misleading. Only the small picture much further down, which does not have the 'zoom' facility, actually shows the box you receive.
This means that this product is great, in my view, but twice as expensive as advertised.
Suitable for those who want to try a really good Glucosamine supplement - Glucosamine is made from shellfish, so beware if you are a vegetarian or allergic to seafood.
