  • Glucosamine supplements

    Does anyone here take these? Have you noticed a difference? I used to take it years back for a bothersome hip, and yes, I can say it did help me,,,since then , no hip pain, a fluke maybe? who knows. Anyways, I was telling my DS about it, he has a bad knee, and back probs, thought he might benefit from taking glucosamine. I think that I will start taking it again myself as all these new pains keep cropping up.

    I'm taking a supplement now that has Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM plus gelatine and it seems to be helping me. My knee doesn't hurt half as much as it did before.

      I started taking some about 3 weeks ago, but a doctor told me it can take up to 3 or 4 months before you can notice a difference so not to give up too soon.

        DH has taken this for a couple of years for his knee (he had major surgery) and he swears by it. DS has back problems and started taking it and it's helped him, too. You do have to take it for a while before it starts to help.
        We give a pet glucosamine supplement to our older dog (16) for her joints, too, so I guess it's a family thing!

          What brands are good ones? Babe would benefit from these, I'm sure... but he has a precarious digestive system (he's kind of a hypochondriac sometimes) and wouldn't keep 'em up if they had any kinds of side effects.

          I think I'd benefit too, actually!!

            DH just takes the Berkely-Jensen brand from BJ's Wholesale. He takes the triple strength...750mg glucosamine and 600 mg chondroitin. I'm pretty sure he takes two a day.

              I take the Osteo Bi Flex kind, Dr. recommended it for my arthritis in my knees, it may help some, but I still have some pain.DH takes it too. I have told my sons when they reach 30, they should start taking it to ward off any future problems.

                Wellsms, DH took the Osteo Bi-Flex for a long time, too. Then he found out from the Ortho Dr. that the BJ's brand had exactly the same ingredients and same strength and was a bit less expensive. Do you have BJ's in your area?

                  Is BJ a drug store? I don't think we have it around here, but I think I will search the internet for it today.

                    BJ's is a wholesale place. Kind of like Sam's club, only we don't shop at Wal-Mart here, so I don't know if they have anything similar.

                      How I wish it was that simple. MRI says my kneecap is detatched. Knee reconstruction, here I come.

                        WOW. i'm amazed. has anyone gone to a choriprater (sp)? In most cases of joint pain it's because one leg is longer and is compensating for the other. Sorry, just my 1 1/2 cents worth. Laura

                          I have taken it..... I have been drinking Joint Juice, but it is only Glucosomine. Has anyone tried Elation? I gues it has both. Joice Juice is okay, but carbonated. I wish it was not carbonated.

                            Our dog tore her ACL a few years back. Even after the surgery, she would hold up her leg and not put her weight on it. The glucosamine led to a great improvement in about a week. We now give her glucosamine and chondroitin.
