New Glucosamine Study

A blog I found recently called Conditioning Research reports on a new study of the effects of glucosamine on osteo arthritis. The two year study found no benefit to the stuff as regards arthritis or joint spacing. I don't use it, but I hear its expensive. Anyone have success with it?

The blog is w/f/s/ and can be found at

http://conditioningresearch.blogspot...-value-of.html

The study itself is here, also w/f/s

Re: New Glucosamine Study

I have arthritis in my elbows and wrists. I take glucosamine and condroitint (sp?) along with MSM, it helps my aches and pains quite a bit.

Re: New Glucosamine Study

I take Glucosamine/MSM pills daily, and it's a huge help!
At first you think it's not doing anything, but take it for a while, then miss it for a week or so, you will feel the difference.
