RicB · Taken for 6 months to 1 year · December 1, 2019

Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM (chondroitin / glucosamine / methylsulfonylmethane) for Dietary Supplementation: “I’ve had left knee pain along side elbow and shoulder stiffness in the mornings. After two-three weeks of taking the Glucosamine with Chondroitin my stillness and knee pain has gone. I notice now every morning when I go down the stairs that my knee no longer feels weak or feels like its about to give out. Shoulders and elbows bend perfectly first thing in the morning. I have Diabetes and it doesn’t seem to impact my glucose readings or levels.”

For Osteoarthritis: “I have been taking this for 20 years off and on and I can tell you now if I don't take it I cannot move and the pain is unbearable. This works for me and I have had ups and downs with it. I use to take it anytime I'd day without food, this made me feel nausea so now I know only after food. Stick to it, it works.”

For Dietary Supplementation: “I have been taking Chondroitin/glucosamine for 25 years. I noticed how it really helped when I was on a trip and hadn't taken it for about 4 days and I could hardly turn my head for the pain in my neck and how it quit when I went back on them. I really never connected the neck pain with the supplement until it happened again. About a year ago I started having severe pain in my hips and hip joints and it got so bad I could hardly walk and had a hard time moving after sitting. It would wake me up in the night. Just taking the Chondroitin/Glucosamine wasn't relieving it. I started adding MSM to the Chondroitin/Glucosamine and in a short time the pain started going away. I don't know if it was just the MSM that caused the improvement or not, but I now take all 3 religiously and the pain is gone now. I can immediately start moving when getting up from sitting and can now sleep through the night.”

For Osteoarthritis: “I had elbow pain and was unable to straighten my arms. I tried an expensive cream that worked and saw MSM as the active ingredient so I began taking MSM tablets and it was better after 2 weeks. My pain was in the spot in the back where you hit your "funny bone".”

Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM (chondroitin / glucosamine / methylsulfonylmethane) for Osteoarthritis: “I have been taking Glucosamine HCI with MSM for about a two week period and have had a very positive result with my knee pain. I have articular cartilage syndrome of my right knee. My only complaint is that my tail bone started hurting like crazy, it feels like it is swollen and hurts to sit down and bend down. This started after I took the glucosamine.”

For Osteoarthritis: “While I was able to take this it helped my knee pain a little. Problem was severe swelling in my feet an ankles. Began about 5-6 days after starting. I quit and tried again two months later with the same results.”

For Osteoarthritis: “The pain in my right hip and lower back from arthritis was getting excruciating!! I am a nurse, and working about 70 hours a week...it was getting hard for me to manage. The pain was so bad it was keeping me from sleeping. Started taking Gluc--Condr--MSM. Within 2 days I had almost ZERO pain!! It feels like a miracle to me!! The only side effect I noted was bloating and a lot of gas. I can live with that!! I have not been taking with food, so that might help...”

For Osteoarthritis: “Hello I bought a supplement that contains glucosamine chondroitin and msm I took it and it gave me horrible vomiting and an excruciating headache. Now I am afraid to continue taking it Since I only took one dose and the adverse effect was something immediate and very strong, now I do not know what to take to solve this problem of lack of cartilage in the knees”

Wellesse Joint Movement Glucosamine (chondroitin / glucosamine / methylsulfonylmethane) for Osteoarthritis: “I used this joint formula as prescribed (30 ml/day) for about 2 weeks. As it was recommended for 30 days to observe results, I couldn’t say for sure if it worked. Very easy to administer. However, I noticed constant burping for about 4 hours, diarrhea throughout the day and general stomach upset so have discontinued use as suggested on the bottle. Not sure which ingredient is causing the problem in the formula. Upon other research, the recommended dosage of glucosamine is up to 1500mg/day. This contains 2000mg/day. Maybe too strong a dosage along with other ingredients?”
