My Golden has been taking it for a couple of years. While he still has hip problems, they do not seem to be any worse off than they were 3 years ago.

So, if you're shaggy or hump anything you see you might have similar results.

Seriously though. I'm not sure why you would need to use it. I'm under the impression it just slows deterioration of cartilage; though I could be totally misinformed on that.

Here's a clinical trial writeup: http://nccam.nih.gov/news/2006/022206.htm

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

it was reccommended to me for exactly that reason. I had my knee scoped last week and there's a lot of cartilage damage/deterioration. and my ACL replacement is already 50% gone after only 3 years!

fyi bill, my brother has had his knee scoped a few times as well, anything to avoid more problems.

ok, vcook's brother with bad knees weighs in with:

recommend it if you're having joint or knee trouble. take whatever brand your orthapedic surgeoun recommends. downsides is he remembers the dosages being fairly high, a bit spendy, and took a while before you noticed a difference(like a month).

Without the medical jargon I'll just skip to the point. It's good stuff. Make sure it's Glucosamine Sulfate...some may try to sell you other forms. NOW is a good cheap brand.
