The Now Glucosamine and MSM does seem to help my back quite a bit, without any side effects. I've tried MSM by itself, and it doesn't seem to maintain quite the same level of relief. I'm using it to help with a thin disc and a bit of arthritis in the lower back, at the base of the spine. I would say that the anti-inflammatory effects are also keeping the muscles from spasming when the area gets a little tweaked, which is something I was having a real problem with. From the info I've found on this topic, condroitin is not nearly as easily absorbed by the digestive system, so it's better to go with MSM and glucosamine, which are precursors of condroitin, and are much more readily absorbed.

WOW!! I cant' say enough about this product. My knees were hell. you could hear the bone rubbing on bone when i walk down the steps of the subway. I was told i had osteoarthis. i took this product and it brought me a long painful way. it really helped. i thought i would be cripple from the pain. you can't even exercise. now along with another product for inflamation i can walk normal again. the 4 stars **** is how far it brought me and the 5 is for the second product that took me the rest of the pain free way. I believe wtihout this product i would not have come this far.

regarding the product it seems to be good as of now. secondly i don't have any choice either. would like to express my views which i experienced by doing transaction with you. The prices never showed that the customs duty will be extra. I came to know only when i received the delivery from DHL . they said we are not in the picture and iHerb is responsible for informing you before buying the product. so this was a sad experience while dealing with your company. I would request your company to be clear when u show the prices on ur online site. rest all was ok Thanks

... then a little less so. My chiropractor indicated I should give it a good 3-months to see consistent benefits. I may try the Hyraluronic Acid along with it to boost the effects.

My second bottle. I always have persistent knee problems. This seems to help enough that my joints don't pull and snap so much that it hurts when I run.
