Special Report: What You Need To Know Before You Buy Glucosamine
Last review: 08/12/10  J.R. Rogers
Glucosamine is very promising for relief of arthritis pain and is backed by numerous double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. In these studies, glucosamine has been shown to rehabilitate cartilage and reduce the progression of osteoarthritis, and significantly lessen pain from arthritis. However, one glucosamine product can be very different from another.

When your pain relief and health is at stake, you need to know how to choose between competing products and see through the marketing hype. There are five factors that you need to take into your consideration before purchasing any glucosamine product. These are:

  • Amount of glucosamine per daily dose
  • Quality of Ingredients
  • Delivery System
  • Synergistic Ingredients
  • Price Per Day

    The method of delivery can make the difference between no pain relief and complete pain relief. Most products in the store shelves today are in capsule and pill form. However, the latest research has shown that glucosamine in liquid form is much more effective. Glucosamine provided in liquid form is absorbed more quickly, much more fully, and provides greater and longer lasting relief.

    Simply put, the higher quality of glucosamine you use, the greater your relief will be. Many companies use low or medium grade glucosamine. Therefore, you must be careful to look for the highest quality (pharmaceutical quality) if you want the fastest, fullest relief and healing.

    As far as dosage, if taking glucosamine in capsule form, you will need at least 1500mg per day. However, if taking glucosamine in liquid form, because of the very high absorption rate, you will not need a full 1500mg. 1000-1250mg per day of high quality glucosamine in liquid form is optimal.

    It is important to compare price per day and not price per product, as many companies try to fool you by providing 60 capsules or 32 oz. and not telling you until after you purchased that you must use 6 capsules or 2 oz. per day. Be careful to always compare price per day.

    Also crucial to the effectiveness of the product is the other ingredients that are included in the product. Glucosamine alone, for most people is simply not enough. To receive truly complete relief you need to look for products that combine a number of arthritis fighting ingredients. You should look for a product that besides glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine HCL, also contains arthritis-fighting ingredients such as chondroitin, boswellin, bromelain, omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids (fish oils), yucca, manganese, and vitamins A, C, and E.

    As a review, when buying glucosamine, look for a product that:
    1. is a liquid
    2. uses pharmaceutical quality liquid glucosamine
    3. has a number of other synergistic ingredients besides glucosamine.

    After a review of the leading glucosamine products on the market today, our current recommendation is Syn-flex, a pharmaceutical quality liquid glucosamine formula that contains both glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine HCL, chondroitin and ten other synergistic ingredients.
