value of glucosamine

I severely injured my thumb. I started using glucosamine and the injury was almost completely gone after about 6 weeks.. So I decided to stop with the glucosamine. The pain returned in about 4 days. So I am back to using it. The pain is again starting to subside. At least for me the value of glucosamine is real.

Re: value of glucosamine

Glucosomine can be used to repair cartilage and other body tissues. If it's helping you that's great!

How often and how much do you use? Pill or powder added to something? Thanks.

To last post. I use 2000 mg of glucosamine sulfate twice a day. I buy the most economical brand from Walmart.
