Hi,
I take MSM/Glucosamine on a daily basis. I only take one capsule. I don't know how much it helps but all the health professionals I see say it certainly can't hurt. I also use the msm/glucosamine gel rub on my jaw and neck muscles and Iknow that works for sure. I do use it at least 4 or 5 times a day when the pain is bad. well worth a try because my husband and friends have tried it on sore backs etc and sayit definately helps.

When you say gel is it actually a gel-like substance that you just rub in or is it some type of capsule you have to break? Does it have any odor? How long does the pain relief last? Thanks.

Hi,
Yes, the gel is a rub on. I use a brand made by Swiss which comes in a tube, it has a menthol odor which only lasts about 45 seconds and it is also non-greasy. I find the relief lasts for 2 to 4 hours depending on how bad the pain is. Sometimes when the pain is bad is takes the edge of and makes it bearable. There are also MSM creams available at any health food store.
