Was recommended this product at least 8 years ago and have been on it ever since. Once or twice I forgot to take it for a couple of weeks and was VERY sore all over. I couldn't figure out why until I realized I'd forgotten to take my glucosamine. Excellent product in helping with arthritis pain.

I take Glucosamine SULFATE) (1500mg) Chondroitin SULFATE (1200) and was able to avoid knee replacements. IMPORTANT TO KNOW: SULFATE is more expensive for manufactors, so many use HCL (less effective shown in clinical trials I read). This supplement really can work, BUT buy good name brands.
