Glucosamine sulphate tablets

When I was 2 wk into the programme I started with the dodgy knees during the doctor visit I mentioned I'd started on glucosamine tablets , he told me I didn't need them there just for arthritis . Well regardless I carried on taking them with the cod liver oil . I've run out of glucosamine & was wondering if to replace them ,I no longer have knee problems just wanted some advice & wondering I'm any of you take them arthritis or not ?

  • Well, I do take glucosamine but it's hard to know whether it has a good effect as you don't know how you would be if you weren't taking them! On the whole I feel it can't be doing any harm and may just be helping. I find my arthritis is much affected by what activity I have been doing and by the weather! Running does not seem to have made it any worse.

  • Cod liver oil is good for the joints, never taken Glucosamine so can't help there.

  • Been taking Glucosamine high dose for a year now and my joints are better than before. MY GP agrees I should take them but it may be if your younger ( I am over 50), they are not deemed necessary. Just a thought.

  • Well I'm 55 & have taken the ones I purchased , so I think I'll get some more . It was the doctor what put me off , saying there for arthritis & I don't need them .

  • I take them. My chiropractor recommended them when he was in the long process of straightening out my spine, and I've just kept on taking them to help protect my cartilages.
