Does anyone take these???

Postby chookie » Mon May 12, 2014 12:56 pm

Hello :-D

Does anyone on the forum take Glucosamine for their aches and pains and does it take the edge off for them at all? I went to see my chiropractor, as I do, every 4 weeks and he told me that he doesn't usually recommend 'pills' but as glucosamine has had incredible research done around it, he is confident that it is a good one to look at taking.

I have started to get achey and stiff hands/finger joints and my feet. I get up in the mornings and sometimes the pain in them starts after being on my feet for as little as 10 minutes... then I need to sit back down.

I've jiffled you over onto here chookie with you asking about at treatment. It's a more suitable board and won't get as lost as quickly in amongst all the other topics.

The little I know about Glucosamine comes from my doglet needing to have it. From what I have found out, it helps lay down new layers of cartilage between between joints that are affected with something like arthritis, hip dysplacia etc, to help the joint move more effectively. As it takes time for new cartilage to be laid down, a loading program with a higher dose may be necessary at first for a period of time, with the dose then being dropped to the required/stated level once the loading program is finished.

I can't say if it helps with aches and pains or not, so would suggest talking to someone suitably qualified about what other ways it might be of help. I have heard of people being prescribed Glucosamine, so maybe your GP could be somewhere to start.


If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either

If you are eating a healthy diet you don't need any supplements so i would save your money and use it for a session with an acupuncturist or yoga/meditation. Beverley

Hello folks,

Yes I take Glaucosamine and have done for a few years now, I have Chronic Degenerative Disc Disease as well as FM and I do find it helps me.

There have been times I have stopped because of surgery or finances and I can certainly notice a difference, I also take Condroitin and MSM with it as the three are supposed to be more effective when taken together.
Wait till Holland and Barrat have a sale and stock up , that's what I do.

Like Libby, I have taken them for years. I have FM. I find that they really help, but they can take months to have a marked effect. I would recommend them whole heartedly. I notice the difference if I dont take them. I get them sent to me by a company called Simply Supplements. (Google them ) I find them cheaper than anyone else and the service is very good, as is the quality of their product. Never mind anyone telling you can get everything from a balance diet. If that were true most of us would be bouncing around like 5 year olds. It works for me and Libby.
