Glucosamine and Chondroitin with MSM are known to be natural supplements that help repair cartilage damaged from degenerative arthritis. (1) In Dr. Oz’s arthritis healing article, he reports that “joint cartilage can be repaired using a combination of glucosamine sulfate (most important: 750 mg 2 times a day for at least 6 weeks), MSM (2-3 grams a day), and, if the arthritis is severe, Chondroitin (less important: 400 mg 3x day). It is also critical that you get broad nutritional support (a good multi-vitamin powder supplement is best)” (1). While I’m sure that our joint cartilage will never be what it was in teenage years, I would like to improve it’s current condition.
I am thrilled to try Vitavana Ultra Glucosamine and Chondroitin with MSM . My husband has been diagnosed arthritis in multiple joints. Years of flooring installation work, playing sports and probably a genetic component have left his joints in a sorry state. We’ve had x-rays and MRIs that confirmed his diagnosis several years ago. He has agreed to take this supplement for me and report on his findings, here’s to hoping his cartilage improves!
Vitavana Ultra Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM Joint Formula contains 4700mg Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM per Serving. One serving is 5 capsules. I really like that this product has capsules with powder inside. Other glucosamine products we’ve tried are hard pills and I imagine that these dissolve better. The package came sealed on top, without any cotton or preserver inside. Easy, right?
So far hubby reports that he doesn’t feel any different, but it’s just been a week. I hope that over time this helps with his mobility and discomfort. He does say that these pills aren’t hard to swallow and actually swallows the 5 Glucosamine along with the Krill oil. He’s taking these in combination with Ultra Omega-3 Ultra Purified Krill Oil which we have reviwed too.
