You said you took glucosamine/chondroitin, right? And that it had helped you?

Which brand do you use? There are so many out there with such price differences, and my ConsumerLab report isn't helping as much as I would like.

Thanks!

I hear Twin Labs makes one of the best. I can't remember the brand that I take but it comes in a purple bottle. Sometimes I just buy what's in GNC. I'm not loyal to any particular brand when it comes to these things...

OK, thanks for the tip. Too bad Twinlabs is one of the most expensive ones!

I am annoyed by how these are marketed -- a lot of them list the dosage as 1500/1200 mg, which is the recommended daily dose. But they fail to mention that you have to take 3 pills to get this dose. You have to read the fine print to learn what the dosage is for each particular capsule -- ranges from 300/200 to 750/600. Makes a huge difference price-wise!

Actually, considering that this is a gazillion dollar industry, I shouldn't be surprised.
